Tehillim / Psalms 30, Part 1, I Dedicate my Life to You Lord


This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 30:1-12, the opening verse says א  מִזְמוֹר שִׁיר חֲנֻכַּת הַבַּיִת לְדָוִד: A Psalm; a Song at the Dedication of the House. A Psalm of David.  Did David write songs to be sung at the dedication of the Temple that Solomon would build for the Lord?  In David’s song he says ב  אֲרוֹמִמְךָ יְהֹוָה כִּי דִלִּיתָנִי וְלֹא-שִֹמַּחְתָּ אֹיְבַי לִי:  30:1 I will extol You, O Lord, for You have lifted me up, And have not let my enemies rejoice over me. (NASB)  His rejoicing before the Lord is because ג  יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהָי שִׁוַּעְתִּי אֵלֶיךָ וַתִּרְפָּאֵנִי:  30:2 O Lord my God, I cried to You for help, and You healed me. (NASB)  The Lord saved David from the pit, from the grave and kept him alive (ד  יְהוָה הֶעֱלִיתָ מִן-שְׁאוֹל נַפְשִׁי חִיִּיתַנִי מִיָּורְדִי- [מִיָּרְדִי] בוֹר: , 30:3 O Lord, You have brought up my soul from Sheol; You have kept me alive, that I would not go down to the pit. NASB ) David says we are to praise the Lord because of His mercy ה  זַמְּרוּ לַיהֹוָה חֲסִידָיו וְהוֹדוּ לְזֵכֶר קָדְשׁוֹ: ו  כִּי רֶגַע בְּאַפּוֹ חַיִּים בִּרְצוֹנוֹ בָּעֶרֶב יָלִין בֶּכִי וְלַבֹּקֶר רִנָּה: 30:4 Sing praise to the Lord, you His godly ones, And give thanks to His holy name. 30:5 For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

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.
