Beginning Monday, July 24, His Time’s Meditatio will be renamed to “Oratio.” The content will be the same, but the music and name will be fresh and new!

In today’s Meditatio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on:

1. Psalm 92:8-15

Psalm 92    but you, O Lord, are on high forever.
For behold, your enemies, O Lord,
    for behold, your enemies shall perish;
    all evildoers shall be scattered.

10 But you have exalted my horn like that of the wild ox;
    you have poured over me[a] fresh oil.
11 My eyes have seen the downfall of my enemies;
    my ears have heard the doom of my evil assailants.

12 The righteous flourish like the palm tree
    and grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
13 They are planted in the house of the Lord;
    they flourish in the courts of our God.
14 They still bear fruit in old age;
    they are ever full of sap and green,
15 to declare that the Lord is upright;
    he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 92:10 Compare Syriac; the meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain

2. Proverbs 14:16

16 One who is wise is cautious[a] and turns away from evil,
    but a fool is reckless and careless.
