The Psalms are basically poetry set to music. There are several types of psalms and are authored by at least six people. David wrote about 73.

There are Psalms of instruction, prophecy, pleas for mercy, pleas for wrath on the wicked, and ones of penitence that ask for forgiveness.


There are 150 Psalms (Dead Sea Scrolls list 151).

David wrote 73.

Asaph, one of David's chief musicians wrote 12.   Psalm 50, 73-83.

10 are assigned to the 'Sons of Korah', a Levitical family with duties in the Temple, including doorkeeper, a position of some honor and dignity.   Psalm 42, 44-49, 84, 85, 87.

2 are stated to be a Psalm (or song) for Solomon.  Psalm 72 and 127.

1 is entitled 'a Prayer of Moses, the man of Yahweh'.   Psalm 90.


The title 'Psalms' in Hebrew literally means 'Praises' but the Greek title is 'Psalmos' meaning 'songs set to musical accompaniments'.

Psalms were intended for use in both public and private worship of the children of Jacob.


The book of Psalms is divided into 5 books of an unequal number of Psalms. Each such 'book' ends in a kind of 'Hallelujah'.

Book I      Psalms 1-41

Book II     Psalms 42-72

Book III    Psalms 73-89

Book IV    Psalms 90-106

Book V     Psalms 107-150


'Amen' signifies in Hebrew 'sure and certain' and has the same meaning as our Prince Yahshua's 'verily, verily' (or, 'truly, truly').

The entire collection was entitled 'Psalms' and was referred to as such by Yahshua: 'All things must be fulfilled which were written in the law of Moses, and in the Prophets and in the Psalms, concerning Me.'


The Psalms have four main themes.

Communion with Yahweh (Devotional). Prayers, praises and thanksgivings. (ex. Psa 5, 8, 103)

Principles of Truth (Instructional). (ex. Psa 1, 19, 82, 119, 149)

Faith in Experience (Historical). Yahweh's dealings in past days with His people. (ex. Psa 44)

Faith looking into the future (Prophetical). (ex. Psa 25:14, Psa 22, 69)


The words in parenthesis are the original or closest to the original Hebrew. The KJV has many mistakes, some innocent, and many deliberate. The KJV generalizes many words in scripture that can mislead and change the meanings.



Book I   Psalms 1-41

Psalm 1:1  Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

The Hebrew reads: 1  Happy is the man that does not follow the advice of the wicked, or continue in the manner of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scoffers.

Septuagint ends with: '...and has not sat in the seat of evil men.'

 1:2  But his delight is in the law (torah) of Yahweh; and in His law (torah) doth he meditate day and night.

 1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Jeremiah 17:8  For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

 1:4  The ungodly (wicked) are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

 1:5  Therefore the ungodly (wicked) shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

 1:6  For Yahweh knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Hebrew: 6  Because Yahweh watches over the manner of the righteous: but the manner of the wicked shall be destroyed.



Psalm 2:1  Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

Hebrew: 1  Why do the nations rage, and the people ponder a worthless thing?

 2:2  The kings of the earth (land) set themselves (take a stand), and the rulers take counsel together, against Yahweh, and against His anointed, saying,

Acts 4:25-26

25  Who by the mouth of our father David your servant through the Holy Spirit hast said, Why did the nations rage, and the peoples practice vanities?

26  The kings of the land made a stand, and the rulers were gathered together against Yahweh, and against His Anointed.

Anointed is mashiyach. It could mean David, the seed of Jacob, a king or high priest, or Christ.

 2:3  Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

 2:4  He that sitteth (dwells) in the heavens (skies) shall laugh: Yahweh shall have them in derision.

 2:5  Then shall He speak unto them in His wrath, and vex them in His sore displeasure.

Verse 5 ends as: “...and make them fear in His burning anger.”

 2:6  Yet have I set My king upon My holy hill of Zion.

 2:7  I will declare the decree: Yahweh hath said unto me, You art My Son; this day have I begotten you.

Acts 13:33  God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children, in that He hath raised up Jesus again; as it is also written in the second psalm, You art My Son, this day have I begotten You.

Hebrews 1:5  For unto which of the messengers said He at any time, You art My Son, this day have I begotten You? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He shall be to Me a Son?

5:5  So also Christ glorified not Himself to be made an high priest; but He that said unto Him, You art My Son, to day have I begotten You.

 2:8  Ask of Me, and I shall give you the heathen (nations) for your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth (land) for your possession.

 2:9  You shalt break them with a rod of iron; you shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Revelation 2:26-27

26  And he that overcometh, and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:

27  And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of My Father.

12:5  And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne.

19:5  And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you His servants, and you that fear Him, both small and great.

 2:10  Be wise now therefore, O you kings: be instructed, you judges of the earth (land).

 2:11  Serve Yahweh with fear, and rejoice (cringe) with trembling.

 2:12  Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed (Happy) are all they that put their trust (take refuge) in Him.

Septuagint: Psalm 2:12  Accept correction, lest at any time Yahweh be angry, and you should perish from the righteous way: whensoever His wrath shall be suddenly kindled, blessed are all they that trust in Him.



Psalm 3:1  A Psalm of David, when he fled from Absalom his son. YAHWEH, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me.

Absalom had many people that backed him.

 3:2  Many there be which say of my soul, There is no help for him in God. Selah.

Selah is a musical rest, a pause.

 3:3  But You, O YAHWEH, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.

 3:4  I cried unto Yahweh with my voice, and He heard (answered) me out of His holy hill. Selah.

 3:5  I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for Yahweh sustained me.

 3:6  I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people, that have set themselves against me round about.

 3:7  Arise, O YAHWEH; save me, O my God: for You hast smitten all mine (hated) enemies upon the cheek bone; You hast broken the teeth of the ungodly (wicked).

Enemies is emphasized with the word hated (oyeb oyeb).

 3:8  Salvation (Victory) belongeth unto Yahweh: Your blessing is upon Your people. Selah.



Psalm 4:1  To the chief Musician on Neginoth (Stringed Instruments), A Psalm of David. Hear (Answer) me when I call, O God of my righteousness: You hast enlarged me when I was in distress; have mercy upon me, and hear (consider) my prayer.

The first hear is anah, answer or respond. The second hear is shama, understand, consider.

 4:2  O you sons of men, how long will you turn my glory (honor) into shame (dishonor)? how long will you love vanity (worthlessness), and seek after leasing (falsehood)? Selah.

 4:3  But know that Yahweh hath set apart him that is godly (faithful) for Himself: Yahweh will hear when I call unto Him.

 4:4  Stand in awe, and sin not: commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.

Ephesians 4:26  Be you angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

 4:5  Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust (seek refuge) in Yahweh.

 4:6  There be many that say, Who will shew us any good? YAHWEH, lift You up the light of Your countenance upon us.

 4:7  You hast put gladness in my heart, more than in the time that their corn and their wine increased.

 4:8  I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for You, YAHWEH, only makest me dwell in safety.

This was an evening prayer of trust in Yahweh.



Psalm 5:1  To the chief Musician upon Nehiloth (Flutes), A Psalm of David. Give ear to my words, O YAHWEH, consider my meditation (complaint).

Hagiyg means complaint or murmuring.

 5:2  Hearken (Hear and respond) unto the voice of my cry (for help), my King, and my God: for unto You will I pray.

 5:3  My voice shalt You hear in the morning, O YAHWEH; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto You, and will look up.

 5:4  For You art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with You.

 5:5  The foolish (boastful) shall not stand in Your sight: You hatest all workers of iniquity.

 5:6  You shalt destroy them that speak leasing (falsehood): Yahweh will abhor the bloody (bloodthirsty) and deceitful man.

 5:7  But as for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude (abundance) of Your mercy: and in Your fear (in reverence) will I worship (prostrate myself) toward Your holy temple.

 5:8  Lead me, O YAHWEH, in Your righteousness because of mine enemies; make Your way straight before my face.

 5:9  For there is no faithfulness (sincerity) in their mouth; their inward part (their heart) is very wickedness (destruction); their throat is an open sepulchre (grave); they flatter with their tongue.

Romans 3:13  Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

 5:10  Destroy (Punish) You them, O God; let them fall by their own counsels (devices); cast them out in the multitude of their transgressions; for they have rebelled against You.

 5:11  But let all those that put their trust in You (flee to You for protection) rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because You defendest (protect) them: let them also that love Your name be joyful (exult) in You.

 5:12  For You, YAHWEH, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt You compass him as with a shield.



Psalm 6:1  To the chief Musician on Neginoth (Stringed Instruments) upon Sheminith (Eight stringed lyre), A Psalm of David. O YAHWEH, rebuke (punish) me not in Your anger, neither chasten me in Your hot displeasure (anger).

 6:2  Have mercy upon me, O YAHWEH; for I am weak: O YAHWEH, heal me; for my bones are vexed (tremble in fear).

 6:3  My soul is also sore vexed (trembling in fear): but You, O YAHWEH, how long?

 6:4  Return, O YAHWEH, deliver (strengthen) my soul: oh save me for Your mercies' sake.

 6:5  For in death there is no remembrance of You: in the grave who shall give You thanks (worship)?

 6:6  I am weary with my groaning (sighing); all the night make I my bed to swim (flood); I water my couch with my tears.

 6:7  Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies (adversaries).

 6:8  Depart from me, all you workers of iniquity; for Yahweh hath heard the voice of my weeping.

Matthew 7:23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity.

 6:9  Yahweh hath heard my supplication (request for favor); Yahweh will receive my prayer.

 6:10  Let all mine (hated) enemies be ashamed (put to shame) and sore vexed (and tremble in fear): let them return and be ashamed suddenly.



Psalm 7:1  Shiggaion (A Rambling Poem) of David, which he sang unto Yahweh, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite. O YAHWEH my God, in You do I put my trust (seek refuge): save me from all them that persecute (pursue) me, and deliver me:

 7:2  Lest he tear my soul (life) like a lion, rending it in pieces, while there is none to deliver.

 7:3  O YAHWEH my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity (evil) in my hands;

 7:4  If I have rewarded (dealt) evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy:) (yea, I have plundered my adversary undeservedly)

 7:5  Let the (hated) enemy persecute my soul (life), and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth (ground), and lay mine honour in the dust. Selah.

 7:6  Arise, O YAHWEH, in Your anger, lift up Yourself because of the rage of mine enemies: and awake for me to the judgment that You hast commanded.

 7:7  So shall the congregation of the people compass You about: for their sakes therefore return You on high (return to Your exalted place).

 7:8  Yahweh shall judge the people: judge me, O YAHWEH, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity (innocence) that is in me.

 7:9  Oh let the wickedness of the wicked come to an end; but establish the just: for the righteous (just) God trieth (examines) the hearts and reins (minds).

Revelation 2:23  And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches (assemblies) shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

 7:10  My defence (protector) is of God, which saveth (defends) the upright (just) in heart.

 7:11  God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry (has indignation) with the wicked every day.

Verses 12-13 are speaking of Yahweh.

 7:12  If he (the wicked) turn not, He (Yahweh) will whet His sword; He hath bent His bow, and made it ready.

 7:13  He hath also prepared for Him the instruments (weapons) of death; He ordaineth His arrows against the persecutors.

 7:14  Behold, he (the wicked) travaileth (destroys) with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood (given birth to lies).

 7:15  He (the wicked) made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch (trap) which he made.

 7:16  His mischief (wickedness) shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate (head).

3Maccabees 6:21  They turned back the animals upon the armed forces which followed them; and the animals trod them down, and destroyed them.

 7:17  I will praise (worship with extended hands) Yahweh according to His righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of Yahweh most high.

This Psalm was written while David was being pursued by Saul, and David was defending himself from accusations by Cush.



Psalm 8:1  To the chief Musician upon Gittith (A Gittite harp), A Psalm of David. O YAHWEH our Soveriegn, how excellent is Your name in all the earth (land)! who hast set Your glory above the heavens (skies).

 8:2  Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast You ordained (founded) strength because of Your enemies, that You mightest still (put an end to) the (hated) enemy and the avenger (one who takes revenge).

Matthew 21:16  And said unto Him, Hearest You what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings You hast perfected praise?

 8:3  When I consider Your heavens (skies), the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You hast ordained (set in place);

 8:4  What is man, that You art mindful of (think about) him? and the son of man, that You visitest (care for) him?

Man is mortal, H582 (enosh). Son of man is Adam, H120 (awdawm).

The difference between mortals and the seed of Adam is evident.

Job 7:17-18

17  What is man (H582), that Thou shouldest magnify him? and that Thou shouldest set Thine heart upon him?

18  And that Thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

Hebrews 2:6-7

6  But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that Thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that Thou visitest him?

7  Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; Thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of Thy hands:

2:8  Thou hast put all things in subjection under His feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is not put under Him. But now we see not yet all things put under Him.

 8:5  For You hast made him a little lower than the angels (divine beings, messengers- elohiym), and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

Wisdom 2:23  For God created man to be immortal, and made him to be an image of His own eternity.

Sirach 17:1-4

1  Yahweh created man of the earth, and turned him into it again.

2  He gave them few days, and a short time, and power also over the things therein.

3  He endued them with strength by themselves, and made them according to His image,

4  And put the fear of man upon all flesh, and gave him dominion over beasts and fowls.

 8:6  You madest him to have dominion (reign) over the works of Your hands; You hast put all things under his feet:

Genesis 1:26  And God said, Let us make man (H120 adam- the species) in our image, after our likeness: and let them (the race of Adam) have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

1Corinthians 15:27-28  For He hath put all things under His feet. Now until it may be said that it is evident that all things have been subjected, (because outside of the subjecting of all tings to Himself and until all things are in subjection to Him,) then also the Son Himself will be subjected in the subjecting of all things to Himself, in order that Yahweh may be all things among all.  (Eph 1:22; Heb 2:8)

 8:7  All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;

 8:8  The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.

 8:9  O YAHWEH our Sovereign, how excellent is Your name in all the earth (lands)!



Psalm 9:1  To the chief Musician upon Muthlabben (The death of the son), A Psalm of David. I will praise (worship) You, (with extended hands) O YAHWEH, with my whole heart; I will shew forth (recount) all Your marvellous works.

 9:2  I will be glad and rejoice (exult) in You: I will sing praise to Your name, O You most High.

 9:3  When mine (hated) enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at Your presence.

There are enemies of kin, and enemies of other races, these are emphasized with the word hated, oyeb oyeb. We are to love our enemies of kin.

 9:4  For You hast maintained my right and my cause (judgment); You satest in the throne judging right.

 9:5  You hast rebuked the heathen (nations), You hast destroyed the wicked, You hast put out their name for ever and ever.

 9:6  O you enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and you hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.

Hebrew: 6  O you hated enemy, your ruination has finally been completed: and your cities are destroyed; their memory has perished with them.

 9:7  But Yahweh shall endure for ever: He hath prepared His throne for judgment.

 9:8  And He shall judge the world in righteousness, He shall minister judgment to the people in uprightness.

Hebrew: 8  And He shall judge the world with justice, and He shall minister judgment to the people in just government.

 9:9  Yahweh also will be a (place of) refuge for the oppressed, a (place of) refuge in times of trouble.

 9:10  And they that know Your name will put their trust in You: for You, YAHWEH, hast not forsaken them that seek You.

 9:11  Sing praises to Yahweh, which dwelleth in Zion (metaphor for Israel): declare among the people His doings.

Not the place Israel, rather the people. Not the Jews, who are the sons of Cain and of Esau, rather the Israelites, the sons of Jacob, who are the white nations of the world.

 9:12  When He maketh inquisition for blood (bloodshed), He remembereth them: He forgetteth not the cry of the humble.

 9:13  Have mercy upon me, O YAHWEH; consider my trouble (affliction) which I suffer of them that hate me, You that liftest me up from the gates of death:

Wisdom 16:13  For Thou hast power of life and death: Thou leadest to the gates of hell, and bringest up again.

3Maccabees 5:51  sent up an exceeding great cry entreating Yahweh of all power to reveal Himself, and have mercy upon those who now lay at the gates of hades.

 9:14  That I may shew forth (recount) all Your praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion (metaphor for Jerusalem): I will rejoice in Your salvation.

 9:15  The heathen (nations) are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.   (3Mac 6:21)

 9:16  Yahweh is known by the judgment which He executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion (Meditate). Selah.

 9:17  The wicked shall be turned (returned) into hell (the grave-sheol), and all the nations that forget God.

Turned comes from H7725, meaning to return, turn back.

 9:18  For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.

 9:19  Arise, O YAHWEH; let not man (mortals) prevail: let the heathen (nations) be judged in Your sight (presence).

 9:20  Put them in fear, O YAHWEH: that the nations may know themselves to be but men (mortals). Selah.

Mortals are differentiated. They are NOT Adamic seed.



Psalm 10:1  Why standest You afar off, O YAHWEH? why hidest You Yourself in times of trouble?

 10:2  The wicked in his pride (arrogance) doth persecute (pursues) the poor: let them be taken (captured) in the devices (schemes) that they have imagined (devised).

 10:3  For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom Yahweh abhorreth.

 10:4  The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts (God is not in all his plans).

 10:5  His ways are always grievous; Your judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth (snorts in contempt) at them.

 10:6  He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity (evil circumstances).

 10:7  His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud (oppression): under his tongue is mischief and vanity.

Romans 3:14  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

 10:8  He sitteth in the lurking (hiding) places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily (secretly) set against the poor (helpless).

 10:9  He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net.

 10:10  He croucheth, and humbleth himself (bows down), that the poor (helpless) may fall by his strong ones.

 10:11  He hath said in his heart, God hath forgotten: He hideth His face; He will never see it.

 10:12  Arise, O YAHWEH; O God, lift up your hand: forget not the humble.

 10:13  Wherefore doth the wicked contemn (scorn) God? he hath said in his heart, You wilt not require it.

The Hebrew has blood where the KJV decided to put it.

 10:14  You hast seen it; for You beholdest mischief and spite (provocation), to requite it with Your hand: the poor (helpless) committeth himself unto You; You art the helper of the fatherless.

Committeth should read abandons. The helpless abandons himself to You (meaning Yahweh).

 10:15  Break You the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till You find none.

 10:16  Yahweh is King for ever and ever: the heathen (nations) are perished out of His land.

 10:17  YAHWEH, You hast heard the desire of the humble: You wilt prepare their heart, You wilt cause your ear to hear (listen carefully):

 10:18  To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man (mortals) of the earth (land) may no more oppress (strike with dread).



Psalm 11:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. In Yahweh put I my trust (take refuge): how say you to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?

 11:2  For, lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart.

The Hebrew has “ that they may shoot in darkness at the upright in heart.”

The KJV left out H652, ophel, which means darkness.

 11:3  If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?

H8356 is a metaphor for the foundations of righteousness.

 11:4  Yahweh is in His holy temple, Yahweh's throne is in heaven (the sky): His eyes behold, His eyelids try, the children of men.

The Hebrew ends as: “...His eyes see, His watchful eyes examine the children of Adam.”

 11:5  Yahweh trieth (tests) the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth.

 11:6  Upon the wicked He shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest (burning hot wind): this shall be the portion of their cup.

Cup of judgment for the wicked.

 11:7  For the righteous YAHWEH loveth righteousness; His countenance doth behold (sees) the upright.



Psalm 12:1  To the chief Musician upon Sheminith (8 stringed lyre), A Psalm of David. Help, YAHWEH; for the godly (pious) man ceaseth (fails); for the faithful fail (vanish) from among the children of men (Adam).

 12:2  They speak vanity every one with his neighbour: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak.

 12:3  Yahweh shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things:

 12:4  Who have said, With our tongue will we prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us?

 12:5  For the oppression (robbery) of the poor, for the sighing (groaning) of the needy, now will I arise, saith Yahweh; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth (snorts) at him.

 12:6  The words of Yahweh are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.

 12:7  You shalt keep (guard) them, O YAHWEH, You shalt preserve them from this generation (age) for ever.

 12:8  The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men (sons of Adam) are exalted.



Psalm 13:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. How long wilt You forget me, O YAHWEH? for ever? how long wilt You hide Your face from me?

 13:2  How long shall I take counsel (lay plans) in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine (hated) enemy be exalted over me?

 13:3  Consider and hear (answer) me, O YAHWEH my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death;

 13:4  Lest mine (hated) enemy say, I have prevailed against him; and those that trouble (oppress) me rejoice when I am moved (forced into a bad position).

 13:5  But I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation.

 13:6  I will sing unto Yahweh, because He hath dealt bountifully with me.



Psalm 14:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The fool (wicked) hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

 14:2  Yahweh looked down from heaven (the sky) upon the children of men (Adam), to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

 14:3  They are all gone aside, they are all together become (morally) filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Romans 3:10-12

10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

 14:4  Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon Yahweh.

 14:5  There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

 14:6  Ye have shamed the counsel (plans) of the poor, because Yahweh is his refuge.

 14:7  Oh that the salvation (deliverance) of Israel were come out of Zion! 14:8  when Yahweh bringeth back the captivity of His people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

The Hebrew has “...restores the prosperity of His people...”



Psalm 15:1  A Psalm of David. YAHWEH, who shall abide in Your tabernacle (tent)? who shall dwell in Your holy hill?

 15:2  He that walketh uprightly, and worketh (performs) righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

 15:3  He that backbiteth (slander) not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach (scorn) against his neighbour.

 15:4  In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear Yahweh. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

Hebrew: 4  In whose eyes a rejector of God is despised; but he honors those that revere Yahweh. He that swears to an oath even to his hurt, and does not change his mind.

 15:5  He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward (bribes) against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.



Psalm 16 foretold the resurrection of Yahshua Christ.

Psalm 16:1  Michtam (Poem) of David. Preserve (Protect) me, O God: for in You do I put my trust (take refuge).

 16:2  O my soul, you hast said unto Yahweh, You art my Sovereign: my goodness (benevolence) extendeth not to You;

The Hebrew reads: 2  I have said to Yahweh, You are Yahweh: my good is from You.

 16:3  But to the saints (holy ones) that are in the earth (land), and to the excellent (rulers), in whom is all my delight.

 16:4  Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer (pour out an offering), nor take up their names into my lips.

 16:5  Yahweh is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: You maintainest (support) my lot (portion).

 16:6  The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

Hebrew: 6  The companions fallen to me are pleasing; yes, I have a good inheritance.

 16:7  I will bless Yahweh, who hath given me counsel: my reins (conscience) also instructs me in the night seasons.

 16:8  I have set Yahweh always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

 16:9  Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh (body) also shall rest (dwell) in hope (security).

 16:10  For You wilt not leave my soul in hell (the grave); neither wilt You suffer your Holy One to see corruption (the pit of destruction).

Christ did not rot, His body did not see corruption.

Acts 13:35  Wherefore he saith also in another psalm, Thou shalt not suffer your Holy One to see corruption.

Hell is the land of the dead, the grave.

The Hebrew has pit of destruction where the KJV has corruption. Pit of destruction is closer to the hell concept. Corruption is what gets you there.

 16:11  You wilt shew me (make me to know) the path of life: in Your presence is fulness of joy; at Your right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Acts 2:25-28

25  For David speaketh concerning Him, I foresaw Yahweh always before my face, for He is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

26  Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

27  Because you wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt you suffer your Holy One to see corruption.

28  Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; you shalt make me full of joy with your countenance.



Psalm 17:1  A Prayer of David. Hear the right (a just cause), O YAHWEH, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer, that goeth not out of feigned (deceitful) lips.

 17:2  Let my sentence come forth from Your presence; let Your eyes behold the things that are equal (justly).

 17:3  You hast proved mine heart; You hast visited me in the night; You hast tried (tested) me, and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.

 17:4  Concerning the works of men (Adam), by the word of Your lips I have kept me from the paths of the destroyer.

Hebrew ends as “...I have kept from the ways of the violent.”

 17:5  Hold up my goings (steps- manner of life) in Your paths (of righteousness), that my footsteps slip not.

 17:6  I have called upon You, for You wilt hear (answer) me, O God: incline Your ear unto me, and hear my speech.

 17:7  Shew Your marvellous lovingkindness, O You that savest by Your right hand them which put their trust (take refuge) in You from those that rise up against them.

 17:8  Keep (Watch over) me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of Your wings,

H380 pupil of the eye and H1323 daughter of the eye.

 17:9  From the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly (hated) enemies, who compass me about.

 17:10  They are inclosed in their own fat: with their mouth they speak proudly.

Their own fat is figuratively their prosperity.  Speak proudly is figuratively boasting in their arrogance.

 17:11  They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down (stretching out) to the earth (on the land);

 17:12  Like as a lion that is greedy of (longs to tear) his prey, and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places (in ambush).

 17:13  Arise, O YAHWEH, disappoint (confront) him (by Your presence), cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is Your sword:

 17:14  From men which are Your hand, O YAHWEH, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life, and whose belly You fillest with Your hid treasure: they are full of children, and leave the rest of their substance to their babes.

 17:15  As for me, I will behold Your face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with Your likeness.

The apple of the eye is both pupil and daughter in Hebrew. Both were precious and were to be protected. In verse 5 David asks for Yahweh to guide him in the righteous path of life, and to keep him from backsliding. This ties with verses 9 and 10, where he is surrounded by enemies waiting for a sign of unrighteousness on David's part. They were ready to make their accusations, and were sure in their own arrogance and prosperity. They were ready to tear him like a young lion stretched out watching for weakness with their eyes set on David. Verse 13 refers to them as Yahweh's sword, as Yahweh sometimes uses the wicked to punish transgressions by His chosen ones. Verse 14 refers to men that only have this life's rewards, and nothing coming in the afterlife, and David says when he awakes (from death) he will be satisfied to be in Yahweh's presence.



Psalm 18:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of Yahweh, who spake unto Yahweh the words of this song in the day that Yahweh delivered him from the hand of all his (hated) enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, I will love You, O YAHWEH, my strength.

 18:2  Yahweh is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength (rock), in whom I will trust (take refuge); my buckler (shield), and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

 18:3  I will call upon Yahweh, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine (hated) enemies.

 18:4  The sorrows (cords) of death compassed (entangled) me, and the floods of ungodly (worthless) men made me afraid.

 18:5  The sorrows (cords) of hell (the grave) compassed me about: the snares of death prevented (confronted) me.

 18:6  In my distress I called upon Yahweh, and cried unto my God: He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry came before Him, even into His ears.

 18:7  Then the earth (land) shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and were shaken, because He was wroth (burned with anger).

 18:8  There went up a smoke out of His nostrils, and fire out of His mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it.

 18:9  He bowed the heavens (sky) also, and came down: and darkness (dark clouds) was under His feet.

 18:10  And He rode upon a cherub, and did fly: yea, He did fly upon the wings of the wind.

 18:11  He made darkness His secret place; his pavilion (booth) round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.

 18:12  At the brightness that was before Him His thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire.

 18:13  Yahweh also thundered in the heavens (skies), and the Highest gave His voice; hail stones and coals of fire.

 18:14  Yea, He sent out His arrows, and scattered them; and He shot out lightnings, and discomfited (confused) them.

 18:15  Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at Your rebuke, O YAHWEH, at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.

 18:16  He sent from above, He took me, He drew me out of many waters.

 18:17  He delivered me from my strong (hated) enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me.

 18:18  They prevented (confronted) me in the day of my calamity: but Yahweh was my stay (support).

 18:19  He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because He delighted in me.

 18:20  Yahweh rewarded me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands hath He recompensed me.

 18:21  For I have kept the ways of Yahweh, and have not wickedly departed from my God.

 18:22  For all His judgments were before me, and I did not put away His statutes from me.

 18:23  I was also upright before Him, and I kept myself from mine iniquity.

 18:24  Therefore hath Yahweh recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in His eyesight.

 18:25  With the merciful You wilt shew Yourself merciful (loyal); with an upright (blameless) man You wilt shew Yourself upright;

 18:26  With the pure You wilt shew Yourself pure; and with the froward (perverse) You wilt shew Yourself froward (shrewd).

The first froward is H6141, iqqesh. The second froward is H6617 pathal.

 18:27  For You wilt save the afflicted people; but wilt bring down high looks (exalted opinions).

 18:28  For You wilt light my candle (lamp): Yahweh my God will enlighten my darkness.

Darkness is choshek, meaning ignorance or spiritual darkness.

 18:29  For by You I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

2Samuel 22:30  For by You I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

 18:30  As for God, His way is perfect: the word of Yahweh is tried (tested): He is a buckler (shield) to all those that trust (take refuge) in Him.

 18:31  For who is God save Yahweh? or who is a rock save our God?

 18:32  It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

 18:33  He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places.

Habakkuk 3:19  Yahweh God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds' feet, and He will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments.

 18:34  He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel (bronze) is broken (bent) by mine arms.

 18:35  You hast also given me the shield of Your salvation: and Your right hand hath holden me up, and Your gentleness hath made me great.

 18:36  You hast enlarged my steps under me, that my feet did not slip (from the paths of righteousness).

 18:37  I have pursued mine (hated) enemies, and overtaken them: neither did I turn again till they were consumed.

