Nahum 3:1-3 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

Ruin Imminent and Inevitable

Ah! City of bloodshed,

    utterly deceitful, full of booty—
    no end to the plunder!
The crack of whip and rumble of wheel,
    galloping horse and bounding chariot!
Horsemen charging,
    flashing sword and glittering spear,
piles of dead,
    heaps of corpses,
dead bodies without end—
    they stumble over the bodies!

Nahum 3:6-7 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

I will throw filth at you
    and treat you with contempt,
    and make you a spectacle.
Then all who see you will shrink from you and say,
‘Nineveh is devastated; who will bemoan her?’
    Where shall I seek comforters for you?

Matthew 16:24-28 New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition (NRSVACE)

The Cross and Self-Denial

24 Then Jesus told his disciples, ‘If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. 25 For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. 26 For what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life?

27 ‘For the Son of Man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay everyone for what has been done. 28 Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom.’
