In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 88:1-17, the Psalm opens saying, A Maskil of Ethan the Ezrahite. Who is Ethan the Ezahite? The Psalm continues saying, 89:1 I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever; To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth. 89:2 For I have said, ‘Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In the heavens You will establish Your faithfulness.’ (NASB) What does it mean lovingkindness will be built up forever? How does the Lord establish faithfulness in the heavens? The Lord speaks prophetically though the psalmist saying, 89:3 ‘I have made a covenant with My chosen; I have sworn to David My servant, 89:4 I will establish your seed forever And build up your throne to all generations.’ Selah. (NASB) Why did the Lord make a covenant with David? The psalmist continues saying, 89:15 How blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! O Lord, they walk in the light of Your countenance. 89:16 In Your name they rejoice all the day, And by Your righteousness they are exalted. (NASB) What is the joyful sound? How does the Lord’s righteousness exalt the children of Israel? The psalm continues saying, 89:17 For You are the glory of their strength, And by Your favor our horn is exalted. 89:18 For our shield belongs to the Lord, And our king to the Holy One of Israel. 89:19 Once You spoke in vision to Your godly ones, And said, ‘I have given help to one who is mighty; I have exalted one chosen from the people. (NASB) What vision did the Lord speak unto the godly ones? Read more here: Tehillim 98-Part1A

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.
