The Psalms are the ancient prayers of the Jewish people, here paraphrased into contemporary language.
This Sunday's Psalm
Ps 39:2, 4, 7-10
Patiently, I waited for the Lord,
and God stretched out to me,
drew close to hear my cry.
On my tongue he placed a new song:
Praise of my God.
Sacrifices, offerings, you don’t want these.
rather my heart open to your word.
Neither do you want gifts and donations
but my very self.
In your book, it is written
that I should do your will.
I desire to follow your law
from the depths of my being.
In the midst of many people
I have proclaimed your righteousness.
I have not been reluctant
to proclaim you, O God.