 18:38  I have wounded them that they were not able to rise: they are fallen under my feet.

 18:39  For You hast girded me with strength unto the battle: You hast subdued under me those that rose up against me.

 18:40  You hast also given me the necks of mine (hated) enemies; that I might destroy them that hate me.

 18:41  They cried, but there was none to save them: even unto Yahweh, but He answered them not.

 18:42  Then did I beat them small as the dust before the wind: I did cast them out as the dirt in the streets.

 18:43  You hast delivered me from the strivings of the people; and You hast made me the head of the heathen (nations): a people whom I have not known shall serve me.

 18:44  As soon as they hear of me, they shall obey me: the strangers (racial aliens) shall submit themselves unto me.

Strangers is nekar, sons of foreigners.

 18:45  The strangers (sons of foreigners) shall fade away, and be afraid out of their close places (fortresses).

 18:46  Yahweh liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted.

 18:47  It is God that avengeth me, and subdueth the people under me.

 18:48  He delivereth me from mine (hated) enemies: yea, You liftest me up above those that rise up against me: You hast delivered me from the violent man.

 18:49  Therefore will I give thanks unto You, O YAHWEH, among the heathen (nations), and sing praises unto Your name.

Romans 15:9  And that the Nations might glorify God for His mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to You among the Nations, and sing unto Your name.

 18:50  Great deliverance giveth He to His king; and sheweth mercy to His anointed, to David, and to his seed (offspring) for evermore.



Psalm 19:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens (skies) declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork.

 19:2  Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

 19:3  There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

 19:4  Their line is gone out through all the earth (land), and their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle (tent) for the sun,

 19:5  Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

Line in verse 4 is a measuring line.

 19:6  His going forth is from the end of the heaven (the sky), and his circuit (course) unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof.

 19:7  The law of Yahweh is perfect, converting (restoring) the soul: the testimony of Yahweh is sure (established), making wise the simple.

 19:8  The statutes of Yahweh are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of Yahweh is pure, enlightening the eyes.

 19:9  The fear of Yahweh is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of Yahweh are true and righteous altogether.

 19:10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and (the drippings of) the honeycomb.

 19:11  Moreover by them is Your servant warned (taught): and in keeping of them there is great reward.

 19:12  Who can understand his errors? cleanse You me from secret (hidden) faults.

 19:13  Keep back Your servant also from presumptuous (arrogant) sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright (complete), and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

 19:14  Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in Your sight, O YAHWEH, my strength (rock), and my redeemer.

The context is the glory of Yahweh and His Word and Promise.

In verse 2, speech is from H562 omer, meaning, promise, speech, thing, word.

Day unto day the word spoken by Yahweh shows His glory.

The word for night is from H3915 layil eyl laylah, meaning night; figuratively adversity.

Yahweh's promise shows His word when He preserves us through adversity.

In verse 3, there is no promise or matter of His word where their (His word) proclamation is not heard.

Proclamation is, publication by authority; official notice given to the public; a declaration of the King's (Yahweh's) will, openly published.

In verse 4, Their line (His word) is gone out everywhere. In them (His promises) He set (charged, committed, purposed, showed) a temple (body) for the sun (Christ).

Yahweh's word (plan) was to redeem His people of promise and purpose through coming to die as a man so that we may be remarried through Christ, whom He foretold His people from Genesis to Malachi. The NT is the continuation and fulfillment of the OT.

In verse 5, Which (Christ, the sun) as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber and rejoices as a strong (warrior, champion, valiant) man to run (break down, divide speedily, guard, bring hastily) a race (a well trodden road, manner, path, race, rank, troop, way).

Christ will be returning as an avenger. Vengeance is Yahweh's.

He will come quickly and divide speedily. And guard His elect bride.

He will break down and put an end to the well trodden road society is on, and the paths and ways of unrighteousness, and uproot the high rank of our enemies.

In verse 6, nothing is hid from His eyes and His burning fire.

Verse 7 shows that the law is perfect, turning back the soul from certain death.

In verse 8, the statutes (mandates) of Yahweh are right (just). They keep the mind bright.

The commandments are pure (beloved, clear, clean, choice) enlightening the eyes (countenance, thinking, humble, knowledge, favor).

Verses 9-11 teach us to revere Yahweh, and that His judgments (verdict) is righteous and desirable. They warn us and in observing them there is great reward.

Verses 12-13 show that we cannot be perfect, because we commit sins we are not even aware that we do. But it is a good idea to ask for forgiveness for them as well.

Verse 14 closes with the prayer that the effort and sincerity honors our Kinsman Redeemer.

Redeemer: from H1350 ga'al

A primitive root, to redeem (according to the law of kinship), that is, to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relatives property, marry his widow, etc.): -    X in any wise, X at all, avenger, deliver, (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk (-man), purchase, ransom, redeem (-er), revenger.



Psalm 20:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Yahweh hear (answer) you in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend you;

 20:2  Send you help from the sanctuary, and strengthen you out of Zion;

 20:3  Remember all your offerings, and accept (anoint) your burnt sacrifice; Selah.

 20:4  Grant you according to your own heart, and fulfil all your counsel (petitions).

 20:5  We will rejoice in your salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: Yahweh fulfil all your petitions.

 20:6  Now know I that Yahweh saveth His anointed; He will hear (answer) him from His holy heaven (sky) with the saving strength of His right hand.

His anointed refers to David, and it can also mean to His anointed people Israel.

 20:7  Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of Yahweh our God.

 20:8  They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright (bear witness).

 20:9  Save, YAHWEH: let the king hear (answer) us when we call.

This is a Psalm of absolute trust in Yahweh to give victory.



Psalm 21:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The king shall joy in Your strength, O YAHWEH; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!

 21:2  You hast given him his heart's desire, and hast not withholden the request of his lips. Selah.

 21:3  For You preventest (go before) him with the blessings of goodness: You settest a crown of pure gold on his head.

 21:4  He asked life of You, and You gavest it him, even length of days for ever and ever.

 21:5  His glory is great in Your salvation: honour (authority) and majesty hast You laid upon him.

 21:6  For You hast made him most blessed for ever: You hast made him exceeding glad with Your countenance (presence).

 21:7  For the king trusteth in Yahweh, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.

 21:8  Your hand shall find out all Your (hated) enemies: Your right hand shall find out those that hate You.

 21:9  You shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of Your anger (presence): Yahweh shall swallow them up in His wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

 21:10  Their fruit (of their loins) shalt you destroy from the earth (land), and their seed from among the children of men (Adam).

 21:11  For they intended evil  against You: they imagined (devised) a mischievous device (evil schemes), which they are not able to perform (succeed).

 21:12  Therefore shalt You make them turn their back, when You shalt make ready your arrows upon Your strings against the face of them.

 21:13  Be You exalted, YAHWEH, in Your own strength: so will we sing and praise Your power.

The hated enemies of verse 10 will be burned up. Read the book of Obadiah for the fate of the Edomite Jews.



Psalm 22:1  To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar (Hind (Doe) of the Dawn), A Psalm of David. My God, my God, why hast You forsaken me? why art You so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

 22:2  O my God, I cry in the daytime, but You hearest (answer) not; and in the night season, and am not silent (do not rest).

 22:3  But You art holy, O You that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

 22:4  Our fathers trusted in You: they trusted, and You didst deliver them.

 22:5  They cried unto You, and were delivered: they trusted in You, and were not confounded (put to shame).

3Maccabees 2:12  And when You didst often aid our fathers when hard pressed, and in low estate, and deliveredst them out of great dangers,

 22:6  But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men (Adam), and despised of the people.

 22:7  All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

 22:8  He trusted on Yahweh that He would deliver him: let Him deliver him, seeing He delighted in him.

3Maccabees 6:11  Let not the vain-minded congratulate vain idols at the destruction of your beloved, saying, Neither did their god deliver them.

 22:9  But You art He that took me out of the womb: You didst make me hope (secure) when I was upon my mother's breasts.

 22:10  I was cast upon You from the womb: You art my God from my mother's belly.

 22:11  Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

 22:12  Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

Bulls is figurative for leaders. Strong bulls is young leaders.

 22:13  They gaped (opened wide) upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

 22:14  I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels (inner being).

 22:15  My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws (palate); and You hast brought me into the dust of death.

 22:16  For (hunting) dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

David was a 'type' of Christ.

 22:17  I may tell (count) all my bones: they look and stare (reflect) upon me.

 22:18  They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Matthew 27:35  And they crucified Him, and parted His garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted My garments among them, and upon My vesture did they cast lots.

 22:19  But be not You far from me, O YAHWEH: O my strength, haste You to help me.

 22:20  Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling (only life) from the power of the dog.

 22:21  Save me from the lion's mouth: for You hast heard (answered) me from the horns of the unicorns (wild ox).

 22:22  I will declare Your name unto my brethren (blood kindred): in the midst of the congregation will I praise You.   (Heb 2:12)

 22:23  Ye that fear Yahweh, praise Him; all you the seed of Jacob, glorify Him; and fear (sojourn with) Him, all you the seed of Israel.

 22:24  For He hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath He hid His face from him; but when he cried unto Him, He heard.

 22:25  My praise shall be of You in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear Him.

 22:26  The meek (humble) shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise Yahweh that seek Him: your heart shall live for ever.

 22:27  All the ends of the world (land) shall remember and turn unto Yahweh: and all the (blood) kindreds of the (Israel) nations shall worship before You.

 22:28  For the kingdom is Yahweh's: and He is the governor (ruler) among the nations.

 22:29  All they that be fat (prosperous) upon earth (land) shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust (those who die) shall bow before Him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

 22:30  A seed (Offspring) shall serve Him; it shall be accounted to Yahweh for a generation.

 22:31  They shall come, and shall declare His righteousness unto a people that shall (yet) be born, that He hath done this.



Psalm 23:1  A Psalm of David. Yahweh is my shepherd; I shall not want (lack).

 23:2  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still (quiet) waters.

Revelation 7:17  For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

 23:3  He restoreth my soul: He leadeth (guides) me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

 23:4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil (calamity, harm): for You art with me; Your rod and Your staff they comfort me.

 23:5  You preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: You anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

 23:6  Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of Yahweh for ever.



Psalm 24:1  A Psalm of David. The earth (land) is Yahweh's, and the fulness thereof (contents of it); the world, and they that dwell therein.

 24:2  For He hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods (waters).

 24:3  Who shall ascend into the hill (mountain) of Yahweh? or who shall stand in His holy place?

 24:4  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity (by lies), nor sworn deceitfully.

Matthew 5:8  Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

 24:5  He shall receive the blessing from Yahweh, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

 24:6  This is the generation of them that seek Him, that seek Your face (presence), O Jacob. Selah.

 24:7  Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be you lift up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

 24:8  Who is this King of glory? Yahweh strong and mighty, Yahweh mighty in battle.

 24:9  Lift up your heads, O you gates; even lift them up, you everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

 24:10  Who is this King of glory? Yahweh of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah.



Psalm 25:1  A Psalm of David. Unto You, O YAHWEH, do I lift up my soul.

 25:2  O my God, I trust in You: let me not be ashamed (put to shame), let not mine (hated) enemies triumph over me.

 25:3  Yea, let none that wait (hope) on You be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

 25:4  Shew me Your ways, O YAHWEH; teach me Your paths.

 25:5  Lead me in Your truth, and teach me: for You art the God of my salvation; on You do I wait all the day.

 25:6  Remember, O YAHWEH, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

 25:7  Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to Your mercy remember You me for Your goodness' sake, O YAHWEH.

 25:8  Good and upright is Yahweh: therefore will He teach sinners in the way.

 25:9  The meek (humble) will He guide in judgment (justice): and the meek (humble) will He teach His way.

 25:10  All the paths of Yahweh are mercy and truth unto such as (for those that) keep His covenant and His testimonies.

 25:11  For Your name's sake, O YAHWEH, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.

 25:12  What man is he that feareth Yahweh? him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose.

 25:13  His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth (land).

 25:14  The secret of Yahweh is with them that fear Him; and He will shew them His covenant.

 25:15  Mine eyes are ever toward Yahweh; for He shall pluck (free) my feet out of the net.

 25:16  Turn You unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

 25:17  The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring You me out of my distresses.

 25:18  Look upon mine affliction and my pain (troubles); and forgive all my sins.

 25:19  Consider mine (hated) enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.

 25:20  O keep my soul (life), and deliver me: let me not be ashamed (put to shame); for I put my trust (take refuge) in You.

 25:21  Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on You.

 25:22  Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.



Psalm 26:1  A Psalm of David. Judge (Vindicate) me, O YAHWEH; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in Yahweh; therefore I shall not slide.

 26:2  Examine me, O YAHWEH, and prove me; try (test) my reins (mind) and my heart.

 26:3  For Your lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in Your truth.

 26:4  I have not sat with vain (worthless) persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers (keepers of secrets).

 26:5  I have hated the congregation (company) of evil doers; and will not sit with the wicked.

 26:6  I will wash mine hands in innocency: so will I compass Your altar, O YAHWEH:

 26:7  That I may publish (proclaim) with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all Your wondrous works.

 26:8  YAHWEH, I have loved the habitation of Your house, and the place where Your honour dwelleth.

 26:9  Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life with bloody men:

 26:10  In whose hands is mischief (wickedness), and their right hand is full of bribes.

 26:11  But as for me, I will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

 26:12  My foot standeth in an even place: in the congregations will I bless Yahweh.

The ceremony of hand washing is referred to in verse 6. The Tabernacle was where Yahweh's presence was “abiding”. A man's right hand is symbolic of a man's power, and any dealings referring to the right hand have great importance. Verse 9, gather refers to a gather unto your fathers type of thing. The gathering of souls.



Psalm 27:1  A Psalm of David. Yahweh is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Yahweh is the strength (fortress) of my life; of whom shall I be afraid (in awe)?

 27:2  When the wicked, even mine enemies and my (hated) foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

 27:3  Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

 27:4  One thing have I desired (asked) of Yahweh, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of Yahweh all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Yahweh, and to enquire (seek for truth) in His temple.

 27:5  For in the time of trouble (evil) He shall hide me in His pavilion (Tabernacle): in the secret of His tabernacle (Tent) shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock.

 27:6  And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine (hated) enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto Yahweh.

 27:7  Hear, O YAHWEH, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

 27:8  When You saidst, Seek you My face (presence); my heart said unto You, Your face (presence), YAHWEH, will I seek.

 27:9  Hide not Your face (presence) far from me; put not Your servant away in anger: You hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

 27:10  When my father and my mother forsake me, then Yahweh will take me up.

His parents were not going to leave him, this is poetic language.

 27:11  Teach me Your way, O YAHWEH, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

 27:12  Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

 27:13  I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living.

 27:14  Wait on Yahweh: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart: wait, I say, on Yahweh.

Just Trust Yahweh.


Psalm 28:1  A Psalm of David. Unto You will I cry, O YAHWEH my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if You be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

Pit is figurative for death.

 28:2  Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto You, when I lift up my hands toward Your holy oracle (room).

The holy room that housed the ark.

 28:3  Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief (evil) is in their hearts.

 28:4  Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours (actions): give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert (recompense).

Revelation 22:12  And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be.

 28:5  Because they regard (pay attention) not the works of Yahweh, nor the operation of His hands, He shall destroy them, and not build them up.

 28:6  Blessed be Yahweh, because He hath heard the voice of my supplications.

 28:7  Yahweh is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise Him.

 28:8  Yahweh is their strength, and He is the saving strength of His anointed.

 28:9  Save Your people, and bless Your inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.



Psalm 29:1  A Psalm of David. Give unto Yahweh, O you (sons of the) mighty, give unto Yahweh glory and strength.

 29:2  Give unto Yahweh the glory due unto His name; worship Yahweh in the beauty of holiness.

 29:3  The voice of Yahweh is upon the waters: the God of glory thundereth: Yahweh is upon many waters.

 29:4  The voice of Yahweh is powerful; the voice of Yahweh is full of majesty.

 29:5  The voice of Yahweh breaketh the cedars; yea, Yahweh breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.

 29:6  He maketh them also to skip like a calf; Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn (wild ox).

 29:7  The voice of Yahweh divideth the flames of fire.

 29:8  The voice of Yahweh shaketh the wilderness; Yahweh shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

 29:9  The voice of Yahweh maketh the hinds to calve, and discovereth (strips bare) the forests: and in His temple doth every one speak of His glory.

 29:10  Yahweh sitteth upon the flood (deluge); yea, Yahweh sitteth King for ever.

 29:11  Yahweh will give strength unto His people; Yahweh will bless His people with peace.



Psalm 30:1  A Psalm and Song at the dedication of the house of David. I will extol You, O YAHWEH; for You hast lifted me up, and hast not made my (hated) foes to rejoice over me.

 30:2  O YAHWEH my God, I cried unto You, and You hast healed me.

 30:3  O YAHWEH, You hast brought up my soul from the grave (land of the dead): You hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit (figurative for death).

 30:4  Sing unto Yahweh, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.

 30:5  For His anger endureth but a moment; in His favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

 30:6  And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved.

 30:7  YAHWEH, by Your favour You hast made my mountain (of Jerusalem) to stand strong: You didst hide Your face, and I was troubled.

 30:8  I cried to You, O YAHWEH; and unto Yahweh I made supplication.

 30:9  What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit (grave)? Shall the dust praise You? shall it declare Your truth (faithfulness)?

 30:10  Hear, O YAHWEH, and have mercy upon me: YAHWEH, be You my helper.

 30:11  You hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: You hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

 30:12  To the end that my glory may sing praise to You, and not be silent. O YAHWEH my God, I will give thanks unto You for ever.



Psalm 31:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. In You, O YAHWEH, do I put my trust (seek refuge); let me never be ashamed (put to shame): deliver me in Your righteousness.

 31:2  Bow down (Incline) Your ear to me; deliver me speedily: be You my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

 31:3  For You art my rock and my fortress; therefore for Your name's sake lead me, and guide me.

 31:4  Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for You art my strength (refuge).

 31:5  Into Your hand I commit my spirit: You hast redeemed me, O YAHWEH God of truth.

 31:6  I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in Yahweh.

 31:7  I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy: for You hast considered my trouble; You hast known my soul in adversities;

 31:8  And hast not shut me up into the hand of the (hated) enemy: You hast set my feet in a large room (broad place).

 31:9  Have mercy upon me, O YAHWEH, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

 31:10  For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.

 31:11  I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear (dread) to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without (on the street) fled from me.

 31:12  I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.

 31:13  For I have heard the slander (whisperings) of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

 31:14  But I trusted in You, O YAHWEH: I said, You art my God.

 31:15  My times are in Your hand: deliver me from the hand of mine (hated) enemies, and from them that persecute me.

 31:16  Make your face to shine upon Your servant: save me for Your mercies' sake.

 31:17  Let me not be ashamed (put to shame), O YAHWEH; for I have called upon You: let the wicked be ashamed (put to shame), and let them be silent in the grave.

 31:18  Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

 31:19  Oh how great is Your goodness, which You hast laid up for them that fear You; which You hast wrought for them that trust (take refuge) in You before the sons of men (Adam)!

 31:20  You shalt hide them in the secret of Your presence from the pride (intrigues) of man: You shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion (booth) from the strife (contentious) of tongues.

 31:21  Blessed be Yahweh: for He hath shewed me His marvellous kindness in a strong (besieged) city.

 31:22  For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before Your eyes: nevertheless You heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto You.

 31:23  O love Yahweh, all you His saints: for Yahweh preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

Hebrew ends as “...Yahweh preserves the faithful, and with abundance makes retribution to he who acts with arrogance.”

 31:24  Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in Yahweh.

3Maccabees 2:3  It is you, the Creator of all, the Sovereign of the universe, who art a righteous Governor, and judgest all who act with pride and insolence.



Psalm 32:1  A Psalm of David, Maschil (Instructive). Blessed (Happy) is he whose transgression is forgiven (lifted up), whose sin is covered.

 32:2  Blessed (Happy) is the man (Adam) unto whom Yahweh imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile (deceit).

Romans 4:7-8

7  Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.

8  Blessed is the man to whom the Prince will not impute sin.

 32:3  When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my (anguished) roaring all the day long.

 32:4  For day and night Your hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah.

 32:5  I acknowledged my sin unto You, and mine iniquity have I not hid (concealed). I said, I will confess my transgressions unto (against) Yahweh; and You forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.

 32:6  For this shall every one that is godly pray unto You in a time when You mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto Him.

 32:7  You art my hiding place; You shalt preserve me from trouble; You shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

 32:8  (Figuratively Yahweh speaking to David) I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you shalt go: I will guide you with Mine eye.

 32:9  Be you not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto you (or it will not stand with you).

 32:10  Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in Yahweh, mercy shall compass him about.

 32:11  Be glad in Yahweh, and rejoice, you righteous: and shout for joy, all you that are upright in heart.



Psalm 33:1  Rejoice in Yahweh, O Ye righteous: for praise is comely (appropriate) for the upright.

 33:2  Praise Yahweh with harp: sing unto Him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.

 33:3  Sing unto Him a new song; play skilfully (pleasingly) with a loud noise (shout of joy).

 33:4  For the word of Yahweh is right; and all His works are done in truth.

Verses 1 and 4 are from the same word, yashar, meaning upright, the same name of Jasher.

 33:5  He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth (land) is full of the goodness of Yahweh.

 33:6  By the word of Yahweh were the heavens (skies) made; and all the host (servants) of them by the breath of His mouth.

 33:7  He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: He layeth up the depth in storehouses.

 33:8  Let all the earth (land) fear Yahweh: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.

 33:9  For He spake, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast (endured).

 33:10  Yahweh bringeth the counsel (plans) of the heathen (nations) to nought: He maketh (thwarts) the devices (designs) of the people of none effect.

 33:11  The counsel (plans) of Yahweh standeth for ever, the thoughts (intentions) of His heart to all generations (for all ages).

 33:12  Blessed is the nation whose God is Yahweh; and the people whom He hath chosen for His own inheritance (possession).

 33:13  Yahweh looketh (watches) from heaven (the sky); He beholdeth all the sons of men (Adam).

 33:14  From the place of His habitation He looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth (land).

 33:15  He fashioneth their hearts alike; He considereth (pays attention) all their works (deeds).

 33:16  There is no king saved by the multitude of an host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.

Judith 9:7  For, behold, the Assyrians are multiplied in their power; they are exalted with horse and man; they glory in the strength of their footmen; they trust in shield, and spear, and bow, and sling; and know not that You art Yahweh that breakest the battles: Yahweh is Your name.

1Maccabees 3:19  For the victory of battle standeth not in the multitude of an host; but strength cometh from heaven.

 33:17  An horse is a vain thing (false hope) for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.

 33:18  Behold, the eye of Yahweh is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy;

 33:19  To deliver their soul (life) from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

 33:20  Our soul waiteth for Yahweh: He is our help and our shield.

 33:21  For our heart shall rejoice in Him, because we have trusted in His holy name.

 33:22  Let Your mercy, O YAHWEH, be upon us, according as we hope in You.



Psalm 34:1  A Psalm of David, when he changed his behaviour before Abimelech; who drove him away, and he departed.

1Samuel 21:13  And he changed his behaviour before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard.

14  Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, you see the man is mad: wherefore then have you brought him to me?

15  Have I need of mad men, that you have brought this fellow to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house?

 34:1  I will bless Yahweh at all times: His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

 34:2  My soul shall make her boast in Yahweh: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

 34:3  O magnify Yahweh with me, and let us exalt His name together.

 34:4  I sought (asked) Yahweh, and He heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

 34:5  They looked unto Him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

 34:6  This poor man cried, and Yahweh heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

 34:7  The angel (mesenger) of Yahweh encampeth round about them that fear Him, and delivereth them.

 34:8  O taste and see that Yahweh is good: blessed (happy) is the (mighty) man that trusteth (takes refuge) in Him.

1Peter 2:3  If so be you have tasted that the Prince is gracious.

 34:9  O fear (revere) Yahweh, you His saints: for there is no want to them that fear Him.

 34:10  The young lions (figurative for young strong men) do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek Yahweh shall not want any good thing.

 34:11  Come, you children, hearken unto me: I will teach you the fear (reverence) of Yahweh.

 34:12  What man is he that desireth life, and loveth many days, that he may see good?

 34:13  Keep your tongue from evil, and your lips from speaking guile (deceit).

 34:14  Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.

 34:15  The eyes of Yahweh are upon the righteous, and His ears are open unto their cry.

 34:16  The face of Yahweh is against them that do evil, to cut off the remembrance of them from the earth (land).

1Peter 3:10-12

10  For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:

11  Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it.

12  For the eyes of the Prince are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Prince is against them that do evil.

 34:17  The righteous (His people) cry, and Yahweh heareth, and delivereth them out of all their troubles.

 34:18  Yahweh is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite (crushed) spirit.

 34:19  Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but Yahweh delivereth him out of them all.

4Maccabees 18:15  He chanted to you David, the hymn-writer, who saith, Many are the afflictions of the just.

 34:20  He keepeth all his bones: not one of them is broken.

John 19:36  For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of Him shall not be broken.

David was given much insight regarding our Messiah.

 34:21  Evil shall slay the wicked: and they that hate the righteous shall be desolate (guilty).

 34:22  Yahweh redeemeth the soul of His servants: and none of them that trust (take refuge) in Him shall be desolate (guilty).



Psalm 35:1  A Psalm of David. Plead (Contend) my cause, O YAHWEH, with them that strive (contend) with me: fight (make war) against them that fight (make war) against me.

 35:2  Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

 35:3  Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am your salvation.

 35:4  Let them be confounded (disgraced) and put to shame that seek after my soul (life): let them be turned back and brought to confusion (humiliated) that devise my hurt.

 35:5  Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel (messenger) of Yahweh chase them.

 35:6  Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel (messenger) of Yahweh persecute (pursue) them.

 35:7  For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit, which without cause they have digged for my soul (life).

 35:8  Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.

3Maccabees 6:21  They turned back the animals upon the armed forces which followed them; and the animals trod them down, and destroyed them.

 35:9  And my soul shall be joyful in Yahweh: it shall rejoice in His salvation.

 35:10  All my bones shall say, YAHWEH, who is like unto You, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

 35:11  False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.

Hebrew: 11  Unjust witnesses arose, and asked me (inquired) of things I knew not.

 35:12  They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling (bereavement) of my soul.

 35:13  But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

 35:14  I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily (with sadness), as one that mourneth for his mother.

 35:15  But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects (smiters) gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:

Smite with words. Tore with words, a sustained verbal attack.

 35:16  With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.

Hebrew: “With impious mockery they gnashed upon me with their teeth.”

 35:17  Yahweh, how long wilt You look on? rescue (restore) my soul from their destructions (ravages), my darling (my precious life) from the lions.

 35:18  I will give You thanks in the great congregation: I will praise You among much people.

 35:19  Let not them that are mine (hated) enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

John 15:25  But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated Me without a cause.

The hated enemies of Christ would be the Canaanite and Edomite Jews.

 35:20  For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

 35:21  Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.

 35:22  This You hast seen, O YAHWEH: keep not silence: O Yahweh, be not far from me.

 35:23  Stir up Yourself, and awake to my judgment (case), even unto my cause, my God and my Elohiym.

 35:24  Judge me, O YAHWEH my God, according to Your righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.

 35:25  Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

 35:26  Let them be ashamed (put to shame) and brought to confusion (disgraced) together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me.

 35:27  Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let Yahweh be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.

 35:28  And my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness and of Your praise all the day long.



Psalm 36:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David the servant of Yahweh. The transgression of the wicked saith within my (his) heart, that there is no fear of God before his eyes.

Romans 3:18  There is no fear of God before their eyes.

 36:2  For he flattereth himself in his own eyes, until his iniquity be found to be hateful.

 36:3  The words of his mouth are iniquity and deceit: he hath left off (ceased) to be wise, and to do good.

 36:4  He deviseth mischief upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way (path) that is not good; he abhorreth (rejects) not evil.

 36:5  Your mercy, O YAHWEH, is in the heavens (skies); and Your faithfulness reacheth unto the clouds.

 36:6  Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep: O YAHWEH, You preservest man (Adam) and beast.

 36:7  How excellent (precious) is Your lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men (Adam) put their trust (take refuge) under the shadow of Your wings.

 36:8  They shall be abundantly satisfied with the fatness of Your house; and You shalt make them drink of the river of Your pleasures.

 36:9  For with You is the fountain of life: in Your light shall we see light.

 36:10  O continue Your lovingkindness unto them that know You; and Your righteousness to the upright in heart.

 36:11  Let not the foot of pride come against me, and let not the hand of the wicked remove me (make me flee).

 36:12  There are the workers of iniquity fallen: they are cast down, and shall not be able to rise.



Psalm 37:1  A Psalm of David. Fret not yourself because of evildoers, neither be you envious against the workers of iniquity.

 37:2  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb (grass).

Two different words for grass. H2682 and H1877. The second is the fresh new spring shoots that die quickly in a drought.

 37:3  Trust in Yahweh, and do good; so shalt you dwell in the land, and verily you shalt be fed.

