Welcome back my friends,
Welcome to the study of Psalms audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Our Summary – The book of psalms is not narrative (story). It is poetry and so there are few connections between the psalms. One of the ways in which the book is divided up is into 5 'general' sections:
Part 1: 1-41 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Part 2: 42-72 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Part 3: 73-89 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Part 4: 90-106 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Part 5: 107-150audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Let us get down to the verbatim posts of each Psalm, with notes from Matthew Henry, 1710 for more edification.
Now continuing from:
Reading 'Verbatim', the Books of the Old Testament - 'the Psalms' - Introduction; Bi-Monthly, SMWF, March 7, 2021; and ongoing.
This week, SMWF, April 4,5,7,9 2021, let us study prayerfully Psalm Chapters 14-17, verbatim.
In such times as we are in, 2021, [ESTHER 4:14; 2 TIMOTHY 3], these 'Psalms' may have some of the most important information and warning, like never before. Please take your time, prayerfully, before the Lord. Do not leave, without 'searching your heart' with Him, seeing exactly and precisely what He will have to say for and to you, personally. THEN, WITHOUT DELAY - OBEY!! audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Chapter 14 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
What awesome words to close out this 'season' of 'Easter and the Resurrection', as well as the end of 'Passover', 2021. Amen. Amen.
1 '(To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
5 There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.'
'A description of the depravity of human nature, and the deplorable corruption of a great part of mankind.
- The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. The sinner here described is an atheist, one that saith there is no Judge or Governor of the world, no Providence ruling over the affairs of men. He says this in his heart. He cannot satisfy himself that there is none, but wishes there were none, and pleases himself that it is possible there may be none; he is willing to think there is none. [Now you know the biblical definition of - a fool.]
This sinner is a fool; he is simple and unwise, and this is evidence of it: he is wicked and profane, and this is the cause. The word of God is a discerner of these thoughts. No man will say, There is no God, till he is so hardened in sin, that it is become his interest that there should be none to call him to an account.
The disease of sin has infected the whole race of mankind. They are all gone aside, there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Whatever good is in any of the children of men, or is done by them, it is not of themselves, it is God's work in them. They are gone aside from the right way of their duty, the way that leads to happiness, and are turned into the paths of the destroyer. Let us lament the corruption of our nature, and see what need we have of the grace of God: let us not marvel that we are told we must be born again. And we must not rest in any thing short of union with Christ, and a new creation to holiness by his Spirit.
The psalmist endeavours to convince sinners of the evil and danger of their way, while they think themselves very wise, and good, and safe. Their wickedness is described. Those that care not for God's people, for God's poor, care not for God himself.
People run into all manner of wickedness, because they do not call upon God for his grace. What good can be expected from those that live without prayer? But those that will not fear God, may be made to fear at the shaking of a leaf. [Notice all the artificial 'boundaries' by many who are scared to death because of their evil way??? God knows their hearts.]
If we have any reason to be grateful, it is that all our knowledge of the depravity of human nature should endear to us salvation out of Zion. But in heaven alone shall the whole company of the redeemed rejoice fully, and for evermore.
The world is bad; oh that the Messiah would come and change its character! There is universal corruption; oh for the times of reformation! The triumphs of Zion's King will be the joys of Zion's children.
The second coming of Christ, finally to do away the dominion of sin and Satan, will be the completing of this salvation, which is the hope, and will be the joy of every Israelite indeed. With this assurance we should comfort ourselves and one another, under the sins of sinners and sufferings of saints.' Amen. Amen.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.
As we study all Holy Bible Scripture, let us all answer the question, the most important reason for studying God's Word - 'Am I here? Oh, Lord, search my heart and make me clean with this truth and condition in me, as you purify me more and more, in Jesus Name, I pray. Amen. Amen'.
For we must each ever remember that in the end, it is still true - we are to Take up Your Cross: for
…35 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and for the gospel will save it. 36 What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? 37 Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?… [Mark 8:35-37] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
This my friends, is why we pray through anything, yes, everything.!! Amen. Amen.
What a God we have as our 'Father'; LORD, SAVIOR, MASTER and EVERYTHING in between!! Amen. Amen.
