scripture reading for feast of Epiphany

Rise up in splendor, Jerusalem! Your light has come,
the glory of the Lord shines upon you!
See, darkness covers the earth,
and thick clouds the peoples;
but upon you the Lord shines,
and over you appears his glory.
Nations shall walk by your light,
and kings by your shining radiance.
Raise your eyes and look about;
They all gather and come to you:
your sons come grom afar,
and your daughters in the arms of their nurses.

Then you shall be radiant at what you see,
your heart shall throb and overflow,
for the riches of he sea shall be emptied out before you,
the wealth of nations shall be brought to you
Caravans of camels shall fill you,
dromedaries from Midian and Ephah;
all from Sheba shall come
bearing gold and frankincense,
and proclaiming the praises of the Lord.

                                                                  Isaiah 60:1-6
