Psalm 104:1-12 Pictured

Psalm 104  (nrsv)

 Bless the LORD, O my soul.

O LORD my God, you are very great.

You are clothed with honor and majesty,

 wrapped in light as with a garment.

You stretch out the heavens like a tent,

 you set the beams of your chambers on the waters,

you make the clouds your chariot,

you ride on the wings of the wind,

 you make the winds your messengers,

fire and flame your ministers.

 You set the earth on its foundations,

so that it shall never be shaken.

 You cover it with the deep as with a garment;

the waters stood above the mountains.

At your rebuke they flee;

at the sound of your thunder they take to flight.

 They rose up to the mountains, ran down to the valleys

to the place that you appointed for them.

You set a boundary that they may not pass,

so that they might not again cover the earth.

 You make springs gush forth in the valleys;

they flow between the hills,

 giving drink to every wild animal;

the wild asses quench their thirst.

 By the streams the birds of the air have their habitation;

they sing among the branches.

Christ is risen! Hell and all Hells are Conquered!

“For if indeed there were a God whose true nature – whose justice of sovereignty – were revealed in the death of a child or the derelictions of a soul or a predestined hell, then it would be no great transgression to think of him as a kind of malevolent or contemptible demiurge, and to hate him, and to deny him worship, and to seek a better God than he. But Christ has overthrown all those principalities that rule without justice and in defiance of charity, and has cast out the god of this world; and so we are free (even now, in this mortal body) from slavery to arbitrary power, from fear of hell’s dominion, and from any superstitious subservience to fate.” (David Bentley Hart, The Doors of the Sea, pgs. 91-92)
