First Reading for the Thursday of the 1st Week of Advent

Isaiah 26:1-6

Summary: Judah celebrates their strong, protected city, welcoming the just nation that trusts in the everlasting Lord, who humbles the mighty and uplifts the needy and poor.

Song of Judah's Salvation

On that day, they will sing this song in the land of Judah:

“A strong city have we; he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us. Open up the gates to let in a nation that is just, one that keeps faith. A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace; in peace, for its trust in you.”

Trust in the LORD forever! For the LORD is an eternal Rock. He humbles those in high places, and the lofty city he brings down; He tumbles it to the ground, levels it with the dust. It is trampled underfoot by the needy, by the footsteps of the poor.
