Tehillim / Psalms 147, ספר תהילים קמז, Part 1, The Word draws near so We can do Likewise


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 147:1-20, the psalm opens saying, א הַלְלוּיָהּ | כִּי-טוֹב זַמְּרָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ כִּי-נָעִים נָאוָה תְהִלָּה: ב בּוֹנֵה יְרוּשָׁלַם יְהֹוָה נִדְחֵי יִשְֹרָאֵל יְכַנֵּס: ג הָרוּפֵא לִשְׁבוּרֵי לֵב וּמְחַבֵּשׁ לְעַצְּבוֹתָם: ד מוֹנֶה מִסְפָּר לַכּוֹכָבִים לְכֻלָּם שֵׁמוֹת יִקְרָא: ה גָּדוֹל אֲדוֹנֵינוּ וְרַב-כֹּחַ לִתְבוּנָתוֹ אֵין מִסְפָּר: 147:1 Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; For it is pleasant and praise is becoming. 147:2 The Lord builds up Jerusalem; He gathers the outcasts of Israel. 147:3 He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds. 147:4 He counts the number of the stars; He gives names to all of them. 147:5 Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite. (NASB) This demonstrates the great love of God. In His Love, He raises up the afflicted (147:6), and He does justice against the wicked (147:6). We are told to sing to the Lord (147:7) who pours out His blessing upon the earth (147:8) He gives blessing to the beasts, to the righteous, and the unrighteous (147:9). The Psalmist states that the Lord does not delight in men taking matters into their own hands (i.e. God helps those who help themselves) (147:10)…

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.
