(Week 20 of the year: Monday)
R. You forget the God who fathered you.
1. You forget the Rock who begot you,
unmindful now of the God who fathered you.
The Lord has seen this, and in his anger
cast off his sons and his daughters. (R.)
2. “I shall hide my face from them,” he says
“and see what becomes of them.
For they are a deceitful brood,
children with no loyalty in them. (R.)
3. “They have roused me to jealousy with what is no god,
they have angered me with their beings of nothing;
I, Then, will rouse them to jealousy with what is no people,
I will anger them with an empty-headed nation.” (R.)
Train me, Lord, to observe your law,
to keep it with my heart.
