A reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah

On this mountain the Lord of hosts
  will provide for all peoples
On this mountain he will destroy
  the veil that veils all peoples,
The web that is woven over all nations;
  he will destroy death forever.
The Lord God will wipe away
  the tears from all faces;
The reproach of his people he will remove
  from the whole earth; for the Lord has spoken.
On that day it will be said:
  “Behold our God, to whom we looked to save us!
This is the Lord for whom we looked;
  let us rejoice and be glad that he has saved us!”

The word of the Lord.
