Psalm 50 (CSB)

Psalm 50


A psalm of Asaph. 

The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks; 

he summons the earth 

from the rising of the sun to its setting. 

From Zion, the perfection of beauty, 

God appears in radiance.,

Our God is coming; he will not be silent! 

Devouring fire precedes him, 

and a storm rages around him. 

On high, he summons heaven and earth 

in order to judge his people: 

“Gather my faithful ones to me, 

those who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.” 

The heavens proclaim his righteousness, 

for God is the Judge. 


“Listen, my people, and I will speak; 

I will testify against you, Israel. 

I am God, your God. 

I do not rebuke you for your sacrifices 

or for your burnt offerings, 

which are continually before me. 

I will not take a bull from your household 

or male goats from your pens, 

10 for every animal of the forest is mine, 

the cattle on a thousand hills. 

11 I know every bird of the mountains, 

and the creatures of the field are mine. 

12 If I were hungry, I would not tell you, 

for the world and everything in it is mine. 

13 Do I eat the flesh of bulls 

or drink the blood of goats? 

14 Sacrifice a thank offering to God, 

and pay your vows to the Most High. 

15 Call on me in a day of trouble; 

I will rescue you, and you will honor me.” 

16 But God says to the wicked: 

“What right do you have to recite my statutes 

and to take my covenant on your lips? 

17 You hate instruction 

and fling my words behind you. 

18 When you see a thief, 

you make friends with him, 

and you associate with adulterers. 

19 You unleash your mouth for evil 

and harness your tongue for deceit. 

20 You sit, maligning your brother, 

slandering your mother’s son. 

21 You have done these things, and I kept silent; 

you thought I was just like you. 

But I will rebuke you 

and lay out the case before you.,

22 “Understand this, you who forget God, 

or I will tear you apart, 

and there will be no one to rescue you. 

23 Whoever sacrifices a thank offering honors me, 

and whoever orders his conduct, 

I will show him the salvation of God.”

Proverbs 10:1–4 (CSB)


10 Solomon’s proverbs: 

A wise son brings joy to his father, 

but a foolish son, heartache to his mother. 

Ill-gotten gains do not profit anyone, 

but righteousness rescues from death. 

The Lord will not let the righteous go hungry, 

but he denies the wicked what they crave. 

Idle hands make one poor, 

but diligent hands bring riches.

Luke 1:39–66 (CSB)


39 In those days Mary set out and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judah 40 where she entered Zechariah’s house and greeted Elizabeth. 41 When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the baby leaped inside her, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. 42 Then she exclaimed with a loud cry: “Blessed are you among women, and your child will be blessed! 43 How could this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For you see, when the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby leaped for joy inside me. 45 Blessed is she who has believed that the Lord would fulfill what he has spoken to her!” 


46 And Mary said: 

My soul praises the greatness of the Lord, 

47 and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 

48 because he has looked with favor 

on the humble condition of his servant. 

Surely, from now on all generations 

will call me blessed, 

49 because the Mighty One 

has done great things for me, 

and his name is holy. 

50 His mercy is from generation to generation 

on those who fear him. 

51 He has done a mighty deed with his arm; 

he has scattered the proud 

because of the thoughts of their hearts; 

52 he has toppled the mighty from their thrones 

and exalted the lowly. 

53 He has satisfied the hungry with good things 

and sent the rich away empty. 

54 He has helped his servant Israel, 

remembering his mercy 

55 to Abraham and his descendants forever, 

just as he spoke to our ancestors. 

56 And Mary stayed with her about three months; then she returned to her home. 


57 Now the time had come for Elizabeth to give birth, and she had a son. 58 Then her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her his great mercy, and they rejoiced with her. 

59 When they came to circumcise the child on the eighth day, they were going to name him Zechariah, after his father. 60 But his mother responded, “No. He will be called John.” 

61 Then they said to her, “None of your relatives has that name.” 62 So they motioned to his father to find out what he wanted him to be called. 63 He asked for a writing tablet and wrote: “His name is John.” And they were all amazed. 64 Immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue set free, and he began to speak, praising God. 65 Fear came on all those who lived around them, and all these things were being talked about throughout the hill country of Judea. 66 All who heard about him took it to heart, saying, “What then will this child become?” For, indeed, the Lord’s hand was with him.

The LORD God Created (January 5, 2021)

When God began to create the heavens and the earth—the earth was without shape or form, it was dark over the deep sea, and God’s wind swept over the waters—God said, “Let there be light.” And so light appeared. God saw how good the light was. God separated the light from the darkness. God named the light Day and the darkness Night.

His Blood Cries Out (January 6, 2020)

What did you do? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground. You are now cursed from the ground that opened its mouth to take your brother’s blood from your hand. When you farm the fertile land, it will no longer grow anything for you, and you will become a roving nomad on the earth. I get no pleasure from the blood. Though you offer many prayers, I will not listen, for your hands are covered with the blood of innocent victims.
