Daily Bible Reading – October 2021: God’s Word of Justice

Dag 1 van 31

October 1


Today’s reading is a psalm that is an intercessory prayer for the king. It includes petitions for the king’s righteous judgment, long life, and worldwide rule that is marked by justice.

Today’s Scripture Reading

Psalm 72

Today’s Key Verse: Psalm 72:1

Teach the king to judge with your righteousness, O God; share with him your own justice.


The petitions in this psalm read almost like a job description for one who is called to lead. What verses indicate how a leader should rule? Are any of these petitions relevant for leaders today? What petitions resonate most with you? Why? You may wish to compare Psalm 72 with the way the prophet Samuel had described the treatment the Israelites would receive from a king (see 1 Samuel 8:11-18). What differences can you identify?


Righteous and loving God, I will praise Your glorious Name forever. May all nations seek Your blessing, may Your justice flourish throughout the earth, and may Your glory fill the whole world. In the Name of Jesus, I pray. Amen.
