Scripture Quote of the Day:

I have seen the wicked triumphant,

towering like a cedar of Lebanon.

I passed by again; he was gone.

I searched; he was nowhere to be found.

Psalm 37: 35-46

Psalm 37 is an interesting Psalm. In some translations you will find the Hebrew alphabet transliterated above each stanza. Essentially it is the ABC's of the problem of evil in the world. I have always been struck by this one verse which often has come to mind when the "great" of one day, seem to "disappear" the next. Often we can fixate on the apparent triumph of the evil doers, but it is only for a time.
