And they offered great sacrifices that day and rejoiced, for God had made them rejoice with great joy; the women and children also rejoiced. And the joy of Jerusalem was heard far away. (Nehemiah 12:43 ESV)
В тот день они принесли великие жертвы и радовались, потому что Бог даровал им великую радость. Женщины и дети тоже радовались. Крики радости в Иерусалиме были слышны далеко вокруг. (Неемия 12:43 Russian NRT)
O LORD my God in whose word we solidly trust for eternal guidance. Hear the prayers of your children dear Heavenly Father. Open our mouths and fill our lungs with songs of praise that will tell the world how much we love and adore our Lord and King, Christ Jesus. Grant wisdom to leaders in all churches of your people, so that they will do everything possible to restore public singing of joyful and heartfelt praises so that no one ever doubts the sincerity of our faith in you and our love. Shame those who are ashamed to give Christ the highest praise from our hearts and lips! In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
