Praying the Psalms


Tehillim/Psalms 90.1b-2

Before the mountains came into being,

before You brought forth the earth and the world,

from eternity to eternity, You are God.

do not be vexed by the prospering man who carries out his scheme.

Give up anger, abandon fury,

do not be vexed;

it can only do harm.

Hear my voice, O Lord, at daybreak;

at daybreak I plead before You, and wait . . . .

O Lord, lead me along Your righteous path . . .

make Your way straight before me.

The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Say to the Israelite people: On the fifteenth day of this seventh month there shall be the Feast of Booths (Sukkot) to the Lord, to last seven days. The first day shall be a sacred occasion: you shall not work at your occupations; seven days you shall bring offerings by fire to the Lord. On the eighth day you shall observe a sacred occasion and bring an offering by fire to the Lord; it is a solemn gathering: you shall not work at your occupation. (Leviticus/Vayikra 23.33-36)

He renews my life;

He guides me in right paths as befits His name.

Sing to the Lord a song of praise,

chant a hymn with lyre to our G-d,

Who covers the heavens with clouds,

provides rain for the earth,

makes mountains put forth grass . . .

for I look to You.

O God, redeem Israel

from all its distress.
