Tehillim / Psalms 119, ספר תהילים קיט, Part 1, Do You Believe in Something that is Contrary to Scripture?


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 119:1-176. Tehillim / Psalm 119 shows us that the Word of God should take top priority in our lives and the importance of praise.  Looking at the Masoretic Text, Tehillim / Psalm 119 is divided in the sections based upon the 22 letters in the Hebrew alef-bet.  The first eight verses are grouped under the letter א (alef) the next eight verses under the letter ב (bet), etc.  The overall scheme found throughout Tehillim / Psalms 119 seems to be determined mostly by the alef-bet organization of the text.  Throughout Tehillim / Psalms 119, the word Torah (תורה) is used 25 times and is a reference to both the books of Moshe and to teaching or instruction of God.  The basic conclusion is that the Torah is not just for academic interest, but for obedience.  We will be going through forty verses at a time (five letters at a time) for each study.  Read more here:  Tehillim 119-Part1

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.
