Lydenstyd: Vyfde Sondag in Lydenstyd

Eerste lesing

16Long ago the LORD made a road through the sea,

a path through the swirling waters.

17He led a mighty army to destruction,

an army of chariots and horses.

Down they fell, never to rise,

snuffed out like the flame of a lamp!

18But the LORD says,

“Do not cling to events of the past

or dwell on what happened long ago.

19Watch for the new thing I am going to do.

It is happening already — you can see it now!

I will make a road through the wilderness

and give you streams of water there.

20Even the wild animals will honour me;

jackals and ostriches will praise me

when I make rivers flow in the desert

to give water to my chosen people.

21They are the people I made for myself,

and they will sing my praises!”
