print multiple lines from text file based on pattern list

I have a text file with a list of items/patterns:


I would like to print those lines which match from a tab-delimited file containing many many more lines:

Can grep process a pattern file? It seems as if it should, however, I have not had success. sed, awk? Please help. Thanks.
