(21. Sunday in Ordinary Time)
I PLACE THE KEY OF THE HOUSE OF DAVID UPON HIS SHOULDER.
And I will drive thee out from thy station, and depose thee from thy ministry.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will call my servant Eliacim the son of Helcias,
And I will clothe him with thy robe, and will strengthen him with thy girdle, and will give thy power into his hand: and he shall be as a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Juda.
And I will lay the key of the house of David upon his shoulder: and he shall open, and none shall shut: and he shall shut, and none shall open.
And I will fasten him as a peg in a sure place, and he shall be for a throne of glory to the house of his father.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
