Psalm 65. 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
1 Praise waiteth for Thee, O God, in Zion; and unto Thee shall the vow be performed.
2 O Thou that hearest prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come.
3 Iniquities prevail against me; as for our transgressions, Thou shalt purge them away.
4 Blessed is the man whom Thou choosest and causest to approach unto Thee, that he may dwell in Thy courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Thy house, even of Thy holy temple.
5 By fearsome deeds of righteousness wilt Thou answer us, O God of our salvation, who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth and of them that are afar off upon the sea,
6 who by His strength setteth fast the mountains, being girded with power,
7 who stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves and the tumult of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at Thy signs; Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth and waterest it; Thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water; Thou preparest them corn when Thou hast so provided it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly, Thou settlest the furrows thereof; Thou makest it soft with showers, Thou blessest the sprouting thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness, and Thy paths drip with fatness.
12 They drip upon the pastures of the wilderness, and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks, the valleys also are covered over with corn. They shout for joy, they also sing.
Lord our God, bring us together as one people before you we pray. Give us your Spirit so that we may know you, so that joy may fill our hearts, not only for ourselves but also for others. Root out evil from the earth, that we may not take up its temptations. Sweep away all that offends you, all lying, deceit, and hate between nations. Grant that all people may come to know you, so that disunity and conflict may be swept away and your eternal kingdom may arise on earth and we may rejoice in it. For your kingdom can come to people even while on earth to bring them happiness and to make them your own children. Yes, Lord God, we want to be your children, your people, held in your hand, so that your name may be honoured, your kingdom may come, and your will be done on earth as in heaven. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
As we reach the end of another day and the going down of the sun, may God reach out his mighty hand to bless all who keep his Sabbath and His word. Have a wonderful evening brothers and sisters, take everything to the lord in prayer.
