Sovereign Lord, there are many places in the Old Testament where the authors urge the Israelites to meditate on your commandments and avoid sinning. The book of Proverbs has much to say about avoiding wickedness, including, “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, but the prayer of the upright is acceptable to him. The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord, but he loves him who pursues righteousness,” and also, “If one turns away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer is an abomination. Whoever misleads the upright into an evil way will fall into his own pit, but the blameless will have a goodly inheritance.” Proverbs 15:8–9, 28:9–10 (ESV). The beginning of the first psalm expresses similar wisdom: “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:1–2 (ESV). Lord, we pray that you help us to diligently read the Bible daily and to understand it. We want to delight in the law of the Lord and meditate on it day and night. Amen.
