PSALM 66.

Monday 1 June 2015.
WORD OF THE DAY:
[Psalm 145:14]
The Lord upholds all those (of His own) who are falling, and raises up all those who are bowed down.  

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
PSALM 66.
1 English - (Amplified Bible Version)
[Psalm 66:1-12; 19-20]
1. Make a joyful noise unto God, all the earth;
2. Sing forth the honour and glory of His Name; make His praise glorious! 
3. Say to God: "How awesone and fearfully  glorious are Your works! Through the greatness of Your power shall Your enemies submit themselves to You (with feigned and reluctant obedience.)
4. "All the earth shall bow down to You and sing praises to You; they shall praise Your Name in song." Selah (pause and calmly think about that!)
5. Come and see the works of God; see how (to save His people, He smites their foes; He is) terrible in His doings toward the children of men. 
6. He turned the sea into dry land, they crossed the river on foot; there did we rejoice in Him. 
7. He rules by His might forever, His eyes observe and keep watch over the nations; let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah (Pause and calmly think of that)!
8. Bless our God, O peoples, give Him grateful thanks and make the voice of His praise be heard, 
9. Who put and kept us among the living, and Has not allowed our feet to slip. 
10. For You, O God, have proved us; You have 
tried us as silver is tried, refined, and purified. 
11. You brought us into the net, (the prison, fortress, the dungeon); You laid a heavy burden upon our loins. 
12. You caused men to ride over our heads (when we were prostrate); we went through fire and through water, but You brought us out into a broad, moist place, (to abundance and refreshment and the open air).
                           > > > 
19. But certainly God Has heard me; He Has given heed to the voice of my prayer. 
20. Blessed be God, Who Has not rejected my prayer, nor removed His mercy and loving-kindness from being (as it always is) with me.

1. English - [New English Translation]
[Psalm 42:1-11]
1. As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for You, O God!
2. I thirst for God, for the living God. I say: "When will I be able to go and appear in God's presence?" 
3. I cannot eat, I weep day and night; all day long they say to me: "Where is your God?"
4. I will remember and weep! For I was once walking along with the great throng to the temple of God, shouting and giving thanks along with the crowd as we celebrated the holy festival. 
5. Why are you depressed, o my soul? Why are you upset? Wait for God! For I will again give thanks to my God for His saving intervention. 
6. I am depressed, so I will pray to You while I am trapped here in the region of the upper Jordan, from Hermon, from Mount Mizar. 
7. One deep stream calls out to another at the sound of Your waterfalls; all Your billows and waves overwhelm me. 
8. By day the Lord decrees His loyal love, and by night He gives me a song, a prayer to the living God. 
9. I will pray to God, my High Ridge: "Why do  You ignore me? Why must I walk around mourning because my enemies oppress me?

3. My siel dors na God, na die lewende God; wanneer sal ek ingaan en voor die aangesig van God verskyn?
4. My trane is spys dag en nag, omdat hulle die hele dag vir my sê: "Waar is jou God?"
5. Hieraan wil ek dink en my siel uitstort in my: hoe ek gewoond was om voort te trek met die skare, hulle gelei het na die huis van God, met die stem van jubel en lof - 'n feesvierende menigte!
6. Wat buig jy jou neer, o my siel, en is onrustig in my? Hoop op God; want ek sal Hom nog loof - die verlossing van Sy aangesig! 
7. O my God, my siel buig hom neer in my; daarom dink ek aan U uit die land van die Jordaan en die Hermons, van die klein gebergtes af. 
8. Die vloed roep na die vloed by die gebruis na U waterstrome; al U bare en U golwe het oor my heengegaan. 
9. Maar die Here sal oordag Sy goedertierenheid gebied, en in die nag sal sy lied by my wees, 'n gebed tot die God van my lewe. 
10. Ek wil spreek tot God: "My Rots, waarom vergeet U my? Waarom gaan ek in die rou deur die vyande se verdrukking?

WORD OF THE DAY:
(Acts 1:8,9)
8. "But you shall receive power when the Holy Sprit Has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem; and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
9. Now, when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received and carried Him away, out of their sight. 

