A Reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah 48: 17-29
|Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: I am the Lord, your God, who teaches you beneficial things, who guides you in the way that you walk.
|If only you had paid attention to my commandments! Your peace would have been like a river, and your justice would have been like the waves of the sea,
|and your offspring would have been like the sand, and the stock from your loins would have been like its stones. His name would not have passed away, nor would it have been worn away before my face.
