Praying the Psalms


Tehillim/Psalms 125.1-2

Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion

that cannot be moved, enduring forever.

Jerusalem, hills enfold it,

and the Lord enfolds His people now and forever.

Tehillim/Psalms 125.1-2

For as the earth brings forth her growth

And a garden makes the seed shoot up,

So the Lord God will make

Victory and renown shoot up

In the presence of all the nations.

Hear my voice, O Lord, at daybreak;

at daybreak I plead before You and wait.

and birds that fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky.”

Tehillim/Psalms 8.4-5

When I behold Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,

the moon and stars that You set in place,

what are humans that You have been mindful of them,

mortals that you have taken note of them?

Tehillim/Psalms 8.4-5


For you shall observe this as an institution for all time, for you and your descendents. And when you enter the land that the Lord will give you, as He has promised, you shall observe this rite. And when your children ask you, “What do you mean by this rite?” you shall say “It is the Passover sacrifice to the Lord, because He passed over the houses of the Israelites in Egypt when He smote the Egyptians, but saved our houses.” . . . . And all the Israelites did so; as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so they did. That very day the Lord freed the Israelites from the land of Egypt, troop by troop.

~Exodus 12.24-27, 50-51
