Tobit Canticle

On Tuesday Week I at Morning Prayer, we take our Old Testament canticle from Tobit 13. A couple lines seemed especially appropriate today, given all the vengeful-God discussions I've been having lately.

I'm not sure what translation our psalm book uses, but I especially love the middle snippet and its phrasing (but I'll put the couple verses that fit the blogging):

Once God punished you
because you did wrong.
Now God comforts all of you
and gathers you from the nations
where you have been scattered.

When you turn
and give all you are to God,
God turns,
never again to leave you.


Turn, sinners;
do justice before God.
God may yet respond
with pardon and delight.
Peace out, folks.
