Psalm 26

Year B - Pentecost +19 or Energy to Witness 19

Psalm 26

There is a bit of the “methinks they doth protest too much” about this passage. Who amongst us “stands on level ground”? Always we are tilting it this way and that. Think about the gravitational field in space/time. Our gravity disrupts that which we take to be stable.

Altars of sacrifice are inherently bloody places. How, then, does one wash their hands in “innocence” if that simple word also carries “innocent blood” with it?

Is this the psalm of one who has been divorced or one who divorces? Where does the appeal for justification come from? A person who has been injured? A person who has done injury and now seeks assurance of not being injured?

Blessings on you where you stand. May you turn it into a place of blessing.
