The first Nocturn readings  (for the 4th Sunday) for Matins are from Hosea 1:1-11.  The second Nocturn readings (on them) are from St Augustine's City of God (Book 18, ch 28).

This week's Gospel (for the Sixth Sunday after Epiphany), is the parable of the Mustard Seed, from St Matthew 24: 15-35.  The third Nocturn readings are from St Jerome's sermons on Matthew.