 37:4  Delight yourself also in Yahweh; and He shall give you the desires of your heart.

 37:5  Commit your way unto Yahweh; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to pass.

 37:6  And He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, and your judgment as the noonday.

 37:7  Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for Him: fret not yourself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

 37:8  Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not yourself in any wise to do evil.

 37:9  For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon Yahweh, they shall inherit the earth (land).

 37:10  For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, you shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

Hebrew: 10  Yet a little while longer, and the wicked will be gone: yea, you shall diligently look for where he was, and he shall be gone.

 37:11  But the meek shall inherit the earth (land); and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

Matthew 5:5  Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth (land).

 37:12  The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

 37:13  Yahweh shall laugh at him: for He seeth that his day is coming.

 37:14  The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation (way of life).

 37:15  Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken (in pieces).

 37:16  A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

 37:17  For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but Yahweh upholdeth the righteous.

 37:18  Yahweh knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

 37:19  They shall not be ashamed (put to shame) in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

 37:20  But the wicked shall perish, and the (hated) enemies of Yahweh shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

 37:21  The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

 37:22  For such as be blessed of (by) Him shall inherit the earth (land); and they that be cursed of (by) Him shall be cut off.

 37:23  The steps of a good man are ordered (made firm) by Yahweh: and he delighteth in His way.

 37:24  Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for Yahweh upholdeth him with His hand.

 37:25  I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

 37:26  He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

He meaning the righteous man.

 37:27  Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

 37:28  For Yahweh loveth judgment, and forsaketh not His saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

 37:29  The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

Why did the KJV put the correct word land here and not earth like most everywhere else?

 37:30  The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

 37:31  The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

 37:32  The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

 37:33  Yahweh will not leave him (the righteous) in his (the wicked's) hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

 37:34  Wait on Yahweh, and keep His way, and He shall exalt you to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, you shalt see it.

 37:35  I have seen the wicked in great (ruthless) power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree (flourishing native tree).

The wicked act like the world is theirs.

 37:36  Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not (nothing): yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

 37:37  Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

Hebrew: 37  Watch the man of integrity, and see the upright: because the latter time of that man is peace.

 37:38  But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

 37:39  But the salvation of the righteous is of Yahweh: He is their strength (refuge) in the time of trouble.

 37:40  And Yahweh shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust (take refuge) in Him.



Psalm 38:1  A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. O YAHWEH, rebuke me not in Your wrath: neither chasten me in Your hot displeasure.

 38:2  For Your arrows stick fast in me, and Your hand presseth me sore.

 38:3  There is no soundness in my flesh because of Your anger; neither is there any rest (health) in my bones because of my sin.

 38:4  For mine iniquities are gone over mine head: as an heavy burden they are too heavy for me.

 38:5  My wounds (to the spirit) stink and are corrupt (fester) because of my foolishness.

Figurative of wounds to the spirit.

 38:6  I am troubled; I am bowed down greatly; I go mourning all the day long.

 38:7  For my loins are filled with a loathsome disease: and there is no soundness in my flesh.

Disease is in italics, meaning added by the translators. The Hebrew has burning.

 38:8  I am feeble and sore broken: I have roared by reason of the disquietness of my heart.

Hebrew: 8  I am very feeble and broken: I have cried in distress because of the palpitation of my heart.

 38:9  Yahweh, all my desire is before You; and my groaning (sighing) is not hid from You.

 38:10  My heart panteth, my strength faileth me: as for the light of mine eyes, it also is gone from me.

 38:11  My lovers and my friends stand aloof from my sore (spiritual blemish); and my kinsmen stand afar off.

A blemish in those days meant that one was unclean. Here it means a spiritual blemish.

 38:12  They also that seek after my life lay snares for me: and they that seek my hurt speak mischievous things, and imagine deceits all the day long.

 38:13  But I, as a deaf man, heard not; and I was as a dumb man that openeth not his mouth.

 38:14  Thus I was as a man that heareth not, and in whose mouth are no reproofs.

 38:15  For in You, O YAHWEH, do I hope: You wilt hear (answer), O Yahweh my God.

 38:16  For I said, Hear me, lest otherwise they should rejoice over me: when my foot slippeth, they magnify themselves against me.

 38:17  For I am ready to halt (set up to fall), and my sorrow is continually before me.

 38:18  For I will declare mine iniquity; I will be sorry (am fearful) for (because of) my sin.

 38:19  But mine (hated) enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully (without a cause) are multiplied.

 38:20  They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

 38:21  Forsake me not, O YAHWEH: O my God, be not far from me.

 38:22  Make haste to help me, O Yahweh my salvation.



Psalm 39:1  To the chief Musician, even to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David. I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.

 39:2  I was dumb (speechless) with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.

 39:3  My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,

 39:4  YAHWEH, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.

 39:5  Behold, You hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before You: verily every man (Adam) at his best state (in life) is altogether vanity. Selah.

 39:6  Surely every man walketh in a vain shew (as a shadow): surely they are disquieted in vain (in turmoil for nothing): he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.

 39:7  And now, Yahweh, what wait I for? my hope is in You.

 39:8  Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.

 39:9  I was dumb (speechless), I opened not my mouth; because You didst it.

 39:10  Remove Your stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow (stirring) of Your hand.

 39:11  When You with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, You makest his beauty (desires) to consume away like a moth: surely every man (Adam) is vanity. Selah.

 39:12  Hear my prayer, O YAHWEH, and give ear unto my cry; hold not Your peace at my tears: for I am a stranger (sojourner) with You, and a sojourner (foreigner), as all my fathers were.

 39:13  O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

Verses 1-6 the psalmist is plagued by the wicked that temp him to sin with words. All of man's life is short, and not as important as he would like to think. Riches are only vanity.

Verse 10 Yahweh is chastising with a figurative blow, and stirring up trouble for the psalmist.

Verse 11 Rebukes are punishments for sin, and the earthly desires of man are as frail as a moth.

Verse 12 shows that when we sin and commit error, we are strangers and foreign to Yahweh.



Psalm 40:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for (put my hope in) Yahweh; and He inclined unto me, and heard my cry.

 40:2  He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings (made secure my path).

 40:3  And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in Yahweh.

 40:4  Blessed (Happy) is that man that maketh Yahweh his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies (falsehood).

 40:5  Many, O YAHWEH my God, are Your wonderful works which You hast done, and Your thoughts which are to us-ward (plans concerning us): they cannot be reckoned up in order unto You: if I would declare and speak of them, they are more than can be numbered.

 40:6  Sacrifice and offering You didst not desire; mine ears hast You opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast You not required.

 40:7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

 40:8  I delight to do Your will, O my God: yea, Your law is within my heart.

Hebrews 10:5-7

5  Wherefore when cometh into the world, He saith, Sacrifice and offering you wouldest not, but a body hast you prepared Me:

6  In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin You hast had no pleasure.

7  Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do Your will, O God.

 40:9  I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O YAHWEH, You knowest.

 40:10  I have not hid Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation: I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great congregation.

 40:11  Withhold not You Your tender mercies from me, O YAHWEH: let Your lovingkindness and Your truth continually preserve me.

 40:12  For innumerable evils have compassed me about: mine iniquities have taken hold upon me, so that I am not able to look up; they are more than the hairs of mine head: therefore my heart faileth me.

 40:13  Be pleased (show me favor), O YAHWEH, to deliver me: O YAHWEH, make haste to help me.

 40:14  Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul (life) to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil.

 40:15  Let them be desolate for a reward of their shame that say unto me, Aha, aha.

 40:16  Let all those that seek You rejoice and be glad in You: let such as love Your salvation say continually, Yahweh be magnified.

 40:17  But I am poor and needy; yet Yahweh thinketh upon me: You art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying (do not delay), O my God.



Psalm 41:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Blessed (Happy) is he that considereth the poor: Yahweh will deliver him in time of trouble.

 41:2  Yahweh will preserve him, and keep him alive; and he shall be blessed (called happy) upon the earth (land): and You wilt not deliver him unto the will of his (hated) enemies.

 41:3  Yahweh will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing (illness): You wilt make (turn around) all his bed in his sickness.

 41:4  I said, YAHWEH, be merciful unto me: heal my soul; for I have sinned against You.

 41:5  Mine (hated) enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die, and his name perish?

 41:6  And if he come to see me, he speaketh vanity: his heart gathereth iniquity to itself; when he goeth abroad, he telleth it.

 41:7  All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise (plan) my hurt.

 41:8  An evil disease (matter), say they, cleaveth fast unto him: and now that he lieth he shall rise up no more.

 41:9  Yea, mine own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread, hath lifted up his heel against me.

Matthew 26:23  And He answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with Me in the dish, the same shall betray Me.

John 13:18  I speak not of you all: I know whom I have chosen: but that the scripture may be fulfilled, He that eateth bread with Me hath lifted up his heel against Me.

 41:10  But You, O YAHWEH, be merciful unto me, and raise me up, that I may requite them.

The Hebrew ends as “ that I may make retribution.”

 41:11  By this I know that You favourest me, because mine (hated) enemy doth not triumph over me.

 41:12  And as for me, You upholdest me in mine integrity, and settest me before Your face for ever.

 41:13  Blessed be Yahweh God of Israel from everlasting, and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.



Book II   Psalms 42-72

Psalm 42:1  To the chief Musician, Maschil (Instructive), for the sons of Korah. As the hart panteth (longs) after the water brooks, so panteth (longs) my soul after You, O God.

 42:2  My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

 42:3  My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is your God?

 42:4  When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.

 42:5  Why art you cast down, O my soul? and why art you disquieted (murmur) in me? hope you in God: for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance (presence).

 42:6  O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember You from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.

 42:7  Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of Your waterspouts: all Your waves and Your billows are gone over me.

Waves of despair. Figuratively chastisement from Yahweh.

 42:8  Yet Yahweh will command His lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night His song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.

 42:9  I will say unto God my rock, Why hast You forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the (hated) enemy?

 42:10  As with a sword in (crushing of) my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is your God?

 42:11  Why art you cast down, O my soul? and why art you disquieted within me? hope you in God: for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health (salvation) of my countenance (my being), and my God.



Psalm 43:1  Judge (Vindicate) me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation: O deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man.

 43:2  For You art the God of my strength (refuge): why dost You cast me off? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the (hated) enemy?

 43:3  O send out Your light and Your truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto Your holy hill, and to Your tabernacles.

 43:4  Then will I go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise You, O God my God.

 43:5  Why art you cast down, O my soul? and why art you disquieted (murmur) within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise Him, who is the health (salvation) of my countenance (being), and my God.



Psalm 44:1  To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, Maschil (Instructive). We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work You didst in their days, in the times of old.

 44:2  How You didst drive out the heathen (nations) with Your hand, and plantedst them (the fathers); how You didst afflict the people, and cast them out.

 44:3  For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but Your right hand, and Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You hadst a favour unto them.

 44:4  You art my King, O God: command deliverances for Jacob.

Jacob/Israel. The children of. These are our ancestors and the promises and covenants were made to and given only to the descendants of Jacob.

 44:5  Through You will we push down our enemies: through Your name will we tread them under that rise up against us.

 44:6  For I will not trust in my bow, neither shall my sword save me.

 44:7  But You hast saved us from our enemies, and hast put them to shame that hated us.

 44:8  In God we boast all the day long, and praise Your name for ever. Selah.

 44:9  But You hast cast off, and put us to shame; and goest not forth with our armies.

 44:10  You makest us to turn back from the enemy: and they which hate us spoil for themselves.

 44:11  You hast given us like sheep appointed for meat; and hast scattered (dispersed) us among the heathen (nations).

 44:12  You sellest Your people for nought (nothing), and dost not increase Your wealth by their price.

 44:13  You makest us a reproach to our neighbours, a scorn and a derision to them that are round about us.

 44:14  You makest us a byword among the heathen (nations), a shaking of the head among the people.

 44:15  My confusion (disgrace) is continually before me, and the shame of my face hath covered me,

 44:16  For (because of) the voice of him that reproacheth and blasphemeth; by reason of the (hated) enemy and avenger.

 44:17  All this is come upon us; yet have we not forgotten You, neither have we dealt falsely in Your covenant.

 44:18  Our heart is not turned back, neither have our steps declined from Your way;

 44:19  Though You hast sore broken us in the place of dragons, and covered us with the shadow of death.

Who are dragons, snakes and jackals? That would be a reference to our hated enemies, the Jews.

 44:20  If we have forgotten the name of our God, or stretched out our hands to a strange god;

 44:21  Shall not God search this out? for He knoweth the secrets of the heart.

 44:22  Yea, for Your sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter.

Romans 8:36  As it is written, For Your sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

 44:23  Awake, why sleepest You, O Yahweh? arise, cast us not off for ever.

 44:24  Wherefore hidest You Your face, and forgettest our affliction and our oppression?

 44:25  For our soul is bowed down to the dust: our belly cleaveth unto the earth (ground).

 44:26  Arise for our help, and redeem us for Your mercies' sake.



Psalm 45:1  To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim (according to Lilies), for the sons of Korah, Maschil (Instructive), A Song of loves. My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

Hebrew: 1  My heart overflows with good words: I speak of my workmanship about king: my tongue is the pen of a skilled scribe.

 45:2  You art fairer than the children of men (Adam): grace is poured into your lips: therefore God hath blessed you for ever.

Fair is just one of the many words used to describe the race of Adam. Jews are not fair.

 45:3  Gird your sword upon your thigh, O most mighty, with your glory and your majesty.

 45:4  And in your majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and your right hand shall teach you terrible things (awesome deeds).

 45:5  Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's (hated) enemies; whereby the people fall under you.

 45:6  Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of Your kingdom is a right (righteous) sceptre.

 45:7  You lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, your God, hath anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.

Scepter of righteousness means equitable leadership.

Hebrews 1:8-9

8  But unto the Son He saith, Your throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of Your kingdom.

9  You hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even your God, hath anointed you with the oil of gladness above your fellows.

 45:8  All your garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia, out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made you glad.

 45:9  Kings' daughters were among your honourable women: upon your right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

 45:10  Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear; forget also your own people, and your father's house;

 45:11  So shall the king greatly desire your beauty: for he is your lord; and worship (bow) you him.

 45:12  And the daughter of Tyre shall be there with a gift; even the rich among the people shall intreat your favour.

The daughter of Tyre is figurative for the people of.

 45:13  The king's daughter is all glorious within: her clothing is of wrought gold.

 45:14  She shall be brought unto the king in raiment of needlework: the virgins her companions that follow her shall be brought unto you.

 45:15  With gladness and rejoicing shall they be brought: they shall enter into the king's palace.

 45:16  Instead of your fathers shall be your children (sons), whom you mayest make princes in all the earth (land).

 45:17  I will make your name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise you for ever and ever.



Psalm 46:1  To the chief Musician for the sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth (girl sopranos, falsetto). God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

 46:2  Therefore will not we fear, though the earth (land) be removed, and though the mountains be carried (fall) into the midst of the sea;

 46:3  Yough the waters thereof roar and be troubled (foment), though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

 46:4  There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

 46:5  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early (when it turns to dawn).

 46:6  The heathen (nations) raged (roared against Jerusalem), the kingdoms were moved (fell): He uttered His voice, the earth (land) melted.

 46:7  Yahweh of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

The scriptures never claim God to any other race or people. The Bible is by, to, for and about the race of Adam.

 46:8  Come, behold the works of Yahweh, what desolations (ruin) He hath made in the earth (land).

 46:9  He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth (land); He breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; He burneth the chariot in the fire.

 46:10  Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen (nations), I will be exalted in the earth (land).

 46:11  Yahweh of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.



Psalm 47:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. O clap your hands, all you people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph (joyful singing).

 47:2  For Yahweh most high (Elyon) is terrible (awesome); He is a great King over all the earth (land).

 47:3  He shall subdue the people under us, and the nations under our feet.

 47:4  He shall choose our inheritance for us, the excellency of Jacob whom He loved. Selah.

 47:5  God is gone up with a shout, Yahweh with the sound of a trumpet.

 47:6  Sing praises to God, sing praises: sing praises unto our King, sing praises.

 47:7  For God is the King of all the earth (land): sing you praises with understanding.

 47:8  God reigneth over the heathen (nations): God sitteth upon the throne of His holiness.

 47:9  The princes of the people are gathered together, even the people of the God of Abraham: for the shields of the earth (land) belong unto God: He is greatly exalted.



Psalm 48:1  A Song and Psalm for the sons of Korah. Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of His holiness.

 48:2  Beautiful for situation (in elevation), the joy of the whole earth (land), is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.

Matthew 5:35  Nor by the earth; for it is His footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King.

 48:3  God is known in her palaces for a refuge.

 48:4  For, lo, the kings were assembled, they passed by together.

 48:5  They saw it, and so they marvelled; they were troubled (terrified), and hasted (fled) away.

 48:6  Fear took hold upon them there, and pain, as of a woman in travail.

 48:7  You breakest the ships of Tarshish with an east wind.

 48:8  As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of Yahweh of hosts, in the city of our God: God will establish it for ever. Selah.

 48:9  We have thought of Your lovingkindness, O God, in the midst of Your temple.

 48:10  According to Your name, O God, so is Your praise unto the ends of the earth (land): Your right hand is full of righteousness.

 48:11  Let mount Zion rejoice, let the daughters (cities) of Judah be glad, because of Your judgments.

 48:12  Walk about Zion, and go round about her: tell the towers thereof.

 48:13  Mark you well her bulwarks, consider her palaces; that you may tell it to the generation following.

 48:14  For this God is our God for ever and ever: He will be our guide even unto death.



Psalm 49:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. Hear this, all you people; give ear, all you inhabitants of the world:

 49:2  Both low and high, rich and poor, together.

The Hebrew has low (H120 Adam) and high (H376 males of high degree).

 49:3  My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding.

 49:4  I will incline mine ear to a parable (proverb): I will open my dark saying (riddle) upon the harp.

 49:5  Wherefore should I fear in the days of evil, when the iniquity of (those at) my heels shall compass me about?

Those at the heels would be those of the seed of Satan, Genesis 3:15. The Jews.

 49:6  They that trust in their wealth, and boast themselves in the multitude of their riches;

 49:7  None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give to God a ransom for him:

 49:8  (For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth for ever:)

Hebrew: 8  Because the price of redemption for their life is too costly, so it ceases forever:

 49:9  That he (the rich) should still live for ever, and not see corruption.

Verse 9 is a question. “Shall he still live forever, and not see the grave?”

 49:10  For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish (senseless) person perish, and leave their wealth to others.

Sirach 11:19  Whereas he saith, I have found rest, and now will eat continually of my goods; and yet he knoweth not what time shall come upon him, and that he must leave those things to others, and die.

 49:11  Their inward thought is, that their houses shall continue for ever, and their dwelling places to all generations; they call their lands after their own names.

 49:12  Nevertheless man (Adam) being in honour abideth not: he is like the beasts that perish.

 49:13  This their way is their folly (stupidity): yet their posterity approve their sayings. Selah.

 49:14  Like sheep they are laid in the grave; death shall feed on (shepherd) them; and the upright shall have dominion over them in the morning; and their beauty (rock) shall consume in the grave from their dwelling.

The rock is the strength of the rich through their money. They cannot take it with them to the land of the dead, their strength is worn away.

 49:15  But God will redeem my soul (life) from the power of the grave: for He shall receive me. Selah.

 49:16  Be not you afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased;

 49:17  For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him.

 49:18  Though while he lived he blessed his soul (life): and men will praise you, when you doest well to yourself.

 49:19  He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light.

 49:20  Man (Adam) that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish.



Psalm 50:1  A Psalm of Asaph. The mighty God, even Yahweh, hath spoken, and called the earth (land) from the rising of the sun unto the going down (setting) thereof.

 50:2  Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

 50:3  Our God shall come, and shall not keep silence: a fire shall devour before Him, and it shall be very tempestuous (stormy) round about Him.

 50:4  He shall call to the heavens (skies) from above, and to the earth (land), that He may judge His people.

 50:5  Gather My saints together unto Me; those that have made a covenant with Me by sacrifice.

 50:6  And the heavens (skies) shall declare His righteousness: for God is judge Himself. Selah.

 50:7  Hear, O My people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against you: I am God, even your God.

 50:8  I will not reprove you for (because of) your sacrifices or your burnt offerings, to have been continually before Me.

 50:9  I will take no bullock out of your house, nor he goats out of your folds.

 50:10  For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

 50:11  I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are Mine.

 50:12  If I were hungry, I would not tell you: for the world is Mine, and the fulness thereof (bounty of it).

 50:13  Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?

 50:14  Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay your vows unto the most High:

 50:15  And call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver you, and you shalt glorify (honor) Me.

 50:16  But unto the wicked God saith, What hast you to do to declare My statutes, or that you shouldest take My covenant in your mouth?

 50:17  Seeing you hatest instruction, and castest My words behind you.

 50:18  When you sawest a thief, then you consentedst (were pleased) with him, and hast been partaker with adulterers.

 50:19  You givest your mouth to evil, and your tongue frameth deceit (harnessed with deceit).

 50:20  You sittest and speakest against your brother; you slanderest your own mother's son.

 50:21  These things hast you done, and I kept silence; you thoughtest that I was altogether such an one as yourself: but I will reprove you, and set them in order before your eyes.

 50:22  Now consider this, you that forget God, lest I tear you in pieces, and there be none to deliver.

 50:23  Whoso offereth praise (thanksgiving) glorifieth (honors) Me: and to him that ordereth his conversation (puts his ways) aright will I shew the salvation of God.



2Samuel 12:1-15

1  And Yahweh sent Nathan unto David. And he came unto him, and said unto him, There were two men in one city; the one rich, and the other poor.

2  The rich man had exceeding many flocks and herds:

3  But the poor man had nothing, save one little ewe lamb, which he had bought and nourished up: and it grew up together with him, and with his children; it did eat of his own meat, and drank of his own cup, and lay in his bosom, and was unto him as a daughter.

4  And there came a traveller unto the rich man, and he spared to take of his own flock and of his own herd, to dress for the wayfaring man that was come unto him; but took the poor man's lamb, and dressed it for the man that was come to him.

5  And David's anger was greatly kindled against the man; and he said to Nathan, As Yahweh liveth, the man that hath done this thing shall surely die:

6  And he shall restore the lamb fourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.

7  And Nathan said to David, Thou art the man. Thus saith Yahweh God of Israel, I anointed you king over Israel, and I delivered you out of the hand of Saul;

8  And I gave you your master's house, and your master's wives into your bosom, and gave you the house of Israel and of Judah; and if that had been too little, I would moreover have given unto you such and such things.

9  Wherefore hast you despised the commandment of Yahweh, to do evil in His sight? you hast killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword, and hast taken his wife to be your wife, and hast slain him with the sword of the children of Ammon.

10  Now therefore the sword shall never depart from your house; because you hast despised Me, and hast taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.

11  Thus saith Yahweh, Behold, I will raise up evil against you out of your own house, and I will take your wives before your eyes, and give them unto your neighbour, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun.

12  For you didst it secretly: but I will do this thing before all Israel, and before the sun.

13  And David said unto Nathan, I have sinned against Yahweh. And Nathan said unto David, Yahweh also hath put away your sin; you shalt not die.

14  Howbeit, because by this deed you hast given great occasion to the enemies of Yahweh to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto you shall surely die.

15  And Nathan departed unto his house. And Yahweh struck the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick.

Psalm 51:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, when Nathan the prophet came unto him, after he had gone in to Bathsheba. Have mercy upon me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of Your tender mercies blot out my transgressions.

 51:2  Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

3Maccabees 2:19  Blot out our iniquities, and do away with our errors, and shew forth Your compassion in this hour.

 51:3  For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.

 51:4  Against You, You only, have I sinned, and done this evil in Your sight: that You mightest be justified when You speakest, and be clear when You judgest.

Romans 3:4  God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That you mightest be justified in your sayings, and mightest overcome when you art judged.

 51:5  Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

 51:6  Behold, You desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part You shalt make me to know wisdom.

 51:7  Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

 51:8  Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which You hast broken may rejoice.

 51:9  Hide Your face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.

 51:10  Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right (faithful) spirit within me.

 51:11  Cast me not away from Your presence; and take not Your holy spirit from me.

 51:12  Restore unto me the joy of Your salvation; and uphold me with Your free spirit (spirit of dignity).

 51:13  Then will I teach transgressors Your ways; and sinners shall be converted (returned) unto You.

 51:14  Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, You God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of Your righteousness.

 51:15  O Yahweh, open You my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth (declare) Your praise.

 51:16  For You desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: You delightest not in burnt offering.

 51:17  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite (crushed) heart, O God, You wilt not despise.

 51:18  Do good in Your good pleasure unto Zion: build You the walls of Jerusalem.

 51:19  Then shalt You be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon your altar.



1Samuel 22:9-10

9  Then answered Doeg the Edomite, which was set over the servants of Saul, and said, I saw the son of Jesse coming to Nob, to Ahimelech the son of Ahitub.

10  And he enquired of Yahweh for him, and gave him victuals, and gave him the sword of Goliath the Philistine.

Doeg the Edomite is a Jew. The Jews are of Cain and Esau's descendants. Esau is the father of the Edomite Jews. The Jews are NOT Israel.

Psalm 52:1  To the chief Musician, Maschil (Instructive), A Psalm of David, when Doeg the Edomite came and told Saul, and said unto him, David is come to the house of Ahimelech. Why boastest you (Doeg) yourself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endureth continually.

 52:2  Your tongue deviseth mischiefs (destruction); like a sharp razor, working deceitfully (treacherously).

 52:3  You lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.

 52:4  You lovest all devouring words, O you deceitful tongue.

 52:5  God shall likewise destroy you for ever, He shall take you away, and pluck you out of your dwelling place, and root you out of the land of the living. Selah.

 52:6  The righteous also shall see, and fear (awe), and shall laugh at him:

 52:7  Lo, this is the man (mighty man) that made not God his strength; but trusted in the abundance of his riches, and strengthened himself in his wickedness (destruction).

 52:8  But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

 52:9  I will praise You for ever, because You hast done it: and I will wait on Your name; for it is good before your saints.

The children of Esau (and Cain) will be destroyed, as verse 5 states, and in the Book of Obadiah, Zechariah, as well as many other places throughout all scripture.



Mahalath means sickness, worn out, sore, afflicted, weak, grieved.

Psalm 53:1  To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil (Instructive), A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.

 53:2  God looked down from heaven (sky) upon the children of men (Adam), to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.

 53:3  Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become (morally) filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Romans 3:10-12

10  As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:

11  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

12  They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

 53:4  Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up My people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.

 53:5  There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against you: you hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.

 53:6  Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of His people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

His people are the descendants of Jacob, the children of Israel. The 12 tribes that were scattered, settled, and became the white nations today. True Israel. Rejoice!



1Samuel 23:19  Then came up the Ziphites to Saul to Gibeah, saying, Doth not David hide himself with us in strong holds in the wood, in the hill of Hachilah, which is on the south of Jeshimon?

26:1  And the Ziphites came unto Saul to Gibeah, saying, Doth not David hide himself in the hill of Hachilah, which is before Jeshimon?

Psalm 54:1  To the chief Musician on Neginoth (stringed instrument), Maschil (Instructive), A Psalm of David, when the Ziphims came and said to Saul, Doth not David hide himself with us? Save me, O God, by Your name, and judge me by Your strength.

 54:2  Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.

 54:3  For strangers (foreigners) are risen up against me, and oppressors (ruthless men) seek after my soul (life): they have not set God before them. Selah.

 54:4  Behold, God is mine helper: Yahweh is with them that uphold (sustain) my soul (life).

 54:5  He shall reward evil unto mine enemies: cut them off in Your truth (faithfulness).

 54:6  I will freely sacrifice unto You: I will praise Your name, O YAHWEH; for it is good.

 54:7  For He hath delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath seen His desire upon mine (hated) enemies.



Psalm 55:1  To the chief Musician on Neginoth (stringed instrument), Maschil (Instructive), A Psalm of David. Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not Yourself from my supplication.

 55:2  Attend unto (Listen to) me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;

Hebrew ends as “...I wander about complaining, and make an uproar.”

 55:3  Because of the voice of the (hated) enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity (evil) upon me, and in wrath they hate (harrass) me.

 55:4  My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

 55:5  Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror (shuddering) hath overwhelmed me.

 55:6  And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.

 55:7  Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.

 55:8  I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

 55:9  Destroy (Swallow them up), O Yahweh, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.

Confound their speech.

 55:10  Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief (affliction) also and sorrow are in the midst of it.

 55:11  Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile (oppression) depart not from her streets.

 55:12  For it was not an (hated) enemy that reproached me; then I could have borne (endured) it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself against me; then I would have hid myself from him:

 55:13  But it was you, a man (mortal) mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.

 55:14  We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.

 55:15  Let death seize upon them (lead them astray), and let them go down quick into hell (the grave): for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among (within) them.

The KJV has among them. The Hebrew has within them, as in, in their hearts.

 55:16  As for me, I will call upon God; and Yahweh shall save me.

 55:17  Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.

