Oct 7: Psalm 99; Ezekiel 29-31

Songs for today: 
Lord Lead Me On
Come, Now is the Time to Worship

The Lord reigns, let the peoples tremble;
He is enthroned above the cherubim, let the earth shake!
The Lord is great in Zion,
And He is exalted above all the peoples.
Let them praise Your great and awesome name;
Holy is He.
•••
Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His footstool;
Holy is He.
•••
Moses and Aaron were among His priests,
And Samuel was among those who called on His name;
They called upon the Lord and He answered them.
•••
O Lord our God, You answered them;
You were a forgiving God to them,
And yet an avenger of their evil deeds.
•••
Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His holy hill,
For holy is the Lord our God.
from Psalm 99

the word of the Lord came to me saying, “Son of man, set your face against Pharaoh king of Egypt and prophesy against him and against all Egypt. Speak and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God,
“Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt …
from Ezekiel 29

The word of the Lord came again to me saying, “Son of man, prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God,
“Wail, ‘Alas for the day!’
“For the day is near,
Even the day of the Lord is near;
It will be a day of clouds,
A time of doom for the nations.
•••
Ethiopia, Put, Lud, all Arabia, Libya and the people of the land that is in league will fall with them by the sword.”
•••
And they will know that I am the Lord,
When I set a fire in Egypt
And all her helpers are broken.
•••
Then they will know that I am the Lord, when I put My sword into the hand of the king of Babylon and he stretches it out against the land of Egypt. When I scatter the Egyptians among the nations and disperse them among the lands, then they will know that I am the Lord.’”
from Ezekiel 30

thus says the Lord God, “Because it is high in stature and has set its top among the clouds, and its heart is haughty in its loftiness, therefore I will give it into the hand of a despot of the nations; he will thoroughly deal with it. According to its wickedness I have driven it away.
•••
To which among the trees of Eden are you thus equal in glory and greatness? Yet you will be brought down with the trees of Eden to the earth beneath; you will lie in the midst of the uncircumcised, with those who were slain by the sword. So is Pharaoh and all his hordes!”’ declares the Lord God.”
from Ezekiel 31
