The Psalms are the ancient prayers of the Jewish people, here paraphrased into contemporary language.
This Sunday's Psalm
Ps 71:1-2, 7-8,10-13
Give judgement to the king, O God,
and your justice to his son,
so he can give righteousness to your people,
and judge justly for the poor.
Righteousness will flourish in his days,
and an abundance of peace till the moon exists no more.
He will reign from sea to sea,
across the widest expanse of the lands.
For he will save the needy when they cry out,
the poor also and those without help.
He will be a refuge for the poor and needy.
He will give life to those in need.
His name shall endure forever,
till the sun exists no more.
All people shall be blessed in him.
All nations acclaim his name.
