Tehillim / Psalms 111, ספר תהילים קיא, Part 1, Paul’s Argument for Gentile Inclusion


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 111:1-10, the Psalm opens saying, א   הַלְלוּיָהּ | אוֹדֶה יְהֹוָה בְּכָל-לֵבָב בְּסוֹד יְשָׁרִים וְעֵדָה:   111:1 Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart, In the company of the upright and in the assembly. (NASB)  How joyful and significant is dwelling in the company of the upright?  Why does David say “in the company of the upright” and “in the assembly?”  What is the difference between the upright and the assembly?  He continues saying, ב   גְּדֹלִים מַעֲשֵֹי יְהֹוָה דְּרוּשִׁים לְכָל-חֶפְצֵיהֶם: ג   הוֹד-וְהָדָר פָּעֳלוֹ וְצִדְקָתוֹ עֹמֶדֶת לָעַד: ד   זֵכֶר עָשָֹה לְנִפְלְאֹתָיו חַנּוּן וְרַחוּם יְהֹוָה:   111:2 Great are the works of the Lord; They are studied by all who delight in them. 111:3 Splendid and majestic is His work, And His righteousness endures forever. 111:4 He has made His wonders to be remembered; The Lord is gracious and compassionate. (NASB)  In the Lord’s wonders, what is David focusing upon here?  David is not focusing upon the sign or the wonder of God, he is focusing upon the gracious compassion of God to forgive sin and bless His people.

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
