Psalms 30:1-12
I will exalt you, יְהוָה,
for you lifted me out of the depths
and did not let my enemies gloat over me. 1

יְהוָה my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me. 2

You, יְהוָה, brought me up from the realm of the dead;
you spared me from going down to the pit. 3

Sing the praises of יְהוָה, you his faithful people;
praise his holy name. 4

For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. 5

When I felt secure, I said, “I will never be shaken.” 6

יְהוָה, when you favored me,
you made my royal mountain stand firm;
but when you hid your face, I was dismayed. 7

To you, יְהוָה, I called; to יְהוָה I cried for mercy: 8

“What is gained if I am silenced, if I go down to the pit?
Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness? 9

Hear, יְהוָה, and be merciful to me;
יְהוָה, be my help.” 10

You turned my wailing into dancing;
you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, 11

that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent.
יְהוָה my God, I will praise you forever. 12

Proverbs 16:3
Commit to The LORD everything you do. Then your plans will succeed.

Website Changes

A list of changes for the week of December 16th 2017 John Marsing

Announcement Page Modifications

  • Added the Welcome About Us section.
  • Removed the Building God's Economy - Biblical Permaculture section.
    No one showed up last Wednesday and therefore I think it should be removed. I think I have way over estimated the interest in this topic...oh well.
    This should be a topic for the next Elders meeting.
  • Changed the Upcoming Events section Tuesday Night Torah Study by adding a current link to the Book and Chapter that Jerry will be reading next.
  • Changed the Shabbat Schedule section In Depth Study by adding a current link to the Book and Chapter that Ralphie will be reading next.
  • Removed the Parasha section. It seemed redundant as it has been elevated to the Home Page with the Torah button. It's also mentioned in the upcoming events section.
    See the next item in this regard


  • Worked on my website, My Hebrew Bible, to make the Parasha / Book-Chapter experience better.
