Today, in between the Gospel of John and the Gospel of Matthew we read two Psalms and two chapters of Exodus.
Psalm 7 is a shiggaion, a dithyrambic ode of David. I would love to hear what the music to this Psalm sounded like.
Psalm 8 on the other hand has been set to music many times. Even I have sung it many times, both as a choir number, and the first verse as an introit. Looking for the music I found a far better, free rendition of the Psalm, this one by Marty Goetz.
Exodus 3 is where God revealed Himself to Moses in the form of a burning bush and declared “I am that I am”. Jesus makes a similar declaration in John 8:58 “Before Abraham, I am”.
In Exodus 4 God gave Moses his call. At first Moses cames up with one objection after another, but God persuaded him with signs that he must go back to Egypt, face Pharaoh and lead his people.
