Psalm 23:1-6 and Isaiah 25:6-10a
1 A Psalm of David. The Lord directs me, and nothing will be lacking to me.
2 He has settled me here, in a place of pasture. He has led me out to the water of refreshment.
3 He has converted my soul. He has led me away on the paths of justice, for the sake of his name.
4 For, even if I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils. For you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they have given me consolation.
5 You have prepared a table in my sight, opposite those who trouble me. You have anointed my head with oil, and my cup, which inebriates me, how brilliant it is!
6 And your mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and so may I dwell in the house of the Lord for length of days.
6 And the Lord of hosts will cause all the peoples on this mountain to feast on fatness, to feast on wine, a fatness full of marrow, a purified wine.
7 And he will cast down violently, on this mountain, the face of the chains, with which all peoples had been bound, and the net, with which all nations had been covered.
8 He will violently cast down death forever. And the Lord God will take away the tears from every face, and he will take away the disgrace of his people from the entire earth. For the Lord has spoken it.
9 And they will say in that day: "Behold, this is our God! We have waited for him, and he will save us. This is the Lord! We have endured for him. We will exult and rejoice in his salvation."
10 For the hand of the Lord will rest upon this mountain.
