Reading along with us through Psalm 61-70? Here’s today’s reading:

Psalm 65 (ESV)

Praise is due to you, O God, in Zion,
    and to you shall vows be performed.
O you who hear prayer,
    to you shall all flesh come.
When iniquities prevail against me,
    you atone for our transgressions.
Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,
    to dwell in your courts!
We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
    the holiness of your temple!.

  1. Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,
    to dwell in your courts!
    We shall be satisfied with the goodness of your house,
    the holiness of your temple!
    5 By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness,
    O God of our salvation,❤️

  2. 5 By awesome deeds you answer us with righteousness,
    O God of our salvation,
    the hope of all the ends of the earth
    and of the farthest seas;
    6 the one who by his strength established the mountains,
    being girded with might;
    7 who stills the roaring of the seas,
    the roaring of their waves,
    the tumult of the peoples,
    8 so that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs.

  3. In the same way that praise awaits God in Zion, it should also be awaiting God in our hearts. As David here considers the blessing and provision that are the Jews by virtue of being the children of God, how much more blessed and provided for our we as believers in Jesus. He praises God for forgiveness of sins accomplished through sacrifices and for God’s presence in the temple, we have forgiveness based in Christ and we are the temple of the Spirit. We certainly recognize God’s power in creation and even the bounty we might have in our lives and in our land, but even if we do not, we still have reason to praise and exalt our God and King. May we all learn to practice the worship of God!
