The scriptures read are Zephaniah 2, Psalm 131 and Mark 9.
Zephaniah 2. Repentance will save people from God's judgment. Verse 3's assertion that the penitent will be hid from God's anger is interesting seeing that Zephaniah means "God has hidden (or protected.)."
Things will not go well for the enemies of God's people. Nineveh will be an utter ruin.
Psalm 131. This contemplative song complements the content of this psalm. Then it turns warmly joyful. Then back to quiet contentment. Lovely.
Mark 9. For my reflections on this chapter, click here.
