    A Language I Had Not Known

    A Language I Had Not Known

    Psalm 81

    1 Sing aloud to God our strength;
        shout for joy to the God of Jacob!
    2 Raise a song; sound the tambourine,
        the sweet lyre with the harp.
    3 Blow the trumpet at the new moon,
        at the full moon, on our feast day.
    4 For it is a statute for Israel,
        a rule of the God of Jacob.
    5 He made it a decree in Joseph
        when he went out over the land of Egypt.
    I hear a language I had not known:
    6 “I relieved your shoulder of the burden;
        your hands were freed from the basket.
    7 In distress you called, and I delivered you;
        I answered you in the secret place of thunder;
        I tested you at the waters of Meribah.
    8 Hear, O my people, while I admonish you!
        O Israel, if you would but listen to me!
    9 There shall be no strange god among you;
        you shall not bow down to a foreign god.
    10 I am the Lord your God,
        who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.
        Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
    11 “But my people did not listen to my voice;
        Israel would not submit to me.
    12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts,
        to follow their own counsels.
    13 Oh, that my people would listen to me,
        that Israel would walk in my ways!
    14 I would soon subdue their enemies
        and turn my hand against their foes.
    15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe toward him,
        and their fate would last forever.
    16 But he would feed you with the finest of the wheat,
        and with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

    Wisdom: Nothing You Desire Compares With Her

    Wisdom: Nothing You Desire Compares With Her

    Psalm 37

    1 Fret not yourself because of evildoers;
        be not envious of wrongdoers!
    2 For they will soon fade like the grass
        and wither like the green herb.
    3 Trust in the Lord, and do good;
        dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness.
    4 Delight yourself in the Lord,
        and he will give you the desires of your heart.
    5 Commit your way to the Lord;
        trust in him, and he will act.
    6 He will bring forth your righteousness as the light,
        and your justice as the noonday.
    7 Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;
        fret not yourself over the one who prospers in his way,
        over the man who carries out evil devices!
    8 Refrain from anger, and forsake wrath!
        Fret not yourself; it tends only to evil.
    9 For the evildoers shall be cut off,
        but those who wait for the Lord shall inherit the land.
    10 In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;
        though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.
    11 But the meek shall inherit the land
        and delight themselves in abundant peace.

    16 Better is the little that the righteous has
        than the abundance of many wicked.

    23 The steps of a man are established by the Lord,
        when he delights in his way;
    24 though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong,
        for the Lord upholds his hand.
    25 I have been young, and now am old,
        yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken
        or his children begging for bread.

    34 Wait for the Lord and keep his way,
        and he will exalt you to inherit the land;
        you will look on when the wicked are cut off.
    35 I have seen a wicked, ruthless man,
        spreading himself like a green laurel tree.
    36 But he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
        though I sought him, he could not be found.
    37 Mark the blameless and behold the upright,
        for there is a future for the man of peace.

    The Law of the Lord and the Lord of the Law

    The Law of the Lord and the Lord of the Law

    Psalm 119

    1 Blessed are those whose way is blameless,
        who walk in the law of the Lord!
    10 With my whole heart I seek you;
        let me not wander from your commandments!
    11 I have stored up your word in my heart,
        that I might not sin against you.
    18 Open my eyes, that I may behold
        wondrous things out of your law.
    20 My soul is consumed with longing
        for your rules at all times.
    24 Your testimonies are my delight;
        they are my counselors.
    37 Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things;
        and give me life in your ways.
    44 I will keep your law continually,
        forever and ever,
    45 and I shall walk in a wide place,
        for I have sought your precepts.
    48 I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love,
        and I will meditate on your statutes.
    50 This is my comfort in my affliction,
        that your promise gives me life.
    67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
        but now I keep your word.
    68 You are good and do good;
        teach me your statutes.
    92 If your law had not been my delight,
        I would have perished in my affliction.
    97 Oh how I love your law!
        It is my meditation all the day.
    105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
        and a light to my path.
    130 The unfolding of your words gives light;
        it imparts understanding to the simple.
    131 I open my mouth and pant,
        because I long for your commandments.
    140 Your promise is well tried,
        and your servant loves it.
    176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant,
        for I do not forget your commandments.

    The Call to Courage

    The Call to Courage

    Psalm 27
    Of David.
    1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
    of whom shall I be afraid?
    2 When evildoers assail me
    to eat up my flesh,
    my adversaries and foes,
    it is they who stumble and fall.
    3 Though an army encamp against me,
    my heart shall not fear;
    though war arise against me,
    yet I will be confident.
    4 One thing have I asked of the Lord,
    that will I seek after:
    that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life,
    to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord
    and to inquire in his temple.
    5 For he will hide me in his shelter
    in the day of trouble;
    he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
    he will lift me high upon a rock.
    6 And now my head shall be lifted up
    above my enemies all around me,
    and I will offer in his tent
    sacrifices with shouts of joy;
    I will sing and make melody to the Lord.
    7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
    be gracious to me and answer me!
    8 You have said, “Seek my face.”
    My heart says to you,
    “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”
    9 Hide not your face from me.
    Turn not your servant away in anger,
    O you who have been my help.
    Cast me not off; forsake me not,
    O God of my salvation!
    10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
    but the Lord will take me in.
    11 Teach me your way, O Lord,
    and lead me on a level path
    because of my enemies.
    12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
    for false witnesses have risen against me,
    and they breathe out violence.
    13 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living!
    14 Wait for the Lord;
    be strong, and let your heart take courage;
    wait for the Lord!
