Leader: The Mighty One, God, the Lord, speaks and summons the earth from the rising of the sun to where it sets.
All: From Zion, perfect in beauty, God shines forth.
Leader: Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before Him, and around Him a tempest rages.
All: He summons the heavens above, and the earth, that He may judge His people:
Leader: “Gather to me this consecrated people, who made a covenant with me by sacrifice.”
All: And the heavens proclaim His righteousness, for He is a God of justice.
Leader: “Listen, my people, and I will speak; I will testify against you, Israel: I am God, your God.
All: I bring no charges against you concerning your Sacrifices or concerning your burnt offerings, which are ever before me.
Leader: “Consider this, you who forget God, or I will tear you to pieces, with no one to rescue you:
All: Those who sacrifice thank offerings honor me, and to the blameless I will show my salvation.” Amen.
