Chapters 90 thru 106

God is from everlasting to everlasting   Man is like grass   Man's average life span is 70 years and some 80   The work of our hands   God is a refuge and a fortress   When pay-day comes, our eyes shall see the wages of the wicked.   Two verses used by Satan to temp Jesus in the wilderness   A song for the Sabbath day   There is no unrighteousness in God   Majesty and strength are God's clothing   To whom does vengeance belong?   How long shall the wicked triumph?   God knows our thoughts   The wicked shall be cut off   Make a joyful noise unto God, our maker   We are the sheep of His hand   Sing unto the LORD, all the earth   Other gods are idols, but God made the heavens   He shall judge the people righteously   The Lord cometh. He cometh to judge the earth   The heavens declare God's righteousness   Those that love God, hate evil   God has made His salvation known   Nature itself, will be joyful before the Lord   The Lord reigns, and is great in Zion   A reference to Jesus   Moses, Aaron, Samuel, and the cloudy pillar   Another reference to Jesus   Come before God with singing   I will, I will, I will, I will, I will   So overwhelmed one forgets to eat   God will endure for ever   A reference to the return of Jesus Christ   Written for the generations to come   God is merciful, gracious, and slow to anger   As far as the east is from the west   God's clothing   The earth shall never be destroyed.   Creation of the sea shore   The water circuits of the earth   God supplies the needs of all life   The seasons   Man is to work until the evening   Some details of the wondrous works of God   God's covenant with Abraham   Joseph coming to great power in Egypt   The plagues brought upon Egypt by God   Israel coming out of Egypt with great abundance   God taking care of them while in the wilderness   Gods mercy endures for ever   Like our fore-fathers we have sinned   How soon we forget   Moses convinces God not to destroy His people   Phinehas, executing judgment   From idol worship to sacrificing their children   Many times God delivered them

God is from everlasting to everlasting

Psa 90:1 A Prayer of Moses the man of God. LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.

Psa 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting[1] to everlasting, thou art God.

The wisdom chapter:
Prov 8:22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

Prov 8:23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.

Prov 8:24 When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water.

Prov 8:25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:

Prov 8:26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.

Psa 90:3 Thou turnest man to destruction; and sayest, Return, ye children of men.

Psa 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.

2 Pet 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

Man is like grass

Psa 90:5 Thou carriest them away as with a flood; they are as a sleep: in the morning they are like grass which groweth up.

Psa 90:6 In the morning it flourisheth, and groweth up; in the evening it is cut down, and withereth.

Psa 90:7 For we are consumed by thine anger, and by thy wrath are we troubled.

Psa 90:8 Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.

Psa 90:9 For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

Psa 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.

Man's average life span is 70 years and some 80

Psa 90:11 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath.

Psa 90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

Psa 90:13 Return, O LORD, how long? and let it repent thee concerning thy servants.

Psa 90:14 O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

Psa 90:15 Make us glad according to the days wherein thou hast afflicted us, and the years wherein we have seen evil.

Psa 90:16 Let thy work appear unto thy servants, and thy glory unto their children.

The work of our hands

Psa 90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish[1] thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

1 "ESTABLISH": 3559. kuwn, koon; a prim. root; prop. to be erect (i.e. stand perpendicular); hence (causat.) to set up, in a great variety of applications, whether lit.

God is a refuge and a fortress

Psa 91:1 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

Psa 91:2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Psa 91:3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

Psa 91:4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Psa 91:5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Psa 91:6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

When pay-day comes
our eyes shall see the wages of the wicked.

Psa 91:7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Lev 26:8 And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put ten thousand to flight: and your enemies shall fall before you by the sword.

Psa 91:8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Psa 91:9 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

Psa 91:10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

Two verses used by Satan
to temp Jesus in the wilderness

Psa 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge[1] over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

1 "CHARGE": 6680. tsavah, tsaw-vaw'; a prim. root; (intens.) to constitute, enjoin:--apppoint, (for-) bid. (give a) charge, (give a, give in, send with) command (-er, ment), send a messenger, put, (set) in order.

Psa 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Satan tempting Jesus in the wilderness. Note that he left off, "to keep thee in all thy ways" and added the words, "at any time".

