Psalm 72

1 Give the king your judgement O God:
and your righteousness to the son of a king.

2 That he may judge your people rightly:
and the poor of the land with equity.

3 Let the mountains be laden with peace because of his righteousness:
and the hills also with prosperity for his people.

4 May he give justice to the poor among the people:
and rescue the children of the needy, and crush the oppressor.

5 May he live while the sun endures:
and while the moon gives light, throughout all generations.

6 May he come down like rain upon the new-mown fields:
and as showers that water the earth.

Meister Eckhart:

Apprehend God in all things,
for God is in all things.
Every single creature is full of God
and is a book about God.
Every creature is a word of God.
If I spent enough time with the tiniest creature —
even a caterpillar —
I would never have to prepare a sermon.
So full of God
is every creature.