Do you pray at least 3 times a day?

 55:18  He hath delivered my soul (life) in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with (against) me.

 55:19  God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.

 55:20  He (the betrayer) hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.

 55:21  The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.

 55:22  Cast your burden upon Yahweh, and He shall sustain you: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

 55:23  But You, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in You.

David was betrayed by a friend. He speaks of a covenant of friendship as being profaned. Smooth words spoken in deceit, which were drawn swords. From the beginning of David's reign as king, his detractors tried to tear him down.



1Samuel 21:13-15

13  And he (David) changed his behaviour before them, and feigned himself mad in their hands, and scrabbled on the doors of the gate, and let his spittle fall down upon his beard.

14  Then said Achish unto his servants, Lo, you see the man is mad: wherefore then have you brought him to me?

15  Have I need of mad men, that you have brought this fellow to play the mad man in my presence? shall this fellow come into my house?

Psalm 56:1  To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim (Dove of the Silence), Michtam (Poem) of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God: for man (mortals) would swallow me up (trample me); he fighting daily oppresseth me.

The Hebrew is more clear: “...fighting everyday he oppresses me.”

 56:2  Mine enemies would daily swallow me up (trample me): for they be many that fight against me, O You most High.

 56:3  What time I am afraid, I will trust in You.

 56:4  In God I will praise His word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

 56:5  Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

Hebrew: 5  Every day they hurt my affairs of business: all their intentions are against me to harm me.

 56:6  They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

 56:7  Shall they escape by iniquity (evil)? in Your anger cast down the people, O God.

 56:8  You tellest (recount) my wanderings (laments): put You my tears into Your bottle: are they not in Your book?

 56:9  When I cry unto You, then shall mine (hated) enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

 56:10  In God will I praise His word: in Yahweh will I praise His word.

 56:11  In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man (Adam) can do unto me.

 56:12  Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto You.

 56:13  For You hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not You deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before (in the presence of) God in the light of the living?

Light also means enlightenment or wisdom.



1Samuel 22:1  David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his father's house heard it, they went down thither to him.

24:3  And he came to the sheepcotes by the way, where was a cave; and Saul went in to cover his feet: and David and his men remained in the sides of the cave.

Psalm 57:1  To the chief Musician, Altaschith (Please do not destroy), Michtam (Poem) of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave. Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth (takes refuge) in You: yea, in the shadow of Your wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

 57:2  I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

 57:3  He shall send from heaven (the sky), and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up (trample me). Selah. God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.

 57:4  My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men (Adam), whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

Lions is a metaphor for violent men.

 57:5  Be You exalted, O God, above the heavens (skies); let Your glory be above all the earth (land).

 57:6  They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.

 57:7  My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.

 57:8  Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

 57:9  I will praise You, O Yahweh, among the people: I will sing unto You among the nations.

 57:10  For Your mercy is great unto the heavens (sky), and Your truth unto the clouds.

 57:11  Be You exalted, O God, above the heavens (sky): let Your glory be above all the earth (land).



Psalm 58:1  To the chief Musician, Altaschith (Please do not destroy), Michtam (Poem) of David. Do you indeed speak righteousness, O congregation (mighty ones)? do you judge uprightly, O you sons of men (Adam)?

In the context, mighty ones is correct, as the reference is to the people of power (judges).

 58:2  Yea, in heart you work wickedness; you weigh the violence of your hands in the earth (land).

 58:3  The wicked are estranged (wayward) from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies.

 58:4  Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear;

 58:5  Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely.

 58:6  Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O YAHWEH.

 58:7  Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when He bendeth His bow to shoot His arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.

 58:8  As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.

 58:9  Before your pots can feel (touch) the thorns, He shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in His wrath (burning anger).

 58:10  The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked.

 58:11  So that a man (Adam) shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily He is a God that judgeth in the earth (land).

In verse 4 the serpent is the same word as in Genesis, and also means an enchanter, or one that whispers spells. Verse 5 speaks of charmers that conjure.

In verse 6 young lions is a metaphor for young, strong warriors. The reference to the broken jaws is a symbolic breaking of their power.

In verse 7, the arrows are Yahweh's. The snail in verse 8 refers to the slimy trail left. The reference to stillborn child lowers them even further. This poem was some serious cursing on David's part.

Verse 10 the righteous will wash his feet in the blood shed by the enemy.



1Samuel 19:11  Saul also sent messengers unto David's house, to watch him, and to slay him in the morning: and Michal David's wife told him, saying, If you save not your life to night, to morrow you shalt be slain.

Psalm 59:1  To the chief Musician, Altaschith (Please do not destroy), Michtam (Poem) of David; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him. Deliver me from mine (hated) enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.

 59:2  Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.

 59:3  For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul (life): the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O YAHWEH.

 59:4  They run and prepare themselves without my fault (guilt): awake to help me, and behold.

 59:5  You therefore, O YAHWEH God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit (punishment on) all the heathen (nations): be not merciful to any wicked transgressors (deceivers). Selah.

 59:6  They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.

 59:7  Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?

 59:8  But You, O YAHWEH, shalt laugh at them; You shalt have all the heathen (nations) in derision.

 59:9  Because of his strength will (O my strength) I wait upon You: for God is my defence.

 59:10  The God of my mercy shall prevent (go before) me: God shall let me see my desire (triumph) upon mine enemies.

 59:11  Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter (shake) them by Your power; and bring them down, O Yahweh our shield.

 59:12  For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.

 59:13  Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth (land). Selah.

 59:14  And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.

 59:15  Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge (grumble) if they be not satisfied.

 59:16  But I will sing of Your power; yea, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning: for You hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.

 59:17  Unto You, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.



2Samuel 8:13  And David gat him a name when he returned from smiting of the Syrians in the valley of salt, being eighteen thousand men.

1Chronicles 18:12  Moreover Abishai the son of Zeruiah slew of the Edomites in the valley of salt eighteen thousand.

Psalm 60:1  To the chief Musician upon Shushaneduth (Lily, or trumpet, of the assembly), Michtam (Poem) of David, to teach; when he strove with Aramnaharaim and with Aramzobah, when Joab returned, and smote of Edom in the valley of salt twelve thousand. O God, You hast cast us off, You hast scattered us, You hast been displeased; O turn Yourself to us again.

The Hebrew has “...O restore us again.”

 60:2  You hast made the earth (land) to tremble; You hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

 60:3  You hast shewed Your people hard things: You hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment (staggering).

 60:4  You hast given a banner to them that fear You, that it may be displayed because of the (presence of the) truth. Selah.

 60:5  That Your beloved may be delivered; save with Your right hand, and hear (answer) me.

 60:6  God hath spoken in His holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete (portion) out the valley of Succoth.

 60:7  Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength (refuge) of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

 60:8  Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph you because of me.

 60:9  Who will bring me into the strong (besieged) city? who will lead me into Edom?

 60:10  Wilt not You, O God, which hadst cast us off? and You, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?

 60:11  Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.

Hebrew: 11  Give us help from our foe: for the deliverance of Adam is worthless.

 60:12  Through God we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies.



Psalm 61:1  To the chief Musician upon Neginah (stringed instrument), A Psalm of David. Hear my cry, O God; attend (respond) unto my prayer.

 61:2  From the end of the earth (land) will I cry unto You, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

 61:3  For You hast been a shelter (refuge) for me, and a strong tower from the (hated) enemy.

 61:4  I will abide in Your tabernacle for ever: I will trust (take refuge) in the covert (coverings) of Your wings. Selah.

 61:5  For You, O God, hast heard my vows: You hast given me the heritage (inheritance) of those that fear Your name.

 61:6  You wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.

 61:7  He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare (appoint) mercy and truth, which may preserve him.

 61:8  So will I sing praise unto Your name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.



Psalm 62:1  To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of David. Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from Him cometh my salvation.

 62:2  He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

 62:3  How long will you imagine mischief against a man? you shall be slain all of you: as a bowing wall shall you be, and as a tottering (leaning) fence.

 62:4  They only consult to cast him down from his excellency (high office): they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah.

 62:5  My soul, wait you only upon God; for my expectation is from Him.

 62:6  He only is my rock and my salvation: He is my defence (stronghold); I shall not be moved.

 62:7  In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

 62:8  Trust in Him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

 62:9  Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity (less than emptiness).

Men of low degree (H120 Adam), men of high degree (H376 males, not necessarily Adamites).

The race of Adam is true, pure, chosen. The race of men (the other races and the Jews) are a lie, mixed, profane, outside the covenants and promises.

 62:10  Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

 62:11  God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

 62:12  Also unto You, O Yahweh, belongeth mercy: for You renderest to every man according to his work.

Job 34:11  For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.

Jeremiah 17:10  I Yahweh search the heart, I try the reins (mind), even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.

Matthew 16:27  For the Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father with His angels; and then He shall reward every man according to his works.

Romans 2:6  Who will render to every man according to his deeds:

Revelation 2:23  And I will kill her children with death; and all the assemblies shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins (minds) and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.

So why do the “churches” teach that works don't matter, and “just believe”?



1Samuel 23:14  And David abode in the wilderness in strong holds, and remained in a mountain in the wilderness of Ziph. And Saul sought him every day, but God delivered him not into his hand.

Psalm 63:1  A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. O God, You art my God; early will I seek You: my soul thirsteth for You, my flesh longeth for You in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;

 63:2  To see Your power and Your glory, so as I have seen You in the sanctuary.

 63:3  Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise You.

 63:4  Thus will I bless You while I live: I will lift up my hands in Your name.

 63:5  My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness (the best of foods); and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips:

 63:6  When I remember You upon my bed, and meditate on You in the night watches.

 63:7  Because You hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice.

 63:8  My soul followeth hard after You: Your right hand upholdeth (supports) me.

 63:9  But those that seek my soul (life), to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth.

The lower parts of the earth (land) is figuratively the grave (sheol).

 63:10  They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes.

Portion is food, foxes are considered scavengers, and unclean.

 63:11  But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by Him shall glory (shout praises): but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.



Psalm 64:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the (hated) enemy.

 64:2  Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity (wickedness):

 64:3  Who whet (sharpen) their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words:

 64:4  That they may shoot in secret at the perfect (those of integrity): suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.

 64:5  They encourage (strengthen) themselves in an evil matter (evil speech): they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?

 64:6  They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search: both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.

Hebrew: 6  They search for unrighteousness; they complete a search for a plan: both the inward thoughts and the inward nature of every one of them, is mysterious.

 64:7  But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly (unexpectantly) shall they be wounded.

 64:8  So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves: all that see them shall flee away.

 64:9  And all men (Adam) shall fear (revere), and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of His doing.

 64:10  The righteous shall be glad in Yahweh, and shall trust (seek refuge) in Him; and all the upright in heart (in their inward nature) shall glory (shout His praise).



Psalm 65:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm and Song of David. Praise waiteth for You, O God, in Zion: and unto You shall the vow be performed (completed).

 65:2  O You that hearest prayer, unto You shall all flesh come.

 65:3  Iniquities prevail against me: as for our transgressions, You shalt purge them away.

 65:4  Blessed is the man whom You choosest, and causest to approach unto You, that he may dwell in Your courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness (spiritual blessings) of Your house, even of Your holy temple.

 65:5  By terrible (awesome) things in righteousness (justice) wilt You answer us, O God of our salvation; Who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth (land), and of them that are afar off upon the sea:

 65:6  Which by His strength setteth fast the mountains; being girded with power:

 65:7  Which stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves, and the tumult of the people.

 65:8  They also that dwell in the uttermost parts (entire heavens) are afraid at Your tokens (signs): You makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.

 65:9  You visitest the earth (land), and waterest it: You greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water: You preparest them corn, when You hast so provided (prepared) for it.

 65:10  You waterest the ridges thereof abundantly: You settlest the (plowed) furrows thereof: You makest it soft with showers: You blessest the springing thereof.

Grant a bountiful year.

 65:11  You crownest the year with Your goodness; and Your paths drop fatness (overflow with abundance).

 65:12  They drop upon (overflow) the pastures of the wilderness: and the little hills rejoice on every side.

 65:13  The pastures are clothed with flocks; the valleys also are covered over with corn; they shout for joy, they also sing.



Psalm 66:1  To the chief Musician, A Song or Psalm. Make a joyful noise unto God, all you lands:

 66:2  Sing forth the honour of His name: make His praise glorious.

 66:3  Say unto God, How terrible (awesome) art You in Your works! through the greatness of Your power shall Your (hated) enemies submit themselves unto You (cringe before You).

 66:4  All the earth (land) shall worship You, and shall sing unto You; they shall sing to Your name. Selah.

 66:5  Come and see the works of God: He is terrible (awesome) in His doing toward the children of men (Adam).

 66:6  He turned the sea into dry land: they went through the flood (sea) on foot: there did we rejoice in Him.

Exodus 14:21  And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and Yahweh caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

 66:7  He ruleth by His power for ever; His eyes behold the nations: let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah.

 66:8  O bless our God, you people, and make the voice of His (song of) praise to be heard:

 66:9  Which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved.

 66:10  For You, O God, hast proved us: You hast tried us, as silver is tried.

 66:11  You broughtest us into the net; You laidst affliction upon our loins (hips).

 66:12  You hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but You broughtest us out into a wealthy (abundant) place.

 66:13  I will go into Your house with burnt offerings: I will pay You my vows,

 66:14  Which my lips have uttered, and my mouth hath spoken, when I was in trouble.

 66:15  I will offer unto You burnt sacrifices of fatlings, with the incense of rams; I will offer bullocks with goats. Selah.

 66:16  Come and hear, all you that fear God, and I will declare what He hath done for my soul.

 66:17  I cried unto Him with my mouth, and He was extolled with my tongue.

 66:18  If I regard iniquity in my heart, Yahweh will not hear me:

 66:19  But verily God hath heard me; He hath attended to the voice of my prayer.

 66:20  Blessed be God, which hath not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me.

This 66th Psalm is believed to have been written by David.



Psalm 67:1  To the chief Musician on Neginoth (stringed instrument), A Psalm or Song. God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause His face (countenance) to shine upon us; Selah.

 67:2  That Your way (of life) may be known upon earth (land), Your saving health (deliverance) among all nations.

 67:3  Let the people praise You, O God; let all the people praise You.

 67:4  O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for You shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth (land). Selah.

 67:5  Let the people praise You, O God; let all the people praise You.

 67:6  Then shall the earth (land) yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

 67:7  God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth (land) shall fear (revere) Him.



Psalm 68:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm or Song of David. Let God arise, let His (hated) enemies be scattered: let them also that hate Him flee before Him (His presence).

 68:2  As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

 68:3  But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before (the presence) God: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice.

 68:4  Sing unto God, sing praises to His name: extol Him that rideth upon the heavens (desert) by His name YAH, and rejoice before Him (in His presence).

Heavens here should be desert, H6160.

 68:5  A father of the fatherless, and a judge of the widows, is God in His holy habitation.

 68:6  God setteth the solitary (those alone) in families: He bringeth out (frees) those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.

 68:7  O God, when You wentest forth before Your people, when You didst march through the wilderness; Selah:

 68:8  The earth (land) shook, the heavens (skies) also dropped (rain) at (because of) the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel.

Exodus 19:18  And mount Sinai was altogether on a smoke, because Yahweh descended upon it in fire: and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.

 68:9  You, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby You didst confirm Your inheritance, when it was weary (worn out).

 68:10  Your congregation hath dwelt therein: You, O God, hast prepared of Your goodness (abundance) for the poor.

 68:11  Yahweh gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.

 68:12  Kings of armies did flee apace: and she that tarried at home divided the spoil.

 68:13  Though you have lien among the pots (between the campfires), yet shall you be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold.

 68:14  When the Almighty scattered kings in it, it was white as snow in Salmon.

Referring to a former military victory over an enemy.

 68:15  The hill of God is as the hill of Bashan; an high hill as the hill of Bashan.

 68:16  Why leap you (leap in expectation), you high hills? this is the hill which God desireth to dwell in; yea, Yahweh will dwell in it for ever.

Verse 15, the hill of God is Mount Zion, and it is compared to for similarity of the height. Mount Zion, however, is Yahweh's chosen mountain (people), and Bashan is not. This is shown in verse 16, where Bashan is told not to expect anything, as Zion is the chosen one. Bashan was envious, of course.

 68:17  The chariots of God are twenty thousand, even thousands of angels: Yahweh is among them, as in Sinai, in the holy place.

The holy tabernacle of Yahweh.

 68:18  You hast ascended on high, You hast led captivity captive: You hast received gifts for men (Adam); yea, for the rebellious also, that Yahweh God might dwell among them.

Ephesians 4:8  Wherefore He saith, When He ascended up on high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.

 68:19  Blessed be Yahweh, who daily loadeth us (carries us as a burden) with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.

 68:20  He that is our God is the God of salvation; and unto GOD Yahweh belong the issues from (of) death.

The issue of death means whether you live or die.

 68:21  But God shall wound (severely) the head of His (hated) enemies, and the hairy scalp of such an one as goeth (continues) on still in his trespasses (guilt).

 68:22  Yahweh said, I will bring again from Bashan, I will bring My people again from the depths of the sea:

 68:23  That your foot may be dipped in the blood of your (hated) enemies, and the tongue of your dogs in the same.

 68:24  They have seen Your goings, O God; even the goings of my God, my King, in the sanctuary.

 68:25  The singers went before, the players on instruments followed after; among them were the damsels playing with timbrels.

 68:26  Bless you God in the congregations, even Yahweh, from the fountain of Israel.

 68:27  There is little (younger) Benjamin with their ruler, the princes of Judah and their council, the princes of Zebulun, and the princes of Naphtali.

 68:28  Your God hath commanded your strength (strong voice): strengthen, O God, that which You hast wrought (made) for us.

 68:29  Because of Your temple at Jerusalem shall kings bring presents unto You.

 68:30  Rebuke the company (beasts) of spearmen (with spears), the multitude of the bulls, with the calves of the people, till every one submit himself with pieces of silver: scatter you the people that delight in war.

Company of spearmen is far from accurate, as the rest of the verse continues to use analogies of animals for people. Bulls means their mighty men, and calves is their power. This verse speaks of the enemies of Israel as beasts, a common derogatory term in those days.

 68:31  Princes (Ambassadors) shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia (Cush) shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.

 68:32  Sing unto God, you kingdoms of the earth (land); O sing praises unto Yahweh; Selah:

 68:33  To Him that rideth upon the heavens (skies) of heavens (skies), which were of old; lo, He doth send out His voice, and that a mighty voice.

 68:34  Ascribe you strength unto God: His excellency is over Israel, and His strength is in the clouds.

He has power over the sky (heavens).

 68:35  O God, You art terrible (awesome) out of Your holy places: the God of Israel is He that giveth strength and power unto His people. Blessed be God.


Psalm 69:1  To the chief Musician upon Shoshannim (Lilies), A Psalm of David. Save me, O God; for the waters are come in unto my soul.

 69:2  I sink in deep mire, where there is no standing (place to stand): I am come into deep waters, where the floods overflow me.

 69:3  I am weary of my crying: my throat is dried: mine eyes fail while I wait for my God.

 69:4  They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine (hated) enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.

The last part should be a question, “...must I now restore that which I did not take away?”

 69:5  O God, You knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from You.

 69:6  Let not them that wait on you, O Yahweh GOD of hosts, be ashamed (put to shame) for my sake: let not those that seek You be confounded (disgraced) for my sake, O God of Israel.

 69:7  Because for Your sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.

 69:8  I am become a stranger (foreigner) unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother's children.

 69:9  For the zeal of Your house hath eaten me up; and the reproaches of them that reproached You are fallen upon me.

John 2:17  And His disciples remembered that it was written, The zeal for Your house hath eaten Me up.

Romans 15:3  For even Christ pleased not Himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached you fell on Me.

 69:10  When I wept, and chastened my soul with fasting, that was to my reproach.

 69:11  I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them.

 69:12  They that sit in the gate speak against me; and I was the song of the drunkards.

 69:13  But as for me, my prayer is unto You, O YAHWEH, in an acceptable time: O God, in the multitude (abundance) of Your mercy hear (answer) me, in the truth of Your salvation.

 69:14  Deliver me out of the mire, and let me not sink: let me be delivered from them that hate me, and out of the deep waters.

 69:15  Let not the waterflood overflow me, neither let the deep swallow me up, and let not the pit shut her mouth upon me.

 69:16  Hear (Answer) me, O YAHWEH; for Your lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude (abundance) of Your tender mercies.

 69:17  And hide not Your face from Your servant; for I am in trouble: hear (answer) me speedily.

 69:18  Draw nigh unto my soul, and redeem it: deliver me because of mine (hated) enemies.

 69:19  You hast known my reproach, and my shame, and my dishonour: mine adversaries are all before You.

 69:20  Reproach hath broken my heart; and I am full of heaviness (helpless): and I looked for some to take pity (to have sympathy), but there was none; and for comforters, but I found none.

 69:21  They gave me also gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

Vinegar here was a special fermented vinegar forbidden to Nazarites (men consecrated to Yahweh's service), and was very bitter. Gall here can also be translated poison. This is another “messianic” Psalm.

 69:22  Let their table become a snare before them: and that which should have been for their welfare, let it become a trap.

 69:23  Let their eyes be darkened, that they see not; and make their loins continually to shake.

Romans 11:9-10

9  And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumblingblock, and a recompence unto them:

10  Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

 69:24  Pour out your indignation upon them, and let Your wrathful anger take hold of them.

 69:25  Let their habitation be desolate; and let none dwell in their tents.

Acts 1:20  For it is written in the book of Psalms, Let his habitation be desolate, and let no man dwell therein: and his bishoprick let another take.

 69:26  For they persecute him whom You hast smitten; and they talk to the grief of those whom You hast wounded.

The last part in Hebrew reads, “...and they recount the suffering of the mortally wounded.”

 69:27  Add iniquity unto their iniquity: and let them not come into Your righteousness.

 69:28  Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

Revelation 3:5  He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before My Father, and before His angels.

Revelation 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship Him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Revelation 17:8  The beast that you sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

 69:29  But I am poor and sorrowful (in pain): let Your salvation, O God, set me up on high (make me safe).

 69:30  I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify Him with thanksgiving.

 69:31  This also shall please Yahweh better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.

Verse 30 gives His title (God, Elohiym), and verse 31 gives His Name, Yahweh. Scripture is full of demands to call Him by His Name, Yahweh. God is a title. Lord is a title, and the title of Baal, which is Satan. Stop using Lord! This deceptive title has most all of Yahweh's children calling Him the title of the Devil (Lord). This must and will stop! Hosea 2:16  And it shall be at that day, saith Yahweh, that you shalt call Me Ishi (husband); and shalt call Me no more Baali (Baal, Baalim, Lord, Satan, the Devil).

 69:32  The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.

 69:33  For Yahweh heareth the poor, and despiseth not His prisoners.

 69:34  Let the heaven (sky) and earth (the land) praise Him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.

 69:35  For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.

 69:36  The seed also of His servants shall inherit it: and they that love His name shall dwell therein.




Psalm 70:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, to bring to remembrance. Make haste, O God, to deliver me; make haste to help me, O YAHWEH.

 70:2  Let them be ashamed and confounded (humiliated) that seek after my soul (life): let them be turned backward, and put to confusion (put to shame), that desire my hurt.

 70:3  Let them be turned back for a reward (the consequences) of their shame that say, Aha, aha.

 70:4  Let all those that seek You rejoice and be glad in You: and let such as love Your salvation say continually, Let God be magnified.

 70:5  But I am poor and needy: make haste unto me, O God: You art my help and my deliverer; O YAHWEH, make no tarrying (delay).



Psalm 71:1  In You, O YAHWEH, do I put my trust (seek refuge): let me never be put to confusion (shame).

 71:2  Deliver me in Your righteousness, and cause me to escape (take me to safety): incline Your ear unto me, and save me.

 71:3  Be You my strong habitation (Rock of refuge), whereunto I may continually resort: You hast given commandment to save me; for You art my rock and my fortress.

 71:4  Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man.

 71:5  For You art my hope, O Yahweh GOD: You art my trust from my youth.

 71:6  By You have I been holden up from the womb: You art He that took me out of my mother's bowels: my praise shall be continually of You.

 71:7  I am as a wonder (sign) unto many; but You art my strong refuge.

 71:8  Let my mouth be filled with Your praise and with Your honour (glory) all the day.

 71:9  Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.

 71:10  For mine (hated) enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul (life) take counsel (conspire) together,

 71:11  Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute (pursue) and take him; for there is none to deliver him.

 71:12  O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.

 71:13  Let them be confounded (put to shame) and consumed that are adversaries to my soul (life); let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.

 71:14  But I will hope continually, and will yet praise You more and more.

 71:15  My mouth shall shew forth Your righteousness and Your salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers (full amount) thereof.

 71:16  I will go in the strength of Yahweh GOD: I will make mention of Your righteousness, even of Your's only.

 71:17  O God, You hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared Your wondrous works.

 71:18  Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed (made known) Your strength unto this generation, and Your power to every one that is to come.

 71:19  Your righteousness also, O God, is very high, Who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto You!

 71:20  You, which hast shewed me great and sore (evil) troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth (land).

 71:21  You shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side.

 71:22  I will also praise You with the psaltery, even Your truth, O my God: unto You will I sing with the harp, O You Holy One of Israel.

 71:23  My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto You; and my soul (life), which You hast redeemed.

 71:24  My tongue also shall talk (speak) of Your righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.



Psalm 72:1  A Psalm for Solomon. Give the king Your judgments, O God, and Your righteousness unto the king's son.

 72:2  He shall judge (govern) Your people with righteousness, and Your poor with judgment (justice).

 72:3  The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.

 72:4  He shall judge (govern) the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.

 72:5  They shall fear You (Yahweh) as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.

 72:6  He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth (land).

 72:7  In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endureth.

 72:8  He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth (land).

Zechariah 9:10  And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the nations: and His dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.

Sirach 44:21  Therefore He assured him by an oath, that He would bless the nations in his seed, and that He would multiply him as the dust of the earth, and exalt his seed as the stars, and cause them to inherit from sea to sea, and from the river unto the utmost part of the land.

 72:9  They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow (in submission) before him; and his (hated) enemies shall lick the dust.

 72:10  The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.

 72:11  Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.

 72:12  For he shall deliver the needy when he crieth; the poor also, and him that hath no helper.

 72:13  He shall spare (have compassion upon) the poor and needy, and shall save the souls (lives) of the needy.

 72:14  He shall redeem their soul (lives) from deceit (oppression) and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.

 72:15  And he shall live (Long may he live), and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.

 72:16  There shall be an handful of corn in the earth (land) upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake (be abundant) like (the forests of) Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth (land).

 72:17  His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.

 72:18  Blessed be Yahweh God, the God of Israel, who only (alone) doeth wondrous things.

 72:19  And blessed be His glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth (land) be filled with His glory; Amen, and Amen.

 72:20  The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.



Book III   Psalms 73-89

Psalm 73:1  A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean (pure) heart.

 73:2  But as for me, my feet were almost gone (turned aside); my steps had well nigh slipped.

Turned aside from righteousness.

 73:3  For I was envious at the foolish (boastful), when I saw the prosperity (peace) of the wicked.

 73:4  For there are no bands (pain) in their death: but their strength is firm.

 73:5  They are not in trouble as other men (mortals); neither are they plagued like other men (Adam).

These wicked (v3) are not Adamic.

 73:6  Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain (necklace); violence covereth them as a garment.

 73:7  Their eyes stand out with (from) fatness: they have more than (go beyond all) heart could wish (imagine).

They abound in excessive prosperity.

 73:8  They are corrupt (They mock), and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily (from high places).

Positions of power.

 73:9  They set their mouth (speak) against the heavens (sky), and their tongue walketh through the earth (land).

 73:10  Therefore His people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to (by) them.

The wicked drain the substance of Yahweh's people.

 73:11  And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?

 73:12  Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.

 73:13  Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.

Ritual purification before worship.

 73:14  For all the day long have I been plagued (afflicted), and chastened (corrected) every morning.

 73:15  If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend (act falsely) against the generation of Your children.

 73:16  When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me (it was troubling in my eyes);

 73:17  Until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end.

 73:18  Surely You didst set them in slippery places: You castedst them down into destruction.

 73:19  How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.

 73:20  As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Yahweh, when You awakest, You shalt despise their image.

 73:21  Thus my heart was grieved (bitter), and I was pricked (pierced) in my reins (heart).

 73:22  So foolish was I, and ignorant (had no knowledge): I was as a beast before You.

 73:23  Nevertheless I am continually with You: You hast holden me by my right hand.

 73:24  You shalt guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory.

 73:25  Whom have I in heaven (the sky) but You? and there is none upon earth (land) that I desire beside You.

 73:26  My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength (Rock) of my heart, and my portion for ever.

 73:27  For, lo, they that are far from You shall perish: You hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from You.

 73:28  But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust (refuge) in Yahweh GOD, that I may declare all Your works.



