Tehillim / Psalms 22, Part 1, A Psalm of Messianic Expectations


This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 22:1-31, the Psalm is introduced saying א   לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל-אַיֶּלֶת הַשַּׁחַר מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד: For the choir director; upon Aijeleth Hashshahar. A Psalm of David. The first distinctive verse of the psalm states ב   אֵלִי אֵלִי לָמָה עֲזַבְתָּנִי רָחוֹק מִישׁוּעָתִי דִּבְרֵי שַׁאֲגָתִי:  22:1 My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning. (NASB) reminding us of Yeshua’s words while on the cross in Matthew 27:45-46 and Mark 15:34.  David continues saying ג   אֱלֹהַי אֶקְרָא יוֹמָם וְלֹא תַעֲנֶה וְלַיְלָה וְלֹא-דוּמִיָּה לִי: ד   וְאַתָּה קָדוֹשׁ יוֹשֵׁב תְּהִלּוֹת יִשְֹרָאֵל: ה   בְּךָ בָּטְחוּ אֲבֹתֵינוּ בָּטְחוּ וַתְּפַלְּטֵמוֹ: ו   אֵלֶיךָ זָעֲקוּ וְנִמְלָטוּ בְּךָ בָטְחוּ וְלֹא-בוֹשׁוּ: ז   וְאָנֹכִי תוֹלַעַת וְלֹא-אִישׁ חֶרְפַּת אָדָם וּבְזוּי עָם: ח   כָּל-רֹאַי יַלְעִגוּ לִי יַפְטִירוּ בְשָֹפָה יָנִיעוּ רֹאשׁ: 22:2 O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer; And by night, but I have no rest. 22:3 Yet You are holy, O You who are enthroned upon the praises of Israel. 22:4 In You our fathers trusted; They trusted and You delivered them. 22:5 To You they cried out and were delivered; In You they trusted and were not disappointed. 22:6 But I am a worm and not a man, A reproach of men and despised by the people. 22:7 All who see me sneer at me; They separate with the lip, they wag the head, saying, (NASB)  David proclaims that he is the Lord’s even from the womb and asks the Lord not to be far off when he calls (Tehillim / Psalms 22:8-11).

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.
