A Women’s Lectionary – Annunciation of the Lord
15 The LordI has taken away the judgmentsJ against you,
he has turned away your enemies.
The king of Israel, the Lord, is in your midst;K
you shall fearL disasterM no more.
16 On that day it shall be said to Jerusalem:
Do not fear, O Zion;
do not let your handsN grow weak.O
20 At that time I will bring you home,
at the time when I gather you;
for I will make you renowned and praised
among all the peoplesII of the earth,
when I restoreJJ your fortunesKK
before your eyes, says the Lord.
