Oct 26: Psalm 118; Hosea 8-10

Songs for today: 
Shout to the Lord
Soon and Very Soon

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
•••
The Lord is for me; I will not fear;
What can man do to me?
•••
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
Than to trust in man.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord
Than to trust in princes.
•••
The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation.
The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;
•••
I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me,
And You have become my salvation.
•••
This is the day which the Lord has made;
Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
•••
But as for us, we will bless the Lord
From this time forth and forever.
Praise the Lord!
from Psalm 118

Put the trumpet to your lips!
Like an eagle the enemy comes against the house of the Lord,
Because they have transgressed My covenant
And rebelled against My law.
from Hosea

The days of punishment have come,
The days of retribution have come;
Let Israel know this!
The prophet is a fool,
The inspired man is demented,
Because of the grossness of your iniquity,
And because your hostility is so great.
from Hosea

Their heart is faithless;
Now they must bear their guilt.
The Lord will break down their altars
And destroy their sacred pillars.
Surely now they will say, “We have no king,
For we do not revere the Lord.
As for the king, what can he do for us?”
They speak mere words,
With worthless oaths they make covenants;
And judgment sprouts like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.
•••
Sow with a view to righteousness,
Reap in accordance with kindness;
Break up your fallow ground,
For it is time to seek the Lord
Until He comes to rain righteousness on you.
from Hosea