Psalm 74:1  Maschil (Instructive) of Asaph. O God, why hast You cast us off for ever? why doth Your anger smoke against the sheep of Your pasture?

 74:2  Remember Your congregation, which You hast purchased of old; the rod (tribe) of Your inheritance, which You hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein You hast dwelt.

 74:3  Lift up Your feet unto the perpetual desolations; even all that the (hated) enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.

Perpetual desolations are the ruined towns in Israel. The state of Israel today is a perpetual desolation because the hated enemies of Christ dwell there. The Jews are NOT Israel, they are of Cain and Esau. The land has NOT been cleansed of the blood shed of Abel to Zacharias yet. This will happen when Christ returns.

Matthew 23:35-36

35  That upon you (Jews) may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom you slew between the temple and the altar.

36  Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation (race).

Christ Himself was talking to the Jew Pharisees and their race.

 74:4  Your enemies roar in the midst of Your congregations; they set up their ensigns for signs.

The Hebrew ends as “...they appoint their signs as Your signs.”

The Jews have taken our laws and heritage and made them their own, hence 'the traditions of men', and today's “church” doctrine. Wake up!

 74:5  A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees.

 74:6  But now they break down the carved work thereof at once with axes and hammers.

A reference to the destruction of the carved artwork in Solomon's temple.

 74:7  They have cast fire into Your sanctuary, they have defiled by casting down the dwelling place of Your name to the ground.

 74:8  They said in their hearts, Let us destroy them together: they have burned up all the synagogues of God in the land.

 74:9  We see not our signs: there is no more any prophet: neither is there among us any that knoweth how long.

 74:10  O God, how long shall the adversary reproach (taunt)? shall the (hated) enemy blaspheme Your name for ever?

 74:11  Why withdrawest You Your hand, even Your right hand? pluck it out of Your bosom.

The right hand is a symbol of power.

 74:12  For God is my King of old, working salvation in the midst of the earth (land).

 74:13  You didst divide the sea by Your strength: You brakest the heads of the dragons (crocodiles) in the waters.

 74:14  You brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness (desert).

Job 41:1  Canst you draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which you lettest down?

Isaiah 27:1  In that day Yahweh with His sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

 74:15  You didst cleave the fountain and the flood: You driedst up mighty rivers.

 74:16  The day is Yours, the night also is Yours: You hast prepared the light and the sun.

 74:17  You hast set all the borders of the earth (land): You hast made summer and winter.

 74:18  Remember this, that the (hated) enemy hath reproached (taunted), O YAHWEH, and that the foolish people have blasphemed Your name.

 74:19  O deliver not the soul (life) of Your turtledove unto the multitude of the wicked: forget not the congregation of Your poor for ever.

Turtledove is a metaphor for Israel.

 74:20  Have respect (regard) unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth (land) are full of the habitations of cruelty.

Have respect or regard means obey the commands.

 74:21  O let not the oppressed return ashamed: let the poor and needy praise Your name.

 74:22  Arise, O God, plead Your own cause: remember how the foolish man reproacheth (taunts) You daily.

 74:23  Forget not the voice of Your enemies: the tumult of those that rise up against You increaseth continually.

This Psalm is an appeal to Yahweh to take action against the destroyers of the temple of Solomon, and the enemies of Israel. Israel was being punished for it's iniquities at the time, and Asaph reminded Yahweh of the former times when He had done awesome works and showed His power.

Verse 13, the crocodiles refers to the symbol of Egypt and it's power, as the crocodile was one of it's 'gods'.



Psalm 75:1  To the chief Musician, Altaschith (Please do not destroy), A Psalm or Song of Asaph. Unto You, O God, do we give thanks, unto you do we give thanks: for that Your name is near Your wondrous works declare.

 75:2  When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly (justly).

 75:3  The earth (land) and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.

 75:4  I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:

 75:5  Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck (with arrogance and insolence).

 75:6  For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.

 75:7  But God is the judge: He putteth down one, and setteth up another.

 75:8  For in the hand of Yahweh there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture (spices); and He poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth (land) shall wring them out, and drink them.

The cup of judgment. The blessings go to the righteous, and the dregs (wrath) go to the wicked.

 75:9  But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.

 75:10  All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted.



Psalm 76:1  To the chief Musician on Neginoth (stringed instrument), A Psalm or Song of Asaph. In Judah is God known: His name is great in Israel.

 76:2  In Salem also is His tabernacle (tent of meeting), and His dwelling place in Zion.

The Temple was not yet built.

 76:3  There brake He the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle. Selah.

 76:4  You art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.

Prey is the booty from war, gold, jewels, etc.

 76:5  The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands (strength).

 76:6  At Your rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

 76:7  You, even You, art to be feared (awed): and who may stand in Your sight (presence) when once You art angry?

 76:8  You didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven (the sky); the earth (land) feared, and was still,

 76:9  When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth (land). Selah.

 76:10  Surely the wrath of man (Adam) shall praise (acknowledge) You: the remainder of wrath shalt You restrain.

 76:11  Vow, and pay (complete them) unto Yahweh Your God: let all that be round about Him bring presents unto Him that ought to be feared (the Awesome One).

 76:12  He shall cut off (humble) the spirit of princes: He is terrible (awesome) to the kings of the earth (land).



Psalm 77:1  To the chief Musician, to Jeduthun, A Psalm of Asaph. I cried unto God with my voice, even unto God with my voice; and He gave ear unto me.

 77:2  In the day of my trouble I sought Yahweh: my sore (strength) ran (ran out) in the night, and ceased not (could not move): my soul refused to be comforted.

 77:3  I remembered God, and was troubled: I complained, and my spirit was overwhelmed. Selah.

 77:4  You holdest mine eyes waking (open in watchfulness): I am so troubled that I cannot speak.

 77:5  I have considered the days of old, the years of ancient times (long past).

 77:6  I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search (for understanding).

 77:7  Will Yahweh cast off for ever? and will He be favourable no more?

 77:8  Is His mercy clean gone for ever? doth His promise (word) fail for evermore (H1775- generations)?

 77:9  Hath God forgotten to be gracious (merciful)? hath He in anger shut up His tender mercies? Selah.

 77:10  And I said, This is my infirmity (grief): but I will remember the years of the right hand (power) of the most High (Elyon).

 77:11  I will remember the works of Yahweh (Deeds of Yah): surely I will remember Your wonders of old.

 77:12  I will meditate also of all Your work, and talk (speak) of Your doings.

 77:13  Your way (the way of life), O God, is in the sanctuary: who is so great a God as our God?

 77:14  You art the God that doest wonders: You hast declared Your strength among the people.

 77:15  You hast with Your arm redeemed Your people, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.

 77:16  The waters saw You, O God, the waters saw You; they were afraid: the depths also were troubled.

 77:17  The clouds poured out water: the skies sent out a sound: Your arrows also went abroad.

 77:18  The voice of Your thunder was in the heaven (stormwind): the lightnings lightened the world: the earth (land) trembled and shook.

 77:19  Your way is in the sea, and Your path in the great waters, and Your footsteps are not known.

 77:20  You leddest Your people like a flock by the hand of Moses and Aaron.



Psalm 78:1  Maschil (Instructive) of Asaph. Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

 78:2  I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings (riddles) of old:

 78:3  Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

 78:4  We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of Yahweh, and His strength, and His wonderful works that He hath done.

 78:5  For He established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:

 78:6  That the generation to come might know them, even the children which should be born; who should arise and declare them to their children:

 78:7  That they might set their hope (confidence) in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep His commandments:

 78:8  And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation that set not their heart aright (faithful), and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.

 78:9  The children of Ephraim, being armed, and carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.

 78:10  They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in His law;

 78:11  And forgat His works, and His wonders that He had shewed them.

 78:12  Marvellous things did He in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.

See Exodus 7:8-12:32.

 78:13  He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and He made the waters to stand as an heap.   (Ex 14:21-22)

 78:14  In the daytime also He led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.  (Ex 13:21-22)

 78:15  He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave them drink as out of the great depths.

 78:16  He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers. (Ex 17:1-7, Num 20:2-13)(Wis 16:1-19:22)

 78:17  And they sinned yet more against Him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.

 78:18  And they tempted (tested) God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.

 78:19  Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?

 78:20  Behold, He smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can He give bread also? can He provide flesh for His people?

 78:21  Therefore Yahweh heard this, and was wroth (provoked to anger): so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;

 78:22  Because they believed not (did not have confidence) in God, and trusted (confided) not in His salvation:

 78:23  Though He had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven (the sky),

 78:24  And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn (grain) of heaven (the sky).   (Ex 16:4,16  Wis 16:20-29  John 6:31)

 78:25  Man did eat angels' food (bread of the mighty): He sent them meat (food) to the full (in abundance).

 78:26  He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven (sky): and by His power He brought in the south wind.

 78:27  He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:

 78:28  And He let it fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.

 78:29  So they did eat, and were well filled: for He gave them their own desire;

 78:30  They were not estranged from their lust (not tired of the food). But while their meat was yet in their mouths,

 78:31  The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.   (Ex 16:2-15  Num 11:4-23,31-35)

Men is in italics, meaning it was added. It should read young men (H970).

The fattest refers to the strongest, most influential.

 78:32  For all this they sinned still, and believed not for His wondrous works.

 78:33  Therefore their days did He consume in vanity (emptiness), and their years in trouble (sudden terror).

 78:34  When He slew them, then they sought Him: and they returned (changed their ways) and enquired early (sought) after God.

 78:35  And they remembered that God was their rock, and the high God their redeemer.

 78:36  Nevertheless they did flatter Him with their mouth, and they lied unto Him with their tongues.

 78:37  For their heart was not right (faithful) with Him, neither were they stedfast in His covenant.

Acts 8:21  Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for your heart is not right in the sight of God.

 78:38  But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned He His anger away, and did not stir up all His wrath.

 78:39  For He remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.

 78:40  How oft did they provoke (disobey) Him in the wilderness, and grieve Him in the desert!

 78:41  Yea, they turned back and tempted (tested) God, and limited (vexed) the Holy One of Israel.

 78:42  They remembered not His hand, nor the day when He delivered them from the enemy.

 78:43  How He had wrought His signs in Egypt, and His wonders in the field of Zoan:   (Ex 7:17-21)

 78:44  And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods (streams), that they could not drink.

 78:45  He sent divers sorts of flies (mosquitoes) among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.   (Ex 8:1-6,20-24)

 78:46  He gave also their increase (crops) unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.   (Ex 10:12-15)

 78:47  He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.

 78:48  He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.   (Ex 9:22-25)

 78:49  He cast upon them the fierceness of His anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil (destroying) angels among them.

 78:50  He made (cleansed) a way (path) to (for) His anger; He spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

 78:51  And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of their strength (best of their manhood) in the tabernacles of Ham:  

Exodus 12:29  And it came to pass, that at midnight Yahweh smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.

 78:52  But made His own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

 78:53  And He led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their (hated) enemies.   (Ex 14:26-28)

 78:54  And He brought them to the border of His sanctuary, even to this mountain, which His right hand had purchased.   (Ex 15:17  Josh 3:14-17)

 78:55  He cast out the heathen (nations) also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line (region), and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.   (Josh 11:16-23)

 78:56  Yet they tempted (tested) and provoked (disobeyed) the most high God, and kept not His testimonies:   (Jud 2:11-15)

 78:57  But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.

Bow of deception.

Hosea 7:16  They return, but not to the most High: they are like a deceitful bow: their princes shall fall by the sword for the rage of their tongue: this shall be their derision in the land of Egypt.

 78:58  For they provoked Him to anger with their high places, and moved Him to jealousy with their graven images.

Worshiped false gods.

 78:59  When God heard this, He was wroth (raged), and greatly abhorred Israel:

 78:60  So that He forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent which He placed among men (Adam);

Joshua 18:1  And the whole congregation of the children of Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was subdued before them.

Jeremiah 7:12-14

12  But go you now unto My place which was in Shiloh, where I set My name at the first, and see what I did to it for the wickedness of My people Israel.

13  And now, because you have done all these works, saith Yahweh, and I spake unto you, rising up early and speaking, but you heard not; and I called you, but you answered not;

14  Therefore will I do unto this house, which is called by My name, wherein you trust, and unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done to Shiloh.

26:6  Then will I make this house like Shiloh, and will make this city a curse to all the nations of the earth.

 78:61  And delivered His strength into captivity, and His glory into the enemy's hand.   (1Sa 4:4-22)

 78:62  He gave His people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with His inheritance.

Strength, glory, and inheritance are all metaphors for Israel.

 78:63  The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.

 78:64  Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.

 78:65  Then Yahweh awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.

 78:66  And He smote His enemies in the hinder parts: He put them to a perpetual reproach (scorn).

 78:67  Moreover He refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:

 78:68  But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which He loved.

 78:69  And He built His sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth (land) which He hath established for ever.

 78:70  He chose David also His servant, and took Him from the sheepfolds:

 78:71  From following the ewes great with young He brought him to feed Jacob His people, and Israel His inheritance.   (1Sa 16:11-12  2Sa 7:8  1Chr 17:7)

 78:72  So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.



Psalm 79:1  A Psalm of Asaph. O God, the heathen (nations) are come into Your inheritance; Your holy temple have they defiled; they have laid Jerusalem on heaps.   (2Ki 25:8-10  2Chr 36:17-19  Jer 52:12-14)

 79:2  The dead bodies of Your servants have they given to be meat unto the fowls of the heaven (sky), the flesh of Your saints unto the beasts (living creatures) of the earth (land).

 79:3  Their blood have they shed like water round about Jerusalem; and there was none to bury them.

 79:4  We are become a reproach (taunt) to our neighbours, a scorn and derision to them that are round about us.

 79:5  How long, YAHWEH? wilt You be angry for ever? shall Your jealousy burn like fire?

 79:6  Pour out Your wrath upon the heathen (nations) that have not known You, and upon the kingdoms that have not called upon Your name.

 79:7  For they have devoured Jacob, and laid waste his dwelling place.

 79:8  O remember not against us former iniquities (idol worship): let Your tender mercies speedily prevent us: for we are brought very low.

3Maccabees 2:20  Let Your mercies quickly go before us. Grant us peace, that the cast down and broken hearted may praise You with their mouth.

 79:9  Help us, O God of our salvation, for the glory of Your name: and deliver us, and purge away our sins, for Your name's sake.  YAHWEH

 79:10  Wherefore should the heathen (nations) say, Where is their God? let Him be known among the heathen (nations) in our sight by the revenging of the blood of Your servants which is shed.

 79:11  Let the sighing of the prisoner come before You; according to the greatness of Your power preserve You those that are appointed to die;

Septuagint has: “...preserve the sons of the slain ones.”

Groans of the prisoner (those held in captivity, and subjected to harsh treatment) , according to the Greatness of Your Power (H2220 arm) preserve (H3498) those that are (literally - sons of destruction - 1121/8456). The "sons of destruction" is a poetic form of those that thought they would die in the harsh captivity. This is poetry put to music, and is beseeching Yahweh to have mercy on them.

 79:12  And render unto our neighbours sevenfold into their bosom their reproach (taunt), wherewith they have reproached (taunted) You, O Yahweh.

 79:13  So we Your people and sheep of Your pasture will give You thanks for ever: we will shew forth Your praise to all generations.



Psalm 80:1  To the chief Musician upon Shoshannimeduth (Lilies of the Covenant), A Psalm of Asaph. Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, You that leadest Joseph like a flock; You that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth.

Exodus 25:22  And there I will meet with you, and I will commune with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give you in commandment unto the children of Israel.

 80:2  Before (In the sight of) Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up Your strength, and come and save us.

 80:3  Turn us again (Restore us), O God, and cause Your face to shine; and we shall be saved.

 80:4  O YAHWEH God of hosts, how long wilt You be angry against the prayer of Your people?

 80:5  You feedest them with the bread of tears; and givest them tears to drink in great measure.

 80:6  You makest us a strife (as a contention) unto our neighbours: and our (hated) enemies laugh among themselves.

 80:7  Turn us again (Restore us), O God of hosts, and cause Your face to shine; and we shall be saved.

 80:8  You hast brought a vine out of Egypt: You hast cast out the heathen (nations), and planted it.

Vine is a metaphor for Israel.

 80:9  You preparedst room before it (You turned Your face toward it), and didst cause it to take deep root, and it filled the land.

 80:10  The hills were covered with the shadow of it, and the boughs thereof were like the goodly cedars.

Boughs is a metaphor for each tribe of Israel. The tribes traveled by ship to distant lands. Europe and eventually America.

 80:11  She sent out her boughs unto the sea, and her branches (young shoots) unto the river.

 80:12  Why hast You then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her?

Broken down her hedges means taken away her protection.

 80:13  The boar out of the wood doth waste it (the vine), and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

Alien nations take away her strength. This same thing is happening in America today.

 80:14  Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts: look down from heaven (sky), and behold, and visit this vine;

 80:15  And the vineyard (root) which Your right hand hath planted, and the branch (son) that You madest strong for Yourself.

The Hebrew has root where the KJV put vineyard. The root is Jesse.

And branch should be son. The son is David.

 80:16  It is burned with fire, it is cut down: they perish at the rebuke of Your countenance (presence).

 80:17  Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, upon the son of man (Adam) whom You madest strong for Yourself.   David

 80:18  So will not we go back from You: quicken us (give us life), and we will call upon Your name.

 80:19  Turn us again, O YAHWEH God of hosts, cause Your face to shine; and we shall be saved.

Cause Your face to shine means look upon us favorably.



Psalm 81:1  To the chief Musician upon Gittith (Gittite harp), A Psalm of Asaph. Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.

 81:2  Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.

 81:3  Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed (full moon), on our solemn feast day.

Numbers 10:10  Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, you shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am Yahweh your God.

 81:4  For this was a statute for Israel, and a law (judgment) of the God of Jacob.

 81:5  This He ordained (appointed) in Joseph for a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: where I heard a language that I understood not.

 81:6  I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.

Hebrew: 6  I removed the burden from his shoulder: his hands were passed over from the baskets.

 81:7  You calledst in trouble, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder: I proved you at the waters of Meribah. Selah.

Exodus 17:7  And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted Yahweh, saying, Is Yahweh among us, or not?

Numbers 20:13  This is the water of Meribah; because the children of Israel strove with Yahweh, and He was sanctified in them.

 81:8  Hear, O My people, and I will testify unto you: O Israel, if you wilt hearken unto Me;

 81:9  There shall no strange god be in you; neither shalt you worship any strange god.

Exodus 20:3-4

3  Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.

4  Thou shalt not make unto you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in the sky above, or that is in the land beneath, or that is in the water under the land:

 81:10  I am Yahweh your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt: open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.

 81:11  But My people would not hearken to My voice; and Israel would (desired) none of Me.

 81:12  So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsels.

 81:13  Oh that My people had hearkened unto Me, and Israel had walked in My ways!

 81:14  I should soon have subdued their (hated) enemies, and turned My hand against their adversaries.

 81:15  The haters of Yahweh should have submitted themselves unto Him: but their time (of their doom) should have (will) endured for ever.

 81:16  He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied you.

Hebrew: 16  I fed you with the finest wheat: and satisfied you with honey from the rock.



Psalm 82:1  A Psalm of Asaph. God standeth in the congregation of the mighty (divine); He judgeth (rules) among the gods.

 82:2  How long will you judge unjustly, and accept the persons (bear the presence) of the wicked? Selah.

 82:3  Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

 82:4  Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked.

 82:5  They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth (land) are out of course (are shaking).

 82:6  I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

John 10:34  Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?

 82:7  But you shall die like men (Adam), and fall like one of the princes.

 82:8  Arise, O God, judge the earth (land): for You shalt inherit all nations.

Here in Psalm 82 we are told that we are 'Gods' (translated from the Hebrew word Elohiym which is plural) and the 'children of the Most High'. What the psalm says and Christ confirmed is that we are 'Elohiym' – the family of the Creator. Elohiym is the plural name of El the Almighty. El is the name by which the 'Almighty' was known to all the Patriarchs up to Moses. It is equivalent of a sir name and is reflected in the names of such great prophets as Samuel, Ezekiel, Daniel, and Joel. These men were all of Israel, descended from Adam who was the son of El and the first of the Elohiym to be created the natural man of Genesis 1:26 and Psalm 10:18 and all the 'host' of the heavens and the earth, under the directorship of Yahshua Christ (John 1:1-3). Christ was the elder brother of the Elohiym and had come to redeem His brethren who were in flesh and blood bodies (Heb 2:9-11).



Psalm 83:1  A Song or Psalm of Asaph. Keep not You silence, O God: hold not Your peace, and be not still, O God.

 83:2  For, lo, Your (hated) enemies make a tumult: and they that hate You have lifted up the head.

Exalted themselves.

 83:3  They have taken crafty counsel against Your people, and consulted (conspired) against Your hidden ones.

 83:4  They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.

 83:5  For they have consulted (conspired) together with one consent: they are confederate against You:

 83:6  The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

 83:7  Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

 83:8  Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen (helped) the children of Lot. Selah.

 83:9  Do unto them as unto the Midianites; as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the brook of Kison:

 83:10  Which perished at Endor: they became as dung for the earth (ground).

Dung for the ground refers to bodies left on the ground.

 83:11  Make their nobles like Oreb, and like Zeeb: yea, all their princes as Zebah, and as Zalmunna:

Judges 7:25  And they took two princes of the Midianites, Oreb and Zeeb; and they slew Oreb upon the rock Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian, and brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon on the other side Jordan.

8:12  And when Zebah and Zalmunna fled, he pursued after them, and took the two kings of Midian, Zebah and Zalmunna, and discomfited all the host.

 83:12  Who said, Let us take to ourselves the houses of God in possession.

 83:13  O my God, make them like a wheel (whirl); as the stubble before the wind.

 83:14  As the fire burneth a wood, and as the flame setteth the mountains on fire;

 83:15  So persecute them with Your tempest, and make them afraid with Your storm.

 83:16  Fill their faces with shame; that they may seek Your name, O YAHWEH.

 83:17  Let them be confounded (put to shame) and troubled for ever; yea, let them be put to shame (disgraced), and perish (destroyed):

 83:18  That men may know that You, whose name alone is YAHWEH, art the most high over all the earth (land).



Psalm 84:1  To the chief Musician upon Gittith (Gittite harp), A Psalm for the sons of Korah. How amiable (beloved) are Your tabernacles, O YAHWEH of hosts!

 84:2  My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of Yahweh: my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.

 84:3  Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even Your altars, O YAHWEH of hosts, my King, and my God.

The bird in verse 3 is metaphorical Israel. Altars is metaphorical for her nests.

 84:4  Blessed are they that dwell in Your house: they will be still praising You. Selah.

 84:5  Blessed is the man (Adam) whose strength is in You; in whose heart are the ways of them.

The ways of them is the way of life lived by the righteous.

 84:6  Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.

The Hebrew ends as: “...the early rain also covers it with blessings.”

 84:7  They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.

 84:8  O YAHWEH God of hosts, hear my prayer: give ear, O God of Jacob. Selah.

 84:9  Behold, O God our shield, and look upon the face of Your anointed.

 84:10  For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

 84:11  For Yahweh God is a sun and shield: Yahweh will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly.

 84:12  O YAHWEH of hosts, blessed is the man (Adam) that trusteth in You.



Psalm 85:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm for the sons of Korah. YAHWEH, You hast been favourable unto Your land: You hast brought back the captivity of Jacob.

 85:2  You hast forgiven the iniquity of Your people, You hast covered all their sin. Selah.

 85:3  You hast taken away all Your wrath: You hast turned Yourself from the fierceness of Your anger.

 85:4  Turn us (Restore us), O God of our salvation, and cause Your anger toward us to cease.

 85:5  Wilt You be angry with us for ever? wilt You draw out Your anger to all generations?

 85:6  Wilt You not revive us again: that Your people may rejoice in You?

 85:7  Shew us Your mercy, O YAHWEH, and grant us Your salvation.

 85:8  I will hear what God Yahweh will speak: for He will speak peace unto His people, and to His saints: but let them not turn again to folly (foolishness).

 85:9  Surely His salvation is nigh them that fear Him; that glory may dwell in our land.

 85:10  Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.

 85:11  Truth shall spring out of the earth (land); and righteousness shall look down from heaven (the sky).

 85:12  Yea, Yahweh shall give that which is good; and our land shall yield her increase.

 85:13  Righteousness shall go before Him; and shall set us in the way of His steps.

The way refers to the “way of life”, and metaphorically, Israel would follow Yahweh's path of righteousness.



Psalm 86:1  A Prayer of David. Bow down Your ear, O YAHWEH, hear (answer) me: for I am poor and needy.

 86:2  Preserve my soul (life); for I am holy: O You my God, save Your servant that trusteth in You.

 86:3  Be merciful unto me, O Yahweh: for I cry unto You daily.

 86:4  Rejoice the soul of Your servant: for unto You, O Yahweh, do I lift up my soul.

 86:5  For You, Yahweh, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon You.

 86:6  Give ear, O YAHWEH, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications.

 86:7  In the day of my trouble I will call upon You: for You wilt answer me.

 86:8  Among the gods (divine ones) there is none like unto You, O Yahweh; neither are there any works like unto Your works.

 86:9  All nations whom You hast made shall come and worship before You, O Yahweh; and shall glorify Your name.

Revelation 15:4  Who shall not fear you, O Yahweh, and glorify your name? for you only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before you; for your judgments are made manifest.

 86:10  For You art great, and doest wondrous things: You art God alone.

 86:11  Teach me Your way, O YAHWEH; I will walk in Your truth: unite my heart to fear (revere) Your name.

Again, “way of life”.

 86:12  I will praise You, O Yahweh my God, with all my heart: and I will glorify (honor) Your name for evermore.

 86:13  For great is Your mercy toward me: and You hast delivered my soul from the lowest hell (the grave, the land of the dead).

 86:14  O God, the proud (arrogant) are risen against me, and the assemblies of violent men have sought after my soul (life); and have not set You before them.

They are not Yahweh worshipers.

 86:15  But You, O Yahweh, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.

 86:16  O turn unto me, and have mercy upon me; give Your strength unto Your servant, and save the son of Your handmaid.

 86:17  Shew me a token for good (sign of favor); that they which hate me may see it, and be ashamed: because You, YAHWEH, hast holpen me, and comforted me.



Psalm 87:1  A Psalm or Song for the sons of Korah. His foundation is in the holy mountains.

 87:2  Yahweh loveth the gates of Zion more than all the dwellings of Jacob.

 87:3  Glorious things are spoken of you, O city of God. Selah.

 87:4  I will make mention of Rahab (epithet for Egypt) and Babylon to them that know me: behold Philistia, and Tyre, with Ethiopia (Cush); this man was born there.

 87:5  And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was born in her: and the Highest Himself shall establish her.

 87:6  Yahweh shall count, when He writeth up (the record of) the people, that this man was born there. Selah.

 87:7  As well the singers as the players on instruments (of pipes) shall be there: all my springs are in you.



Psalm 88:1  A Song or Psalm for the sons of Korah, to the chief Musician upon Mahalath (sickness) Leannoth (depression), Maschil (instructive) of Heman the Ezrahite. O YAHWEH God of my salvation, I have cried day and night before You:

 88:2  Let my prayer come before You: incline Your ear unto my cry;

 88:3  For my soul is full of troubles (evils): and my life draweth nigh unto the grave.

Troubles is H7451, and always refers to bad or negative. Bad, evil, unpleasant, wicked, distress, injury, calamity, etc.  

 88:4  I am counted with them that go down into the pit: I am as a (mighty) man that hath no strength:

 88:5  Free among the dead, like the slain that lie in the grave, whom You rememberest no more: and they are cut off from Your hand.

 88:6  You hast laid me in the lowest pit, in darkness, in the deeps.

Darkness is inescapable grave. Deeps is perilous circumstances.

 88:7  Your wrath lieth hard upon me, and You hast afflicted me with all Your waves. Selah.

 88:8  You hast put away mine acquaintance far from me; You hast made me an abomination unto them: I am shut up, and I cannot come forth.

 88:9  Mine eye mourneth by reason of affliction: YAHWEH, I have called daily upon You, I have stretched out my hands unto You.

 88:10  Wilt You shew wonders to the dead? shall the dead arise and praise You? Selah.

 88:11  Shall Your lovingkindness be declared in the grave? or Your faithfulness in destruction (place of death)?

 88:12  Shall Your wonders be known in the dark? and Your righteousness in the land of forgetfulness?

Land of forgetfulness has the connotation of being dead and in the grave.

 88:13  But unto You have I cried, O YAHWEH; and in the morning shall my prayer prevent (come before) You.

 88:14  YAHWEH, why castest You off my soul? why hidest You Your face from me?

 88:15  I am afflicted and ready to die from my youth up: while I suffer Your terrors I am distracted (in despair).

 88:16  Your fierce wrath goeth over me; Your terrors have cut me off.

 88:17  They came round about me daily like water; they compassed me about together.

 88:18  Lover and friend hast You put far from me, and mine acquaintance into darkness.



1Kings 4:31  For he (Solomon) was wiser than all men; than Ethan the Ezrahite, and Heman, and Chalcol, and Darda, the sons of Mahol: and his fame was in all nations round about.

