Psalm 115 (NRSV)

1Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory,

for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness.
2Why should the nations say,
"Where is their God?"
3Our God is in the heavens;
he does whatever he pleases.
4Their idols are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
5They have mouths, but do not speak;
eyes, but do not see.
6They have ears, but do not hear;
noses, but do not smell.
7They have hands, but do not feel;
feet, but do not walk;
they make no sound in their throats.
8Those who make them are like them;
so are all who trust in them.
9O Israel, trust in the LORD!
He is their help and their shield.
10O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD!
He is their help and their shield.
11You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD!
He is their help and their shield.
12The LORD has been mindful of us; he will bless us;
he will bless the house of Israel;
he will bless the house of Aaron;
13he will bless those who fear the LORD,
both small and great.
14May the LORD give you increase,
both you and your children.
15May you be blessed by the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.
16The heavens are the LORD's heavens,
but the earth he has given to human beings.
17The dead do not praise the LORD,
nor do any that go down into silence.
18But we will bless the LORD
from this time on and forevermore.
Praise the LORD!​

 

 

Both we and our ancestors have sinned; we have committed iniquity, have done wickedly. - Daily Bible Reading: Tuesday, January 11, 2022

Psalm 106:1-12 (NRSV)

1Praise the LORD!

O give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever.
2Who can utter the mighty doings of the LORD,
or declare all his praise?
3Happy are those who observe justice,
who do righteousness at all times.
4Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people;
help me when you deliver them;
5that I may see the prosperity of your chosen ones,
that I may rejoice in the gladness of your nation,
that I may glory in your heritage.
6Both we and our ancestors have sinned;
we have committed iniquity, have done wickedly.
7Our ancestors, when they were in Egypt,
did not consider your wonderful works;
they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love,
but rebelled against the Most High at the Red Sea.
8Yet he saved them for his name's sake,
so that he might make known his mighty power.
9He rebuked the Red Sea, and it became dry;
he led them through the deep as through a desert.
10So he saved them from the hand of the foe,
and delivered them from the hand of the enemy.
11The waters covered their adversaries;
not one of them was left.
12Then they believed his words;
they sang his praise.
