Author: Genie Theme: MARY'S SONG
Setting by Troy 1995
Luke 1:39 ...Mary got ready and hurried to a town in the hill country of Judea, where she entered Zechariah's home and greeted Elizabeth. When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit.
In a loud voice she exclaimed: "Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the child you will bear! But why am I so favored, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? As soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy. Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!"
Luke 1:46 And Mary said:
"My soul glorifies YAHWEH
My spirit rejoices in El my Savior,
for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant
From now on
All generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me--
Holy, Holy, Holy is his Name
His mercy extends to those who fear him,
from generation to generation.
(And through the ages)
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;
Those of proud heart he has scattered
He tears the rulers down from their [high] thrones
but Exalts the humble.
He has filled the hungry with good things - and sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to show mercy
to Abraham and his seed
(even as he promised to our fathers.")
My soul glorifies YAHWEH
My spirit rejoices in Elohim my Savior,
for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant hide notes
Deut. 31:24 After Moses finished writing in a book the words of this law from beginning to end,
Ps. 30:0 A psalm. A song. For the dedication of the temple. Of David.
I will exalt you, O LORD, for you lifted me out of the depths and did not let my enemies gloat over me.
O LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me.
O LORD, you brought me up from the grave; you spared me from going down into the pit.
Sing to the LORD, you saints of his; praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
When I felt secure, I said, "I will never be shaken."
O LORD, when you favored me, you made my mountain stand firm; but when you hid your face, I was dismayed.
To you, O LORD, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy:
"What gain is there in my destruction, in my going down into the pit? Will the dust praise you? Will it proclaim your faithfulness?
Hear, O LORD, and be merciful to me; O LORD, be my help."
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,
that my heart may sing to you and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give you thanks forever.
Moses' Song Deut 32
Deut. 31:25 he gave this command to the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the LORD:
Deut. 31:26 "Take this Book of the Law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the LORD your God. There it will remain as a witness against you.
Deut. 31:27 For I know how rebellious and stiff-necked you are. If you have been rebellious against the LORD while I am still alive and with you, how much more will you rebel after I die!
Deut. 31:28 Assemble before me all the elders of your tribes and all your officials, so that I can speak these words in their hearing and call heaven and earth to testify against them.
Deut. 31:29 For I know that after my death you are sure to become utterly corrupt and to turn from the way I have commanded you. In days to come, disaster will fall upon you because you will do evil in the sight of the LORD and provoke him to anger by what your hands have made."
Deut. 31:30 And Moses recited the words of this song from beginning to end in the hearing of the whole assembly of Israel:
Deut. 32:1 Listen, O heavens, and I will speak; hear, O earth, the words of my mouth.
Deut. 32:2 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
Deut. 32:3 I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
Deut. 32:4 He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
Deut. 32:5 They have acted corruptly toward him; to their shame they are no longer his children, but a warped and crooked generation.
Deut. 32:6 Is this the way you repay the LORD, O foolish and unwise people? Is he not your Father, your Creator, who made you and formed you?
Deut. 32:7 Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past. Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you.
Deut. 32:8 When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance, when he divided all mankind, he set up boundaries for the peoples according to the number of the sons of Israel.
Deut. 32:9 For the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.
Deut. 32:10 In a desert land he found him, in a barren and howling waste. He shielded him and cared for him; he guarded him as the apple of his eye,
Deut. 32:11 like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions.
Deut. 32:12 The LORD alone led him; no foreign god was with him.
Deut. 32:13 He made him ride on the heights of the land and fed him with the fruit of the fields. He nourished him with honey from the rock, and with oil from the flinty crag,
Deut. 32:14 with curds and milk from herd and flock and with fattened lambs and goats, with choice rams of Bashan and the finest kernels of wheat. You drank the foaming blood of the grape.
Deut. 32:15 Jeshurun grew fat and kicked; filled with food, he became heavy and sleek. He abandoned the God who made him and rejected the Rock his Savior.
Deut. 32:16 They made him jealous with their foreign gods and angered him with their detestable idols.
Deut. 32:17 They sacrificed to demons, which are not God-- gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your fathers did not fear.
Deut. 32:18 You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth.
Deut. 32:19 The LORD saw this and rejected them because he was angered by his sons and daughters.
Deut. 32:20 "I will hide my face from them," he said, "and see what their end will be; for they are a perverse generation, children who are unfaithful.
