Advent I: A Righteous Branch...

Behold the days are coming, declares the Lord,
when I will fulfill the promise I made
to the house of Israel
and the house of Judah.

In those days and at that time

I will cause a righteous Branch
to spring up from David,

and He shall execute
justice and righteousness
in the land.

In those days Judah will be saved
and Jerusalem will dwell securely.

And this is the name
by which it will be called:
The LORD is our righteousness.

Jeremiah 33:14-16 ESV
