BE MERCIFUL TO ME

Psalms 57:1-11 Paraphrased >

Be merciful to me, Oh God, be merciful to me! My soul trusts in you. Yes, in the shadow of your wings will I make my refuge. I will abide there until these calamities be overpast. I cry unto you El Elyon, the Most High God.

I cry unto God that performs all things for my good. The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. He has gotten the victory and delivers us from the clutches of the enemy. Pause, and think on these things! *Phil 4:8

Moses brought us the law as given by God. Jesus Christ came to show mercy by grace through faith and teach us truth. Still, my soul is among religious devils that are like lions. I am constantly aware of false prophets set on fire from hell. There teeth are as lion’s teeth. They attempt to pierce my conscious as a spear or arrow. Their tongue is a sharp sword.

But, I exalt you, Oh God, above the heavens. Your glory is above all the earth and world order. Yet they prepare a net for my steps. My soul is in anguish. They have dug a pit for me and have fallen into it themselves. How I trust you Sovereign LORD! Pause, and think on these things!

My heart is fixed, Oh God, my heart is fixed. I will sing praises as you deserve all the glory. I will praise you on the stringed instruments, on percussion and on the harp; by any means I find. I will wake up and praise you LORD and not be ashamed. I will sing unto you among people of all ethnicities.

Your mercy is great unto the heavens and your truth higher than the clouds. Your glory is above all the earth and the ways of mankind. Amen!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting PSALMISTE PASTORALE!

I HAVE A “YET PRAISE,” IN ME!

I lift my hands up unto thy name! My lips shall praise thee, thus will I bless thee! I will lift up my hands unto thy name!

Psalm 42:1-11 Paraphrased in my BG Version, the BGV >

Intro: I feel like this blog is one of with a “Message Of Hope!” Please feel free to share it with others!

As the deer pants for a stream of water my soul longs for you God. The enemy may chase me so strong as I run through this wilderness called life. I am searching for that refreshing waterhole that I might gain strength. I wonder if I shall find rest and be refreshed. The enemy pursues and the chase is on. My soul is thirsty for Your presence to satisfy me. Although it sometimes seems that this race is almost over!

Oh, how the hot tears flow down my cheeks at random times. They fill me up up inside as my heart fills with sorrow. I hear the accusation of, Just where is your God now? Sorrow pangs at my heavy heart when I remember these words. My soul in anguish melts like wax within me.

I am in the greatest battle ever fought in my mind. I feel swayed by the world to adapt to their line of thinking. I go to the house of worship with many people to honor you LORD! I go with the voice of joy and praise. Why do I still feel so cast down and so troubled inside? My trust is in you LORD but life makes me feel so uneasy.

I cling to my hope in God. I know he will be my strong support. I shall yet praise him for the glory of his face shining on me. I have a “Yet Praise,” working in me! God, my soul feels like an outcast. But, I remember how you helped me cross over. You fulfill your promises. I am like the deer being chased. However, I know you are with me. You are the God of the hills and valleys!

Deep calls unto deep at the noise of your waterspouts. My soul is blessed as rushing waves of glory flow over me. Lord you show your lovingkindness all the day long! At nighttime your song resonates in my heart so that I can rest peacefully. Yet, I still pray this prayer unto you God to help me. I need your assurance as my eyes close in rest. You are my Lord, my rock!

I cry, Why have you forgotten me? Why do I mourn so much from the oppression of the enemy? It is as a piercing sword run through my flesh into my bones. My enemies are always berating me. They constantly scold me with angry words. Where is your God? Why are you so down if he is all that great? And, why do you not have peace? Oh, but I do have his tranquil presence!

My answer is that I hope in God. My joy is not bound by the circumstances of this life. I know full well the calm assurance of the Holy Spirit. And, I shall “Yet Praise,” him, who is the health of my countenance and my God! He is my deliverer!

Have a wonderful day!

THE LORD DELIVERS

Psalm 41:1-13 Paraphrased >

Blessed is he that considers the poor. The LORD will deliver him in time of trouble. The LORD will preserve him, and keep him alive. He shall be blessed upon the earth. You will not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing. You will make him to lie his bed in sickness. I said, LORD, be merciful unto me and heal my soul. I have sinned against you. My enemies speak evil of me, When shall he die and his name perish?

