Isaiah 45:8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

Let justice descend, you heavens, like dew from above,
    like gentle rain let the clouds drop it down.
Let the earth open and salvation bud forth;
    let righteousness spring up with them![a]
    I, the Lord, have created this.

Footnotes:

  1. 45:8 The Vulgate rendering gave a messianic sense to this verse, using “just one” and “savior” in place of “justice” and “salvation,” phraseology taken over in the Advent liturgy, e.g., the “Rorate coeli.”

Joel 2:23 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

23 Children of Zion, delight
    and rejoice in the Lord, your God!
For he has faithfully given you the early rain,[a]
    sending rain down on you,
    the early and the late rains as before.

Footnotes:

  1. 2:23 This autumn rain teaches the people to recognize God’s compassionate presence in nature and history. There is a play on the double meaning of the Hebrew word moreh: “early rain” and “teacher.” In the Dead Sea Scrolls, the word is used in the phrase “teacher (= moreh) of righteousness.”
