Obadiah 3 (Listen)
3 The pride of your heart has deceived you,
you who live in the clefts of the rock,1
in your lofty dwelling,
who say in your heart,
“Who will bring me down to the ground?”
Obadiah 17 (Listen)
17 But in Mount Zion there shall be those who escape,
and it shall be holy,
and the house of Jacob shall possess their own possessions.
Hymn: TLH 467, st. 1,7: Built on the Rock the Church doth Stand
1. Built on the Rock the Church doth stand,
Even when steeples are falling;
Crumbled have spires in every land,
Bells still are chiming and calling,
Calling the young and old to rest,
But above all the soul distrest,
Longing for rest everlasting.
7. Grant then, O God, where’er men roam,
That, when the church-bells are ringing,
Many in saving faith may come
Where Christ His message is bringing:
“I know Mine own, Mine own know Me;
Ye, not the world, My face shall see.
My peace I leave with you.” Amen.