My enemy comes to see me and speaks vanity. His heart walks in lawlessness wherever he goes. His words betray him. All that hate me whisper together against me. They seek to devise my hurt. They say an evil disease has taken me over. He lies down in affliction and will not rise up again.

Yes, my own familiar friend, in whom I trusted, which did eat of my bread. He lifted up his heel against me. But thou, Oh LORD, be merciful unto me. Raise me up that I may requite them. By this I know that you favor me. My enemy does not triumph over me.

And as for me, you uphold me in mine integrity. You set me before your face forever. Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.

Have a wonderful day!

BETTER LISTEN TO GOD

Psalm 78:1-72 NLT >

O my people, listen to my instructions. Open your ears to what I am saying, for I will speak to you in a parable. I will teach you hidden lessons from our past— stories we have heard and known, stories our ancestors handed down to us.

We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about his power and his mighty wonders. For he issued his laws to Jacob; he gave his instructions to Israel.

He commanded our ancestors to teach them to their children, so the next generation might know them— even the children not yet born— and they in turn will teach their own children. So each generation should set its hope anew on God, not forgetting his glorious miracles and obeying his commands.

Then they will not be like their ancestors— stubborn, rebellious, and unfaithful, refusing to give their hearts to God. The warriors of Ephraim, though armed with bows, turned their backs and fled on the day of battle. They did not keep God’s covenant and refused to live by his instructions.

They forgot what he had done— the great wonders he had shown them, the miracles he did for their ancestors on the plain of Zoan in the land of Egypt. For he divided the sea and led them through, making the water stand up like walls!

In the daytime he led them by a cloud, and all night by a pillar of fire. He split open the rocks in the wilderness to give them water, as from a gushing spring. He made streams pour from the rock, making the waters flow down like a river! Yet they kept on sinning against him, rebelling against the Most High in the desert.

They stubbornly tested God in their hearts, demanding the foods they craved. They even spoke against God himself, saying, “God can’t give us food in the wilderness. Yes, he can strike a rock so water gushes out, but he can’t give his people bread and meat.” When the Lord heard them, he was furious.

The fire of his wrath burned against Jacob. Yes, his anger rose against Israel, for they did not believe God or trust him to care for them. But he commanded the skies to open; he opened the doors of heaven. He rained down manna for them to eat; he gave them bread from heaven. They ate the food of angels!

God gave them all they could hold. He released the east wind in the heavens and guided the south wind by his mighty power. He rained down meat as thick as dust— birds as plentiful as the sand on the seashore! He caused the birds to fall within their camp and all around their tents.

The people ate their fill. He gave them what they craved. But before they satisfied their craving, while the meat was yet in their mouths, the anger of God rose against them, and he killed their strongest men. He struck down the finest of Israel’s young men. But in spite of this, the people kept sinning.

Despite his wonders, they refused to trust him. So he ended their lives in failure, their years in terror. When God began killing them, they finally sought him. They repented and took God seriously. Then they remembered that God was their rock, that God Most High was their redeemer.

But all they gave him was lip service; they lied to him with their tongues. Their hearts were not loyal to him. They did not keep his covenant. Yet he was merciful and forgave their sins and did not destroy them all. Many times he held back his anger and did not unleash his fury!

For he remembered that they were merely mortal, gone like a breath of wind that never returns. Oh, how often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved his heart in that dry wasteland. Again and again they tested God’s patience and provoked the Holy One of Israel.

They did not remember his power and how he rescued them from their enemies. They did not remember his miraculous signs in Egypt, his wonders on the plain of Zoan. For he turned their rivers into blood, so no one could drink from the streams.

He sent vast swarms of flies to consume them and hordes of frogs to ruin them. He gave their crops to caterpillars; their harvest was consumed by locusts. He destroyed their grapevines with hail and shattered their sycamore-figs with sleet.

He abandoned their cattle to the hail, their livestock to bolts of lightning. He loosed on them his fierce anger— all his fury, rage, and hostility. He dispatched against them a band of destroying angels. He turned his anger against them; he did not spare the Egyptians’ lives but ravaged them with the plague.

