what is man that you take notice of him, or the son of man that you pay attention to him? You made him a little less than divine, but you crowned him with glory and honor. You gave him dominion over the work of your hands, you put all things under his feet: Sheep and cattle all of them, wild creatures of the field, birds in the sky, fish in the sea whatever moves through the currents of the oceans. LORD, our Lord, how excellent is your name in all the earth! To the Director: Accompanied by female voices. A Davidic Psalm.

Psalm 104:1-34

Bless the LORD, my soul; LORD, my God, you are very great. You are clothed in splendor and majesty; you are wrapped in light like a garment, stretching out the sky like a curtain. He lays the beams of his roof loft on the water above, making clouds his chariot, walking on the wings of the wind.read more.
He makes the winds his messengers, blazing fires his servants. He established the earth on its foundations, so that it never falters. You covered the primeval ocean like a garment; the water stood above the mountains. They flee at your rebuke; they rush away at the sound of your thunders. Mountains rise up and valleys sink to the place you have ordained for them. You have set a boundary they cannot cross; they will never again cover the earth. He causes springs to gush forth into rivers that flow between the mountains. They give water for animals of the field to drink; the wild donkeys quench their thirst. Birds of the sky live beside them and chirp a song among the foliage. He waters the mountains from his heavenly rooms; the earth is satisfied from the fruit of your work. He causes grass to sprout for the cattle and plants for people to cultivate, to produce food from the land, like wine that makes the heart of people happy, oil that makes the face glow, and food that sustains people. The loftiest trees are satisfied, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted, the birds build their nests there, and the heron builds its nest among the evergreen. The high mountains are for wild goats; the cliffs are a refuge for the rock badger. He made the moon to mark time; the sun knows its setting time. You bring darkness and it becomes night; when every beast of the forest prowls. Young lions roar for prey, seeking their food from God. When the sun rises, they gather and lie down in their dens. People go out to their work and labor until evening. How numerous are your works, LORD! You have made them all wisely; the earth is filled with your creations. There is the deep and wide sea, teeming with numberless creatures, living things small and great. There, the ships pass through; Leviathan, which you created, frolics in it. All of them look to you to provide them their food at the proper time. They receive what you give them; when you open your hand, they are filled with good things. When you withdraw your favor, they are disappointed; Take away their breath, and they die and return to dust. When you send your spirit, they are created, and you replenish the surface of the earth. May the glory of the LORD last forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works! He looks at the earth and it shakes; he touches the mountains and they smoke. I will sing to the LORD with my whole being; I will sing to my God continually! May my thoughts be pleasing to him; indeed, I will rejoice in the LORD!

Matthew 6:26-30

Look at the birds in the sky. They don't plant or harvest or gather food into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. You are more valuable than they are, aren't you? Can any of you add a single hour to the length of your life by worrying? And why do you worry about clothes? Consider the lilies in the field and how they grow. They don't work or spin yarn, read more.
but I tell you that not even Solomon in all of his splendor was clothed like one of them. Now if that is the way God clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and thrown into an oven tomorrow, won't he clothe you much better you who have little faith?

Luke 12:24-27

Consider the crows. They don't plant or harvest, they don't even have a storeroom or barn, yet God feeds them. How much more valuable are you than birds! Can any of you add an hour to the length of your life by worrying? So if you can't do a small thing like that, why worry about other things? read more.
Consider how the lilies grow. They don't work or spin yarn, but I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.

I long for your deliverance; I have looked to your word, placing my hope in it. My eyes grow weary with respect to what you have promised I keep asking, "When will you comfort me?" Though I have become like a water skin dried by smoke, I have not forgotten your statutes. How many days must your servant endure this? When will you judge those who persecute me? The arrogant have dug pitfalls for me disobeying your instruction. All of your commands are reliable. I am persecuted without cause help me! Though the arrogant nearly destroyed me on earth, I did not abandon your precepts. Revive me according to your gracious love; and I will keep the decrees that you have proclaimed. Lamed Your word is forever, LORD; it is firmly established in heaven. Your faithfulness continues from generation to generation. You established the earth, and it stands firm.

