Isaiah writes a beautiful celebratory response to a time when 'the earth will be as full of the knowledge of ADONAI as water covering the sea.'
in this time of celebration, i would like to declare the same over our new year.
from Isaiah 12 in the Complete Jewish Bible.
" See! God is my salvation.
I am confident and unafraid;
for Yah ADONAI is my strength and my song,
and he has become my salvation!"
Then you will joyfully draw water
from the springs of salvation.
On that day you will say,
"Give thanks to ADONAI! Call on his name!
Make his deeds known among the peoples,
declare how exalted is his name.
Sing to ADONAI, for he has triumphed -
this is being made known throughout the earth.
Shout and sing for joy,
you who live in Tziyon;
for the Holy One of Israe'el
is with you in his greatness!"
i pray we will live the declaration of the Lord...
Peace be with you !
