Romans 11

I ask then: Did God reject his people? By no means! I am an Israelite myself, a descendant of Abraham, from the tribe of Benjamin. 2 God did not reject his people, whom he foreknew. Don’t you know what Scripture says in the passage about Elijah—how he appealed to God against Israel: 3 “Lord, they … Continue reading

Psalm 17

A prayer of David. 1 Hear me, Lord, my plea is just;     listen to my cry. Hear my prayer—     it does not rise from deceitful lips. 2 Let my vindication come from you;     may your eyes see what is right. 3 Though you probe my heart,     though you examine me at night and test me, you will find that I have … Continue reading

Psalm 14

1 The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”     They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds,     there is none who does good. 2 The Lord looks down from heaven on the children of man,     to see if there are any who understand,     who seek after God. 3 They have all turned aside; together they have become corrupt;     there is none who does … Continue reading

Psalm 8

1 Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory in the heavens. 2 Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger. 3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which … Continue reading

Psalm 7

A shiggaion of David, which he sang to the Lord concerning Cush, a Benjamite. 1 Lord my God, I take refuge in you;     save and deliver me from all who pursue me, 2 or they will tear me apart like a lion     and rip me to pieces with no one to rescue me. 3 Lord my God, if I have done this     and there is guilt on … Continue reading
