for thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee

Psalms 5
[1] Give ear to my words, O LORD, consider my meditation.
[2] Hearken unto the voice of my cry, my King, and my God: for unto thee will I pray.
[3] My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.
[4] For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee.
[5] The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.
[6] Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing [lies]: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man.
[7] But as for me, I will come into thy house in the multitude of thy mercy: and in thy fear will I worship toward thy holy temple.
[8] Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.
[9] For there is no faithfulness in their mouth; their inward part is very wickedness; their throat is an open sepulchre; they flatter with their tongue.
[10] Destroy thou them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels; cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against thee.
[11] But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee.
[12] For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

It is in the natural flow 1:54 PM Saturday afternoon. It is a cold gray day here in West Michigan. I thought this morning it would be a sunny day, but the clouds have rolled in off Lake Michigan this afternoon. There is damp chill in the air this afternoon, typical late Autumn weather.

I volunteered at the Herrick District Public Library from 10 AM till 1 PM today. I brought home these used books from the book nook to ADD to our library that afternoon-

"Pilgrims" Stories by Elizabeth Gilbert

"Turn Right At Machu Piccu: Rediscovering the Lost City One Step at a Time" travel memoir by Mark Adams

"The Promise Rest" A Novel by Reynolds Price

"20th Century Ghosts" Short Stores by Joe Hill

"The Pope Who Quit: A True Medieval Tale Of Mystery, Death, And Salvation" biography by Jon M. Sweeney

"The Brothers Karamazov" novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (Translated By Constance Garnett) published in 1940 hardback edition Illustrated by Boardman Robinson

While at the library used books store when not helping people I read, "Other Colors: Essays And A Story" by Orhan Pamuk.

Once again weird dream drove me out of bed this morning around 5:52 AM, so right now I am feeling fried crisp. I might watch a college football game this afternoon at 3:30 PM. Existence keeps cooking. That reminds me I need to start preparing dinner so I can watch a college football undisturbed this evening.

Last night I mainly read late into the night the crime novel, "Strega" by Andrew Vachss. This morning I wrote in my diary and read two Old Testament commentaries on Psalm 5.

"My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue" Psalm 39:4