He killed the oldest son in each Egyptian family, the flower of youth throughout the land of Egypt. But he led his own people like a flock of sheep, guiding them safely through the wilderness. He kept them safe so they were not afraid; but the sea covered their enemies.

He brought them to the border of his holy land, to this land of hills he had won for them. He drove out the nations before them; he gave them their inheritance by lot. He settled the tribes of Israel into their homes. But they kept testing and rebelling against God Most High. They did not obey his laws.

They turned back and were as faithless as their parents. They were as undependable as a crooked bow. They angered God by building shrines to other gods; they made him jealous with their idols. When God heard them, he was very angry, and he completely rejected Israel.

Then he abandoned his dwelling at Shiloh, the Tabernacle where he had lived among the people. He allowed the Ark of his might to be captured; he surrendered his glory into enemy hands. He gave his people over to be butchered by the sword, because he was so angry with his own people—his special possession.

Their young men were killed by fire; their young women died before singing their wedding songs. Their priests were slaughtered, and their widows could not mourn their deaths. Then the Lord rose up as though waking from sleep, like a warrior aroused from a drunken stupor.

He routed his enemies and sent them to eternal shame. But he rejected Joseph’s descendants; he did not choose the tribe of Ephraim. He chose instead the tribe of Judah, and Mount Zion, which he loved. There he built his sanctuary as high as the heavens, as solid and enduring as the earth.

He chose his servant David, calling him from the sheep pens. He took David from tending the ewes and lambs and made him the shepherd of Jacob’s descendants— God’s own people, Israel. He cared for them with a true heart and led them with skillful hands.

Have a wonderful day!

CRY OUT IN DESPAIR

Psalm 77:1-20 NLT >

I cry out to God; yes, I shout. Oh, that God would listen to me! When I was in deep trouble, I searched for the Lord. All night long I prayed, with hands lifted toward heaven, but my soul was not comforted. I think of God, and I moan, overwhelmed with longing for his help. Interlude

You don’t let me sleep. I am too distressed even to pray! I think of the good old days, long since ended, when my nights were filled with joyful songs. I search my soul and ponder the difference now. Has the Lord rejected me forever?

Will he never again be kind to me? Is his unfailing love gone forever? Have his promises permanently failed? Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has he slammed the door on his compassion? Interlude

And I said, “This is my fate; the Most High has turned his hand against me.” But then I recall all you have done, O Lord; I remember your wonderful deeds of long ago. They are constantly in my thoughts. I cannot stop thinking about your mighty works. O God, your ways are holy. Is there any god as mighty as you?

You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate your awesome power among the nations. By your strong arm, you redeemed your people, the descendants of Jacob and Joseph. Interlude

When the Red Sea saw you, O God, its waters looked and trembled! The sea quaked to its very depths. The clouds poured down rain; the thunder rumbled in the sky. Your arrows of lightning flashed. Your thunder roared from the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world! The earth trembled and shook.

Your road led through the sea, your pathway through the mighty waters— a pathway no one knew was there! You led your people along that road like a flock of sheep, with Moses and Aaron as their shepherds.

Have a wonderful day!

GOD’S MIGHT AGAINST NATIONS!

Psalms 76:1-12 KJV – These verses are worth studying considering our present time in history!

Intro from John Gill’s Exposition: To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph. The Targum is,

“by the hand of Asaph:’

concerning “neginoth”, see the title of Psalm 4:1, this psalm is generally thought to be written on account of some great appearance of God for the Jews, or victory obtained by them over their enemies, either the Ammonites in the times of David; so the first part of the Syriac inscription is, “

“when Rabbah of the children of Ammon was destroyed;’

see 2 Samuel 12:26 or in the time of Jehoshaphat, when they came up against him, and were in a wonderful manner defeated, which occasioned great joy and thankfulness, 2 Chronicles 20:1. The Septuagint version entitles the psalm “an ode against the Assyrian”, in which it is followed by the Vulgate Latin and Ethiopic versions: and it is the opinion of many that it was written on account of the defeat of Sennacherib, and his army, which came up against Jerusalem in the times of Hezekiah, and was destroyed by an angel in one night, and so slept their sleep, and a dead one, with which agree Psalm 76:5, so Arama and Theodoret; Jarchi gives this reason for such an interpretation, because we do not find that any enemy fell at or near Jerusalem but he, as is said Psalm 76:3, “there brake he the arrows of the bow”, &c. nor was one arrow suffered to be thrown into the city, 2 Kings 19:32. Kimchi and Ben Melech interpret it of the war of Gog and Magog, yet to come; and the latter part of the Syriac inscription is,