Mat 4:6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Psa 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Ever wonder why Satan didn't quote this verse to Jesus? The word adder means serpent. Two of Satan's names are the serpent and the dragon. I guess he didn't want to discuss his demise with Jesus. Change a little here and a little there and Satan has his way. Satan is trying to prevent Genesis 3:14-15 from happening.

Gen 3:14 And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Gen 3:15 And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

That's how you kill a snake you know. Go right for the head. The control center.

Psa 91:14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

Psa 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.

Psa 91:16 With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation.

A song for the Sabbath day

Psa 92:1 A Psalm or Song for the sabbath day. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High:

Psa 92:2 To show forth thy lovingkindness in the morning, and thy faithfulness every night,

Psa 92:3 Upon an instrument of ten strings, and upon the psaltery; upon the harp with a solemn sound.

Psa 92:4 For thou, LORD, hast made me glad through thy work: I will triumph in the works of thy hands.

Psa 92:5 O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

Psa 92:6 A brutish man knoweth not; neither doth a fool understand this.

Psa 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:

Psa 92:8 But thou, LORD, art most high for evermore.

Psa 92:9 For, lo, thine enemies, O LORD, for, lo, thine enemies shall perish; all the workers of iniquity shall be scattered.

Psa 92:10 But my horn shalt thou exalt like the horn of an unicorn: I shall be anointed with fresh oil.

Psa 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.

There is no unrighteousness in God

Psa 92:12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.

Psa 92:13 Those that be planted in the house of the LORD shall flourish in the courts of our God.

Psa 92:14 They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing;

Psa 92:15 To show that the LORD is upright: he is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in him.

Majesty and strength are God's clothing

Psa 93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.

Psa 93:2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.

Psa 93:3 The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.

Psa 93:4 The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.

Psa 93:5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.

To whom does vengeance belong?

Psa 94:1 O LORD God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, show thyself.

Rom 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

Psa 94:2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.

How long shall the wicked triumph

Psa 94:3 LORD, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?

Psa 94:4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?

Psa 94:5 They break in pieces thy people, O LORD, and afflict thine heritage.

Psa 94:6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.

Psa 94:7 Yet they say, The LORD shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.

Psa 94:8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?

Psa 94:9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?

Psa 94:10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?

God knows our thoughts

Psa 94:11 The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.

Mat 9:4 And Jesus knowing their thoughts said, Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?

1 Cor 3:20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

Psa 94:12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O LORD, and teachest him out of thy law;

Psa 94:13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

Psa 94:14 For the LORD will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.

Psa 94:15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.

Psa 94:16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?

Psa 94:17 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.

Psa 94:18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up.

Psa 94:19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

Psa 94:20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?

The wicked shall be cut off

Psa 94:21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.

Psa 94:22 But the LORD is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.

Psa 94:23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the LORD our God shall cut them off.

Make a joyful noise unto God, our maker

Psa 95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

Psa 95:2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

Psa 95:3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

Psa 95:4 In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.

Psa 95:5 The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

Psa 95:6 O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker.

We are the sheep of His hand

Psa 95:7 For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. To day if ye will hear his voice,

Psa 95:8 Harden not your heart, as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

Psa 95:9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my work.

Psa 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:

Psa 95:11 Unto whom I sware in my wrath that they should not enter into my rest.

Sing unto the LORD, all the earth

Psa 96:1 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth.

Psa 96:2 Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; show forth his salvation from day to day.

Psa 96:3 Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.

Other gods are idols, but God made the heavens

Psa 96:4 For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods.

Psa 96:8 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.

He shall judge the people righteously

Psa 96:11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof.

The Lord cometh. He cometh to judge the earth

Psa 96:12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is therein: then shall all the trees of the wood rejoice

Psa 96:13 Before the LORD: for he cometh, for he cometh to judge the earth: he shall judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.

The heavens declare God's righteousness

Psa 97:1 The LORD reigneth; let the earth rejoice; let the multitude of isles be glad thereof.

Psa 97:2 Clouds and darkness are round about him: righteousness and judgment are the habitation of his throne.

Psa 97:3 A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.

Psa 97:4 His lightnings enlightened the world: the earth saw, and trembled.

Psa 97:5 The hills melted like wax at the presence of the LORD, at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.

Psa 97:8 Zion heard, and was glad; and the daughters of Judah rejoiced because of thy judgments, O LORD.

