Today, as a part of the PPMY project, we read six very brief psalms: Psalm 120-125. Read a pair of them this morning, a pair at mid-day, and a pair tonight.
What will you draw in your Bible’s margin as you read each psalm? As for me I’ll sketch a peace symbol, the moon, a set of gates, a throne, a snare, and a scepter.
This morning. Psalm 120-121.
“I am for peace, but when I speak, they are for war!” (120.7)
“The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night.” (121.6)
Mid-day. Psalm 122-123.
“Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem!” (122.2)
“To you I lift up my eyes, O you who are enthroned in the heavens!” (123.1)
Tonight. Psalm 124-125.
“We have escaped like a bird from the snare of the fowlers; the snare is broken, and we have escaped!” (124.7)
“For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest on the land allotted to the righteous, lest the righteous stretch out their hands to do wrong.” (125.3)