“moreover it shows the vengeance of the judgment of Christ against the ungodly;’

and indeed it seems to point out the latter day, when Christ shalt destroy the antichristian kings and states, and save his own people, and shall be feared and praised; as the former part of it may respect his incarnation, appearance, and dwelling in the land of Judea, and so the whole is of the same argument with the preceding Psalm.

*Commentary on the following verses by Jamieson, Fausset, Brown! Scripture references are provided for your further study!

1 [[To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song of Asaph.]] In Judah is God known: his name is great in Israel. 2 In Salem also is his tabernacle, and his dwelling place in Zion.

•Verse 1-2

Psalm 76:1-12. On Neginoth – (See on Psalm 4:1, title). This Psalm commemorates what the preceding anticipates: God‘s deliverance of His people by a signal interposition of power against their enemies. The occasion was probably the events narrated in 2 Kings 19:35; Isaiah 37:1-28. (Compare Psalm 46:1-11).

These well-known terms denote God‘s people and Church and His intimate and glorious relations to them. •Verse 2

Salem — (Genesis 14:18) is Jerusalem.

3 There brake he the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.

•Verse 3

the arrows — literally, “thunderbolts” (Psalm 78:48), from their rapid flight or ignition (compare Psalm 18:14; Ephesians 6:16).

the battle — for arms (Hosea 2:18).

     4 Thou art more glorious and excellent than the mountains of prey.

•Verse 4

Thou — God.

mountains of prey — great victorious nations, as Assyria (Isaiah 41:15; Ezekiel 38:11, Ezekiel 38:12; Zechariah 4:7).

5 The stouthearted are spoiled, they have slept their sleep: and none of the men of might have found their hands.

•Verse 5

slept their sleep — died (Psalm 13:3).

none … found … hands — are powerless.

6 At thy rebuke, O God of Jacob, both the chariot and horse are cast into a dead sleep.

•Verse 6

chariot and horse — for those fighting on them (compare Psalm 68:17).

     7 Thou, even thou, art to be feared: and who may stand in thy sight when once thou art angry?

•Verse 7

sight — contend with Thee (Deuteronomy 9:4; Joshua 7:12).

8 Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still, 9 When God arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. Selah.

•Verse 8-9

God‘s judgment on the wicked is His people‘s deliverance (Psalm 9:12; Psalm 10:7).

     10 Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee: the remainder of wrath shalt thou restrain.

•Verse 10

Man‘s wrath praises God by its futility before His power.

restrain — or, “gird”; that is, Thyself, as with a sword, with which to destroy, or as an ornament to Thy praise.

11 Vow, and pay unto the LORD your God: let all that be round about him bring presents unto him that ought to be feared. 12 He shall cut off the spirit of princes: he is terrible to the kings of the earth.

•Verse 11-12

Invite homage to such a God (2 Chronicles 32:23), who can stop the breath of kings and princes when He wills (Daniel 5:23).

Have a wonderful day!

THE GOODNESS OF GOD

Psalms 36:1-12 Paraphrased >

The wicked man does transgress against God. My heart says there is no fear of God in his eyes. For he flattereth himself in his own eyes. His iniquity causes him to be hateful. The words of his mouth are lawless and deceitful. He has left off wisdom and doing good.

He deviseth mischief lying on his bed. He dreams up mischief in a way that is not good. Evil he does but despise. Lord your mercy reigns from heaven. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the great mountains. And your judgments are very deep. O Lord, you preserve man and beast.

How excellent Lord is your lovingkindness. The children of men put their trust under the shadow of your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the greatness of your house. They drink of the river of your pleasures. For with you is the fountain of life. We walk in your as you shine it on our path.

