First Reading for the 2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Isaiah 49:3, 5-6

Summary: God calls Israel his servant, destined to bring back Jacob and be a light to all nations, spreading salvation everywhere.

Israel, God's Light to the Nations

The LORD said to me: You are my servant, Israel, through whom I show my glory.

Now the LORD has spoken who formed me as his servant from the womb, that Jacob may be brought back to him and Israel gathered to him; and I am made glorious in the sight of the LORD, and my God is now my strength!

It is too little, the LORD says, for you to be my servant, to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and restore the survivors of Israel; I will make you a light to the nations, that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.
