Tehillim / Psalms 111, ספר תהילים קיא, Part 2, Paul’s Argument for Gentile Inclusion

by

In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 111:1-10, David says the blessing comes in the form of, ה   טֶרֶף נָתַן לִירֵאָיו יִזְכֹּר לְעוֹלָם בְּרִיתוֹ: ו   כֹּחַ מַעֲשָֹיו הִגִּיד לְעַמּוֹ לָתֵת לָהֶם נַחֲלַת גּוֹיִם:   111:5 He has given food to those who fear Him; He will remember His covenant forever. 111:6 He has made known to His people the power of His works, In giving them the heritage of the nations. (NASB)  The food on our tables, the cloths on our back, the roof over our head, these are given as a blessing.  If you have these things, know for certain the Lord “has” blessed you greatly.  There are many today who do not have these things.  These things are coupled to, 111:7 The works of His hands are truth and justice; All His precepts are sure. 111:8 They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness. (NASB)  The Lord blesses in truth and justice.  What does this mean?  Can one live in sin and expect God’s blessing claiming to believe in Yeshua (Jesus) as their messiah?  The Psalm concludes saying, ז   מַעֲשֵֹי יָדָיו אֱמֶת וּמִשְׁפָּט נֶאֱמָנִים כָּל-פִּקּוּדָיו: ח   סְמוּכִים לָעַד לְעוֹלָם עֲשֹוּיִם בֶּאֱמֶת וְיָשָׁר: ט   פְּדוּת | שָׁלַח לְעַמּוֹ צִוָּה לְעוֹלָם בְּרִיתוֹ קָדוֹשׁ וְנוֹרָא שְׁמוֹ: י   רֵאשִׁית חָכְמָה | יִרְאַת יְהֹוָה שֵֹכֶל טוֹב לְכָל-עֹשֵֹיהֶם תְּהִלָּתוֹ עֹמֶדֶת לָעַד:   111:9 He has sent redemption to His people; He has ordained His covenant forever; Holy and awesome is His name. 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever. (NASB)  The Lord sent His redemption that is part of the covenant relationship.  Read more here: Tehillim 111-Part1-and-2
