Who else has held the oceans in his hand?
Who has measured off the heavens with his fingers?
Who else knows the weight of the earth

And night to night reveals knowledge.
3There is no speech, nor are there words;
Their voice is not heard.
Praise to the Creator and Preserver.

Praise is becoming to the upright.

Let all the inhabitants of the
world stand in awe of Him.
Genesis 1 Genesis 1
6 And God said, “Let there be a vault
between the waters to separate water
from water.” 7 So God made the vault
and separated the water under the
vault from the water above it. And it
was so. 8 God called the vault “sky.”
And there was evening, and there was
morning—the second day.
9 And God said, “Let the water under
the sky be gathered to one place, and
let dry ground appear.” And it was so.
10 God called the dry ground “land,”
and the gathered waters he called
“seas.” And God saw that it was good.
The Creation of the World
1In the beginning, God created the
heavens and the earth. 2The earth was
without form and void, and darkness
was over the face of the deep. And the
Spirit of God was hovering over the face
of the waters.
3And God said, “Let there be light,” and
there was light. 4And God saw that the
light was good. And God separated the
light from the darkness. 5God called the
light Day, and the darkness he called
Night. And there was evening and there
was morning, the first day.

How Majestic Is Your Name
To the choirmaster: according to The
Gittith.a A Psalm of David.
1O LORD, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the
You have set your glory above the

you have established strength
because of your foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.
Psalm 8 Psalm 8
3When I look at your heavens, the
work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you
have set in place,
4what is man that you are mindful of
and the son of man that you care for
5Yet you have made him a little lower
than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and
6You have given him dominion over
the works of your hands;
Zacchaeus the Tax Collector
19 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing
through. 2 A man was there by the name
of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector
and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who
Jesus was, but because he was short he
could not see over the crowd. 4 So he ran
ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to
see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked
up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come
down immediately. I must stay at your
house today.” 6 So he came down at once
and welcomed him gladly.
7 All the people saw this and began to
mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of

the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I
give half of my possessions to the poor,
and if I have cheated anybody out of
anything, I will pay back four times the
9 Jesus said to him, “Today salvation
has come to this house, because this
man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For
the Son of Man came to seek and to
save the lost.”
