Tehillim / Psalms 138, ספר תהילים קלח, Part 2, New Life through the Messiah


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 138:1-8, the Psalmist states 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. The psalm concludes saying, ו כִּי-רָם יְהֹוָה וְשָׁפָל יִרְאֶה וְגָבֹהַּ מִמֶּרְחָק יְיֵדָע: ז אִם-אֵלֵךְ | בְּקֶרֶב צָרָה תְּחַיֵּנִי עַל אַף אֹיְבַי תִּשְׁלַח יָדֶךָ וְתוֹשִׁיעֵנִי יְמִינֶךָ: ח יְהֹוָה יִגְמֹר בַּעֲדִי יְהֹוָה חַסְדְּךָ לְעוֹלָם מַעֲשֵֹי יָדֶיךָ אַל-תֶּרֶף: 138:6 For though the Lord is exalted, Yet He regards the lowly, But the haughty He knows from afar. 138:7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, And Your right hand will save me. 138:8 The Lord will accomplish what concerns me; Your lovingkindness, O Lord, is everlasting; Do not forsake the works of Your hands.(NASB) Read more here:  Tehillim 138-Part1-and-2
