Psalm 96

Sing to the Lord a new song;
    sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, praise his name;
    proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
    his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
    he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the nations are idols,
    but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
    strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,
    ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
    bring an offering and come into his courts.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness;
    tremble before him, all the earth.
10 Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.”
    The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;
    he will judge the peoples with equity.

11 Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;
    let the sea resound, and all that is in it.
12 Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;
    let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
13 Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes,
    he comes to judge the earth.
   He will judge the world in righteousness
    and the peoples in his faithfulness.

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord;
    let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before him with thanksgiving
    and extol him with music and song.

For the Lord is the great God,
    the great King above all gods.
In his hand are the depths of the earth,
    and the mountain peaks belong to him.
The sea is his, for he made it,
    and his hands formed the dry land.

Come, let us bow down in worship,
    let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God
    and we are the people of his pasture,
    the flock under his care.

   Today, if only you would hear his voice,
“Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,
    as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,
where your ancestors tested me;
    they tried me, though they had seen what I did.
10 For forty years I was angry with that generation;
    I said, ‘They are a people whose hearts go astray,
    and they have not known my ways.’
11 So I declared on oath in my anger,
    ‘They shall never enter my rest.’”

Peter’s Pack of Pickled Pigskin Picks 2018 Week 11

Hello fellow dopesters! No, I’m not saying we’re all hooked on a drug or stupid. No, according to, a dopester is “a person who undertakes to predict the outcome of elections, sports events, or other contests that hold the public interest.” I got that in my daily email from that site. I’ve learned a few useful new words that way. I’ve also learned that it is possible to guess the results of ten college football games and be correct on all ten, as Chas did last week. He picked the tie breaker this week, which is his prize for winning. He actually suggested two different games, so both are here, but only one is the TB.

Pick your ten choices from the games below by NOON Eastern Standard Time (glad EDT is over) Saturday.

AJ’s note: Sorry for the late posting. Peter’s email went to the junk folder for some reason, and I didn’t notice it.

 1. #8 Ohio State @ Michigan State

 2. TCU @ #7 West Virginia

 3. Kansas @ Kansas State

 4. Illinois @ Nebraska

 5. North Carolina @ Duke

 6. Oklahoma State @ #6 Oklahoma

 7. Purdue @ Minnesota

 8. #16 Fresno State @ Boise State

 9. Pillow Fight: Bowling Green (1-8) @ Central Michigan (1-9)

10. Tie Breaker: pick the winner and the final score: South Carolina @ #19 Florida

PS- Someone wondered if we’d ever had a 10 game winner. The answer is yes, Ricky Weaver did it once. I think there may have been another, but I don’t have any past years other than last year and 2016.