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
PENTECOST. 
1. English - (New English Translation.)
[Acts 2:1-21]
1. Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. 
2. Suddenly, a sound like a violent wind blowing came from heaven, and filled the entire house where they were sitting. 
3. And tongues spreading out like a fire appeared to them and came to rest on each one of them. 
4. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit, and they began to speak in other languages as the Spirit enabled them. 
5. Now there were devout Jews from every nation under heaven residing in Jerusalem. 
6. When the sound occurred, a crowd gathered and was in confusion, because each one heard them speaking in his own language. 
7. Completely baffled, they said: "Aren't all these who are speaking Galileans?
8. "And how is it that each one of us hears them in our own native language?
9. "Parthians, Medes, Elamites, and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and the province of Asia. 
10. "Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and parts of Libya near Cyrene, and the transient visitors from Rome,
11. "Both Jews and the proselytes, (to Judaism from other religions) Cretans and Arabs too - we hear them speaking in our own languages about the great deeds God Has Has done!"
12. All were astounded and greatly confused, saying to one another: "What does this mean?"
13. But others jeered at the speakers, saying: "They are drunk on new wine!"
14. But Peter stood up with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them: "You men of Judea and all you who live in Jerusalem, know this and listen carefully to what I say: 
15. "In spite of what you think, these men are not drunk, for it is only nine o'clock in the morning. 
16. "But this is what was spoken about through the prophet Joel:
17. 'And in the last days it will be, 'says God: "That I will pour out my Spirit on all people, and your sons and your daughters will prophesy, (telling forth the divine counsels) and your young men will see visions, (divinely granted appearances)
and your old men will dream (divinely suggested) dreams. 
18. "Even on my servants, both men and women in those days, I will pour out My Spirit, and they will prophesy (telling forth the divine counsels and predicting future events, pertaining especially to God's kingdom.)
19. "And I will perform wonders in the sky above and miraculous signs on the earth below, blood and fire and clouds of smoke vapour;
20. "The sun will be turned into darkness and the moon into blood, before the great and glorious day of the Lord comes - that great and notable and conspicuous and renowned (day.)
21. "And it shall be that everyone who calls upon the Name of the Lord, (invoking, adoring, and worshiping the Lord Christ), will be saved."

Sondag 24 Mei 2015.
WOORD VAN DIE DAG:
(Handelinge 1:8,9)
8. "Maar julle sal krag ontvang wanneer die Heilige Gees oor julle kom, en julle sal my getuies wees in Jerusalem, sowel as in die hele Judéa en Samaria, en tot aan die uiterste van die aarde."
9. En nadat Hy dit gesê het, is Hy opgeneem terwyl hulle dit sien; en 'n wolk het Hom voor hulle oë weggeneem. 

BOODSKAP VAN DIE DAG:
PINKSTERFEES:
2. Afrikaans - (Ou Afrikaanse Vertaling).
[Handelinge 2:1-21]
1. En toe die dag van die Pinksterfees aangebreek het, was hulle almal eendragtig bymekaar. 
2. En daar kom skielik uit die hemel 'n geluid soos van 'n geweldige rukwind, en dit het die hele huis gevul waar hulle gesit het. 
3. Toe is deur hulle tonge gesien soos van vuur, wat hulleself verdeel en op elkeen van hulle gaan sit. 
4. En hulle is almal vervul met die Heilige Gees, en het begin spreek in ander tale, soos die Gees aan hulle gegee het om uit te spreek. 
5. En daar het in Jerusalem Jode gewoon, godsdienstige manne, uit elke nasie wat onder die hemel is. 
6. En toe hierdie geluid kom, het die menigte saamgestroom en was in die war, want elkeen het gehoor hoe hulle in sy eie taal spreek; 
7. En hulle was almal verbaas en verwonderd en sê vir mekaar: "Is almal wat daar spreek, dan nie Galiléërs nie? 
8. "En hoe hoor ons hulle, elkeen in ons eie taal waarin ons gebore is?
9. "Parthers en Meders en Elamiete en die inwoners van Mesopotamië, Judéa en Kappadócië, Pontus en Asië,
10. "Frígië en Pamfilië, Egipte en die streke van Líbië by Ciréne, en Romeine wat hier vertoef, Jode en Jodegenote,
11. "Kretense en Arabiere - ons hoor hoe hulle in ons eie taal oor die groot dade van God spreek!" 
12. En hulle was almal verbaas en radeloos en sê die een vir die ander: "Wat kan dit tog wees?"
13. Maar ander het gespot en gesê: "Hulle is vol soetwyn."
14. Maar Petrus het opgestaan met die elf en sy stem verhef en hulle toegespreek: "Joodse manne en almal wat in Jerusalem woon, dit moet julle weet, en luister na my woorde:
15. "Hierdie mense is tog nie dronk soos julle dink nie, want dit is nog maar die derde uur in die môre, (nege uur).
16. "Maar dit is wat deur die profeet Joël gespreek is:
17. "En in die laaste dae, spreek God, sal Ek my Gees uitstort op alle vlees, en julle seuns en julle dogters sal profeteer, en julle jongelinge sal gesigte sien, en julle ou mense sal drome droom. 
18. "En ook op My diensknegte en diensmaagde sal Ek in dié dae van My Gees uitstort, en hulle sal profeteer. 
19. "En Ek sal wonders gee bo in die hemel en tekens onder op die aarde, bloed en vuur en rookdamp. 
20. "Die son sal verander in duisternis, en die maan in bloed, voordat die groot en deurlugtige dag van die Here kom. 
21. "En elkeen wat die Naam van die Here aanroep, sal gered word."

