Season after Pentecost (Proper 18 [23]): The Psalm Passage – Waiting for the Lord God to act

Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the faithful.” (Psalm 149: 1)

Last week I was impressed with the match of the Old Testament passage to the Psalm passage. This week I do not have the same feeling of the two being well matched. It is true that in the Old Testament passage, the people of God were being told to get ready to leave Egypt, and that was probably good reason to rejoice. But there was a lot unknown about this – not the least of which was whether the Pharaoh WOULD allow them to leave; if killing the first born in all the families in Egypt would so sour the Pharaoh that he would let them go. Many unknowns.  .  .