Psalm 89:1  Maschil (Instructive) of Ethan the Ezrahite. I will sing of the mercies of Yahweh for ever: with my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.

 89:2  For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: Your faithfulness shalt You establish in the very heavens (sky).

 89:3  I have made a covenant with My chosen, I have sworn unto David My servant,

 89:4  Your seed will I establish for ever, and build up your throne to all generations. Selah.

Acts 2:30  Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him (David), that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, He would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;   (Also 2Sa 7:12-16  1Chr 17:11-14)

 89:5  And the heavens (skies) shall praise Your wonders, O YAHWEH: Your faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints.

 89:6  For who in the heaven (clouds) can be compared unto (can set things in order like) Yahweh? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto Yahweh?

The sons of the mighty. The sons are the race of Adam. The mighty refers to Yahweh.

 89:7  God is greatly to be feared (revered, held in awe) in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about Him.

 89:8  O YAHWEH God of hosts, who is a strong YAHWEH like unto You? or to Your faithfulness round about You?

 89:9  You rulest the raging of the sea: when the waves thereof arise, You stillest them.

 89:10  You hast broken Rahab in pieces, as one that is slain; You hast scattered Your (hated) enemies with Your strong arm.

Rahab is a metaphor for Egypt.

A reminder that hated is used as an emphatic description.

 89:11  The heavens (skies) are Yours, the earth (land) also is Yours: as for the world and the fulness thereof, You hast founded them.

Land is H776, not earth, and used 2505 times. World is H8398, meaning the entire globe and used only 36 times. The KJV is notorious at generalizing the word earth.

 89:12  The north and the south You hast created them: Tabor and Hermon shall rejoice in Your name.

 89:13  You hast a mighty arm: strong is Your hand, and high is Your right hand.

 89:14  Justice and judgment are the habitation (foundation) of Your throne: mercy and truth shall go before Your face (presence).

 89:15  Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O YAHWEH, in the light of Your countenance (presence).

 89:16  In Your name shall they rejoice all the day: and in Your righteousness shall they be exalted.

 89:17  For You art the glory of their strength: and in Your favour our horn shall be exalted.

 89:18  For Yahweh is our defence (refuge); and the Holy One of Israel is our king.

 89:19  Then You spakest in vision to Your holy one, and saidst, I have laid help upon one that is mighty; I have exalted one chosen (a young man) out of the people.

 89:20  I have found David My servant; with My holy oil have I anointed him:

1Samuel 13:14  But now your kingdom shall not continue: Yahweh hath sought Him a man after His own heart, and Yahweh hath commanded him to be captain over His people, because you hast not kept that which Yahweh commanded you.

16:12  And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy (a white man), and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And Yahweh said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.

Acts 13:22  And when He had removed him (Saul), He raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also He gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after Mine own heart, which shall fulfil all My will.

 89:21  With whom My hand shall be established: Mine arm also shall strengthen him.

 89:22  The (hated) enemy shall not exact upon (exact interest from) him; nor the son of wickedness afflict him.

 89:23  And I will beat down his foes before his face, and plague them that hate him.

 89:24  But My faithfulness and My mercy shall be with him: and in My name shall his horn be exalted.

 89:25  I will set his hand also in the sea, and his right hand in the rivers.

 89:26  He shall cry unto Me, You art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.

 89:27  Also I will make him My firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth (land).

Revelation 1:5  And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in His own blood,

 89:28  My mercy will I keep for him for evermore, and My covenant shall stand fast with him.

 89:29  His seed also will I make to endure for ever, and his throne as the days of heaven (the sky).

 89:30  If his children forsake My law, and walk not in My judgments;

 89:31  If they break (profane) My statutes, and keep not My commandments;

 89:32  Then will I visit their transgression with the rod, and their iniquity with stripes.

 89:33  Nevertheless My lovingkindness will I not utterly take from him, nor suffer My faithfulness to fail.

 89:34  My covenant will I not break (profane), nor alter the thing that is gone out of My lips.

 89:35  Once have I sworn by My holiness that I will not lie unto David.

 89:36  His seed shall endure for ever, and his throne as the sun before Me.

 89:37  It shall be established for ever as the moon, and as a faithful witness in heaven (the skies). Selah.

 89:38  But You hast cast off and abhorred, You hast been wroth with Your anointed.

 89:39  You hast made void the covenant of Your servant: You hast profaned his crown by casting it to the ground.

 89:40  You hast broken down all his hedges; You hast brought his strong holds to ruin.

 89:41  All that pass by the way spoil him: he is a reproach to (scorned by) his neighbours.

 89:42  You hast set up the right hand of his adversaries; You hast made all his (hated) enemies to rejoice.

 89:43  You hast also turned the (sharp) edge of his sword, and hast not made him to stand (not supported him) in the battle.

 89:44  You hast made his glory to cease, and cast his throne down to the ground.

 89:45  The days of his youth hast You shortened: You hast covered him with shame. Selah.

 89:46  How long, YAHWEH? wilt You hide yourself for ever? shall Your wrath burn like fire?

 89:47  Remember how short my time is: wherefore hast You made all men (the sons of Adam) in vain?

 89:48  What (mighty) man is he that liveth, and shall not see death? shall he deliver his soul from the hand of the grave? Selah.

 89:49  Yahweh, where are Your former lovingkindnesses, which You swarest unto David in Your truth (faithfulness)?

 89:50  Remember, Yahweh, the reproach of (taunting hurled at) Your servants; how I do bear in my bosom the reproach of all the mighty people;

 89:51  Wherewith Your (hated) enemies have reproached (taunted), O YAHWEH; wherewith they have reproached (taunted) the footsteps of Your anointed.

 89:52  Blessed be Yahweh for evermore. Amen, and Amen.



Book IV   Psalms 90-106

Psalm 90:1  A Prayer of Moses the man of God. Yahweh, You hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

 90:2  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You hadst formed the earth (land) and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You art God.

 90:3  You turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, you children of men.

Hebrew: 3  You return mortals to dust; and say, Return, you children of Adam.

 90:4  For a thousand years in Your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

2Peter 3:8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Prince as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

 90:5  You carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

 90:6  In the morning it flourisheth (is renewed), and groweth up (flourishes); in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

 90:7  For we are consumed by Your anger, and by Your wrath are we troubled (terrified).

 90:8  You hast set our iniquities before You, our secret sins in the light of Your countenance.

 90:9  For all our days are passed away in Your wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

 90:10  The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

Sirach 18:8-9

8  What is man, and whereto serveth he? what is his good, and what is his evil?

9  The number of a man's days at the most are an hundred years.

 90:11  Who knoweth the power of Your anger? even according to Your fear, so is Your wrath.

 90:12  So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

 90:13  Return, O YAHWEH, how long? and let it repent You (have pity) concerning Your servants.

 90:14  O satisfy us early with Your mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

 90:15  Make us glad according to the days wherein You hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

 90:16  Let Your work appear unto Your servants, and Your glory unto their children.

 90:17  And let the beauty of Yahweh our God be upon us: and establish You (make prosperous) the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish You it (make it prosperous).



The soldier Psalm

Psalm 91:1  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.   (Psa 27:5, 32:7)

 91:2  I will say of Yahweh, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.  (Psa 142:5)

 91:3  Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence (destructive plague).

 91:4  He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings shalt you trust (take refuge): His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

 91:5  You shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

 91:6  Nor for the pestilence (plague) that walketh (stalks) in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

 91:7  A thousand shall fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand; but it shall not come nigh you.

 91:8  Only with your eyes shalt you behold and see the reward (punishment) of the wicked.   (Mal 1:1-5; Psa 37:34)

 91:9  Because you hast made Yahweh, which is my refuge, even the most High, your habitation;

 91:10  There shall no evil befall you, neither shall any plague come nigh your dwelling.

Proverbs 12:21  There shall no evil happen to the just: but the wicked shall be filled with mischief.

 91:11  For He shall give His angels (messengers) charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.   (Psa 34:7)

Luke 4:10  For it is written, He shall give His messengers charge over you, to keep you:

 91:12  They shall bear you up in their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

Luke 4:11  And in their hands they shall bear you up, lest at any time you dash your foot against a stone. (Matt 4:6)

But the Devil leaves out the next verse when he quotes scripture. Typical Jew, quoting and misquoting scripture and leaving out the part that identifies him, his character and his origin.  

 91:13  You shalt tread upon the lion and adder (cobra): the young lion and the dragon (serpent) shalt you trample under feet.

Luke 10:19  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

 91:14  Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high (keep him safe), because he hath known My name.  YAHWEH

 91:15  He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

 91:16  With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him My salvation.

The 91st Brigade did not have one casualty during three of the bloodiest battles of WWI because they trusted in Yahweh.

The Bible records that those who did offer the soldier’s ransom, in reliance upon Yahweh’s instructions, did receive His protection in battle. In Numbers chapter 31 it is recorded that an Israelite army of 12,000 men was sent against the Midianites. They annihilated the Midianite armies and burnt the Midianite cities, quite a devastating war. Upon the return of the Israelite army we read, “And the officers which were over the thousands of the host, the captains of thousands and the captains of hundreds, came near unto Moses: and they said unto Moses, Thy servants have taken the sum of the men of war which are under our charge, and there lacketh not one man of us.”  (see also Bertrand Comparet's Soldier's Ransom)



Psalm 92:1  A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day. It is a good thing to give thanks unto Yahweh, and to sing praises unto Your name, O most High:

 92:2  To shew forth Your lovingkindness in the morning, and Your faithfulness every night,

 92:3  Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.

 92:4  For You, YAHWEH, hast made me glad through Your work: I will triumph in the works of Your hands.

 92:5  O YAHWEH, how great are Your works! and Your thoughts are very deep.

 92:6  A brutish (senseless) man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

Wisdom 13:1  Surely vain are all men by nature, who are ignorant of God, and could not out of the good things that are seen know him that is: neither by considering the works did they acknowledge the workmaster;

 92:7  When the wicked spring as the grass, and when all the workers of iniquity do flourish; it is that they shall be destroyed for ever:

 92:8  But You, YAHWEH, art most high (exalted) for evermore.

 92:9  For, lo, Your (hated) enemies, O YAHWEH, for, lo, Your (hated) enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

 92:10  But my horn shalt You exalt like the horn of an unicorn (wild ox): I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

 92:11  Mine eye also shall see my desire on mine enemies, and mine ears shall hear my desire of the wicked that rise up against me.

My desire does not belong in either places. Italics are added by the translators.

 92:12  The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

 92:13  Those that be planted in the house of Yahweh shall flourish in the courts of our God.

 92:14  They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

 92:15  To shew that Yahweh is upright: He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.



Psalm 93:1  Yahweh reigneth, He is clothed with majesty; Yahweh is clothed with strength, wherewith He hath girded Himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.

 93:2  Your throne is established of old: You art from everlasting.

 93:3  The floods (rivers) have lifted up, O YAHWEH, the floods (rivers) have lifted up their voice; the floods (rivers) lift up their waves.

 93:4  Yahweh on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.

 93:5  Your testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh (is appropriate for) Your house, O YAHWEH, for ever.



Psalm 94:1  O YAHWEH God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew Yourself.

 94:2  Lift up Yourself, You judge of the earth (land): render a reward (what is deserved) to the proud.

 94:3  YAHWEH, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?

 94:4  How long shall they utter and speak hard (insolent) things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

 94:5  They break in pieces Your people, O YAHWEH, and afflict Your heritage.

 94:6  They slay the widow and the stranger (of kin), and murder the fatherless.

 94:7  Yet they say, Yahweh shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

 94:8  Understand, you brutish among the people: and you fools, when will you be wise?

 94:9  He that planted the ear, shall He not hear? He that formed the eye, shall He not see?

See also means look, watch, regard.

 94:10  He that chastiseth the heathen (nations), shall not He correct? He that teacheth man (Adam) knowledge, shall not He know?

 94:11  Yahweh knoweth the thoughts of man (Adam), that they are vanity.

1Corinthians 3:20  And again, The Prince knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

 94:12  Blessed is the man whom You chastenest, O YAHWEH, and teachest him out of Your law;

 94:13  That You mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

 94:14  For Yahweh will not cast off His people, neither will He forsake His inheritance.

Romans 11:1  I say then, Hath God cast away His people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

11:2  God hath not cast away His people which He foreknew. Wot you not what the scripture saith of Elijah? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

11:3  Yahweh, they have killed your prophets, and digged down your altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

 94:15  But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

 94:16  Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

 94:17  Unless Yahweh had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in (the land of) silence.

Figuratively, death.

 94:18  When I said, My foot slippeth; Your mercy, O YAHWEH, held me up.

 94:19  In the multitude of my thoughts within me Your comforts delight my soul.

 94:20  Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with You, which frameth mischief by a law?

 94:21  They gather themselves together against the soul (life) of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.

 94:22  But Yahweh is my defence (stronghold); and my God is the rock of my refuge.

 94:23  And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, Yahweh our God shall cut them off.



Psalm 95:1  O come, let us sing unto Yahweh: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

 95:2  Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto Him with psalms.

 95:3  For Yahweh is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

 95:4  In His hand are the deep places of the earth (land): the strength of the hills (peaks of the mountains) is His also.

 95:5  The sea is His, and He made it: and His hands formed the dry land.

 95:6  O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before Yahweh our maker.

 95:7  For He is our God; and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. To day if you will hear (listen to) His voice,

 95:8  Harden not your heart, as in the provocation (strife), and as in the day of temptation (testing) in the wilderness:

Hebrews 3:15  While it is said, To day if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.

4:7  Again, He determines a certain day, saying in David, To day, after so long a time; as it is said, To day if you will hear His voice, harden not your hearts.

 95:9  When your fathers tempted (tested) Me, proved Me, and saw My work. (Ex 17:1-7 Num 20:2-13)

 95:10  Forty years long was I grieved with this generation, and said, It is a people that do err in their heart, and they have not known My ways:

 95:11  Unto whom I sware in My wrath that they should not enter into My rest.

Hebrews 3:7-11  Wherefore (as the Holy Spirit saith, To day if you will hear His voice,

8  Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of testing in the wilderness:

9  When your fathers tested Me, proved Me, and saw My works forty years.

10  Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known My ways.

11  So I sware in My wrath, They shall not enter into My rest.)

Numbers 14:20-23

20  And Yahweh said, I have pardoned according to your word:

21  But as truly as I live, all the land shall be filled with the glory of Yahweh.

22  Because all those men which have seen My glory, and My miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tested Me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to My voice;

23  Surely they shall not see the land which I sware unto their fathers, neither shall any of them that provoked Me see it:

Deuteronomy 1:34-36

34  And Yahweh heard the voice of your words, and was wroth, and sware, saying,

35  Surely there shall not one of these men of this evil generation see that good land, which I sware to give unto your fathers,

36  Save Caleb the son of Jephunneh (and Joshua); he shall see it, and to him will I give the land that he hath trodden upon, and to his children, because he hath wholly followed Yahweh.

Hebrews 4:3  For we which have believed do enter into rest, as He said, As I have sworn in My wrath, if they shall enter into My rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

Deuteronomy 12:9-10

9  For you are not as yet come to the rest and to the inheritance, which Yahweh your God giveth you.

10  But when you go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which Yahweh your God giveth you to inherit, and when He giveth you rest from all your hated enemies round about, so that you dwell in safety;



Psalm 96:1  O sing unto Yahweh a new song: sing unto Yahweh, all the earth (land).

 96:2  Sing unto Yahweh, bless His name; shew forth (announce) His salvation from day to day.

 96:3  Declare His glory among the heathen (nations), His wonders among all people.

 96:4  For Yahweh is great, and greatly to be praised: He is to be feared (revered) above all gods.

 96:5  For all the gods of the nations are idols: but Yahweh made the heavens (sky).

 96:6  Honour and majesty are before Him: strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.

 96:7  Give unto Yahweh, O you kindreds of the people, give unto Yahweh glory and strength.

 96:8  Give unto Yahweh the glory due unto His name: bring an offering, and come into His courts.

 96:9  O worship Yahweh in the beauty of holiness: (shake with) fear before Him, all the earth (land).

 96:10  Say among the heathen (nations) that Yahweh reigneth: the world also shall be established that it shall not be moved: He shall judge the people righteously.

 96:11  Let the heavens (sky) rejoice, and let the earth (land) be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.

 96:12  Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

 96:13  Before (In the presence of) Yahweh: for He cometh, for He cometh to judge the earth (land): He shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with His truth.



Psalm 97:1  Yahweh reigneth; let the earth (land) rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

 97:2  Clouds and darkness (Dark clouds) are round about Him: righteousness and judgment (justice) are the habitation (foundation) of His throne.

 97:3  A fire goeth before Him, and burneth up His enemies round about.

 97:4  His lightnings enlightened (light up) the world: the earth (land) saw, and trembled.

 97:5  The hills melted like wax at the presence of Yahweh, at the presence of Yahweh of the whole earth (land).

 97:6  The heavens (sky) declares His righteousness, and all the people see His glory.

 97:7  Confounded be (Be ashamed) all they (you) that serve graven images, that boast themselves of idols: worship Him, all you gods.

 97:8  Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of Your judgments, O YAHWEH.

Daughters is a metaphor for towns. Zion is also a metaphor for Israel.

 97:9  For You, YAHWEH, art high above all the earth (land): You art exalted far above all gods.

 97:10  You that love Yahweh, hate evil: He preserveth (guards) the souls (lives) of His saints; He delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.

 97:11  Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.

 97:12  Rejoice in Yahweh, you righteous; and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness.



Psalm 98:1  A Psalm. O sing unto Yahweh a new song; for He hath done marvellous things: His right hand, and His holy arm, hath gotten Him the victory.

Revelation 14:1  And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with Him an hundred forty and four thousand, having His Father's name written in their foreheads.

14:2  And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

14:3  And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

 98:2  Yahweh hath made known His salvation (victory): His righteousness (vindication) hath He openly shewed in the sight of the heathen (nations).

 98:3  He hath remembered His mercy and His truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth (land) have seen the salvation (victory) of our God.

 98:4  Make a joyful noise unto Yahweh, all the earth (land): make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.

 98:5  Sing unto Yahweh with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.

 98:6  With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before Yahweh, the King.

 98:7  Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

 98:8  Let the floods (rivers) clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together

 98:9  Before (At the presence of) Yahweh; for He cometh to judge the earth (land): with righteousness shall He judge the world, and the people with equity.



Psalm 99:1  Yahweh reigneth; let the people tremble: He sitteth between the cherubims; let the earth (land) be moved (shake).

Exodus 25:22  And there I will meet with you, and I will commune with you from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubims which are upon the ark of the testimony, of all things which I will give you in commandment unto the children of Israel.

 99:2  Yahweh is great in Zion; and He is high (exalted) above all the people.

 99:3  Let them praise Your great and terrible (awesome) name; for it is holy.

 99:4  The king's strength also loveth judgment (justice); You dost establish equity, You executest judgment and righteousness in Jacob.

 99:5  Exalt you Yahweh our God, and worship at His footstool; for He is holy.

 99:6  Moses and Aaron among His priests, and Samuel among them that call upon His name; they called upon Yahweh, and He answered them.

 99:7  He spake unto them in the cloudy pillar: they kept His testimonies, and the ordinance that He gave them.

Exodus 33:9  And it came to pass, as Moses entered into the tabernacle, the cloudy pillar descended, and stood at the door of the tabernacle, and Yahweh talked with Moses.

 99:8  You answeredst them, O YAHWEH our God: You wast a God that forgavest them, though You tookest vengeance of their inventions (misdeeds).

 99:9  Exalt Yahweh our God, and worship at His holy hill; for Yahweh our God is holy.



Psalm 100:1  A Psalm of praise. Make a joyful noise unto Yahweh, all you lands.

 100:2  Serve Yahweh with gladness: come before His presence with singing.

 100:3  Know you that Yahweh He is God: it is He that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are His people, and the sheep of His pasture.

 100:4  Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name.

 100:5  For Yahweh is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endureth to all generations.  



Psalm 101:1  A Psalm of David. I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto You, O YAHWEH, will I sing.

 101:2  I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt You come unto me? I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.

 101:3  I will set no wicked (worthless) thing before mine eyes: I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.

 101:4  A froward (crooked) heart shall depart from me: I will not know (associate with) a wicked person.

 101:5  Whoso privily slandereth his neighbour, him will I cut off: him that hath an high look and a proud (arrogant) heart will not I suffer.

 101:6  Mine eyes shall be upon the faithful of the land, that they may dwell with me: he that walketh in a perfect way, he shall serve me.

 101:7  He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

 101:8  I will early destroy all the wicked of the land; that I may cut off all wicked doers from the city of Yahweh.



Psalm 102:1  A Prayer of the afflicted, when he is overwhelmed, and poureth out his complaint before Yahweh. Hear my prayer, O YAHWEH, and let my cry come unto You.

 102:2  Hide not Your face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline Your ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.

 102:3  For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth.

 102:4  My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread.

 102:5  By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.

 102:6  I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.

 102:7  I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.

 102:8  Mine (hated) enemies reproach (taunt) me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me.

 102:9  For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping,

 102:10  Because of Your indignation and Your wrath: for You hast lifted me up, and cast me down.

 102:11  My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.

 102:12  But You, O YAHWEH, shalt endure for ever; and Your remembrance unto all generations.

 102:13  You shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set (appointed) time, is come.

 102:14  For Your servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof.

 102:15  So the heathen (nations) shall fear the name of Yahweh, and all the kings of the earth (land) Your glory.

 102:16  When Yahweh shall build up Zion, He shall appear in His glory.

 102:17  He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer.

 102:18  This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise Yahweh.

 102:19  For He hath looked down from the height of His sanctuary; from heaven (the sky) did Yahweh behold the earth (land);

 102:20  To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death;

 102:21  To declare the name of Yahweh in Zion, and His praise in Jerusalem;

 102:22  When the people are gathered together, and the kingdoms, to serve Yahweh.

Serve is worship service only, not regular daily work.

 102:23  He weakened (afflicted) my strength in the way; He shortened my days.

 102:24  I said, O my God, take me not away in the midst of my days: Your years are throughout all generations.

 102:25  Of old hast You laid the foundation of the earth (land): and the heavens (skies) are the work of Your hands.

 102:26  They shall perish, but You shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt You change them, and they shall be changed (cut off):

 102:27  But You art the same, and Your years shall have no end.

Hebrews 1:10-12

10  And, Thou, Yahweh, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the land; and the skies are the works of your hands:

11  They shall perish; but you remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;

12  And as a vesture shalt you fold them up, and they shall be changed: but you art the same, and your years shall not fail.

 102:28  The children of Your servants shall continue, and their seed shall be established before You.



Psalm 103:1  A Psalm of David. Bless Yahweh, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name.

 103:2  Bless Yahweh, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:

 103:3  Who forgiveth all your iniquities; who healeth all your diseases;

 103:4  Who redeemeth your life from destruction; who crowneth you with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

 103:5  Who satisfieth your mouth with good things; so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.

The older Hebrew reads:  “Who satisfies you with good things...”

 103:6  Yahweh executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

 103:7  He made known His ways unto Moses, His acts unto the children of Israel.

 103:8  Yahweh is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

James 5:11  Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Prince; that the Prince is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

 103:9  He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger for ever.

 103:10  He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

 103:11  For as the heaven (sky) is high above the earth (land), so great is His mercy toward them that fear (hold in awe) Him.

 103:12  As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.

 103:13  Like as a father pitieth (has compassion for) his children, so Yahweh pitieth them that fear Him.

3Maccabees 7:6  For this cause we severely threatened them; yet, with the clemency which we are wont to extend to all men, we at length permitted them to live. Finding that the God of heaven cast a shield of protection over the Judahites so as to preserve them, and that He fought for them as a father always fights for his sons;

 103:14  For He knoweth our frame (forming); He remembereth that we are dust.

Genesis 2:7  And Yahweh God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

 103:15  As for man (mortals), his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

 103:16  For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

 103:17  But the mercy of Yahweh is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him, and His righteousness unto children's children;

 103:18  To such as keep His covenant, and to those that remember His commandments to do them.

 103:19  Yahweh hath prepared His throne in the heavens (skies); and His kingdom ruleth over all.

 103:20  Bless Yahweh, you His angels (messengers), that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word.

 103:21  Bless you Yahweh, all you His hosts; you ministers of His, that do His pleasure (will).

 103:22  Bless Yahweh, all His works in all places of His dominion: bless Yahweh, O my soul.



Psalm 104:1  Bless Yahweh, O my soul. O YAHWEH my God, You art very great; You art clothed with honour and majesty.

 104:2  Who coverest yourself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens (skies) like a curtain:

 104:3  Who layeth the beams of His chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds His chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:

 104:4  Who maketh His angels spirits; His ministers a flaming fire:

Hebrew begins verse 4 as, “Who makes the wind His messenger;...”

 104:5  Who laid the foundations of the earth (land), that it should not be removed for ever.

 104:6  You coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

 104:7  At Your rebuke they fled; at the voice of Your thunder they hasted away.

 104:8  They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which You hast founded (established) for them.

 104:9  You hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth (land).

 104:10  He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

 104:11  They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

 104:12  By them shall the fowls of the heaven (sky) have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

 104:13  He watereth the hills from His chambers: the earth (land) is satisfied with the fruit of Your works.

 104:14  He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man (Adam): that he may bring forth food out of the earth (ground);

 104:15  And wine that maketh glad the heart of man (mortals), and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's (mortal's) heart.

 104:16  The trees of Yahweh are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which He hath planted;

 104:17  Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

 104:18  The high hills (mountains) are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

 104:19  He appointed the moon for seasons (appointed times): the sun knoweth his going down (when to set).

 104:20  You makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

 104:21  The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.

 104:22  The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.

 104:23  Man (Adam) goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

 104:24  O YAHWEH, how manifold are Your works! in wisdom hast You made them all: the earth (land) is full of Your riches.

 104:25  So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

 104:26  There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom You hast made to play therein.

 104:27  These wait all upon You; that You mayest give them their meat in due season.

 104:28  That You givest them they gather: You openest Your hand, they are filled with good.

 104:29  You hidest Your face, they are troubled (terrified): You takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

 104:30  You sendest forth Your Spirit, they are created: and You renewest the face of the earth (land).

 104:31  The glory of Yahweh shall endure for ever: Yahweh shall rejoice in His works.

 104:32  He looketh on the earth (land), and it trembleth: He toucheth the hills (mountains), and they smoke.

 104:33  I will sing unto Yahweh as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

 104:34  My meditation of Him shall be sweet (pleasing): I will be glad in Yahweh.

 104:35  Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth (land), and let the wicked be no more. Bless You Yahweh, O my soul. Praise You Yahweh.



Psalm 105:1  O give thanks unto Yahweh; call upon His name: make known His deeds among the people.

 105:2  Sing unto Him, sing psalms unto Him: talk you of all His wondrous works.

 105:3  Glory you in His holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek Yahweh.

 105:4  Seek Yahweh, and His strength: seek His face (presence) evermore.

 105:5  Remember His marvellous works that He hath done; His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth;

 105:6  O you seed of Abraham His servant, you children of Jacob His chosen.

 105:7  He is Yahweh our God: His judgments are in all the earth (land).

 105:8  He hath remembered His covenant for ever, the word which He commanded to a thousand generations.

 105:9  Which covenant He made with Abraham, and His oath unto Isaac;

Genesis 12:7  And Yahweh appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto your seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto Yahweh, who appeared unto him.

26:3  Sojourn in this land, and I will be with you, and will bless you; for unto you, and unto your seed, I will give all these countries, and I will perform the oath which I sware unto Abraham your father;  

 105:10  And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:

 105:11  Saying, Unto you will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

Genesis 28:13  And, behold, Yahweh stood above it, and said, I am Yahweh God of Abraham your father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon you liest, to you will I give it, and to your seed;

 105:12  When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers (foreigners) in it.

 105:13  When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;

 105:14  He suffered no man (Adam) to do them wrong: yea, He reproved kings for their sakes;

 105:15  Saying, Touch not Mine anointed, and do My prophets no harm.

 105:16  Moreover He called for a famine upon the land: He brake the whole staff of bread.  (Gen 41:53-57)

 105:17  He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:   (Gen 37:28, 45:5)

 105:18  Whose feet they hurt (afflicted) with fetters: he was laid in iron:

 105:19  Until the time that his word (prophecy) came: The Word of Yahweh tried (tested) him.   (Gen 39:20-40:23)

 105:20  The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.   (Gen 41:14)

 105:21  He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:   (Gen 41:39-41)

 105:22  To bind (discipline) his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators (elders) wisdom.

 105:23  Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.   (Gen 46:6, 47:11)

 105:24  And He increased His people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

 105:25  He turned their heart to hate His people, to deal subtilly with His servants.   (Ex 1:7-14)

 105:26  He sent Moses His servant; and Aaron whom He had chosen.   (Ex 3:1-4:17)

 105:27  They shewed His signs (and words) among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.

