Lord’s Day 34, 2017


Moreover David was greatly distressed because the people spoke of stoning him, for all the people were embittered, each one because of his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the Lord his God.

—1 Samuel 30:6

XX. The Saint encouraging himself in the Lord his God. 1 Sam. xxx. 6.
Philip Doddridge (1702–1751)


Jehovah, ’tis a glorious Name:
Still pregnant with Delight;
It scatters round a chearful Beam,
To gild the darkest Night.

What tho’ our mortal Comforts fade,
And drop like with’ring Flowers?
Nor Time nor Death can break that Band,
Which makes Jehovah ours.

My Cares, I give you to the Wind,
And shake you off like Dust;
Well may I trust my All with him,
With whom my Soul I trust.

—Philip Doddridge, Hymns Founded on Various Texts in the Holy Scriptures (Salop, 1755).

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please don’t miss worshiping with your local congregation
if you can possibly help it.
But if you’re in need of a good sermon, try these.
