Nov 1: Psalm 123; Amos 1-2

Blessed be the Name

Blessed Be Your Name

Blessed Be The Name Of The Lord

Blessed Be The Name Of The Lord

From Psalm 123

Unto You I lift up my eyes,
O You who dwell in the heavens.
Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters,
As the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress,
So our eyes look to the LORD our God,
Until He has mercy on us.
Have mercy on us, O LORD, have mercy on us!
For we are exceedingly filled with contempt.
Our soul is exceedingly filled
With the scorn of those who are at ease,
With the contempt of the proud.

From Amos 1

The words of Amos, who was among the sheepbreeders of Tekoa, which he saw concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam the son of Joash, king of Israel, two years before the earthquake.
And he said:
“The LORD roars from Zion,
And utters His voice from Jerusalem;
The pastures of the shepherds mourn,
And the top of Carmel withers.”

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Damascus, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,..

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Gaza, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,..

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Tyre, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,..

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Edom, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,..

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of the people of Ammon, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,..

From Amos 2

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Moab, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,..

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Judah, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because they have despised the law of the LORD,
And have not kept His commandments.
Their lies lead them astray,
Lies which their fathers followed.
But I will send a fire upon Judah,
And it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.”

Thus says the LORD:
“For three transgressions of Israel, and for four,
I will not turn away its punishment,
Because they sell the righteous for silver,
And the poor for a pair of sandals.
They pant after the dust of the earth which is on the head of the poor,
And pervert the way of the humble.
A man and his father go in to the same girl,
To defile My holy name.
They lie down by every altar on clothes taken in pledge,
And drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.
