Trust in the Lord and do good,
abide in the land and remain loyal.
Seek the favor of the Lord,
and He will grant you the desires of your heart.
Leave all to the Lord;
trust in Him; He will do it.
He will cause your vindication to shine forth like the light,
the justice of your case like the noonday sun.
Be patient and wait for the Lord. . .
Let not humans have power;
let the nations be judged in Your presence.
Strike fear into them, O Lord;
let the nations know they are only human. Selah.
Ascribe to the Lord
Glory and Strength!
I Chronicles 16.28b
Our help is the Name of the Lord,
Maker of the heaven and earth.
It is good to praise the Lord,
To sing hymns to Your Name, O Most High,
To proclaim Your steadfast love at daybreak,
Your faithfulness each night.
The heavens are telling the glory of G-d;
and the firmament proclaims His handiwork . . .
G-d is our refuge and stronghold,
a help in trouble,
