A Woman’s Words

The Bible, a book recorded in antiquity, has great regard for women. So much so, it records the words of women. Whole sermons, in fact.

Guess who.

Comment away. And don’t use your concordance!

You make me strong and happy, LORD.
You rescued me.
Now I can be glad and laugh at my enemies.
No other god is like you. We’re safer with you than on a high mountain.
I can tell those proud people,

“Stop your boasting! Nothing is hidden from the LORD, and he judges what we do.”

Our LORD, you break the bows of warriors, but you give strength to everyone who stumbles.
People who once had plenty to eat must now hire themselves out for only a piece of bread.
But you give the hungry more than enough to eat.
A woman did not have a child, and you gave her seven, but a woman who had many was left with none.
You take away life, and you give life.
You send people down to the world of the dead and bring them back again.
Our LORD, you are the one who makes us rich or poor.
You put some in high positions and bring disgrace on others.
You lift the poor and homeless out of the garbage dump and give them places of honor in royal palaces.
You set the world on foundations, and they belong to you.
You protect your loyal people, but everyone who is evil will die in darkness.
We cannot win a victory by our own strength.
Our LORD, those who attack you will be broken in pieces when you fight back with thunder from heaven.
You will judge the whole earth and give power and strength to your chosen king.
