Tehillim / Psalms 34, Part 1, Seeking Forgiveness from Moral Impurity


This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 34:1-22, the opening verses states א   לְדָוִד בְּשַׁנּוֹתוֹ אֶת-טַעְמוֹ לִפְנֵי אֲבִימֶלֶךְ וַיְגָרְשֵׁהוּ וַיֵּלַךְ: Of David. When he pretended to be insane before Abimelek, who drove him away, and he left. (NASB) providing the context for Tehillim / Psalms 34.  David praises the Lord saying ב   אֲבָרֲכָה אֶת-יְהֹוָה בְּכָל-עֵת תָּמִיד תְּהִלָּתוֹ בְּפִי: ג   בַּיהֹוָה תִּתְהַלֵּל נַפְשִׁי יִשְׁמְעוּ עֲנָוִים וְיִשְֹמָחוּ: ד   גַּדְּלוּ לַיהֹוָה אִתִּי וּנְרוֹמְמָה שְׁמוֹ יַחְדָּו: 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.  34:2 My soul will make its boast in the Lord; The humble will hear it and rejoice.  34:3 O magnify the Lord with me, And let us exalt His name together. (NASB)  He says the reason for the praise that he gives to the Lord is ה   דָּרַשְׁתִּי אֶת-יְהֹוָה וְעָנָנִי וּמִכָּל-מְגוּרוֹתַי הִצִּילָנִי: ו   הִבִּיטוּ אֵלָיו וְנָהָרוּ וּפְנֵיהֶם אַל-יֶחְפָּרוּ: ז   זֶה עָנִי קָרָא וַיהֹוָה שָׁמֵעַ וּמִכָּל-צָרוֹתָיו הוֹשִׁיעוֹ:  34:4 I sought the Lord, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.  34:5 They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces will never be ashamed.  34:6 This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him And saved him out of all his troubles. (NASB)  The kind of answer and deliverance is based upon the Lord encamping around those who fear Him (Tehillim / Psalms 34:7, ח   חֹנֶה מַלְאַךְ-יְהֹוָה סָבִיב לִירֵאָיו וַיְחַלְּצֵם:).

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.
