Anyone have something to share?

Psalm 136

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
His love endures forever.

to him who alone does great wonders,
His love endures forever.
who by his understanding made the heavens,
His love endures forever.
who spread out the earth upon the waters,
His love endures forever.
who made the great lights—
His love endures forever.
the sun to govern the day,
His love endures forever.
the moon and stars to govern the night;
His love endures forever.

10 to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt
His love endures forever.
11 and brought Israel out from among them
His love endures forever.
12 with a mighty hand and outstretched arm;
His love endures forever.

13 to him who divided the Red Sea asunder
His love endures forever.
14 and brought Israel through the midst of it,
His love endures forever.
15 but swept Pharaoh and his army into the Red Sea;
His love endures forever.

16 to him who led his people through the wilderness;
His love endures forever.

17 to him who struck down great kings,
His love endures forever.
18 and killed mighty kings—
His love endures forever.
19 Sihon king of the Amorites
His love endures forever.
20 and Og king of Bashan—
His love endures forever.
21 and gave their land as an inheritance,
His love endures forever.
22 an inheritance to his servant Israel.
His love endures forever.

23 He remembered us in our low estate
His love endures forever.
24 and freed us from our enemies.
His love endures forever.
25 He gives food to every creature.
His love endures forever.

26 Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His love endures forever.

  1. Love this psalm. 🙂

    And they’re quite clear about one thing…… 🙂

    “His love endures forever.”

    This is on my list of questions when arriving in heaven. Who wrote it?

    christianity.com/bible/commentary.php?com=spur&b=19&c=136

    “We know not by whom this Psalm was written, but we do know that it was sung in Solomon’s temple (2Ch 7:3,6), and by the armies of Jehoshaphat when they sang themselves into victory in the wilderness of Tekoa. From the striking form of it we should infer that it was a popular hymn among the Lord’s ancient people. Most hymns with a solid, simple chorus become favourites with congregations, and this is sure to have been one of the best beloved. It contains nothing but praise. It is tuned to rapture, and can only be fully enjoyed by a devoutly grateful heart.”

  2. On Friday’s prayer thread I asked for prayer for Detroit on a tense evening, so I should probably update.

    So far, other than in the hours after the shooting Friday, there hasn’t been violence as far as I’ve heard. The daily marching and chanting and speeches that began after George Floyd’s death have been renewed in vigor.

    I think the dashcam and bodycam scenes that the police chief showed make pretty clear that the young man who died started it by pulling a gun from his pocket and firing at the officers at close range. They had done nothing to provoke him except to arrest his friend, who was not resisting the arrest at all. They shot him in self defense, and he died.

    Some members of his family are calling for the police chief to “stop lying.” I don’t know in what way they think he’s lying.

    In short, things seem to have settled back down to our “recent normal”, and I appreciate your prayers.
