Tehillim/Psalms 9.12-13, 17, 19

Photograph by Mica Engelhardt

Sing a hymn to the L-rd, who reins in Zion;

declare His deeds among the people.

For He does not ignore the cry of the afflicted;

He who requites bloodshed is mindful of them.

. . . The L-rd has made Himself known;

He works judgment;

the wicked man is snared by his own devices.

. . . Not always shall the needy be ignored,

nor the hope of the afflicted forever lost.

Tehillim/Psalms 9.12-13, 17, 19

*For the children who were and are sexually assaulted and ignored at Penn State and everywhere.


Tehillim/Psalms 42.12

Why so downcast, my soul,

why disquieted within me?

Have hope in G-d;

I will yet praise Him,

my ever-present help, my G-d.

Tehillim/Psalms 42.12


Hosea 14.6

 

I will be to Israel like dew;

He shall blossom like the lily,

He shall strike root like a Lebanon tree. . .

Hosea 14.6


Tehillim/Psalms 9.19

 

Not always shall the needy be ignored,

nor the hope of the afflicted forever lost.

Tehillim/Psalms 9.19


Zephaniah 3.17-18a

 

Your G-d the Lord is in your midst,

A Warrior who brings triumph.

He will rejoice over you and be glad,

He will shout over you with jubilation.

He will soothe with His love

Those long disconsolate.

Zephaniah 3.17-18a
