Isaiah 54:7-8; Matthew 13:12

rFor a brief moment I deserted you,

but with great compassion I will gather you.

rIn overflowing anger for a moment

I hid my face from you,

sbut with everlasting love I will have compassion on you,

says the Lord, your Redeemer.


12 zFor to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, aeven what he has will be taken away.
