Year C, Proper 11, Psalm
Lord, who may dwell in your
who may abide
upon your holy hill?
Reflection on Psalm 15
by the Rev Wanda Copeland
The psalmist asks, "..who may abide on your holy hill?" We are here
reminded that many ancient people imagined God dwelling on the high places
of the world. Those who lived (abided) on the high places were, thus,
closer to God. Yet, we know that YHWH came to dwell among God's people
wherever they were. Whether wandering in the desert, settled in a
foreign land, or in the promised land, God went with them on their journey.
Therefore, wherever they were was holy, was sacred.
