18th Sunday After Pentecost
September 23, 2018
The LORD made it known to me and I knew;
> then you showed me their deeds.
But I was like a gentle lamb
> led to the slaughter.
I did not know it was against me
> they devised schemes, saying,
“Let us destroy the tree with its fruit,
> let us cut him off from the land of the living,
> that his name be remembered no more.”
But, O LORD of hosts, who judges righteously,
> who tests the heart and the mind,
let me see your vengeance upon them,
> for to you have I committed my cause.
