Haggadah - Part 2

August 20

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 115 – 118

Verse of the Day: Psalm 117:1 – 2 – “O praise Jehovah, all ye nations; Laud him, all ye peoples. For his lovingkindness is great toward us; And the truth of Jehovah endureth for ever. Praise ye Jehovah.”

Yesterday we started the songs that are used in the haggadah – the liturgy of the Passover. Before the meal they will sing the first two psalms in the group, and after the meal they sing the final songs – Psalms 115 – 118.

They sing of the glory that belongs to God alone. Following this, in Psalm 116 they proclaim love for God and what He has done for them. In Psalm 117 (our passage above) is a call for all people everywhere to praise God. Finally in the triumphant song of praise (118), we are reminded that it is better to trust God than man (verse 8).

Prayer: Today, I will sing my praises of Your wonderful Name, O Lord. May I focus today on You and Your mercy and grace. Amen.