I will never forget your precepts, for you have revived me with them. I am yours, so save me, since I have sought your precepts. The wicked lay in wait to destroy me, while I ponder your decrees. I have observed that all things have their limit, but your commandment is very broad. Mem How I love your instruction! Every day it is my meditation. Your commands make me wiser than my adversaries, since they are always with me. I am more insightful than my teachers, because your decrees are my meditations. I have more common sense than the elders, for I observe your precepts. I keep away from every evil choice so that I may keep your word. I do not avoid your judgments, for you pointed them out to me. How pleasing is what you have to say to me tasting better than honey. I obtain understanding from your precepts; therefore I hate every false way. Nun Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light for my pathway. I have given my word and affirmed it, to keep your righteous judgments. I am severely afflicted. Revive me, LORD, according to your word. LORD, please accept my voluntary offerings of praise, and teach me your judgments. Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I do not forget your instruction. Though the wicked lay a trap for me, I haven't wandered away from your precepts. I have inherited your decrees forever, because they are the joy of my heart. As a result, I am determined to carry out your statutes forever. Samek I despise the double-minded, but I love your instruction. You are my fortress and shield; I hope in your word. Leave me, you who practice evil, that I may observe the commands of my God. Sustain me, God, as you have promised, and I will live. Do not let me be ashamed of my hope. Support me, that I may be saved, and I will carry out your statutes consistently. You reject all who wander from your statutes, since their deceitfulness is vain. You remove all the wicked of the earth like dross; therefore I love your decrees. My flesh trembles out of fear of you, and I am in awe of your judgments. Ayin I have acted with justice and righteousness; do not abandon me to my oppressors. Back up your servant in a positive way; do not let the arrogant oppress me. My eyes fail as I look for your salvation and for your righteous promise. Act toward your servant consistent with your gracious love, and teach me your statutes. Since I am your servant, give me understanding, so I will know your decrees. It is time for the LORD to act, since they have violated your instruction. I truly love your commands more than gold, including fine gold. I truly consider all of your precepts all of them to be just, while I despise every false way. Peyh Your decrees are wonderful that's why I observe them. The disclosure of your words illuminates, providing understanding to the simple. I open my mouth and pant as I long for your commands. Turn in my direction and show mercy to me, as you have decreed regarding those who love your name. Direct my footsteps by your promise, and do not let any kind of iniquity rule over me. Deliver me from human oppression and I will keep your precepts. Show favor to your servant, and teach me your statutes. My eyes shed rivers of tears, when others do not obey your instruction. Tsade LORD, you are righteous, and your judgments are right. You have ordered your decrees to us rightly, and they are very faithful. My zeal consumes me because my enemies forget your words. Your word is very pure, and your servant loves it. Though I may be small and despised, I do not neglect your precepts. Your righteousness is an eternal righteousness, and your instruction is true. Though trouble and anguish overwhelm me, your commands remain my delight. Your righteous decrees are eternal; give me understanding, and I will live. Qof I have cried out with all of my heart. Answer me, LORD! I will observe your statutes. I have called out to you, "Save me, so I may keep your decrees." I get up before dawn and cry for help; I place my hope in your word. I look forward to the night watches, when I may meditate on what you have said.

Acts 8:27-35

So he got up and went. Now there was an Ethiopian eunuch, who was a member of the court of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians. He was in charge of all her treasures and had come up to Jerusalem to worship. Now he was returning home, seated in his chariot, and reading from the prophet Isaiah. The Spirit told Philip, "Approach that chariot and stay near it." read more.
So Philip ran up to it and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah out loud. Philip asked, "Do you understand what you're reading?" The man replied, "How can I unless someone guides me?" So he invited Philip to get in and sit with him. This was the passage of Scripture he was reading: "Like a sheep he was led away to be slaughtered, and like a lamb is silent before its shearer, so he does not open his mouth. In his humiliation, justice was denied him. Who can describe his descendants? For his life is taken away from the earth." The eunuch asked Philip, "I ask you, who is the prophet talking about? Himself? Or someone else?" Then Philip began to speak, and, starting from this Scripture, he told him the good news about Jesus.

Psalm 119:55
