Tehillim / Psalms 150, ספר תהילים קנ, Part 1, God’s Excellence and His Praises


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 150:1-6, the psalm opens saying א הַלְלוּיָהּ | הַלְלוּ-אֵל בְּקָדְשׁוֹ הַלְלוּהוּ בִּרְקִיעַ עֻזּוֹ: 150:1 Praise the Lord! Praise God in His sanctuary; Praise Him in His mighty expanse. (NASB) When the psalmists speaks of praising God in His sanctuary, is he referring to the earthly sanctuary or the heavenly sanctuary? The reference to the mighty expanse, is this to all of the universe? The psalmist continues saying, ב הַלְלוּהוּ בִּגְבוּרֹתָיו הַלְלוּהוּ כְּרֹב גֻּדְּלוֹ: 150:2 Praise Him for His mighty deeds; Praise Him according to His excellent greatness. (NASB) The great deeds the Lord is praised for, are these a reference to His miracles, to his creation, or to the way he works in our lives?

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.