 105:28  He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against His word.   (Ex 10:21-23)

The they are the forces of nature.

 105:29  He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.   (Ex 7:17-21)

 105:30  Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.   (Ex 8:1-6)

 105:31  He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies (mosquitoes), and lice (gnats) in all their coasts.  (Ex 8:16-17,20-24)

 105:32  He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.

 105:33  He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.  (Ex 9:22-25)

 105:34  He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillers, and that without number,

 105:35  And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground. (Ex 10:12-15)

 105:36  He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.   (Ex 12:29)

 105:37  He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

 105:38  Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.   (Ex 12:33-36)

 105:39  He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.   (Ex 13:21-22)

 105:40  The people asked, and He brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven (from the sky).   (Ex 16:2-15)

 105:41  He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.   (Ex 17:1-7  Num 20:2-13)

 105:42  For He remembered His holy promise, and Abraham His servant.

 105:43  And He brought forth His people with joy, and His chosen with gladness:

 105:44  And gave them the lands of the heathen (nations): and they inherited the labour of the people;

 105:45  That they might observe His statutes, and keep His laws. Praise you Yahweh.   (Josh 11:16-23)

The labor of the people refers to all the work the former inhabitants had done. The Israelites would take possession of all the land of the Canaanites, including all the cities they had built.



Psalm 106:1  Praise you Yahweh. O give thanks unto Yahweh; for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 106:2  Who can utter the mighty acts of Yahweh? who can shew forth (proclaim) all His praise?

 106:3  Blessed are they that keep judgment (observe justice), and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

 106:4  Remember me, O YAHWEH, with the favour that You bearest unto Your people: O visit me with Your salvation;

The Hebrew: 4  Remember me, O Yahweh, when You favor Your people: O visit me with Your salvation.

 106:5  That I may see the good of Your chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, that I may glory with Your inheritance.

 106:6  We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

 106:7  Our fathers understood not Your wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of Your mercies; but provoked him (rebelled)at the sea, even at the Red sea (Sea of Reeds).

Exodus 14:12  Is not this the word that we did tell you in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

 106:8  Nevertheless He saved them for His name's sake, that He might make His mighty power to be known.

 106:9  He rebuked the Red sea (Sea of Reeds) also, and it was dried up: so He led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.   (Ex 14:21-31)

 106:10  And He saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the (hated) enemy.

 106:11  And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.

 106:12  Then believed they His words; they sang His praise.   (Ex 15:1-21)

 106:13  They soon forgat His works; they waited not for His counsel (advice):

 106:14  But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted (tested) God in the desert.

 106:15  And He gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.   (Num 11:4-34)

Leanness is spiritual famine.

 106:16  They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of Yahweh.

 106:17  The earth (ground) opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.

 106:18  And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.   (Num 16:1-35)

 106:19  They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.

 106:20  Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

 106:21  They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

 106:22  Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible (awesome) things by the Red sea (Sea of Reeds).

 106:23  Therefore He said that He would destroy them, had not Moses His chosen stood before Him in the breach, to turn away His wrath, lest He should destroy them.   (Ex 32:1-14)

Thank you Moses.

 106:24  Yea, they despised (rejected) the pleasant land, they believed not His word:

 106:25  But murmured (complained) in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of Yahweh.

 106:26  Therefore He lifted up His hand against them, to overthrow them (make them fall) in the wilderness:   (Num 14:1-35)

 106:27  To overthrow (make fall) their seed (offspring) also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.

Leviticus 26:33  And I will scatter you among the nations, and will draw out a sword after you: and your land shall be desolate, and your cities waste.

 106:28  They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

 106:29  Thus they provoked Him to anger with their inventions (deeds): and the plague brake in upon them.

 106:30  Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed.

 106:31  And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.   (Num 25:1-18)

 106:32  They angered Him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:

 106:33  Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.   (Num 20:2-13)

 106:34  They did not destroy the nations (peoples), concerning whom Yahweh commanded them:

 106:35  But were mingled among the heathen (nations), and learned their works.

Polluted the holy seed by race mixing.

The Canaanites had many different gods, and child sacrifice was common to all of them. Rampant sexual conduct was also included, which resulted in the birth of half-breed children, thus polluting the holy seed of Israel with Canaanite blood. This was the mixed multitude which still exists today, and still claims to be Israel, but is not. The Jews are NOT Israel, they are descendants from Cain and from Esau. Jacob's descendants are the Israelites.

 106:36  And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

Judges 2:1-3

1  And an angel of Yahweh came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break My covenant with you.

2  And you shall make no league with the inhabitants of this land; you shall throw down their altars: but you have not obeyed My voice: why have you done this?

3  Wherefore I also said, I will not drive them out from before you; but they shall be as thorns in your sides, and their gods shall be a snare unto you.

3:5  And the children of Israel dwelt among the Canaanites, Hittites, and Amorites, and Perizzites, and Hivites, and Jebusites:

3:6  And they took their daughters to be their wives, and gave their daughters to their sons, and served their gods.

 106:37  Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

2Kings 17:16-17

16  And they left all the commandments of Yahweh their God, and made them molten images, even two calves, and made a grove, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served Baal (Lord).

17  And they caused their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire, and used divination and enchantments, and sold themselves to do evil in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke Him to anger.

 106:38  And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with (by) blood.

Numbers 35:33  So you shall not pollute the land wherein you are: for blood it defileth the land: and the land cannot be cleansed of the blood that is shed therein, but by the blood of him that shed it.

 106:39  Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

 106:40  Therefore was the wrath of Yahweh kindled against His people, insomuch that He abhorred His own inheritance.

 106:41  And He gave them into the hand of the heathen (nations); and they that hated them ruled over them.

 106:42  Their (hated) enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection (humbled) under their hand.

 106:43  Many times did He deliver them; but they provoked Him with their counsel (plotting), and were brought low for their iniquity.

3Maccabees 2:12  And when you didst often aid our fathers when hard pressed, and in low estate, and deliveredst them out of gret dangers,

 106:44  Nevertheless He regarded their affliction, when He heard their cry:

 106:45  And He remembered for them His covenant, and repented (had pity) according to the multitude of His mercies.

 106:46  He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.

 106:47  Save us, O YAHWEH our God, and gather us from among the heathen (nations), to give thanks unto Your holy name, and to triumph in Your praise.   (1Chr 16:35-36)

 106:48  Blessed be Yahweh God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise you Yahweh.



Book V   Psalms 107-150

The Psalms foretold the events that would follow the ordeal of the cross. That event was the breaking of the 'gates of bronze', the cutting of 'the bars of iron in sunder' and the deliverance of those that were 'prisoners of death (Psa 102:20) under the power of the 'grave' (Psa 30:3). This magnificent feat was accomplished by Yahshua Christ when He cried, 'Lift up your gates, O you princes, and be you lifted up O everlasting gates and the King of Glory whall come in' (Gospel of Nicodemus 16:1).

By allowing Himself to be crucified (a spotless sacrifice) He was able to descend into Hell (which is simply 'the grave') and 'redeem' all the righteous souls from Adam onward (Psa 49:15) thereby delivering those prisoners of death who were subjects of 'the prince of this world' (John 16:11). In doing so, Christ fulfilled the scripture in John 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live. Which explains the dead coming out of their graves in Matt 27:52-53. See also Isa 24:12-17, Zec 9:9-12 and 1Pet 3:18-19.

Christ came to keep a promise made to Adam, after the fall (see First Book of Adam and Eve, ch 3) that 'One' would come in five and one half days (5,500 years) who would free Adam and all his seed who were dead and held in spiritual bondage to Satan.

This is why Yahshua said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Psalm 107:1  O give thanks unto Yahweh, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 107:2  Let the redeemed of Yahweh say so, whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;

 107:3  And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.

 107:4  They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.

 107:5  Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.

 107:6  Then they cried unto Yahweh in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses.

 107:7  And He led them forth by the right way (straight path), that they might go to a city of habitation.

 107:8  Oh that men would praise Yahweh for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men (Adam)!

 107:9  For He satisfieth the longing (thirsty) soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.

 107:10  Such as (Some) sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, being bound in affliction and iron;

 107:11  Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned (spurned) the counsel (advise) of the most High:

 107:12  Therefore He brought down (humbled) their heart with labour; they fell down, and there was none to help.

 107:13  Then they cried unto Yahweh in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses.

 107:14  He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and brake their bands (bonds) in sunder (pieces).

 107:15  Oh that men would praise Yahweh for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men (Adam)!

 107:16  For He hath broken the gates of brass (bronze), and cut the bars of iron in sunder (pieces).

 107:17  Fools because of their transgression, and because of their iniquities, are afflicted.

 107:18  Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; and they draw near unto the gates of death.

3Maccabees 5:50-51

50  Nevertheless, when they reflected upon the succour before granted them from heaven, they prostrated themselves with one accord; removed even the sucking children from the breasts, and

51  sent up an exceeding great cry entreating Yahweh of all power to reveal Himself, and have mercy upon those who now lay at the gates of hades.

 107:19  Then they cry unto Yahweh in their trouble, and He saveth them out of their distresses.

 107:20  He sent His word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.

 107:21  Oh that men would praise Yahweh for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men (Adam)!

 107:22  And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and declare His works with rejoicing.

 107:23  They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

 107:24  These see the works of Yahweh, and His wonders in the deep.

 107:25  For He commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

 107:26  They mount up to the heaven (sky), they go down again to the depths: their soul (inner being) is melted because of trouble.


 107:27  They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end.

Wit's end should read all their skill is swallowed up. Their seamanship is useless.

 107:28  Then they cry unto Yahweh in their trouble, and He bringeth them out of their distresses.

 107:29  He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

 107:30  Then are they glad because they be quiet; so He bringeth them unto their desired haven.

 107:31  Oh that men would praise Yahweh for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men (Adam)!

 107:32  Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people, and praise Him in the assembly of the elders.

 107:33  He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;

 107:34  A fruitful land into barrenness, for (because of) the wickedness of them that dwell therein.

Sirach 39:23  As He hath turned the waters into saltness: so shall the nations inherit His wrath.

 107:35  He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.

 107:36  And there He maketh the hungry to dwell, that they may prepare a city for habitation;

 107:37  And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, which may yield fruits of increase.

 107:38  He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

 107:39  Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

 107:40  He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.

Job 12:24  He taketh away the heart of the chief of the people of the land, and causeth them to wander in a wilderness where there is no way.

 107:41  Yet setteth He the poor on high from affliction, and maketh Him families like a flock.

 107:42  The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.

 107:43  Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of Yahweh.



Psalm 108:1  A Song or Psalm of David. O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.

Even as a king, David praised Yahweh fully.

 108:2  Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

 108:3  I will praise You, O YAHWEH, among the people: and I will sing praises unto You among the nations.

 108:4  For Your mercy is great above the heavens (skies): and Your truth reacheth unto the clouds.

 108:5  Be You exalted, O God, above the heavens (skies): and Your glory above all the earth (land);

 108:6  That Your beloved may be delivered: save with Your right hand, and answer me.

 108:7  God hath spoken in His holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete (portion) out the valley of Succoth.

 108:8  Gilead is mine; Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength (refuge) of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

 108:9  Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe; over Philistia will I triumph.

 108:10  Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

 108:11  Wilt not You, O God, who hast cast us off? and wilt not You, O God, go forth with our hosts (armies)?

 108:12  Give us help from trouble: for vain (worthless) is the help (deliverance) of man (Adam).

 108:13  Through God we shall do valiantly: for He it is that shall tread down our enemies.



Psalm 109:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Hold not Your peace, O God of my praise;

 109:2  For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

 109:3  They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause.

 109:4  For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer.

Hebrew: 4  Instead of love they are my accusers: but I pray.

 109:5  And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.

Hebrew: 5  They have put evil upon me instead of good, and hatred instead of love.

 109:6  Set you a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand.

Satan also refers to accuser. Satan's children are false accusers. The descendants of Cain and Esau. These would be the Jews.

 109:7  When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin (an offense).

 109:8  Let his days be few; and let another take his office.

 109:9  Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

 109:10  Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.

Genesis 4:12-14

12  When you tillest the ground, it shall not henceforth yield unto you her strength; a fugitive and a vagabond shalt you be in the land.

13  And Cain said unto Yahweh, My punishment is greater than I can bear.

14  Behold, you hast driven me out this day from the face of the land; and from your face shall I be hid; and I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond in the land;

 109:11  Let the extortioner (creditor) catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour.

 109:12  Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.

 109:13  Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

 109:14  Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Yahweh; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

 109:15  Let them (the sins) be before Yahweh continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth (land).

 109:16  Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

 109:17  As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

 109:18  As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.

 109:19  Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.

 109:20  Let this be the reward of mine adversaries (accusers) from Yahweh, and of them that speak evil against my soul (life).

 109:21  But do You for me, O GOD Yahweh, for Your name's sake: because Your mercy is good, deliver You me.

 109:22  For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.

 109:23  I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down (shaken off) as the locust.

 109:24  My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness.

 109:25  I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.

 109:26  Help me, O YAHWEH my God: O save me according to Your mercy:

 109:27  That they may know that this is Your hand; that You, YAHWEH, hast done it.

 109:28  Let them curse, but bless You (but You will bless): when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let Your servant rejoice.

 109:29  Let mine adversaries (accusers) be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion (disgrace), as with a mantle.

 109:30  I will greatly praise Yahweh with my mouth; yea, I will praise Him among the multitude.

 109:31  For He shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul.

This entire Psalm is one major curse on David's enemies.

The “churches” teach that you should love your enemies and that you should love the sinner and hate the sin. These are NOT scriptural teachings.

We are to love the enemies of our own race, but cast them out if they do not repent and conform to Yahweh's Ways.

David clearly hates and curses his enemies of the cursed seed. Yahweh declares He will destroy and erase them in Obadiah and throughout the scriptures.


The Second Advent.

David prophesied of the period between Christ's ascension and His return to earth.

That He would be King and High Priest over the order of Melchizedek when He returned to rule.

Psalm 110:1  A Psalm of David. Yahweh said unto my Lord (Master), Sit You at My right hand, until I make Your enemies Your footstool.

Yahweh is talking about David, but is also referring to the future King Yahshua.

Matthew 22:43-45

43  He saith unto them (the Jew Pharisees), How then doth David in spirit call him Lord (Master), saying,

44  Yahweh said unto my Lord (Master), Sit you on my right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool?

45  If David then call him Lord (Master), how is he His son?

Colossians 3:1  If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

Hebrews 8:1  Now of the things which we have spoken this is the sum: We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens;

10:12  But this man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;

10:13  From henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His footstool.

 110:2  Yahweh shall send the rod of your strength out of Zion: rule you in the midst of your (hated) enemies.

The rod of strength out of Zion is Christ, a descendant of David of the tribe of Judah (figuratively Zion). David rules in the midst of Canaanites and Edomites (Jews).

 110:3  Your people shall be willing in the day of your power (strength), in the beauties (majesty) of holiness from the womb of the morning: you hast the dew of Your youth.

 110:4  Yahweh hath sworn, and will not repent (change His mind), You art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

David was a king and priest of the order of Melchizedek. Melchizedek is a preacher of righteousness. Adam was the first, Noah was the eighth, Nahor, Abraham's brother was also.

 110:5  Yahweh at your right hand shall strike through kings in the day of His wrath.

 110:6  He shall judge among the heathen (nations), he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries (lands).

 110:7  He shall drink of the brook in the way: therefore shall he lift up the head.



Psalm 111:1  Praise you Yahweh. I will praise Yahweh with my whole heart, in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.

 111:2  The works of Yahweh are great, sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.

 111:3  His work is honourable and glorious: and His righteousness endureth for ever.

 111:4  He hath made His wonderful works to be remembered: Yahweh is gracious and full of compassion.

 111:5  He hath given meat unto them that fear Him: He will ever be mindful of His covenant.

 111:6  He hath shewed His people the power of His works, that He may give them the heritage of the heathen (nations).

 111:7  The works of His hands are verity (truth) and judgment (justice); all His commandments are sure (established).

 111:8  They stand fast for ever and ever, and are done in truth and uprightness.

 111:9  He sent redemption unto His people: He hath commanded His covenant for ever: holy and reverend (awesome) is His name.

 111:10  The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of wisdom: a good (proper) understanding have all they that do His commandments: His praise endureth for ever.

Job 28:28  And unto man (Adam) He said, Behold, the fear of Yahweh, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Proverbs 1:7  The fear of Yahweh is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.



Psalm 112:1  Praise you Yahweh. Blessed is the man that feareth (reveres) Yahweh, that delighteth greatly in His commandments.

 112:2  His seed shall be mighty upon earth (land): the generation (posterity) of the upright shall be blessed.

 112:3  Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his righteousness endureth for ever.

 112:4  Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

Light is enlightenment and darkness is confusion.

 112:5  A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

Hebrew ends as: “...he will manage his business affairs with justice.”

 112:6  Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

 112:7  He shall not be afraid of evil tidings (rumors): his heart is fixed, trusting in Yahweh.

 112:8  His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he see his desire upon his enemies.

 112:9  He hath dispersed (dispersed his wealth), he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

 112:10  The wicked shall see it, and be grieved (angry); he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.



Psalm 113:1  Praise you Yahweh. Praise, O you servants of Yahweh, praise the name of Yahweh.

 113:2  Blessed be the name of Yahweh from this time forth and for evermore.

 113:3  From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same Yahweh's name is to be praised.

 113:4  Yahweh is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens (sky).

 113:5  Who is like unto Yahweh our God, who dwelleth on high,

 113:6  Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven (the sky), and in the earth (land)!

 113:7  He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

 113:8  That He may set him with princes, even with the princes of His people.

 113:9  He maketh the barren woman to keep (dwell in a) house, and to be a joyful mother of children. Praise you Yahweh.



Psalm 114:1  When Israel went out of Egypt, the house of Jacob from a people of strange language;

 114:2  Judah was His sanctuary, and Israel His dominion.

 114:3  The sea saw it, and fled: Jordan was driven back.

Exodus 14:21  And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and Yahweh caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.

Joshua 3:16  That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho.

 114:4  The mountains skipped like rams, and the little hills like lambs (son of sheep).

 114:5  What ailed you, O you sea, that you fleddest? you Jordan, that you wast driven back?

 114:6  Ye mountains, that you skipped like rams; and you little hills, like lambs?

 114:7  Tremble, you earth (land), at the presence of Yahweh, at the presence of the God of Jacob;

 114:8  Which turned the rock into a standing (pool of) water, the flint into a fountain of waters.  (Ex 17:1-7  Num 20:2-13)


Psalm 115:1  Not unto us, O YAHWEH, not unto us, but unto Your name give glory, for Your mercy, and for Your truth's (faithfulness's) sake.

 115:2  Wherefore should the heathen (non-Israelite nations) say, Where is now their God?

3Maccabees 6:11  Let not the vain-minded congratulate vain idols at the destruction of your beloved, saying, Neither did their god deliver them.

 115:3  But our God is in the heavens (sky): He hath done whatsoever He hath pleased.

 115:4  Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's (Adam's) hands.

 115:5  They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:

 115:6  They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:

 115:7  They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.

 115:8  They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.

Revelation 9:20  And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and bronze, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

 115:9  O Israel, trust you in Yahweh: He is their help and their shield.

 115:10  O house of Aaron, trust in Yahweh: He is their help and their shield.

 115:11  Ye that fear Yahweh, trust in Yahweh: He is their help and their shield.

 115:12  Yahweh hath been mindful of us: He will bless us; He will bless the house of Israel; He will bless the house of Aaron.

 115:13  He will bless them that fear Yahweh, both small and great.

Revelation 11:18  And the nations were angry, and Your wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that You shouldest give reward unto Your servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Your name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

19:5  And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all you His servants, and you that fear Him, both small and great.

 115:14  Yahweh shall increase you more and more, you and your children.

 115:15  Ye are blessed of Yahweh which made heaven (the sky) and earth (the land).

 115:16  The heaven (sky), even the heavens (skies), are Yahweh's: but the earth (land) hath He given to the children of men (Adam).

 115:17  The dead praise not Yahweh, neither any that go down into silence (death).

 115:18  But we will bless Yahweh from this time forth and for evermore. Praise Yahweh.



Psalm 116:1  I love Yahweh, because He hath heard my voice and my supplications.

 116:2  Because He hath inclined His ear unto me, therefore will I call upon Him as long as I live (all off my days).

 116:3  The sorrows (cords) of death compassed me, and the pains of hell (the grave, land of the dead and it's inhabitants) gat hold upon me: I found trouble and sorrow.

Sorrows is cords, H2256, sorrow at the end of the verse is sorrow, H3015. The KJV generalizes many words that can change the context and meaning.

 116:4  Then called I upon the name of Yahweh; O YAHWEH, I beseech You, deliver (rescue) my soul (life).

 116:5  Gracious is Yahweh, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.

 116:6  Yahweh preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and He helped me.

 116:7  Return unto your rest, O my soul; for Yahweh hath dealt bountifully with you.

 116:8  For You hast delivered my soul (life) from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling.

 116:9  I will walk before Yahweh in the land of the living.

 116:10  I believed, therefore have I spoken: I was greatly afflicted:

2Corinthians 4:13  We having the same spirit of faith (allegiance), according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;

 116:11  I said in my haste, All men (All of Adam) are liars.

 116:12  What shall I render unto Yahweh for all His benefits toward me?

 116:13  I will take the cup of salvation, and call upon the name of Yahweh.

 116:14  I will pay my vows unto Yahweh now in the presence of all His people.

 116:15  Precious in the sight of Yahweh is the death of His saints.

Retribution is coming 'in that day' for the death of His saints.

 116:16  O YAHWEH, truly I am Your servant; I am Your servant, and the son of Your handmaid: you hast loosed my bonds.

Loosed my bonds is figurative for loosed the hold of death.

 116:17  I will offer to You the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of Yahweh.

 116:18  I will pay my vows unto Yahweh now in the presence of all His people,

 116:19  In the courts of Yahweh's house, in the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise you Yahweh.



Psalm 117:1  O praise Yahweh, all you nations: praise Him, all you people.

 117:2  For His merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of Yahweh endureth for ever. Praise you Yahweh.



Psalm 118:1  O give thanks unto Yahweh; for He is good: because His mercy endureth for ever.

 118:2  Let Israel now say, that His mercy endureth for ever.

 118:3  Let the house of Aaron (the priesthood) now say, that His mercy endureth for ever.

 118:4  Let them now that fear (revere) Yahweh say, that His mercy endureth for ever.

 118:5  I called upon Yahweh in distress: Yahweh answered me, and set me in a large place.

 118:6  Yahweh is on my side; I will not fear: what can man (Adam) do unto me?

Hebrews 13:6  So that we may boldly say, Yahweh is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

 118:7  Yahweh taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me.

 118:8  It is better to trust (seek refuge) in Yahweh than to put confidence (trust) in man (Adam).

 118:9  It is better to trust (seek refuge) in Yahweh than to put confidence in princes (nobility).

 118:10  All nations compassed me about: but in the name of Yahweh will I destroy them.

 118:11  They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of Yahweh I will destroy them.

 118:12  They compassed me about like bees; they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of Yahweh I will destroy them.

 118:13  You hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but Yahweh helped me.

 118:14  Yahweh is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

Exodus 15:2  Yahweh is my strength and song, and He is become my salvation: He is my God, and I will prepare Him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt Him.

Isaiah 12:2  Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for Yahweh is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation.

 118:15  The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of Yahweh doeth valiantly.

 118:16  The right hand of Yahweh is exalted: the right hand of Yahweh doeth valiantly.

 118:17  I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of Yahweh.

 118:18  Yahweh hath chastened me sore: but He hath not given me over unto death.

 118:19  Open to me the gates of righteousness: I will go into them, and I will praise Yahweh:

 118:20  This gate of Yahweh, into which the righteous shall enter.

 118:21  I will praise You: for You hast heard (answered) me, and art become my salvation.

 118:22  The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.

The Hebrew: The stone which the builders spurned is become the head cornerstone.

Luke 20:17  And He beheld them, and said, What is this then that is written, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head cornerstone?

Acts 4:11  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.

1Peter 2:7  Unto you therefore which believe He is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

 118:23  This is Yahweh's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

Matthew 21:42  Jesus saith unto them, Did you never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is Yahweh's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

 118:24  This is the day which Yahweh hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

 118:25  Save now, I beseech You, O YAHWEH: O YAHWEH, I beseech You, send now prosperity.

Matthew 21:9  And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying, Hosanna to the Son of David: Blessed is He that cometh in the name of the Prince; Hosanna in the highest.

 118:26  Blessed be He that cometh in the name of Yahweh: we have blessed You out of the house of Yahweh.

 118:27  God is Yahweh, which hath shewed us light: bind the sacrifice (feast) with cords, even unto the horns of the altar.

Light, meaning wisdom or understanding. Feast (sacrifice) refers to the passover lamb.

 118:28  You art my God, and I will praise You: You art my God, I will exalt You.

 118:29  O give thanks unto Yahweh; for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 119:49  ZAIN. (Seventh Hebrew letter) Remember the word unto Your servant, upon which You hast caused me to hope.

 119:50  This is my comfort in my affliction: for Your word hath quickened me (given me life).

 119:51  The proud have had me greatly in derision (scorn): yet have I not declined from Your law.

 119:54  Your statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage (sojourning).

 119:67  Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept Your word.

 119:68  You art good, and doest good; teach me Your statutes.

 119:69  The proud have forged a lie against me: but I will keep Your precepts with my whole heart.

 119:70  Their heart is as fat as grease; but I delight in Your law.

Fat as grease means insensititve.

 119:71  It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn Your statutes.

 119:83  For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget Your statutes.

 119:84  How many are the days of Your servant? when wilt You execute judgment on them that persecute me?

 119:86  All Your commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help You me.

 119:87  They had almost consumed me upon earth (land); but I forsook not Your precepts.

 119:89  LAMED. (Twelfth Hebrew letter) For ever, O YAHWEH, Your word is settled in heaven (the sky).

 119:92  Unless Your law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction (depression, misery).

 119:93  I will never forget Your precepts: for with them You hast quickened me (given me life).

 119:94  I am Yours, save me; for I have sought Your precepts.

 119:95  The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider Your testimonies.

 119:102  I have not departed from Your judgments: for You hast taught me.

 119:103  How sweet are Your words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

 119:104  Through Your precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.

 119:105  NUN.(Fourteenth Hebrew letter) Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

 119:106  I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep Your righteous judgments.

 119:108  Accept, I beseech You, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O YAHWEH, and teach me Your judgments.

 119:109  My soul is continually in my hand: yet do I not forget Your law.

 119:112  I have inclined mine heart to perform Your statutes alway, even unto the end.

 119:113  SAMECH.(Fifteenth Hebrew letter) I hate vain thoughts (double mindedness): but Your law do I love.

 119:114  You art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in Your word.

 119:116  Uphold me according unto Your word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope.

 119:117  Hold You me up (Sustain me), and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto Your statutes continually.

 119:124  Deal with Your servant according unto Your mercy, and teach me Your statutes.

 119:125  I am Your servant; give me understanding, that I may know Your testimonies.

 119:126  It is time for You, YAHWEH, to work (act): for they have made void Your law.

 119:127  Therefore I love Your commandments above gold; yea, above fine gold.

 119:128  Therefore I esteem all Your precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way.

 119:129  PE. (Seventeenth Hebrew letter) Your testimonies are wonderful: therefore doth my soul keep them.

 119:130  The entrance (unfolding) of Your words giveth light (enlightenment); it giveth understanding unto the simple.

 119:131  I opened my mouth, and panted (thirsted): for I longed for Your commandments.

 119:132  Look You upon me, and be merciful unto me, as You usest to do (judgment) unto those that love Your name.

 119:133  Order my steps in Your word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

 119:134  Deliver me from the oppression of man (Adam): so will I keep Your precepts.

 119:135  Make Your face to shine upon Your servant; and teach me Your statutes.

 119:136  Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not Your law.

 119:137  TZADDI. (Eighteenth Hebrew letter) Righteous art You, O YAHWEH, and upright are Your judgments.

 119:140  Your word is very pure: therefore Your servant loveth it.

 119:141  I am small and despised: yet do not I forget Your precepts.

 119:144  The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting: give me understanding, and I shall live.

 119:145  KOPH. (Nineteeth Hebrew letter) I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O YAHWEH: I will keep Your statutes.

 119:147  I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in Your word.

 119:148  Mine eyes prevent (meet) the night watches, that I might meditate in Your word.

 119:149  Hear my voice according unto Your lovingkindness: O YAHWEH, quicken me (give me life) according to Your judgment.

 120:2  Deliver my soul, O YAHWEH, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.

 120:3  What shall be given unto you? or what shall be done unto you, you false tongue?

 120:4  Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.

 120:5  Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!

 120:6  My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.

 120:7  I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.



Psalm 121:1  A Song of degrees (Ascent). I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

The last part is a question “...from where will my help come?”

 121:2  My help cometh from Yahweh, which made heaven (the sky) and earth (the land).

 121:3  He will not suffer your foot to be moved: He that keepeth (watches over) you will not slumber.

