Host:

As it is written, "When you have eaten and are full, then you shall bless the LORD your God for the good land which He has given you."-(Deuteronomy 8:10)

We will fulfill this by a responsive reading of Psalm 103:1-5.

Host:

Bless the Lord, O my soul;

All:

And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

Host:

Bless the Lord, O my soul

All:

And forget not all His benefits:

Host:

Who forgives all your iniquities

All:

Who heals all your diseases,

Host:

Who redeems your life from destruction

All:

Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

Host:

Who satisfies your mouth with good things

All:

So that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

Host:

Tradionally, the third cup, the cup of redemption, is accociated with our Messiah Yehoshua. He mave been referring to this cup when he said, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood: do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me." (1 Corinthians 11:25)

As we were redeemed from slavery in Egypt by the blood of a lamb, so we were redeemed from the slavery of sin by the blood of our Messiah, Yehoshua.

All:

Refill glasses with wine or grape juice.

Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who creates the fruit of the vine.

Drink the cup in the reclining position (if possible):
