17 The clouds poured out water.
The skies resounded with thunder.
Your arrows also flashed around.
18 The voice of your thunder was in the whirlwind.
The lightnings lit up the world.
The earth trembled and shook.
19 Your way was through the sea;
your paths through the great waters.
Your footsteps were not known.
20 You led your people like a flock,
by the hand of Moses and Aaron.

I love your law.
164 Seven times a day, I praise you,
because of your righteous ordinances.

Nothing causes them to stumble.

for his loving kindness endures forever.

The right hand of Yahweh does valiantly!”

while I pass by.
A Song of Ascents. By David.
1 See how good and how pleasant it is
for brothers to live together in unity!
2 It is like the precious oil on the head,
that ran down on the beard,
even Aaron’s beard;
that came down on the edge of his robes;
3 like the dew of Hermon,
that comes down on the hills of Zion:
1 Blessed be Yahweh, my rock,
who teaches my hands to war,
and my fingers to battle:
2 my loving kindness, my fortress,
my high tower, my deliverer,
my shield, and he in whom I take refuge;
who subdues my people under me.
4 Man is like a breath.
His days are like a shadow that passes away.
2 for they have opened the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit against me.
They have spoken to me with a lying tongue.
3 They have also surrounded me with words of hatred,
and fought against me without a cause.
4 In return for my love, they are my adversaries;
but I am in prayer.
