When I consider thy heavens

O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy […]

he listens to my cry for help

I am worn out with grief;     every night my bed is damp from my weeping;     my pillow is soaked with tears. I can hardly see;     my eyes are so swollen     from the weeping caused by my enemies. Keep away from me, you evil people! The Lord hears my weeping;     he listens to my cry […]

hath shined in our hearts

Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not; But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. But if our gospel be hid, […]

planted in the house of the Lord

The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing; To shew that the Lord is […]

you cannot interpret the signs

He answered them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times. An evil and adulterous generation seeks […]

I form light and create darkness

the thing that is hidden he brings out to light

Man puts his hand to the flinty rock     and overturns mountains by the roots. He cuts out channels in the rocks,     and his eye sees every precious thing. He dams up the streams so that they do not trickle,     and the thing that is hidden he brings out to light. (Job 28: 9-11) Birch Mtn., Wenatchee […]

Psalm 150

Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with […]

He giveth power to the faint

Have ye not known? have ye not heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth […]

In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun

The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In […]
