First Reading

Isaiah 22, 19-23

I shall hound you from your office, I shall snatch you from your post

and, when that day comes, I shall summon my servant Eliakim son of Hilkiah.

I shall dress him in your tunic, I shall put your sash round his waist, I shall invest him with your authority; and he will be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the House of Judah.

I shall place the key of David's palace on his shoulder; when he opens, no one will close, when he closes, no one will open.

I shall drive him like a nail into a firm place; and he will become a throne of glory for his family.
