Isaiah 22:1-8a

22The oracle concerning the valley of vision. What do you mean that you have gone up, all of you, to the housetops, 2you that are full of shoutings, tumultuous city, exultant town? Your slain are not slain by the sword, nor are they dead in battle. 3Your rulers have all fled together; they were captured without the use of a bow. All of you who were found were captured, though they had fled far away. 4Therefore I said: Look away from me, let me weep bitter tears; do not try to comfort me for the destruction of my beloved people. 5For the Lord God of hosts has a day of tumult and trampling and confusion in the valley of vision, a battering down of walls and a cry for help to the mountains. 6Elam bore the quiver with chariots and cavalry, and Kir uncovered the shield. 7Your choicest valleys were full of chariots, and the cavalry took their stand at the gates.

1 Peter 5:1-5, 12-14

And all of you must clothe yourselves with humility in your dealings with one another, for “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” 12Through Silvanus, whom I consider a faithful brother, I have written this short letter to encourage you and to testify that this is the true grace of God. Stand fast in it. 13Your sister church in Babylon, chosen together with you, sends you greetings; and so does my son Mark. 14Greet one another with a kiss of love. Peace to all of you who are in Christ.