Deut. 32:21 They made me jealous by what is no god and angered me with their worthless idols. I will make them envious by those who are not a people; I will make them angry by a nation that has no understanding.
Deut. 32:22 For a fire has been kindled by my wrath, one that burns to the realm of death below. It will devour the earth and its harvests and set afire the foundations of the mountains.
Deut. 32:23 "I will heap calamities upon them and spend my arrows against them.
Deut. 32:24 I will send wasting famine against them, consuming pestilence and deadly plague; I will send against them the fangs of wild beasts, the venom of vipers that glide in the dust.
Deut. 32:25 In the street the sword will make them childless; in their homes terror will reign. Young men and young women will perish, infants and gray-haired men.
Deut. 32:26 I said I would scatter them and blot out their memory from mankind,
Deut. 32:27 but I dreaded the taunt of the enemy, lest the adversary misunderstand and say, `Our hand has triumphed; the LORD has not done all this.'"
Deut. 32:28 They are a nation without sense, there is no discernment in them.
Deut. 32:29 If only they were wise and would understand this and discern what their end will be!
Deut. 32:30 How could one man chase a thousand, or two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the LORD had given them up?
Deut. 32:31 For their rock is not like our Rock, as even our enemies concede.
Deut. 32:32 Their vine comes from the vine of Sodom and from the fields of Gomorrah. Their grapes are filled with poison, and their clusters with bitterness.
Deut. 32:33 Their wine is the venom of serpents, the deadly poison of cobras.
Deut. 32:34 "Have I not kept this in reserve and sealed it in my vaults?
Deut. 32:35 It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them."
Deut. 32:36 The LORD will judge his people and have compassion on his servants when he sees their strength is gone and no one is left, slave or free.
Deut. 32:37 He will say: "Now where are their gods, the rock they took refuge in,
Deut. 32:38 the gods who ate the fat of their sacrifices and drank the wine of their drink offerings? Let them rise up to help you! Let them give you shelter!
Deut. 32:39 "See now that I myself am He! There is no god besides me. I put to death and I bring to life, I have wounded and I will heal, and no one can deliver out of my hand.
Deut. 32:40 I lift my hand to heaven and declare: As surely as I live forever,
Deut. 32:41 when I sharpen my flashing sword and my hand grasps it in judgment, I will take vengeance on my adversaries and repay those who hate me.
Deut. 32:42 I will make my arrows drunk with blood, while my sword devours flesh: the blood of the slain and the captives, the heads of the enemy leaders."
David's SOng 2Sam. 22:2
He said: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer;
2Sam. 22:3 my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield and the horn of my salvation. He is my stronghold, my refuge and my savior-- from violent men you save me.
2Sam. 22:4 I call to the LORD, who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my enemies.
2Sam. 22:5 "The waves of death swirled about me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me.
2Sam. 22:6 The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me.
2Sam. 22:7 In my distress I called to the LORD; I called out to my God. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came to his ears.
2Sam. 22:8 "The earth trembled and quaked, the foundations of the heavens shook; they trembled because he was angry.
2Sam. 22:9 Smoke rose from his nostrils; consuming fire came from his mouth, burning coals blazed out of it.
2Sam. 22:10 He parted the heavens and came down; dark clouds were under his feet.
2Sam. 22:11 He mounted the cherubim and flew; he soared on the wings of the wind.
2Sam. 22:12 He made darkness his canopy around him-- the dark rain clouds of the sky.
2Sam. 22:13 Out of the brightness of his presence bolts of lightning blazed forth.
2Sam. 22:14 The LORD thundered from heaven; the voice of the Most High resounded.
2Sam. 22:15 He shot arrows and scattered [the enemies], bolts of lightning and routed them.
2Sam. 22:16 The valleys of the sea were exposed and the foundations of the earth laid bare at the rebuke of the LORD, at the blast of breath from his nostrils.
2Sam. 22:17 "He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters.
2Sam. 22:18 He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.
2Sam. 22:19 They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the LORD was my support.
2Sam. 22:20 He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.
2Sam. 22:21 "The LORD has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.
2Sam. 22:22 For I have kept the ways of the LORD; I have not done evil by turning from my God.
2Sam. 22:23 All his laws are before me; I have not turned away from his decrees.
2Sam. 22:24 I have been blameless before him and have kept myself from sin.
2Sam. 22:25 The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness, according to my cleanness in his sight.
2Sam. 22:26 "To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless,
2Sam. 22:27 to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the crooked you show yourself shrewd.
