WFW: Psalm 138

October 7, 2009

WFW

I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods I will sing praises to You.

I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your lovingkindness and Your truth;

For You have magnified Your word above all Your name.

In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul.

All the kings of the earth shall praise You, O Lord, when they hear the words of Your mouth. Yes, they shall sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord.

Though the Lord is on high, yet He regards the lowly; but the proud He knows from afar.

Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.

The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;

Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands.

Psalm 138

    I especially like this excerpt;

    …”and Your right hand will save me.”…

    For who is it that sits at God’s right hand?

    Psa 110:1 [[A Psalm of David.]] The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.

  2. Jay Says:

    That is an excellent Psalm, especially this part:

    “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You will revive me; You will stretch out Your hand against the wrath of my enemies, and Your right hand will save me.”

    That Psalm really speaks for itself!

    I love Angrywhiteman’s comment! The right hand also signifies strength. What an excellent point: Jesus (Your right hand) will save me!!

    “Though I walk in the midst of trouble…” Even thought I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil (or harm) for You (Jesus) are with me!
