Tehillim / Psalms 118, ספר תהילים קיח, Part 2, Walking in the Mercy of God

by

In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 118:1-29, David says The Lord extinguishes the enemy as thorns in a fire (118:12), the Lord is his help (118:13).  He says, טו   קוֹל | רִנָּה וִישׁוּעָה בְּאָהֳלֵי צַדִּיקִים יְמִין יְהֹוָה עֹשָֹה חָיִל: טז   יְמִין יְהֹוָה רוֹמֵמָה יְמִין יְהֹוָה עֹשָֹה חָיִל: יז   לֹא אָמוּת כִּי-אֶחְיֶה וַאֲסַפֵּר מַעֲשֵֹי יָהּ:  118:14 The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation. 118:15 The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous; The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. 118:16 The right hand of the Lord is exalted; The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. 118:17 I will not die, but live, And tell of the works of the Lord. (NASB)  The Lord disciplines the ones he loves (118:18).  David speaks of the gates of the righteous and entering through them (118:19-20), and giving thanks because the Lord answers him (118:21).  Yeshua the Messiah uses Tehillim / Psalms 118:22-23 in reference to himself as the Messiah.  The psalmist conclude saying the following, כד   זֶה-הַיּוֹם עָשָֹה יְהֹוָה נָגִילָה וְנִשְֹמְחָה בוֹ: כה   אָנָּא יְהֹוָה הוֹשִׁיעָה נָּא אָנָּא יְהֹוָה הַצְלִיחָה נָּא: כו   בָּרוּךְ הַבָּא בְּשֵׁם יְהֹוָה בֵּרַכְנוּכֶם מִבֵּית יְהֹוָה: כז   אֵל | יְהֹוָה וַיָּאֶר לָנוּ אִסְרוּ-חַג בַּעֲבֹתִים עַד קַרְנוֹת הַמִּזְבֵּחַ: כח   אֵלִי אַתָּה וְאוֹדֶךָּ אֱלֹהַי אֲרוֹמְמֶךָּ: כט   הוֹדוּ לַיהֹוָה כִּי-טוֹב כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ:  118:24 This is the day which the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. 118:25 O Lord, do save, we beseech You; O Lord, we beseech You, do send prosperity! 118:26 Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord; We have blessed you from the house of the Lord. 118:27 The Lord is God, and He has given us light; Bind the festival sacrifice with cords to the horns of the altar. 118:28 You are my God, and I give thanks to You; You are my God, I extol You. 118:29 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting.
