Sermon Notes

Psalm 130

Psalm 1

1 How happy is the man

who does not follow the advice of the wicked

or take the path of sinners or join a group of mockers! 2 Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night.

3 He is like a tree planted beside streams of water that bears its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

4 The wicked are not like this;

instead, they are like chaff that the wind blows away. 5 Therefore the wicked will not survive the judgment, and sinners will not be in the community of the righteous.

6 For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to ruin.


Psalm 2

7 I will proclaim the Lord’s decree:

He said to me, “You are my son;

  today I have become your father.

8 Ask me,

  and I will make the nations your inheritance,

  the ends of the earth your possession.

9 You will break them with a rod of iron;

  you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”

10 Therefore, you kings, be wise;

  be warned, you rulers of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear

  and celebrate his rule with trembling.

12 Kiss his son, or he will be angry

  and your way will lead to your destruction,

for his wrath can flare up in a moment.

  Blessed are all who take refuge in him.


Psalm 130

A song of ascents. 

  1 Out of the depths I call to You, Yahweh! 

  2 Lord, listen to my voice; 

  let Your ears be attentive 

  to my cry for help. 

  3 Yahweh, if You considered sins, 

  Lord, who could stand? 

  4 But with You there is forgiveness, 

  so that You may be revered. 

5 I wait for Yahweh; I wait 

  and put my hope in His word. 

  6 I wait for the Lord 

  more than watchmen for the morning— 

  more than watchmen for the morning. 

  7 Israel, put your hope in the LORD. 

  For there is faithful love with the LORD, 

  and with Him is redemption in abundance. 

  8 And He will redeem Israel 

  from all its sins.

In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

2 He was with God in the beginning.

3 All things were created through Him,

and apart from Him not one thing was created

that has been created.


14 The Word became flesh

and took up residence among us.

We observed His glory,

the glory as the One and Only Son

from the Father,

full of grace and truth.



5 I wait for Yahweh; I wait 

  and put my hope in His son Jesus.