2Sam. 22:28 You save the humble, but your eyes are on the haughty to bring them low.
2Sam. 22:29 You are my lamp, O LORD; the LORD turns my darkness into light.
2Sam. 22:30 With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall.
2Sam. 22:31 "As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
2Sam. 22:32 For who is God besides the LORD? And who is the Rock except our God?
2Sam. 22:33 It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect.
2Sam. 22:34 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights.
2Sam. 22:35 He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze.
2Sam. 22:36 You give me your shield of victory; you stoop down to make me great.
2Sam. 22:37 You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.
2Sam. 22:38 "I pursued my enemies and crushed them; I did not turn back till they were destroyed.
2Sam. 22:39 I crushed them completely, and they could not rise; they fell beneath my feet.
2Sam. 22:40 You armed me with strength for battle; you made my adversaries bow at my feet.
2Sam. 22:41 You made my enemies turn their backs in flight, and I destroyed my foes.
2Sam. 22:42 They cried for help, but there was no one to save them-- to the LORD, but he did not answer.
2Sam. 22:43 I beat them as fine as the dust of the earth; I pounded and trampled them like mud in the streets.
2Sam. 22:44 "You have delivered me from the attacks of my people; you have preserved me as the head of nations. People I did not know are subject to me,
2Sam. 22:45 and foreigners come cringing to me; as soon as they hear me, they obey me.
2Sam. 22:46 They all lose heart; they come trembling from their strongholds.
2Sam. 22:47 "The LORD lives! Praise be to my Rock! Exalted be God, the Rock, my Savior!
2Sam. 22:48 He is the God who avenges me, who puts the nations under me,
2Sam. 22:49 who sets me free from my enemies. You exalted me above my foes; from violent men you rescued me.
2Sam. 22:50 Therefore I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations; I will sing praises to your name.
2Sam. 22:51 He gives his king great victories; he shows unfailing kindness to his anointed, to David and his descendants forever."
Isa. 26:1 In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah: We have a strong city; God makes salvation its walls and ramparts.
Isa. 26:2 Open the gates that the righteous nation may enter, the nation that keeps faith.
Isa. 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
Isa. 26:4 Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.
Isa. 26:5 He humbles those who dwell on high, he lays the lofty city low; he levels it to the ground and casts it down to the dust.
Isa. 26:6 Feet trample it down-- the feet of the oppressed, the footsteps of the poor.
Isa. 26:7 The path of the righteous is level; O upright One, you make the way of the righteous smooth.
Isa. 26:8 Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts.
Isa. 26:9 My soul yearns for you in the night; in the morning my spirit longs for you. When your judgments come upon the earth, the people of the world learn righteousness.
Isa. 26:10 Though grace is shown to the wicked, they do not learn righteousness; even in a land of uprightness they go on doing evil and regard not the majesty of the LORD.
Isa. 26:11 O LORD, your hand is lifted high, but they do not see it. Let them see your zeal for your people and be put to shame; let the fire reserved for your enemies consume them.
Isa. 26:12 LORD, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us.
Isa. 26:13 O LORD, our God, other lords besides you have ruled over us, but your name alone do we honor.
Isa. 26:14 They are now dead, they live no more; those departed spirits do not rise. You punished them and brought them to ruin; you wiped out all memory of them.
Isa. 26:15 You have enlarged the nation, O LORD; you have enlarged the nation. You have gained glory for yourself; you have extended all the borders of the land.
Isa. 26:16 LORD, they came to you in their distress; when you disciplined them, they could barely whisper a prayer.
Isa. 26:17 As a woman with child and about to give birth writhes and cries out in her pain, so were we in your presence, O LORD.
Isa. 26:18 We were with child, we writhed in pain, but we gave birth to wind. We have not brought salvation to the earth; we have not given birth to people of the world.
Isa. 26:19 But your dead will live; their bodies will rise. You who dwell in the dust, wake up and shout for joy. Your dew is like the dew of the morning; the earth will give birth to her dead.
Isa. 26:20 Go, my people, enter your rooms and shut the doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until his wrath has passed by.
Isa. 26:21 See, the LORD is coming out of his dwelling to punish the people of the earth for their sins. The earth will disclose the blood shed upon her; she will conceal her slain no longer.
Rev. 15:3 and sang the song of Moses the servant of God and the song of the Lamb:
"Great and marvelous are your deeds, Lord God Almighty. Just and true are your ways, King of the ages.
Rev. 15:4 Who will not fear you, O Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed."
