The Psalms are the ancient prayers of the Jewish people, here paraphrased into contemporary language.
This Sunday's Psalm
Ps 84: 9-14
I will listen to what God says
for God speaks of wellbeing for people,
for those who are kind
and who turn away from apathy and foolishness.
Yes, God’s salvation draws near to those living in awe.
In them, God’s glory lives in our midst.
Kindness and truth embrace,
Justice and peace kiss,
Truth springs up from the earth,
and justice gazes down from heaven.
Yes, God will fill our land with goodness
and our earth will yield abundantly.
Justice goes before God’s face,
and we shall walk within his steps.
