TWENTY-NINTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME — Year A

First Reading: Isaiah 45:1, 4-6

A reading from the book of the prophet Isaiah.

Thus says Our God to the anointed one, Cyrus,

whom Our God has taken by the right hand

to subdue nations

and strip the loins of monarchs,

forcing doors open before Cyrus

and leaving the gates unbarred.

For the sake of Leah and Rachel and Jacob,

of Israel, my chosen ones,

I have called you by your name,

conferring a title though you do not know me.

I am the Most High, and there is no other,

there is no God besides me.

It is I who arm you, though you know me not,

that nations may know from the rising to the setting of

the sun that, apart from me, all is nothing.

I am Your God, there is no other.

The Word of God recorded in the book of the prophet Isaiah.
