Tehillim / Psalms 65, Part 1, The Covenant and its importance


In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 65:1-13, the psalm opens saying, א  לַמְנַצֵּחַ מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד שִׁיר:  For the choir director. A Psalm of David. A Song.  He writes a song saying, ב  לְךָ דֻמִיָּה תְהִלָּה אֱלֹהִים בְּצִיּוֹן וּלְךָ יְשֻׁלַּם-נֶדֶר: ג  שֹׁמֵעַ תְּפִלָּה עָדֶיךָ כָּל-בָּשָֹר יָבֹאוּ:  65:1 There will be silence before You, and praise in Zion, O God, And to You the vow will be performed. 65:2 O You who hear prayer, To You all men come. (NASB)  This indicates that every mouth will be stopped before the Lord.  David continues saying, ד  דִּבְרֵי עֲוֹנֹת גָּבְרוּ מֶנִּי פְּשָׁעֵינוּ אַתָּה תְכַפְּרֵם: ה  אַשְׁרֵי | תִּבְחַר וּתְקָרֵב יִשְׁכֹּן חֲצֵרֶיךָ נִשְֹבְּעָה בְּטוֹב בֵּיתֶךָ קְדשׁ הֵיכָלֶךָ: 65:3 Iniquities prevail against me; As for our transgressions, You forgive them. 65:4 How blessed is the one whom You choose and bring near to You To dwell in Your courts. We will be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Your holy temple. (NASB)  Notice how David says blessed is the one the Lord chooses to draw near.  How much of our of our faith is our choice?

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.
