Isaiah 1:16-20 (Vespers, 7th reading)

“Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil,
learn to do good; seek justice, rebuke the oppressor; defend the fatherless, plead for the widow.
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.
If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword”; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
