Lessons Bread of Life 23 May 2020
1God shall arise, his enemies shall be | scattered;*
and those who hate him shall flee be- | fore him!
2As smoke is driven away, so you shall drive | them away;*
as wax melts before fire,
so the wicked shall perish be- | fore God!
3But the righteous shall be glad;
they shall exult be- | fore God;*
they shall be jubilant | with joy!
4Sing to God, sing praises | to his name;*
lift up a song to him who rides through the deserts;
his name is the LORD;
exult be- | fore him!
5Father of the fatherless and protector of | widows*
is God in his holy habi- | tation.
6God settles the solitary in a home;
he leads out the prisoners to pros- | perity,*
but the rebellious dwell in a | parched land.
7O God, when you went out before your | people,*
when you marched through the | wilderness,
8the earth quaked, the heavens poured down rain,
before God, the One of | Sinai,*
before God, the God of | Israel.
9Rain in abundance, O God, you | shed abroad;*
you restored your inheritance as it | languished;
10your flock found a dwell- | ing in it;*
in your goodness, O God, you provided for the | needy.
