"Like Your name, so Your praise--
to the ends of the earth.
With justice Your right hand is full."
Alter comments on the word justice:
"the Hebrew tsedeq can also mean "victory" or "bountiful act."What a rich and challenging concept is God's justice!
As I read the Psalms in this translation, I note the frequent repetition of the word "breath" and am reminded of a by-gone resolution which, as I kept it, helped restore my health. Both spiritual and bodily health and, indeed, life itself require breath. The only New Year's Resolution currently on my list is: Breathe deeply.
I suppose I've just added a second, continuing, resolution: Read as many good books as I can and share them in my blog with as many friends and strangers as possible.
I've been downloading many, many samples as I explore titles and plan my reading for the New Year.
My favorite Christmas present:
Some sort of eBook reader is the future of reading. No one loves the "book experience" more than I, but a Kindle in a leather cover is an acceptable substitute. It opens up a world of reading materials that I couldn't otherwise find or afford.
Remember that you can download all Kindle books on multiple devices and have your reading synced across devices.visit Amazon to download free reading apps.
Happy New Year!
