Comfort in a psalm

Posted

In these turbulent and divisive political times I've found comfort and truth in Psalm 15 from Stephen Mitchell's "A Book of Psalms, Selected and Adapted from the Hebrew" (ISBN 0-06-092470-50):

"Lord, who can be trusted with power,

and who may act in your place?

Those with a passion for justice,

who speak the truth from their hearts:

Who have let go of selfish interests

and grown beyond their own lives:

Who see the wretched as their family

and the poor as their flesh and blood.

They alone are impartial

and worthy of the people's trust.

Their compassion lights up the whole earth,

and their kindness endures forever."

Stephen W. Rose,

Taos
