Psalm 29; Job 39:26—40:5; John 14:25-26
(Revised Common Lectionary Year A)

Praise the glory of God
1  Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
     ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2  Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
     worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.

3  The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
     the God of glory thunders,
     the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
4  The voice of the Lord is powerful;
     the voice of the Lord is majestic.
5  The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
     the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
6  He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
     Sirion like a young wild ox.
7  The voice of the Lord strikes
     with flashes of lightning.
8  The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
     the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
9  The voice of the Lord twists the oaks
     and strips the forests bare.
   And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”

10 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
     the Lord is enthroned as King forever.
11 The Lord gives strength to his people;
     the Lord blesses his people with peace.

Creation story from Job; Job’s response
39:26 “Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom
     and spread its wings toward the south?
27 Does the eagle soar at your command
     and build its nest on high?
28 It dwells on a cliff and stays there at night;
     a rocky crag is its stronghold.
29 From there it looks for food;
     its eyes detect it from afar.
30 Its young ones feast on blood,
     and where the slain are, there it is.”

40:1 The Lord said to Job:

2  “Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him?
    Let him who accuses God answer him!”

3  Then Job answered the Lord:

4  “I am unworthy—how can I reply to you?
    I put my hand over my mouth.
5  I spoke once, but I have no answer—
    twice, but I will say no more.”

Father Son Spirit
14:25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.
