In today’s Meditatio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on:
1. Psalm 22:19-26
19 But you, O Lord, do not be far off!
O you my help, come quickly to my aid!
20 Deliver my soul from the sword,
my precious life from the power of the dog!
21 Save me from the mouth of the lion!
You have rescued[a] me from the horns of the wild oxen!
22 I will tell of your name to my brothers;
in the midst of the congregation I will praise you:
23 You who fear the Lord, praise him!
All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him,
and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!
24 For he has not despised or abhorred
the affliction of the afflicted,
and he has not hidden his face from him,
but has heard, when he cried to him.
25 From you comes my praise in the great congregation;
my vows I will perform before those who fear him.
26 The afflicted[b] shall eat and be satisfied;
those who seek him shall praise the Lord!
May your hearts live forever!
- Psalm 22:21 Hebrew answered
- Psalm 22:26 Or The meek
2. Proverbs 13:22
22 A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,
but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous.
