Haggadah - Part 1

August 19

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 113 – 114

Verse of the Day: Psalm 114:1 – 2 – “When Israel went forth out of Egypt, The house of Jacob from a people of strange language; Judah became his sanctuary, Israel his dominion.”

Today we begin reading Psalms that are a part of the haggadah. This is a liturgy of the story of God’s deliverance of Israel from Egypt. They are a part of the Passover celebration in remembrance of what God did during the Exodus.

The two psalms we read today were used before the feast. They capture in poetry the liturgy read during the Passover meal. Psalm 113 focuses on those involved upon the grace of God – He bends from heaven and redeems His people. Psalm 114 recalls their deliverance which is the central reason for the celebration.

As you read these today, recall the great grace and hand of God who has delivered you. 

Prayer: Grand and glorious God, thank You for the deliverance that only You can provide. Amen.
