Tobit 13:1-8 Tuesday Morning 1
Blest be God who lives forever. * and blest be his kingdom.
He punishes, he also has mercy, * he leads men to the depths of Sheol.
He restores them from the great destruction; * no one can escape his hand.
Proclaim him, Israel's sons, amid the nations, * for though he has scattered you among them, * there he has shown you his greatness.
Praise him in the presence of all the living, * for he is our Lord and our God * our Father and God forever.
He punished you because of our sins, * but he will again have mercy on you all;
he will gather you from all the nations, * from those among whom you were scattered.
If you turn to him with all your heart, * to do what is right before him,
then he will turn to you; * he will hide his face no longer.
Now think what he has done for you, * give thanks to him with all your voice.
Give praise to the Lord for his justice, * and exalt the King of all ages.
In this land of exile I will thank him, * and show forth his greatness and might * to the race of sinful men.
Sinners, come back to him, * do what is right before him.
Who knows but he will be gracious * and receive you with pity?
I will sing to my God * and rejoice in the King of heaven.
Let all men speak of his greatness, * and sing his praises in Jerusalem.