 121:4  Behold, He that keepeth (watches over) Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

 121:5  Yahweh is your keeper (guardian): Yahweh is your shade upon your right hand.

 121:6  The sun shall not smite you by day, nor the moon by night.

 121:7  Yahweh shall preserve (guard) you from all evil: He shall preserve (watch over) your soul.

 121:8  Yahweh shall preserve (watch over) your going out and your coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.



Psalm 122:1  A Song of degrees (Ascent) of David. I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of Yahweh.

 122:2  Our feet shall stand within your gates, O Jerusalem.

 122:3  Jerusalem is builded as a city that is compact together:

 122:4  Whither the tribes go up, the tribes of Yah, unto the testimony of Israel (the ark), to give thanks unto the name of Yahweh.

 122:5  For there are set thrones of judgment, the thrones of the house of David.

 122:6  Pray (Ask) for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you.

 122:7  Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces.

 122:8  For my brethren and companions' sakes, I will now say, Peace be within you (Jerusalem).

 122:9  Because of the house of Yahweh our God I will seek your good.



Psalm 123:1  A Song of degrees (Ascent). Unto You lift I up mine eyes, O You that dwellest in the heavens (sky).

 123:2  Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon Yahweh our God, until that He have mercy upon us.

 123:3  Have mercy upon us, O YAHWEH, have mercy upon us: for we are exceedingly filled with contempt.

 123:4  Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scorning of those that are at ease (of the insolent), and with the contempt of the proud (arrogant).



Psalm 124:1  A Song of degrees (Ascent) of David. If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, now may Israel say;

 124:2  If it had not been Yahweh who was on our side, when men (Adam) rose up against us:

 124:3  Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:

 124:4  Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul:

 124:5  Then the proud (raging) waters had gone over our soul.

 124:6  Blessed be Yahweh, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.

 124:7  Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped.

 124:8  Our help is in the name of Yahweh, who made heaven (the sky) and earth (the land).



Psalm 125:1  A Song of degrees (Ascent). They that trust in Yahweh shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.

 125:2  As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so Yahweh is round about His people from henceforth even for ever.

 125:3  For the rod of the wicked (unrighteous) shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the righteous put forth their hands unto iniquity (unrighteousness).

 125:4  Do good, O YAHWEH, unto those that be good, and to them that are upright in their hearts.

 125:5  As for such as turn aside unto their crooked ways, Yahweh shall lead them forth with the workers of iniquity: but peace shall be upon Israel.



Psalm 126:1  A Song of degrees. When Yahweh turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

 126:2  Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen (nations), Yahweh hath done great things for them.

 126:3  Yahweh hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

 126:4  Turn again our captivity, O YAHWEH, as the streams in the south.

 126:5  They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

 126:6  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.



Psalm 127:1  A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except Yahweh build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except Yahweh keep (watch over) the city, the watchman waketh (watches) but in vain.

 127:2  It is vain (useless) for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows (toil): for so He giveth His beloved sleep.

 127:3  Lo, children are an heritage of Yahweh: and the fruit of the womb is His reward.

 127:4  As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.

 127:5  Happy is the man that hath his quiver (of arrows) full of them (his sons): they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the (hated) enemies in the gate.



Psalm 128:1  A Song of degrees. Blessed is every one that feareth (hold in awe) Yahweh; that walketh in His ways.

 128:2  For you shalt eat the labour of your hands: happy shalt you be, and it shall be well with you.

 128:3  Your wife shall be as a fruitful vine by the sides of your house: your children like olive plants round about your table.

 128:4  Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth (holds in awe) Yahweh.

 128:5  Yahweh shall bless you out of Zion: and you shalt see the good of Jerusalem all the days of your life.

 128:6  Yea, you shalt see your children's children, and peace upon Israel.



Psalm 129:1  A Song of degrees. Many a time have they afflicted (oppressed) me from my youth, may Israel now say:

Oppressed H6887 root meaning is to bind with cords.

 129:2  Many a time have they afflicted (oppressed) me from my youth: yet they have not prevailed against me.

 129:3  The plowers plowed upon my back: they made long their furrows.

Made long wounds or stripes. Note: David is a 'type' of Christ.

Septuagint: 3  The sinners wrought upon my back: they prolonged their iniquity.

 129:4  Yahweh is righteous: He hath cut asunder the cords of the wicked.

Cut asunder is literal, cords refers to the 'oppression' in verses 1 and 2.

 129:5  Let them all be confounded (put to shame) and turned back that hate Zion.

 129:6  Let them be as the grass upon the housetops, which withereth afore it groweth up:

 129:7  Wherewith the mower (reaper) filleth not his hand; nor he that bindeth sheaves his bosom.

He that bindeth sheaves also means to treat harshly. His bosom refers to a gatherer stuffing his shirtfront with grainstalks, as was done back then.

Septuagint: 7  Wherewith the reaper fills not his hand, nor he that makes up the sheaves, his bosom.

 129:8  Neither do they which go by say, The blessing of Yahweh be upon you: we bless you in the name of Yahweh.

David is talking about the Canaanite and Edomite Jews.

It is we, true Israel, the white race, that go by and bless people in the name of Yahweh. When do the Jews ever bless anything?



Psalm 130:1  A Song of degrees. Out of the depths have I cried unto You, O YAHWEH.

Depths of oppression and trouble.

 130:2  Yahweh, hear my voice: let Your ears be attentive to the voice of my supplications.

 130:3  If You, YAH, shouldest mark iniquities, O Yahweh, who shall stand?

 130:4  But there is forgiveness with You, that You mayest be feared (revered).

 130:5  I wait for Yahweh, my soul doth wait, and in His word do I hope.

 130:6  My soul waiteth for Yahweh more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.

 130:7  Let Israel hope in Yahweh: for with Yahweh there is mercy, and with Him is plenteous redemption.

 130:8  And He shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.

Matthew 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and you shalt call His name YAHSHUA: for He shall save His people from their sins.

Titus 2:14  Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.



Psalm 131:1  A Song of degrees of David. YAHWEH, my heart is not haughty (arrogant), nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high (difficult) for me.

 131:2  Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul is even as a weaned child.

 131:3  Let Israel hope in Yahweh from henceforth and for ever.



Psalm 132:1  A Song of degrees. YAHWEH, remember David, and all his afflictions:

 132:2  How he sware unto Yahweh, and vowed unto the mighty God of Jacob;

 132:3  Surely I will not come into the tabernacle of my house, nor go up into my bed;

 132:4  I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,

 132:5  Until I find out a place for Yahweh, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.

 132:6  Lo, we heard of it at Ephratah: we found it in the fields of the wood.

Ephratah is the old name of Bethlehem.

 132:7  We will go into His tabernacles: we will worship at His footstool.

 132:8  Arise, O YAHWEH, into Your rest; You, and the ark of Your strength.

 132:9  Let Your priests be clothed with righteousness; and let Your saints shout for joy.

 132:10  For Your servant David's sake turn not away the face of Your anointed.   (2Chr 6:41-42)

 132:11  Yahweh hath sworn in truth unto David; He will not turn from it; Of the fruit of your body will I set upon your throne.   (2Sa 7:12-16  1Chr 17:11-14  Acts 2:30)

 132:12  If your children will keep My covenant and My testimony that I shall teach them, their children shall also sit upon your throne for evermore.

Still does to this day. The throne of David is in Britain and Queen Elizabeth II is a descendant of David, and she is NOT a Jew. The Jews are not Israel.

 132:13  For Yahweh hath chosen Zion; He hath desired it for His habitation.

 132:14  This is My rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it.

 132:15  I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread.

 132:16  I will also clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy.

 132:17  There will I make the horn of David to bud: I have ordained a lamp for Mine anointed.

 132:18  His (hated) enemies will I clothe with shame: but upon himself shall his crown flourish.


Psalm 133:1  A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren (kindred) to dwell together in unity!

 133:2  It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron's beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments;

 133:3  As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there Yahweh commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.



Psalm 134:1  A Song of degrees. Behold, bless you Yahweh, all you servants of Yahweh, which by night stand in the house of Yahweh.

 134:2  Lift up your hands in the sanctuary, and bless Yahweh.

 134:3  Yahweh that made heaven (the sky) and earth (the land) bless you out of Zion.



Psalm 135:1  Praise you Yahweh. Praise you the name of Yahweh; praise Him, O you servants of Yahweh.

 135:2  Ye that stand in the house of Yahweh, in the courts of the house of our God,

 135:3  Praise Yahweh; for Yahweh is good: sing praises unto His name; for it is pleasant.

 135:4  For Yahweh hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for His peculiar treasure (unique possession).

 135:5  For I know that Yahweh is great, and that our Sovereign is above all gods.

 135:6  Whatsoever Yahweh pleased, that did He in heaven (the sky), and in earth (the land), in the seas, and all deep places.

 135:7  He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth (land); He maketh lightnings for the rain; He bringeth the wind out of His treasuries (storehouses).

 135:8  Who smote the firstborn of Egypt, both of man (Adam) and beast.

 135:9  Who sent tokens (signs) and wonders into the midst of you, O Egypt, upon Pharaoh, and upon all his servants.

 135:10  Who smote great nations, and slew mighty kings;

 135:11  Sihon king of the Amorites, and Og king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan:

 135:12  And gave their land for an heritage, an heritage unto Israel His people.

 135:13  Your name, O YAHWEH, endureth for ever; and Your memorial, O YAHWEH, throughout all generations.

 135:14  For Yahweh will judge (bring justice to) His people, and He will repent Himself (give comfort) concerning (to) His servants.

 135:15  The idols of the heathen (nations) are silver and gold, the work of men's (Adam's) hands.

 135:16  They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not;

 135:17  They have ears, but they hear not; neither is there any breath in their mouths.

 135:18  They that make them are like unto them: so is every one that trusteth in them.   (Rev 9:20)

 135:19  Bless Yahweh, O house of Israel: bless Yahweh, O house of Aaron:

 135:20  Bless Yahweh, O house of Levi: you that fear Yahweh, bless Yahweh.

 135:21  Blessed be Yahweh out of Zion, which dwelleth at Jerusalem. Praise you Yahweh.



Psalm 136:1  O give thanks unto Yahweh; for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:2  O give thanks unto the God of gods: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:3  O give thanks to Yahweh of sovereigns: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:4  To Him who alone doeth great wonders: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:5  To Him that by wisdom made the heavens (sky): for His mercy endureth for ever.   

 136:6  To Him that stretched out the earth (land) above the waters: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:7  To Him that made great lights: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:8  The sun to rule by day: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:9  The moon and stars to rule by night: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:10  To Him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:11  And brought out Israel from among them: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:12  With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:13  To Him which divided the Red sea (Sea of Reeds) into parts: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:14  And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:15  But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea (Sea of Reeds): for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:16  To Him which led His people through the wilderness: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:17  To Him which smote great kings: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:18  And slew famous kings: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:19  Sihon king of the Amorites: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:20  And Og the king of Bashan: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:21  And gave their land for an heritage: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:22  Even an heritage unto Israel His servant: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:23  Who remembered us in our low estate: for His mercy endureth for ever:

 136:24  And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:25  Who giveth food to all flesh: for His mercy endureth for ever.

 136:26  O give thanks unto the God of heaven (the sky): for His mercy endureth for ever.



Psalm 137:1  By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, yea, we wept, when we remembered Zion.

 137:2  We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.

 137:3  For there they that carried us away captive required of us a song; and they that wasted us required of us mirth, saying, Sing us one of the songs of Zion.

 137:4  How shall we sing Yahweh's song in a strange land?

Strange being a racially foreign land.

 137:5  If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.

 137:6  If I do not remember you, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth; if I prefer not Jerusalem above my chief joy.

 137:7  Remember, O YAHWEH, the children of Edom in the day of Jerusalem; who said, Rase it, rase it, even to the foundation thereof.

 137:8  O daughter of Babylon, who art to be destroyed; happy shall he be, that rewardeth (repays) you as you hast served (recompensed) us.

Revelation 18:6  Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

 137:9  Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth your little ones against the stones.

This is a Psalm of mourning of the Babylonian exiles. Babylon was very cruel to Israel during it's captivity, and all the enemies of Israel were glad to join in the destruction of Jerusalem. Verses 8 and 9 show clearly the extreme hatred of their captors.

The Edomites, who are the descendants of Esau, and are Edomite Jews, also participated in the destruction of Jerusalem. Don't forget them Yahweh, as verse 7 states.

This confirms and shows that the enmity of the 2 seedlines of Genesis 3:15 still exists today.

The children of Adam and of Jacob (the white race) verses the children of Cain and of Esau (the Jews).



Psalm 138:1  A Psalm of David. I will praise You with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto You.

 138:2  I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your name for Your lovingkindness and for Your truth: for You hast magnified Your word above all Your name.

 138:3  In the day when I cried (called) You answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.

 138:4  All the kings of the earth (land) shall praise You, O YAHWEH, when they hear the words of Your mouth.

 138:5  Yea, they shall sing in (of) the ways of Yahweh: for great is the glory of Yahweh.

 138:6  Though Yahweh be high, yet hath He respect unto the lowly (humble): but the proud He knoweth afar off (considers from far away).

 138:7  Though I walk in the midst of trouble, You wilt revive me (keep me alive): You shalt stretch forth Your hand against the wrath of mine (hated) enemies, and Your right hand shall save me.

 138:8  Yahweh will perfect (complete) that which concerneth me: Your mercy, O YAHWEH, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of Your own hands.



Psalm 139:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. O YAHWEH, You hast searched me, and known me.

 139:2  You knowest my downsitting and mine uprising, You understandest my thought afar off.

 139:3  You compassest my path and my lying down, and art acquainted with all my ways.

 139:4  For there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O YAHWEH, You knowest it altogether.

 139:5  You hast beset (besieged) me behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me.

 139:6  Such knowledge is too wonderful (incomprehensible) for me; it is (too) high, I cannot attain unto (understand) it.

 139:7  Whither shall I go from Your Spirit? or whither shall I flee from Your presence?

 139:8  If I ascend up into heaven (the sky), You art there: if I make my bed in hell (the grave), behold, You art there.

 139:9  If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;

 139:10  Even there shall Your hand lead me, and Your right hand shall hold me.

 139:11  If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me.

 139:12  Yea, the darkness hideth not from You; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to You.

 139:13  For You hast possessed my reins (heart): You hast covered me in my mother's womb.

 139:14  I will praise You; for I am fearfully (awesomely) and wonderfully made: marvellous are Your works; and that my soul knoweth right well (abundantly).

 139:15  My substance was not hid from You, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth (land).

 139:16  Your eyes did see my substance (the unformed child), yet being unperfect; and in Your book all my members were written, which in continuance (due time) were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.

 139:17  How precious also are Your thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!

 139:18  If I should count them (His thoughts), they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with You.

 139:19  Surely You wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, you bloody men.

 139:20  For they speak against You wickedly, and Your enemies take Your name in vain.

The Hebrew: 20  Because they speak of evil plans against You, and Your enemies lift themselves up falsely.

 139:21  Do not I hate them, O YAHWEH, that hate You? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against You?

 139:22  I hate them with perfect (limitless) hatred: I count them mine (hated) enemies.

 139:23  Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:

 139:24  And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.



Psalm 140:1  To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. Deliver me, O YAHWEH, from the evil man (Adam): preserve me from the violent man;

 140:2  Which imagine (plot) mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.

 140:3  They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.

Romans 3:13  Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:

 140:4  Keep me, O YAHWEH, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my goings.

 140:5  The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside (path); they have set gins (snares) for me. Selah.

 140:6  I said unto Yahweh, You art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O YAHWEH.

 140:7  O GOD Yahweh, the strength of my salvation, You hast covered my head (with a shield) in the day of battle.

 140:8  Grant not, O YAHWEH, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device (plots); lest they exalt themselves. Selah.

 140:9  As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.

 140:10  Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

 140:11  Let not an evil speaker (slanderer) be established (put into a position of power) in the earth (land): evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.

 140:12  I know that Yahweh will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.

 140:13  Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto Your name: the upright shall dwell in Your presence.



Psalm 141:1  A Psalm of David. YAHWEH, I cry unto You: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto You.

 141:2  Let my prayer be set forth before You as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice (grain offering).

 141:3  Set a watch, O YAHWEH, before my mouth; keep (watch over) the door of my lips.

 141:4  Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practice wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.

 141:5  Let the righteous smite me; it shall be a kindness: and let him reprove me; it shall be an excellent oil, which shall not break my head: for yet my prayer also shall be in their calamities (against their evils).

 141:6  When their judges are overthrown in stony places (by stony hands), they shall hear my words; for they are sweet.

 141:7  Our bones are scattered at the grave's mouth, as when one cutteth and cleaveth wood upon the earth.

The last part in Hebrew reads, “ when one plows and breaks open the ground.”

 141:8  But mine eyes are unto You, O GOD Yahweh: in You is my trust (my refuge); leave not my soul destitute (unprepared).

 141:9  Keep me from the snares which they have laid for me, and the gins (lures) of the workers of iniquity.

 141:10  Let the wicked fall into their own nets, whilst that I withal escape (while I alone pass through).



1Samuel 22:1  David therefore departed thence, and escaped to the cave Adullam: and when his brethren and all his father's house heard it, they went down thither to him.

24:3  And he came to the sheepcotes by the way, where was a cave; and Saul went in to cover his feet: and David and his men remained in the sides of the cave.

Psalm 142:1  Maschil (Instructive) of David; A Prayer when he was in the cave. I cried unto Yahweh with my voice; with my voice unto Yahweh did I make my supplication.

 142:2  I poured out my complaint before Him; I shewed before Him my trouble.

 142:3  When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then You knewest my path. In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me.

 142:4  I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know (acknowledge) me: refuge failed me; no man cared for (inquired about) my soul (life).

 142:5  I cried unto You, O YAHWEH: I said, You art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.

 142:6  Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.

 142:7  Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Your name: the righteous shall compass me about; for You shalt deal bountifully with me.



Psalm 143:1  A Psalm of David. Hear my prayer, O YAHWEH, give ear to my supplications: in Your faithfulness answer me, and in Your righteousness.

 143:2  And enter not into judgment with Your servant: for in Your sight shall no man living be justified.

Romans 3:20  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in His sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

Galatians 2:16  Knowing that a man is not justified by the works (rituals) of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works (rituals) of the law: for by the works (rituals) of the law shall no flesh be justified.

 143:3  For the (hated) enemy hath persecuted my soul; he hath smitten my life down to the ground; he hath made me to dwell in darkness, as those that have been long dead.

 143:4  Therefore is my spirit overwhelmed within me; my heart within me is desolate (appalled).

 143:5  I remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I muse (ponder) on the work of Your hands.

 143:6  I stretch forth my hands unto You: my soul thirsteth after You, as a thirsty (dried out) land. Selah.

 143:7  Hear (Answer) me speedily, O YAHWEH: my spirit faileth (is exhausted): hide not Your face from me, lest I be like unto them that go down into the pit.

 143:8  Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; for in You do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto You.

 143:9  Deliver me, O YAHWEH, from mine (hated) enemies: I flee unto You to hide me.

 143:10  Teach me to do Your will; for You art my God: Your spirit is good; lead me into the land of uprightness.

A righteous lifestyle.

 143:11  Quicken me (Preserve my life), O YAHWEH, for Your name's sake: for Your righteousness' sake bring my soul out of trouble.

 143:12  And of Your mercy cut off mine (hated) enemies, and destroy all them that afflict my soul: for I am Your servant.



Psalm 144:1  A Psalm of David. Blessed be Yahweh my strength (Rock), which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:

 144:2  My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and He in whom I trust (take refuge); who subdueth my people under me.

 144:3  YAHWEH, what is man (Adam), that You takest knowledge of him! or the son of man (mortals), that You makest account of him!

Job 7:17-18

17  What is man (mortals), that You shouldest magnify him? and that you shouldest set Your heart upon him?

18  And that You shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

 144:4  Man (Adam) is like to vanity: his days are as a shadow that passeth away.

 144:5  Bow (Stretch out) Your heavens (sky), O YAHWEH, and come down: touch the mountains, and they shall smoke.

 144:6  Cast forth lightning, and scatter them: shoot out Your arrows, and destroy (confuse) them.

2Samuel 22:15  And He sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.

 144:7  Send Your hand from above; rid me, and deliver me out of great waters, from the hand of strange (racially foreign) children;

 144:8  Whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood.

 144:9  I will sing a new song unto You, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto You.

 144:10  It is He that giveth salvation (victory) unto kings: who delivereth David His servant from the hurtful sword.

 144:11  Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange (racially foreign) children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood:

 144:12  That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones (pillars), polished (formed) after the similitude (pattern) of a palace:

 144:13  That our garners (graineries) may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets:

 144:14  That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets.

 144:15  Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is Yahweh.



Psalm 145:1  David's Psalm of praise. I will extol You, my God, O king; and I will bless Your name for ever and ever.

 145:2  Every day will I bless You; and I will praise Your name for ever and ever.

 145:3  Great is Yahweh, and greatly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable.

 145:4  One generation shall praise Your works to another, and shall declare Your mighty acts.

 145:5  I will speak of the glorious honour of Your majesty, and of Your wondrous works.

 145:6  And men shall speak of the might of Your terrible (awesome) acts: and I will declare Your greatness.

 145:7  They shall abundantly utter the memory (remembrance) of Your great goodness, and shall sing of Your righteousness.

 145:8  Yahweh is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

 145:9  Yahweh is good to all: and His tender mercies are over all His works.

We Israelites are His works.

 145:10  All Your works shall praise You, O YAHWEH; and Your saints shall bless You.

 145:11  They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom, and talk of Your power;

 145:12  To make known to the sons of men (Adam) His mighty acts, and the glorious majesty of His kingdom.

 145:13  Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endureth throughout all generations.

 145:14  Yahweh upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.

 145:15  The eyes of all wait upon You; and You givest them their meat in due season.

 145:16  You openest Your hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

 145:17  Yahweh is righteous in all His ways, and holy in all His works.

 145:18  Yahweh is nigh unto all them that call upon Him, to all that call upon Him in truth.

 145:19  He will fulfil the desire of them that fear Him (hold Him in awe): He also will hear their cry, and will save them.

 145:20  Yahweh preserveth all them that love Him: but all the wicked will He destroy.

 145:21  My mouth shall speak the praise of Yahweh: and let all flesh bless His holy name for ever and ever.



Psalm 146:1  Praise you Yahweh. Praise Yahweh, O my soul.

 146:2  While I live will I praise Yahweh: I will sing praises unto my God while I have any being.

 146:3  Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man (Adam), in whom there is no help (deliverance).

 146:4  His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth (ground); in that very day his thoughts perish.

 146:5  Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in Yahweh his God:

 146:6  Which made heaven (sky), and earth (the land), the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:

 146:7  Which executeth judgment (justice) for the oppressed: which giveth food to the hungry. Yahweh looseth (frees) the prisoners:

 146:8  Yahweh openeth the eyes of the blind: Yahweh raiseth them that are bowed down: Yahweh loveth the righteous:

 146:9  Yahweh preserveth the strangers (of kin); He relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked He turneth upside down (makes difficult).

 146:10  Yahweh shall reign for ever, even your God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise you Yahweh.



Psalm 147:1  Praise you Yahweh: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely (appropriate).

 147:2  Yahweh doth build up Jerusalem: He gathereth together the outcasts (dispersed) of Israel.

 147:3  He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.

 147:4  He telleth (counts) the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names.

H3556 is a metaphor for angels.

 147:5  Great is our Sovereign, and of great power: His understanding is infinite.

 147:6  Yahweh lifteth up the meek (humble): He casteth the wicked down to the ground.

 147:7  Sing unto Yahweh with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:

 147:8  Who covereth the heaven (skies) with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth (land), who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

 147:9  He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.

 147:10  He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: He taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man.

 147:11  Yahweh taketh pleasure in them that fear Him (hold Him in awe), in those that hope in His mercy.

 147:12  Praise (Exalt) Yahweh, O Jerusalem; praise your God, O Zion.

 147:13  For He hath strengthened the bars of your gates; He hath blessed your children within you.

 147:14  He maketh peace in your borders, and filleth you with the finest of the wheat.

 147:15  He sendeth forth His commandment upon earth (land): His word runneth very swiftly.

 147:16  He giveth snow like wool: He scattereth the hoarfrost like ashes.

 147:17  He casteth forth His ice like morsels: who can stand before His cold?

 147:18  He sendeth out His word, and melteth them: He causeth His wind to blow, and the waters flow.

 147:19  He sheweth His word unto Jacob, His statutes and His judgments unto Israel.

 147:20  He hath not dealt so with any nation: and as for His judgments, they have not known them. Praise you Yahweh.

This Psalm shows that Adamic Israel is His chosen people, no others qualify.



Psalm 148:1  Praise you Yahweh. Praise you Yahweh from the heavens (skies): praise Him in the heights.

 148:2  Praise you Him, all His angels: praise you Him, all His hosts.

 148:3  Praise you Him, sun and moon: praise Him, all you stars of light.

 148:4  Praise Him, you heavens (sky) of heavens (skies), and you waters that be above the heavens (skies).

 148:5  Let them praise the name of Yahweh: for He commanded, and they were created.

 148:6  He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: He hath made a decree which shall not pass.

 148:7  Praise Yahweh from the earth (land), you dragons (sea monsters), and all deeps:

 148:8  Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling His word:

 148:9  Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:

 148:10  Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:

 148:11  Kings of the earth (land), and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth (land):

 148:12  Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

 148:13  Let them praise the name of Yahweh: for His name alone is excellent; His glory is above the earth (land) and heaven (sky).

 148:14  He also exalteth the horn of His people, the praise of all His saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto Him. Praise you Yahweh.

Psalm 148:14 tells us the identity of the 'saints'. They are of Jacob/Israel (not just those who are canonized by some man-made “church” establishment). Only the children of Jacob can be saints.



Psalm 149:1  Praise you Yahweh. Sing unto Yahweh a new song, and His praise in the congregation of saints.

 149:2  Let Israel rejoice in Him that made him: let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.

 149:3  Let them praise His name in the dance: let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel and harp.

 149:4  For Yahweh taketh pleasure in His people: He will beautify (glorify) the meek (humble) with salvation.

 149:5  Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.

 149:6  Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword in their hand;

2Maccabees 15:27  So that fighting with their hands, and praying unto God with their hearts, they slew no less than thirty and five thousand men: for through the appearance of God they were greatly cheered.

 149:7  To execute vengeance upon the heathen (nations), and punishments upon the people (nations);

 149:8  To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;

 149:9  To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all His saints. Praise you Yahweh.



Psalm 150:1  Praise you Yahweh. Praise God in His sanctuary: praise Him in the firmament (endless expanse) of His power.

 150:2  Praise Him for His mighty acts: praise Him according to His excellent greatness.

 150:3  Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet: praise Him with the psaltery and harp.

 150:4  Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise Him with stringed instruments and organs.

 150:5  Praise Him upon the loud cymbals: praise Him upon the high sounding cymbals.

 150:6  Let every thing that hath breath praise Yahweh. Praise you Yahweh.

Psalm 151


Psalm 151 A and B in 11QPsa

Psalm 151 in the Septuagint

(Psalm 151A)
Hallelujah! A Psalm of David, son of Jesse.

This psalm is autographical, 
ascribed to David (but outside the number), after he had fought with Goliath in single combat.

1 I was smaller than my brothers,
and the youngest of my father’s sons, 
so he made me shepherd of his flock 
and ruler over his little goats. 
2 My hands fashioned a reed pipe, 
and my fingers a lyre;

1 I was small among my brothers,
and the youngest in my father’s house;
I would shepherd my father’s sheep.

2 My hands made a harp;
my fingers fashioned a lyre.

and so I gave glory to Yahweh. 
I said in my mind:
3 “The mountains cannot testify to Him,
nor can the hills proclaim— 
lift up my words, you trees,
and my compositions, you sheep.


3 And who will tell 
my Master?  Yahweh Himself; it is He who hears.


4 For who can announce, and who can declare, 
and who can recount my deeds? 
The Master of everything has seen, 
the God of everything has heard, and He has paid attention. 
5 He sent His prophet to anoint me, 
Samuel to raise me up. 
My brothers went out to meet him, 
handsome of figure, handsome in
6 Although they were tall of stature
and handsome because of their hair, 
Yahweh God did not choose them. 
7 But He sent and fetched me from behind the flock
and anointed me with the 
holy oil,
and He made me prince of His people

and ruler over the sons of His covenant.

(Psalm 151B) 
At the beginning of po[we]r for [Dav]id, 
after God’s prophet had anointed him.

4 a It was He who sent His messenger

4b Then He took me from my father’s sheep,
4c and anointed me with His anointing oil.

5 My brothers 
were handsome 
and tall, but Yahweh was not pleased with them.

6 I went out to meet the Philistine,
and he cursed me by his idols. 
7 But I drew his own sword; I beheaded him,
and took away disgrace from the people of Israel.

1 Then I s[a]w the Philistine,
throwing out taunts from the r[anks of the enemy]. 
2 …I…the…
