Thematic Bible: God a
The Lord is God, and He has given us light;
Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
The Lord gives grace and glory;
No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all.
And there will no longer be any night; and they will not have need of the light of a lamp nor the light of the sun, because the Lord God will illumine them; and they will reign forever and ever.
A Psalm of David.
The Lord is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the defense of my life;
Whom shall I dread?
For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.
“Your sun will no longer set,
Nor will your moon wane;
For you will have the Lord for an everlasting light,
And the days of your mourning will be over.
Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy.
Though I fall I will rise;
Though I dwell in darkness, the Lord is a light for me.
His radiance is like the sunlight;

And there is the hiding of His power.
“There is no one holy like the Lord,
Indeed, there is no one besides You,
Nor is there any rock like our God.
“The Lord lives, and blessed be my rock;
And exalted be God, the rock of my salvation,
“The Rock! His work is perfect,
For all His ways are just;
A God of faithfulness and without injustice,
Righteous and upright is He.
“Indeed their rock is not like our Rock,
Even our enemies themselves judge this.
For who is God, but the Lord?
And who is a rock, except our God,
A Psalm of David.
To You, O Lord, I call;
My rock, do not be deaf to me,
For if You are silent to me,
I will become like those who go down to the pit.
He only is my rock and my salvation,
My stronghold; I shall not be greatly shaken.
But the Lord has been my stronghold,
And my God the rock of my refuge.
God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;
