Aug 14: Psalm 45; Isaiah 5

Songs for today: 
When Morning Gilds the Skies
What a Meeting In the Air

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
•••
I will cause Your name to be remembered in all generations;
Therefore the peoples will give You thanks forever and ever.
from Psalm 45

the vineyard of the Lord of hosts is the house of Israel
And the men of Judah His delightful plant.
Thus He looked for justice, but behold, bloodshed;
For righteousness, but behold, a cry of distress.
•••
the Lord of hosts will be exalted in judgment,
And the holy God will show Himself holy in righteousness.
•••
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
And clever in their own sight!
Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine
And valiant men in mixing strong drink,
Who justify the wicked for a bribe,
And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!
from Isaiah 6
