In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 95:1-11, the Psalm opens saying, א לְכוּ נְרַנְּנָה לַיהֹוָה נָרִיעָה לְצוּר יִשְׁעֵנוּ: 95:1 O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord, Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation. (NASB) The Lord is described as the rock of our salvation. What is it about the rock that saves? The Psalm continues saying, ב נְקַדְּמָה פָנָיו בְּתוֹדָה בִּזְמִרוֹת נָרִיעַ לוֹ: ג כִּי אֵל גָּדוֹל יְהֹוָה וּמֶלֶךְ גָּדוֹל עַל-כָּל-אֱלֹהִים: ד אֲשֶׁר בְּיָדוֹ מֶחְקְרֵי-אָרֶץ וְתוֹעֲפוֹת הָרִים לוֹ: 95:2 Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. 95:3 For the Lord is a great God And a great King above all gods, 95:4 In whose hand are the depths of the earth, The peaks of the mountains are His also. (NASB) The psalmist calls for us to come before the Lord and give thanks for all that He has done. His power as Lord over all is described as King who is above all gods. Does this statement give credence to the existence of other gods? The Lord is all powerful, drawing a parallel to His creation having power over all the earth, even to its depths.  Read more here:  Tehillim 95-Part1
