Reading 1 Ez 16:1-15, 60, 63
Or:Ez 16:59-63Thus says the LORD:I will deal with you according to what you have done,you who despised your oath, breaking a covenant.Yet I will remember the covenant I made with you when you were a girl,and I will set up an everlasting covenant with you.Then you shall remember your conduct and be ashamedwhen I take your sisters, those older and younger than you,and give them to you as daughters,even though I am not bound by my covenant with you.For I will re-establish my covenant with you,that you may know that I am the LORD,that you may remember and be covered with confusion,and that you may be utterly silenced for shamewhen I pardon you for all you have done, says the Lord GOD.
