In today’s Meditatio, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on the fall of heathen power, the strength of God’s Kingdom, and the roles of parents and children in the following:
1. Psalm 125
The Lord Surrounds His People
A Song of Ascents.
125 Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion,
which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
so the Lord surrounds his people,
from this time forth and forevermore.
3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
on the land allotted to the righteous,
lest the righteous stretch out
their hands to do wrong.
4 Do good, O Lord, to those who are good,
and to those who are upright in their hearts!
5 But those who turn aside to their crooked ways
the Lord will lead away with evildoers!
Peace be upon Israel!
2. Proverbs 14:11
11 The house of the wicked will be destroyed,
but the tent of the upright will flourish.
3. The Table of Duties in the Small Catechism
