In this week’s study from Tehillim / Psalms 98:1-9, the Psalm opens saying, א מִזְמוֹר שִׁירוּ לַיהֹוָה | שִׁיר חָדָשׁ כִּי-נִפְלָאוֹת עָשָֹה הוֹשִׁיעָה-לּוֹ יְמִינוֹ וּזְרוֹעַ קָדְשׁוֹ: A psalm. 98:1 O sing to the Lord a new song, For He has done wonderful things, His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him. (NASB) The psalmist speaks of the right hand and the holy arm have gained the victory. What is meant by the right hand and the holy arm of God? Is the Messiah considered a part of these things, being seated at the right hand of God? The psalmist continues saying, ב הוֹדִיעַ יְהֹוָה יְשׁוּעָתוֹ לְעֵינֵי הַגּוֹיִם גִּלָּה צִדְקָתוֹ: ג זָכַר חַסְדּוֹ | וֶאֱמוּנָתוֹ לְבֵית יִשְֹרָאֵל רָאוּ כָל-אַפְסֵי-אָרֶץ אֵת יְשׁוּעַת אֱלֹהֵינוּ: 98:2 The Lord has made known His salvation; He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations. 98:3 He has remembered His lovingkindness and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. (NASB) The Lord making known His salvation, how did He do this? If we take the Torah perspective, the Lord revealed His power through the hand of Moshe, to deliver His people. He revealed his faithfulness how? What does it mean that He has remembered His lovingkindness and faithfulness? Could this be a reference to the covenant promises? What implications does this have for us as believers in the Messiah Yeshua today? Could the reference to the ends of the earth suggest the gospel message going to all nations?
