This morning my attention has been drawn to every phrase of the 65th Psalm. Here are a few of those phrases:
Verse 3: “When we were overwhelmed by sins you atoned for our transgressions.”
Verse 8: “Where morning dawns and evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.”
Verses 9-13: “You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it. You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops. You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance. The grasslands of the desert overflow; the hills are clothed with gladness. The meadows are covered with flocks and the valleys are mantled with grain; they shout for joy and sing.”
