Readings from the Old Testament / Hebrew Scriptures
Many of the Scriptures speak of God’s faithfulness.
Remember that the LORD your God
is the only God and that he is faithful.
He will keep his covenant
and show his constant love
to a thousand generations
of those who love him
and obey his commands.
Obey the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart.
Remember the great things he has done for you.
1 Samuel 12.24
Because the LORD is righteous and good,
he teaches sinners the path they should follow.
He leads the humble in the right
way and teaches them his will.
With faithfulness and love he leads
all who keep his covenant and obey his commands.
LORD, your constant love reaches the heavens;
your faithfulness extends to the skies.
Your righteousness is towering like the mountains;
your justice is like the depths of the sea.
People and animals are in your care.
O LORD, I will always sing of your constant love;
I will proclaim your faithfulness forever.
I know that your love will last for all time,
that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky.
The LORD does not let us forget his wonderful actions;
he is kind and merciful. He provides food for those who
honor him; he never forgets his covenant.
In all he does he is faithful and just;
all his commands are dependable.
They last for all time;
they were given in truth and righteousness.
He set his people free
and made an eternal covenant with them.
Holy and mighty is he!
The LORD’s unfailing love and mercy still continue,
Fresh as the morning, as sure as the sunrise.
The LORD is all I have, and so in him I put my hope.
