Tehillim / Psalms 138, ספר תהילים קלח, Part 1, New Life through the Messiah


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 138:1-8, the psalm opens א לְדָוִד | אוֹדְךָ בְכָל-לִבִּי נֶגֶד אֱלֹהִים אֲזַמְּרֶךָּ: ב אֶשְׁתַּחֲוֶה אֶל-הֵיכַל קָדְשְׁךָ וְאוֹדֶה אֶת-שְׁמֶךָ עַל-חַסְדְּךָ וְעַל-אֲמִתֶּךָ כִּי-הִגְדַּלְתָּ עַל-כָּל-שִׁמְךָ אִמְרָתֶךָ: 138:1 I will give You thanks with all my heart; I will sing praises to You before the gods. 138:2 I will bow down toward Your holy temple And give thanks to Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth; For You have magnified Your word according to all Your name. (NASB) We praise the Lord for all that He has done in keeping His words and His promises. The Psalmist continues saying, ג בְּיוֹם קָרָאתִי וַתַּעֲנֵנִי תַּרְהִבֵנִי בְנַפְשִׁי עֹז: ד יוֹדוּךָ יְהֹוָה כָּל-מַלְכֵי-אָרֶץ כִּי שָׁמְעוּ אִמְרֵי-פִיךָ: ה וְיָשִׁירוּ בְּדַרְכֵי יְהֹוָה כִּי גָדוֹל כְּבוֹד יְהֹוָה: 138:3 On the day I called, You answered me; You made me bold with strength in my soul. 138:4 All the kings of the earth will give thanks to You, O Lord, When they have heard the words of Your mouth. 138:5 And they will sing of the ways of the Lord, For great is the glory of the Lord. (NASB) It is interesting how the nations who do not have concern for the Word of the Lord, the Psalmist states they will give thanks when hearing His word.  Read more here: Tehillim 138-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.
