Psalm 68In today’s Oratio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on:

1. Psalm 68:4-10

Sing to God, sing praises to his name;
    lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;
his name is the Lord;
    exult before him!
Father of the fatherless and protector of widows
    is God in his holy habitation.
God settles the solitary in a home;
    he leads out the prisoners to prosperity,
    but the rebellious dwell in a parched land.

O God, when you went out before your people,
    when you marched through the wilderness, Selah
the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain,
    before God, the One of Sinai,
    before God,[a] the God of Israel.
Rain in abundance, O God, you shed abroad;
    you restored your inheritance as it languished;
10 your flock[b] found a dwelling in it;
    in your goodness, O God, you provided for the needy.

Footnotes:

  1. Psalm 68:8 Or before God, even Sinai before God
  2. Psalm 68:10 Or your congregation

2. Proverbs 14:26

26 In the fear of the Lord one has strong confidence,
    and his children will have a refuge.
