Parsing text

How can I parse a bunch of words from a text file?

For example I have a file that contains a list of words Ex-
a
the
there
is
etc
and I want to take this file annd remove these words from another text file that conatins the data Ex.
There is a lot of text with the following parsing data that needs to be parsed and only the keywords should remain.

I know I can use the regular expressions to search for a words and replace it with someting else or nothing.  But how do I do it for a list of words?

Any suggestions appreciated?
