A Year in Proverbs – 1:20-22

A Year in Proverbs - August

Out in the open wisdom calls aloud,
she raises her voice in the public square;
on top of the wall[d] she cries out,
at the city gate she makes her speech:
“How long will you who are simple love your simple ways?
How long will mockers delight in mockery
and fools hate knowledge?

Praise the Lord, My Soul

Praise the Lord, O my soul

Praise the Lord, my soul;
Every corner of myself, ever praise his holy name.

Praise the Lord, my soul,
Who forgives all our sins, heals all diseases,
Who redeems my life, and crowns me with love and compassion;

Praise the Lord, saints and angels,
Who do his bidding, who obey his word.
Whose hearts hold his purposes, and do his will.

Praise the Lord, all his works everywhere in his dominion.
Who has established his throne in heaven,
And whose kingdom rules over all.

Praise the Lord, my soul.
