It seems like it never ends — and for that I am grateful. I am appointed to preach three times this week. I could greatly use your prayers.

Tuesday — Ephesians 6:10-20 - the armor of God, part 2
Wednesday — Psalm 86 - praying through the hard and suffering seasons of life
Sunday — Revelation 2:12-17 - the church of Pergamum...the compromising church

Psalm 19:10-14 — 10 They are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb. 11 Moreover, by them Your servant is warned; In keeping them there is great reward. 12 Who can discern his errors? Acquit me of hidden faults. 13 Also keep back Your servant from presumptuous sins; Let them not rule over me; Then I will be blameless, And I shall be acquitted of great transgression. 14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.


Psalm 19:11-15 (10-14, Eng)
הַֽנֶּחֱמָדִ֗ים מִ֭זָּהָב וּמִפַּ֣ז רָ֑ב וּמְתוּקִ֥ים מִ֝דְּבַ֗ש וְנֹ֣פֶת צוּפִֽים׃
12 גַּֽם־עַ֭בְדְּךָ נִזְהָ֣ר בָּהֶ֑ם בְּ֝שָׁמְרָ֗ם עֵ֣קֶב רָֽב׃
13 שְׁגִיאֹ֥ות מִֽי־יָבִ֑ין מִֽנִּסְתָּרֹ֥ות נַקֵּֽנִי׃
14 גַּ֤ם מִזֵּדִ֨ים׀ חֲשֹׂ֬ךְ עַבְדֶּ֗ךָ אַֽל־יִמְשְׁלוּ־בִ֣י אָ֣ז אֵיתָ֑ם וְ֝נִקֵּ֗יתִי מִפֶּ֥שַֽׁע רָֽב׃
15 יִֽהְי֥וּ לְרָצֹ֨ון׀ אִמְרֵי־פִ֡י וְהֶגְיֹ֣ון לִבִּ֣י לְפָנֶ֑יךָ יְ֝הוָ֗ה צוּרִ֥י וְגֹאֲלִֽי׃

Did you have a Hebrew emphasis when you were in seminary?

Yes, my ThM (Masters in Theology) was in Old Testament/Hebrew under Dr. Bill Barrick.

Excellent! It's my concentration too, though I'm getting better at reading the text and will continue to practice reading, writing and reciting the text.
