Thoughts on Psalm 112

Am drawn to this Psalm, Psalm 112, lately! It is very Encouraging to read through it, thinking about YHVH looking on us, His children, and His Face “shining” as a pleased parent does when thinking about his or her “good” child.

Psalm 112: 1

HalleluYah! Blessed is the man who fears YHVH, who delights greatly in His commands.

Psalm 112: 2

His seed ( children ) shall be mighty on earth: the generation of the Upright shall be blessed.

Psalm 112: 3

Wealth and riches shall be in his house: and his Righteousness endures forever.

Psalm 112: 4

Unto the Upright there arises Light in the darkness: he is Gracious, and full of Compasaion, and Righteous.

Psalm 112: 5

A Good man shows favor, and lends ( to the needy ): he will guide his affairs ( words ) with discretion ( “good” judgment ).

Psalm 112: 6

Surely he shall not be moved forever: the Righteous shsll be in everlasting remembrance.

Psalm 112: 7

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trustjng in YHVH.

Psalm 112: 8

His heart is established, he shall not be afraid, until he sees ( Yah’s desire ) upon his enemies.

Psalm 112: 9

He has dispersed, he has given to the poor; his Righteousness endures forever; his Horn ( strength ) shall be exalted with Honor.

Psalm 112: 10

The wicked shall see, and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

Psalm 1: 1-6 comes to my mind, after reading “this” Psalm. ( grin )

And, I say: “Bless YHVH, O my soul!” ( from Psalm 103; while under age 18, I learned some verses in that Psalm ser to a melody! Melodies can be used to Help us Memorize important Bible Verses! )

Shalom
