Tehillim / Psalms 136, ספר תהילים קל, Part 2, Suffering for the Sake of the Lord


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 136:1-26, The Lord is powerful and He has established Himself as such in the midst of the nations defeating those who come against His people and given what they own to His people. The Psalm concludes saying, כא וְנָתַן אַרְצָם לְנַחֲלָה כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ: כב נַחֲלָה לְיִשְֹרָאֵל עַבְדּוֹ כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ: כג שֶׁבְּשִׁפְלֵנוּ זָכַר-לָנוּ כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ: כד וַיִּפְרְקֵנוּ מִצָּרֵינוּ כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ: כה נֹתֵן לֶחֶם לְכָל-בָּשָֹר כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ: כו הוֹדוּ לְאֵל הַשָּׁמָיִם כִּי לְעוֹלָם חַסְדּוֹ: 136:21 And gave their land as a heritage, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, 136:22 Even a heritage to Israel His servant, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 136:23 Who remembered us in our low estate, For His lovingkindness is everlasting, 136:24 And has rescued us from our adversaries, For His lovingkindness is everlasting; 136:25 Who gives food to all flesh, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. 136:26 Give thanks to the God of heaven, For His lovingkindness is everlasting. (NASB) The mercies of God are eternal, this psalm declares the glory of God within the context of His mercy and grace. This is illustrated in how the Lord God Almighty provides food for both the righteous and the unrighteous which is reminiscent of what Yeshua said in Matthew 5:45.  Read more here:  Tehillim 136-Part1-and-2
