Tehillim / Psalms 126, ספר תהילים קכו, Part 1, Being handed over for destruction and the Gospel Message


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 126:1-6, the psalm opens saying, א שִׁיר הַמַּעֲלוֹת בְּשׁוּב יְהֹוָה אֶת-שִׁיבַת צִיּוֹן הָיִינוּ כְּחֹלְמִים: A Song of Ascents. 126:1 When the Lord brought back the captive ones of Zion, We were like those who dream. (NASB) When held captive, is it but a dream to long for deliverance? The Lord is powerful to overcome strongholds, and it does not matter who stands against us when we have the Lord God in heaven on our side. The psalmist states, ב אָז יִמָּלֵא שְֹחוֹק פִּינוּ וּלְשׁוֹנֵנוּ רִנָּה אָז יֹאמְרוּ בַגּוֹיִם הִגְדִּיל יְהֹוָה לַעֲשֹוֹת עִם-אֵלֶּה: 126:2 Then our mouth was filled with laughter And our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’ (NASB) This sounds like Devarim / Deuteronomy 4:7 For what great nation is there that has a god so near to it as is the LORD our God whenever we call on Him? (NASB) The Lord is great in His mercy to deliver His people. This brings great joy to His people, and is the meaning of the joy of the Lord.  Read more here: Tehillim 126-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.
