God of revelation,
   we thank you that you are not a silent God,
   isolated from humanity,
   leaving us us to guess and speculate about the things that matter.
We pray for those who serve you by studying manuscripts and clarifying texts:
    for scholars and preachers who wrestle with the words of life
    for the building up of your Church;
    for linguistics, translators, and publishers
    who continue to serve the cause of your Gospel
    by making the Bible available to more and more people.

Lord, create in us a hunger for your Word,
    a thankfulness for your Gospel,
    and a faithfulness to your commands;
    through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The law of the Lord is perfect,
   refreshing the soul.
The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy,
   making wise the simple.
The precepts of the Lord are right,
   giving joy to the heart.
The commands of the Lord are radiant,
   giving light to the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is pure,
   enduring forever.
The decrees of the Lord are firm,
   and all of them are righteous.
They are more precious than gold,
   than much pure gold;
they are sweeter than honey,
   than honey from the honeycomb.
By them your servant is warned;
   in keeping them there is great reward.
