Psalm 138 A Bold Man’s Praise

Post by Kefa »

Psalm 138

I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee. I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul. All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth. Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD. Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. (Psalm 138, KJV).

Psalm 138
A Bold Man’s Praise

The Psalm is exhibiting all the
Fidelity, courage and decision
Of David the King of Israel,
The Prince of Psalmists.

David expresses zeal for God
And humility before him. He will
Be bold to confess the Lord to
Rulers, and yet bow down to him.

What does David praise God for?
He praises God for covenant love
And faithfulness before everyone;
The coming of the messiah.

In that day kings of the earth will
Bow down before the Lord Jesus.

…that at the name of Jesus every knee
should bow, in heaven and on earth… and
every tongue confess that Jesus Christ
is Lord to the glory of God the Father.”


David is concerned that the kings of
The earth will bow before the power
Of God, and praise him for who he is,
And for “his love(that) endures forever.”

(c) Rex H. Henderson 2003

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
