Judith 16:1-2, 15-16 Wednesday Morning 1
Praise my God with tambourines, * sing to my Lord with cymbals.
Sing to him a new song, * call on his name with praise.
For the God who stamps out wars, * he is the Lord.
I will sing a new song to my God. * Lord, you are great and glorious, * undefeatable and marvelous in might.
May your every creature serve you; * for you spoke and they all were made.
You exhaled and they were formed; * no one can resist your voice.
Should mountains topple and fall in the waves, * should rocks melt like wax from your look,
yet to those who fear you * you would still show kindness.
A sweet-smelling sacrifice is worth next to nothing, * still less the fat burned for you in offering.
But whoever fears the Lord * is great forever.
