Today's reading is the final part of Psalm 119, the long song about the richness and beauty of God's teaching in the holy scripture. It is a concluding plea for God to act in the world, righting the actions of evildoers -- especially those who harm people trying to keep the faith by following God's word. "Let your hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen your precepts. I long for your salvation, O Lord, and your law is my delight."
