A Psalm For Kyle Rittenhouse, To Be Repeated Now and Going Forward


PSALM 124 

1 If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, now may Israel say; 

If it had not been the Lord who was on our side, when men rose up against us:

Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

Then the proud waters had gone over our soul.

Blessed be the Lord, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.



While there is a collective sigh of  relief that Kyle was exonerated in the outcome of a trial that should never have been, this young man has many challenges in front of him.  His life will never be the same. This psalm should remind him, and us, that we survive now and always by the Grace of God.
