Bonus Reading, Psalms

The Dedication of God's Temple  

Today's reading is a song that is identified as begin sung at the dedication of the Temple.  After thanking God for deliverance, it is mostly a song of praise.  Ultimately, it recognizes that God has taken bad things and turned them into good things -- "turned mourning into dancing" and "sackcloth...into joy."

Read Psalm 30  (NIV)   (NRSV)   (CEB)
