A Prayer for Mercy

1 Remember, O LORD, what has befallen us;

Look, and see our reproach!

2 Our inheritance has been turned over to strangers,

Our houses to aliens.

3 We have become orphans without a father,

Our mothers are like widows.

4 We have to pay for our drinking water,

Our wood comes to us at a price.

5 Our pursuers are at our necks;

We are worn out, there is no rest for us.

6 We have submitted to Egypt and Assyria to get enough bread.

7 Our fathers sinned, and are no more;

It is we who have borne their iniquities.

8 Slaves rule over us;

There is no one to deliver us from their hand.

9 We get our bread at the risk of our lives

Because of the sword in the wilderness.

10 Our skin has become as hot as an oven,

Because of the burning heat of famine.

11 They ravished the women in Zion,

The virgins in the cities of Judah.

12 Princes were hung by their hands;

Elders F86 were not respected.

13 Young men worked F87 at the grinding mill,

And youths stumbled under loads of wood.

14 Elders are gone from the gate,

Young men from their music.

15 The joy of our hearts has ceased;

Our dancing has been turned into mourning.

16 The crown has fallen from our head;

Woe to us, for we have sinned!

17 Because of this our heart is faint,

Because of these things our eyes are dim;

18 Because of Mount Zion which lies desolate,

Foxes prowl in it.

19 You, O LORD, rule forever;

Your throne is from generation to generation.

20 Why do You forget us forever?

Why do You forsake us so long?

21 Restore us to You, O LORD, that we may be restored;

Renew our days as of old,

22 Unless You have utterly rejected us

And are exceedingly angry with us.


 
 Book of Psalm 
 147:1-20 - Click for Chapter Audio

Praise for Jerusalem's Restoration and Prosperity.

1 Praise the LORD!

For it is good to sing praises to our God;

For it is pleasant and praise is becoming.

2 The LORD builds up Jerusalem;

He gathers the outcasts of Israel.

3 He heals the brokenhearted

And binds up their wounds.

4 He counts the number of the stars;

He gives F1538 names to all of them.

5 Great is our Lord and abundant in strength;

His understanding is infinite.

6 The LORD supports F1540 the afflicted;

He brings down the wicked to the ground.

7 Sing to the LORD with thanksgiving;

Sing praises to our God on the lyre,

8 Who covers the heavens with clouds,

Who provides rain for the earth,

Who makes grass to grow on the mountains.

9 He gives to the beast its food,

And to the young ravens which cry.

10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse;

He does not take pleasure in the legs of a man.

11 The LORD favors those who fear Him,

Those who wait for His lovingkindness.

12 Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem!

Praise your God, O Zion!

13 For He has strengthened the bars of your gates;

He has blessed your sons within you.

14 He makes peace in your borders;

He satisfies you with the finest of the wheat.

15 He sends forth His command to the earth;

His word runs very swiftly.

16 He gives snow like wool;

He scatters the frost like ashes.

17 He casts forth His ice as fragments;

Who can stand before His cold?

18 He sends forth His word and melts them;

He causes His wind to blow and the waters to flow.

19 He declares His words to Jacob,

His statutes and His ordinances to Israel.

20 He has not dealt thus with any nation;

And as for His ordinances, they have not known them.

Praise the LORD!


 
 Book of Galatians 
 5:1-15 - Click for Chapter Audio

1 It F93 was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.

2 Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. 3 And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the whole Law. 4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace. 5 For we through the Spirit, by faith, are waiting for the hope of righteousness. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but faith working through love.

7 You were running well; who hindered you from obeying the truth? 8 This persuasion did not come from Him who calls you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough. 10 I have confidence in you in the Lord that you will adopt no other view; but the one who is disturbing you will bear his judgment, whoever he is. 11 But I, brethren, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been abolished. 12 I wish that those who are troubling you would even mutilate F98 themselves.

13 For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF." 15 But if you bite and devour one another, take care that you are not consumed by one another.
