In today’s Meditatio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on:
1. Psalm 35:1-6, 9-10
Great Is the Lord
35 Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me;
fight against those who fight against me!
2 Take hold of shield and buckler
and rise for my help!
3 Draw the spear and javelin[a]
against my pursuers!
Say to my soul,
“I am your salvation!”
4 Let them be put to shame and dishonor
who seek after my life!
Let them be turned back and disappointed
who devise evil against me!
5 Let them be like chaff before the wind,
with the angel of the Lord driving them away!
6 Let their way be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the Lord pursuing them!
9 Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord,
exulting in his salvation.
10 All my bones shall say,
“O Lord, who is like you,
delivering the poor
from him who is too strong for him,
the poor and needy from him who robs him?”
- Psalm 35:3 Or and close the way
2. Proverbs 12:13
13 An evil man is ensnared by the transgression of his lips,[a]
but the righteous escapes from trouble.
- Proverbs 12:13 Or In the transgression of the lips, there is an evil snare
3. Sacrament of the Altar in the Large Catechism
