Meditation Psalm 107b

Some became fools through their rebellious ways    and suffered affliction because of their iniquities.They loathed all food    and drew near the gates of death.Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,    and he saved them from their distress.He sent out his word and healed them;    he rescued them from the grave.Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love    and his […]

Meditation Psalm 107a

Book VPsalms 107 – 150 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;    his love endures for ever. Let the redeemed of the Lord tell their story –    those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,those he gathered from the lands,    from east and west, from north and south. Some wandered in desert wastelands,    finding no way to a city where […]

Meditation Psalm 106c

They did not destroy the peoples    as the Lord had commanded them,but they mingled with the nations    and adopted their customs.They worshipped their idols,    which became a snare to them.They sacrificed their sons    and their daughters to false gods.They shed innocent blood,    the blood of their sons and daughters,whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan,    and the land was desecrated by their […]

Meditation Psalm 106b

But they soon forgot what he had done    and did not wait for his plan to unfold.In the desert they gave in to their craving;    in the wilderness they put God to the test.So he gave them what they asked for,    but sent a wasting disease among them. In the camp they grew envious of Moses    and of Aaron, […]

Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;    his love endures for ever. Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord    or fully declare his praise?Blessed are those who act justly,    who always do what is right. Remember me, Lord, when you show favour to your people,    come to my aid when you save them,that I may enjoy […]

Meditation Psalm 105b

The Lord made his people very fruitful;    he made them too numerous for their foes,whose hearts he turned to hate his people,    to conspire against his servants.He sent Moses his servant,    and Aaron, whom he had chosen.They performed his signs among them,    his wonders in the land of Ham.He sent darkness and made the land dark –    for had they not rebelled against […]

Meditation Psalm 105a

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;    make known among the nations what he has done.Sing to him, sing praise to him;    tell of all his wonderful acts.Glory in his holy name;    let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.Look to the Lord and his strength;    seek his face always. Remember the wonders he has done,    his miracles, and the judgments he […]

Meditation Psalm 104

Praise the Lord, my soul. Lord my God, you are very great;    you are clothed with splendour and majesty. The Lord wraps himself in light as with a garment;    he stretches out the heavens like a tent    and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters.He makes the clouds his chariot    and rides on the wings of the wind.He makes winds […]

Of David. Praise the Lord, my soul;    all my inmost being, praise his holy name.Praise the Lord, my soul,    and forget not all his benefits –who forgives all your sins    and heals all your diseases,who redeems your life from the pit    and crowns you with love and compassion,who satisfies your desires with good things    so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
