Let the Lord be judge…

For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures and the encouragement they provide we might have hope. Romans

Comments, thoughts and reflections welcome.

Sitting outside under the spreading oak

listening to the wind as it moves through

the uppermost limbs of oak and stately pine

hearing the call of early morning birds

and the bray of the donkey down the road

Watching the dark night sky give way to

early morning light

May we be the light of the morning to

the dark night of humanity

May we share his light and love as the

rays of the sun share light and heat

May we live his words bearing fruit

that brings life to the dying world.

Psalm 7

O LORD my God, in You I put my trust;

​​Save me from all those who persecute me;

​​And deliver me,

​​Lest they tear me like a lion,

​​Rending me in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

​​O LORD my God, if I have done this:

​​If there is iniquity in my hands,

If I have repaid evil to him who was at peace with me,

​​Or have plundered my enemy without cause, ​​Let the enemy pursue me and overtake me;

​​Yes, let him trample my life to the earth,

​​And lay my honor in the dust. Selah

Arise, O LORD, in Your anger;

​​Lift Yourself up because of the rage of my enemies;

​​Rise up for me to the judgment You have commanded!

 ​​So the congregation of the peoples shall surround You;

​​For their sakes, therefore, return on high.

The LORD shall judge the peoples;

​​Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness,

​​And according to my integrity within me.

Oh, let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end,

​​But establish the just;

​​For the righteous God tests the hearts and minds.

My defense is of God,

​​Who saves the upright in heart.

 ​​God is a just judge,

​​And God is angry with the wicked every day.

 ​​If he does not turn back,

​​He will sharpen His sword;

​​He bends His bow and makes it ready.

He also prepares for Himself instruments of death;

​​He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.

 ​​Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity;

​​Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood.

​​He made a pit and dug it out,

​​And has fallen into the ditch which he made.

​​His trouble shall return upon his own head,

​​And his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.

​​I will praise the LORD according to His righteousness,

​​And will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High.

Pasted from <http://www.blueletterbible.org/tools/printerFriendly.cfm?b=Psa&c=7&t=nkjvp>

Why take refuge in the Lord?  Because he is mightier!  What becomes of those who practice evil?  They are caught in their own traps.  The Lord God judges, not we the people.  And we praise him for that.
