In today’s Meditatio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on:
1. Psalm 26:1-3, 8-12
I Will Bless the Lord
26 Vindicate me, O Lord,
for I have walked in my integrity,
and I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
2 Prove me, O Lord, and try me;
test my heart and my mind.[a]
3 For your steadfast love is before my eyes,
and I walk in your faithfulness.
8 O Lord, I love the habitation of your house
and the place where your glory dwells.
9 Do not sweep my soul away with sinners,
nor my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 in whose hands are evil devices,
and whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But as for me, I shall walk in my integrity;
redeem me, and be gracious to me.
12 My foot stands on level ground;
in the great assembly I will bless the Lord.
- Psalm 26:2 Hebrew test my kidneys and my heart
2. Proverbs 12:20
20 Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil,
but those who plan peace have joy.
