Bible Study May 14

May 14, 2023

Today for Sunday our reading is from the book od Psalms, 32, 51, 86, 122.

Psalm 32

“Teach” to “instruct, direct. To point, shoot, aim, throw, cast in a straight manner.” The primary meaning “yawah” is to “shoot straight” or “direct the flow.” The most important Bible word derived from yawah is Torah which means the Law. The Law of Moses is actually the instruction Moses received from God for Israel.

Psalm 51

This is Psalm of penitence written by David after he had been confronted of his sin with Bathsheba. God’s Spirit prompts David to live according to truth. The absence of God’s presence is the same as the absence of His Spirit.

Psalm 86

The noun for “sign” appears 78 times in the Old Testament. The rainbow (Gen.9:12-17), circumcision (Gen. 17:11), the blood of the Passover Lamb (Ex. 12:13) are visible illustrations of something that cannot be seen, that is, an agreement between God and His people. David prays for a miracle of some sort of signboard his enemies will hear.

Psalm 122

Pray is to “ask, inquire, demand, desire, ask, or wish for.” In this Psalm for the sake of God’s people and for the sake of the Lord’s House we are instructed to seek Jerusalem’s good, that is, to inquire earnestly about it’s welfare, to pray for it’s peace, and ask with true concern about its condition.