1. O Lord, God of my salvation, I have cried out day and night before You. 
2. Let my prayer come before You; incline Your ear to my cry. 

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
PSALM 40, second section...
1. English - (Amplified Bible Version).
(Psalm 40:9-17)
9. I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great assembly (tidings of uprightness  and right standing with God). Behold, I have not restrained My lips, as You know, O Lord.  
10. I have not concealed Your righteousness within My heart; I have proclaimed Your faithfulness and Your salvation. I have not hid away Your steadfast love and Your truth from the great assembly. 
11. Withhold not Your tender mercy from Me, O Lord; let Your loving kindness and Your truth continually preserve Me!
12. For innumerable evils have compassed Me about; My iniquities have taken such hold on Me, that I am not able to look up. They are more than the hairs of My head, and My heart has failed Me and forsaken Me. 
13. Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver Me; O Lord, make haste to help Me!
14. Let them be put to shame and confounded together who seek and require My life, to destroy it; let them be driven backward and brought to dishonour who wish Me evil and delight in My hurt!  
15. Let them be desolate by reason of their shame, who say to me: "Aha, aha!"
16. Let all those who seek and require You, rejoice and be glad in You; let such as love Your salvation say continually: "The Lord be magnified!"
17. (As for  me,) I am poor and needy, yet the Lord takes thought and plans for Me. You are My Help and My Deliverer, O My God, do not tarry! 

Dinsdag 26 Mei 2015.
WOORD VAN DIE DAG: 
(Psalm 88:2,3)
2. Here, God van my heil, bedags roep ek, in die nag is dit voor U. 
3. Laat my gebed voor U aangesig kom, neig U oor tot my smeking. 

BOODSKAP VAN DIE DAG:
PSALM 40, tweede gedeelte...
2. Afrikaans - (Ou Afrikaanse Vertaling)
(Psalm 40:10-18)
10. Ek het 'n blye boodskap van geregtigheid in die groot vergadering verkondig; kyk, My lippe bedwing Ek nie. Here, U weet dit. 
11. U geregtigheid bedek Ek nie binne-in my hart nie; van U trou en U heil spreek Ek; U goedertienheid en U trou verberg Ek nie vir die groot vergadering nie. 
12. U, O Here, sal U barmhartighede van My nie terughou nie; laat U goedertierenheid en U trou My altyddeur behoed.   
13. Want onheile sonder getal het My omring; My ongeregtighede het My ingehaal, en Ek kan nie sien nie; hulle is meer as die hare van My hoof, en My hart het My verlaat. 
14. Laat dit U behaag, Here, om My te red; Here, maak tog gou om My te help. 
15. Laat hulle wat My lewe soek, om dit weg te ruk, tesame beskaamd staan, en rooi van skaamte word; laat hulle wat behae het in My onheil, agteruitwyk en in die skande kom. 
16. Laat hulle wag vir My sê: "Ha, ha!" Vanweë hul beskaming verskrik wees. 
17. Laat almal wat U soek, in U vrolik en bly wees; laat die liefhebbers van U heil altyddeur sê: "Groot is die Here!"
18. Al is Ek ellendig en behoeftig - die Here dink aan My; U is My Hulp en My Redder; My God, vertoef tog nie!

PSALM 40.

Monday 25 May 2015. 
WORD OF THE DAY:
(Psalm 89:52)
Blessed be the Lord forevermore! Amen and Amen!

MESSAGE OF THE DAY:
PSALM 40. 
{Faith persevering in trial}
1. English - (Amplified Bible Version)
[Psalm 40:1-9]
1. I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to Me and heard My cry.
2. He drew me up out of a horrible pit, (a pit of tumult and of destruction), out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set My feet upon a rock, steadying My steps and establishing My goings. 
3. And He Has put a new song in My mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship), and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord. 
4. Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who makes the Lord his refuge and trust, and turns not to the proud, or to the followers of false gods. 
5. Many, O Lord my God, are the wonderful works which You have done, and Your thoughts toward us; no one can compare with You! If I should declare and speak of them, they are too many to be numbered. 
6. Sacrifice and offering You do not desire, nor have You delight in them; You have given Me the capacity to hear and obey, (Your law, a more valuable service than) burnt offerings and sin offerings [which] You do not require. 
7. Then said I (Jesus): "Behold I come; in the volume of the book it is written of Me;
8. "I delight to do Your will, O My God; yes, Your law is within My heart. 
9. "I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great assembly (tidings of uprightness and right standing with God). Behold, I have not restrained My lips, as You know, O Lord!"