Those that love God, hate evil

Psa 103:10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

Psa 103:11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

As far as the east is from the west

Psa 103:12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Isa 43:25 I, even I, am he that blotteth out thy transgressions for mine own sake, and will not remember thy sins.

Psa 103:16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

Psa 103:17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

Psa 103:18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

Psa 103:19 The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.

Psa 103:20 Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.

Psa 104:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

Psa 104:2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:

Psa 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:

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

Psa 104:4 Who maketh his angels spirits[1]; his ministers a flaming fire:

Jer 31:36 If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the LORD, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever.

Creation of the sea shore

Psa 104:6 Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.

For God to cover the earth with water it must have not been covered prior to doing so. See Genesis 1:2.

2 Pet 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

Psa 104:7 At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted[1] away.

1 "HASTED": 2648. chaphaz, khaw-faz'; a prim. root; prop. to start up suddenly, i.e. (by impl.) to hasten away, to fear:--(make) haste (away), tremble.

Psa 104:8 They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.

The natural order of the workings of water and it's circuitry on this planet. Put in place by the Almighty God.

Psa 104:9 Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.

God made the coast lines.

The water circuits of the earth

The next four verses tells of this water system set up by God and it's purpose.

Psa 104:10 He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.

Psa 104:11 They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.

Psa 104:12 By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.

Psa 104:13 He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.

God supplies the needs of all life

Psa 104:14 He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;

Psa 104:15 And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart.

Psa 104:16 The trees of the LORD are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;

Psa 104:17 Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.

Psa 104:18 The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.

The seasons

Psa 104:19 He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.

Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Gen 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Gen 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Psa 104:20 Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.

Psa 104:21 The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.

Psa 104:22 The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.

Man is to work until the evening

Psa 104:23 Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.

Psa 104:24 O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

Psa 104:25 So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.

Psa 104:26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

Psa 104:27 These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.

Psa 104:28 That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.

Psa 104:29 Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.

Psa 104:30 Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.

Isa 65:17 For, behold, I create new[1] heavens and a new earth: and the former[2] shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

Psa 104:31 The glory of the LORD shall endure for ever: the LORD shall rejoice in his works.

Psa 104:32 He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.

Psa 104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

Psa 104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.

Psa 104:35 Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the LORD, O my soul. Praise ye the LORD.

Some details of the wondrous works of God

Psa 105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.

Psa 105:2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.

Psa 105:3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

Psa 105:4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

Psa 105:5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

Psa 105:6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

Psa 105:7 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

God's covenant with Abraham

Psa 105:8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.

Psa 105:9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;

Gen 17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly.

Gen 17:3 And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

Gen 17:4 As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations.

Psa 105:10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:

Psa 105:11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

Psa 105:12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.

Psa 105:13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;

Psa 105:14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;

Psa 105:15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

Zec 4:14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Joseph coming to great power in Egypt

Psa 105:16 Moreover he called for a famine upon the land: he brake the whole staff of bread.

Psa 105:17 He sent a man before them, even Joseph, who was sold for a servant:

Psa 105:18 Whose feet they hurt with fetters: he was laid in iron:

Psa 105:19 Until the time that his word came: the word of the LORD tried him.

Psa 105:20 The king sent and loosed him; even the ruler of the people, and let him go free.

Psa 105:21 He made him lord of his house, and ruler of all his substance:

Psa 105:22 To bind his princes at his pleasure; and teach his senators wisdom.

Psa 105:23 Israel also came into Egypt; and Jacob sojourned in the land of Ham.

Psa 105:24 And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.

Psa 105:25 He turned their heart to hate his people, to deal subtly with his servants.

The plagues brought upon Egypt by God

Psa 105:26 He sent Moses his servant; and Aaron whom he had chosen.

Psa 105:27 They showed his signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.

Psa 105:28 He sent darkness, and made it dark; and they rebelled not against his word.

Psa 105:29 He turned their waters into blood, and slew their fish.

Psa 105:30 Their land brought forth frogs in abundance, in the chambers of their kings.

Psa 105:31 He spake, and there came divers sorts of flies, and lice in all their coasts.

Psa 105:32 He gave them hail for rain, and flaming fire in their land.

Psa 105:33 He smote their vines also and their fig trees; and brake the trees of their coasts.

