day 32 (trek 2): put a psalm in my heart

We have four psalms to read and sketch today: Psalm 82-85.

Morning. Psalm 82. I’ll illustrate a weak person, a bent over stick figure using a cane.

“How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? [Selah] Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” (82.2-4)

Mid-day. Psalm 83. What do I draw here? A pile of poo!

“Do to them as you did to Midian, as to Sisera and Jabin at the river Kishon, who were destroyed at En-dor, who became dung for the ground.” (Ps. 83.9-10)

Evening. Psalm 84. Now my pencil puts out a bird’s nest.

“Even a sparrow finds a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, at your altars, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.” (84.3)

Night. Psalm 85. An “XO” for a kiss and hug is what I’ll draw in my Bible’s margin.

“Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.” (85.10)