BOODSKAP VAN DIE DAG:
{Welgeluksalig is hy wat op die Here vertrou!}
PSALM 40. 
2. Afrikaans - (Ou Afrikaanse Vertaling). 
[Psalm 40:2-9]
1. 'n Psalm van Dawid. 
2. Ek het die Here lank verwag, en Hy het Hom na My toe neergebuig en My hulpgeroep gehoor. 
3. En Hy het My uit die kuil van vernietiging, uit die modderige slyk opgetrek, en My voete op 'n rots gestel; Hy het My gange vasgemaak. 
4. Hy het 'n nuwe lied in My mond gegee, 'n lofsang tot eer van onse God. Baie sal dit sien en vrees en op die Here vertrou. 
5. Welgeluksalig is die man wat sy vertroue in die Here stel, en hom nie wend tot hoogmoediges en leuendienaars nie. 
6. Groot dinge het U gedoen, Here my God - U wonders en gedagtes vir ons; niemand kan met U vergelyk word nie. Wil ek dit verkondig en uitspreek, dan is dit te veel om te vertel. 
7. U het geen behae in slagoffer of spysoffer nie; ore het U vir My gegrawe; brandoffer en sondoffer het U nie geëis nie. 
8. Toe het Ek (Jesus) gesê: "Kyk, Ek kom; in die boekrol is dit My voorgeskrywe.
9. "Ek het lus, O My God, om U welbehae te doen, en U wet is binne-in My ingewande."
10. "Ek het 'n blye boodskap van geregtigheid in die groot vergadering verkondig; kyk, my lippe bedwing ek nie, Here, U weet dit."

(Psalm 37, second section...
[Psalm 37:14-26]

24. Though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.

15. Hulle swaard sal in hul hart gaan, en hulle boë sal verbreek word

22. Want die wat deur Hom geseën word, sal die aarde besit; maar die wat deur Hom vervloek word, sal uitgeroei word. 
23. Deur die Here word die gange van 'n man bevestig, en Hy het 'n welbehae in sy weg. 
24. As hy val, dan stort hy nie neer nie; want die Here ondersteun sy hand. 
25. Noen. Ek was jonk, ook het ek oud geword, maar nooit het ek die regverdige verlate gesien, of dat sy nageslag brood soek nie. 
26. Die hele dag ontferm hy hom en leen uit, en sy nageslag is 'n seën.

18. Kyk, die oog van die Here is op die wat Hom vrees, op die wat op Sy goedertierenheid wag. 
19. Om hulle siel te red van die dood, en hulle in die lewe te hou in hongersnood. 
20. Ons siel wag op die Here; Hy is ons hulp en ons skild;
21. Want ons hart is bly in Hom, omdat ons op Sy heilige Naam vertrou. 
22. Laat U goedertierenheid, Here, oor ons wees net soos ons op U wag!

A Psalm of David. 
1. In You O Lord, I have taken refuge, and put my trust; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in Your righteousness. 
2.  Turn Your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress of defense to save me. 
3. Since You are my Rock and my fortress, for the sake of Your Name, lead me and guide me. 
7. I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, for You have considered my trouble. You have known my soul in adversities;
8. And have not shut me up in the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a wide place. 
9. Have mercy O Lord, for I am in trouble;
my eyes wastes away with grief; yes, my soul and my body!
14. But as for me, I trust in You O Lord. I say: "You are my God!"
15. My times are in Your hand; deliver me  from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me. 
16. Make Your face shine upon Your servant; save me for Your mercies' sake. 
17. Do not let me be ashamed, O Lord, for I have called upon You; let the wicked be ashamed; let them be silent in the grave. 
18. Let the lying lips be put to silence, which speak insolent things proudly and contemtuously against the righteous.   
19. Oh how great is Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You, which You have prepared for those who trust in You, in the presence of the sons of men. 
20. You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence, from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion, from the strives of tongues.  
21. Blessed be the Lord, for He Has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!
22. For I said in my haste: "I am cut off from before Your eyes;" Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications, when I cried out to You.

22. Geloofd sy die Here, want Hy het Sy goedertierenheid aan my wonderbaar gemaak, in 'n vaste stad.  
23. Ek tog het in my angs gesê: "Ek het verdwyn, weg van U oë;" nogtans het U die stem vaan my smekinge gehoor toe ek U aangeroep het om hulp.

3. Al word 'n laer teen my opgeslaan, my hart sal nie vrees nie; al staan 'n oorlog teen my op, nogtans vertrou ek.

5. Want Hy steek my weg in Sy hut in die dag van onheil; Hy verberg my in die skuilplek van Sy tent; Hy verhef my op 'n rots.

7. Hoor O Here, ek roep luid; en wees my genadig en antwoord my.  
8. Van U sê my hart: "Soek My aangesig." Ek soek U aangesig, O Here!

13. O, as ek nie geglo het dat ek die goedheid van die Here sal sien in die land van die lewendes nie!