Psa 105:34 He spake, and the locusts came, and caterpillars, and that without number,

Psa 105:35 And did eat up all the herbs in their land, and devoured the fruit of their ground.

Psa 105:36 He smote also all the firstborn in their land, the chief of all their strength.

Israel coming out of Egypt with great abundance

Psa 105:37 He brought them forth also with silver and gold: and there was not one feeble person among their tribes.

Psa 105:38 Egypt was glad when they departed: for the fear of them fell upon them.

God taking care of them while in the wilderness

Psa 105:39 He spread a cloud for a covering; and fire to give light in the night.

Psa 105:40 The people asked, and he brought quails, and satisfied them with the bread of heaven.

Psa 105:41 He opened the rock, and the waters gushed out; they ran in the dry places like a river.

Psa 105:42 For he remembered his holy promise, and Abraham his servant.

Psa 105:43 And he brought forth his people with joy, and his chosen with gladness:

Psa 105:44 And gave them the lands of the heathen: and they inherited the labour of the people;

Psa 105:45 That they might observe his statutes, and keep his laws. Praise ye the LORD.

God's mercy endures for ever

Psa 106:1 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

1 Chr 16:34 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever.

Psa 106:2 Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can show forth all his praise?

Psa 106:3 Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times.

Psa 106:4 Remember me, O LORD, with the favour that thou bearest unto thy people: O visit me with thy salvation;

Psa 106:5 That I may see the good of thy chosen, that I may rejoice in the gladness of thy nation, that I may glory with thine inheritance.

Like our fore-fathers we have sinned

Psa 106:6 We have sinned with our fathers, we have committed iniquity, we have done wickedly.

Psa 106:7 Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt; they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies; but provoked him at the sea, even at the Red sea.

Psa 106:8 Nevertheless he saved them for his name's sake, that he might make his mighty power to be known.

Save them for who's sake?

Psa 106:9 He rebuked the Red sea also, and it was dried up: so he led them through the depths, as through the wilderness.

Psa 106:10 And he saved them from the hand of him that hated them, and redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

Psa 106:11 And the waters covered their enemies: there was not one of them left.

Psa 106:12 Then believed they his words; they sang his praise.

How soon we forget

Psa 106:13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:

Psa 106:14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.

Psa 106:15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

Psa 106:16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD.

Psa 106:17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.

Psa 106:18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.

Psa 106:19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.

Psa 106:20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

Psa 106:21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

Psa 106:22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.

Moses convinces God, not to destroy His people

Psa 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.

Psa 106:24 Yea, they despised the pleasant land, they believed not his word:

Psa 106:25 But murmured in their tents, and hearkened not unto the voice of the LORD.

Psa 106:26 Therefore he lifted up his hand against them, to overthrow them in the wilderness:

Psa 106:27 To overthrow their seed also among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands.

Psa 106:28 They joined themselves also unto Baalpeor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead.

Psa 106:29 Thus they provoked him to anger with their inventions: and the plague brake in upon them.

Phinehas, executing judgment

Psa 106:30 Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment: and so the plague was stayed.

Num 25:7 And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he rose up from among the congregation, and took a javelin in his hand;

Num 25:8 And he went after the man of Israel into the tent, and thrust both of them through, the man of Israel, and the woman through her belly. So the plague was stayed from the children of Israel.

Psa 106:31 And that was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore.

Psa 106:32 They angered him also at the waters of strife, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes:

Psa 106:33 Because they provoked his spirit, so that he spake unadvisedly with his lips.

From idol worship to sacrificing their children

Psa 106:34 They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the LORD commanded them:

Psa 106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.

Psa 106:36 And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.

Psa 106:37 Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,

Jer 32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

Psa 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 blood.

Psa 106:39 Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.

Psa 106:40 Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

Psa 106:41 And he gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them.

Psa 106:42 Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand.

Many times God delivered them

Psa 106:43 Many times did he deliver them; but they provoked him with their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.

Psa 106:44 Nevertheless he regarded their affliction, when he heard their cry:

Psa 106:45 And he remembered for them his covenant, and repented according to the multitude of his mercies.

Psa 106:46 He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them captives.

Psa 106:47 Save us, O LORD our God, and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.

Psa 106:48 Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting: and let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye the LORD.

 

Thanks, for allowing me, to share this with you. Remember, to always, study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

In His Word,
