In today’s Meditatio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on:
1. Psalm 88:3-9
3 For my soul is full of troubles,
and my life draws near to Sheol.
4 I am counted among those who go down to the pit;
I am a man who has no strength,
5 like one set loose among the dead,
like the slain that lie in the grave,
like those whom you remember no more,
for they are cut off from your hand.
6 You have put me in the depths of the pit,
in the regions dark and deep.
7 Your wrath lies heavy upon me,
and you overwhelm me with all your waves. Selah
8 You have caused my companions to shun me;
you have made me a horror[a] to them.
I am shut in so that I cannot escape;
9 my eye grows dim through sorrow.
Every day I call upon you, O Lord;
I spread out my hands to you.
- Psalm 88:8 Or an abomination
2. Proverbs 12:14
14 From the fruit of his mouth a man is satisfied with good,
and the work of a man’s hand comes back to him.