Continue your lovingkindness unto them that know you. Your righteousness keeps the upright in heart. Let not the pride of the wicked overtake me. There is the workers of iniquity that have fallen. They are cast down will never rise to life again.

Have a wonderful day!

ADVERSITY TO PRAISE

Psalms 35:1-28 Paraphrased >

Intro from John Gill’s Exposition:

“This psalm seems to have been written by David, when he was persecuted by Saul; and when many false charges were brought against him by his courtiers; and when he was the scorn and derision of the people; the subject of it is pretty much of the same kind with the seventh psalm, and might be written about the same time that was, and on the same occasion; and it may be applied to the church and people of God in like cases. There is a passage in it, Psalm 35:19, which our Lord seems to refer to and apply to himself, John 15:25; and some interpret the whole of it concerning him. The Arabic version calls it a prophecy of the incarnation; though there does not appear any thing in it applicable to that.”

Plead my cause Lord with them that strive with me. Fight against them that fight against me. Take hold of my shield, and stand up for me. Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me. Say unto my soul, I am your salvation. Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul.

Let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt. Let them be as chaff before the wind. The angel of the Lord chase them. Let their way be dark and slippery. May they angel of the Lord persecute them. For without cause have they hid for me their net in a pit.

They dug this pit without cause for my soul. Let destruction come upon him unaware. He will be the one to fall into it. Yet my soul shall be joyful in the Lord. It shall rejoice in his salvation. All my bones shall say, Lord, who is like you. You deliver the poor and the needy from him that is too strong. False witnesses did rise upon and charge me with things I knew nothing about. They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.

But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth I humbled my soul with fasting. My prayer seemed to not reach heaven. I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother. I bowed down heavily as one that mourns for his mother. But they rejoiced in my adversity and gathered together against me without my knowledge.

They tore at me without ceasing as hypocritical mockers observing feasts. They gnashed upon me with their teeth. Lord, how long will you look on? Rescue my soul from their destructions as from lions. I will give you thanks in the great congregation. I will praise you among much people. Let not them that are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me.

Let them not wink with the eye that hate me without a cause. They speak not peace devise deceitful matters against the quiet in the land. Yes they opened their mouth wide against me. They said, Aha, aha, we have seen him in trouble. Do not be silent and stay close to me.

Stir yourself up and awake to my judgment and to my cause. Judge me, Oh God, according to your righteousness. Let them not rejoice over me. Let them not say in their hearts this is what we want. Let them not say, We have swallowed him up. Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion that rejoice at mine hurt.

Clothe them with shame and dishonour that magnify themselves against me. Let them shout for joy and be glad that favor my righteous cause. Let them say continually the Lord be magnified. He has pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. My tongue shall speak of your righteousness and praise all the day long.

Have a wonderful day!

TASTE GOD’S GOODNESS

Psalm 34:1-22 Paraphrased >

I will bless the LORD at all times; his praise will continually be in my mouth. My soul boasts in the LORD. Let the humble hear and be glad. Magnify the LORD with let’s exalt his name together! I prayed and the LORD answered. He delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him radiate his love.

They need not show any shame on their faces. This poor man cried and the LORD heard him. He saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!

Child of God reverence the LORD and you will not be found lacking. The young lions suffer with hunger but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. Listen to me and I will teach you the fear of the LORD. What man is there who doesn’t desire to live long and enjoy a good life?

Keep your tongue from evil and your lips from speaking deceit. Turn away from evil and do good. Seek peace and pursue it. The LORD sees the righteous and He hears them. The face of the LORD is against those who do evil. He will cut off their memory from the earth. The righteous cry for help. The LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.

The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous. The LORD delivers him out of them all. He keeps all his bones; not one of them is broken. Affliction slays the wicked.

Those who hate the righteous will be condemned. The LORD redeems the life of his servants. None of those who take refuge in him will be condemned.

Have a wonderful day!

WE HOPE IN YOU

Psalm 33:1-22 ESV>

Shout for joy in the Lord, O you righteous! Praise befits the upright. Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts. For the word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness.

He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the Lord. By the word of the Lord the heavens were made, and by the breath of his mouth all their host. He gathers the waters of the sea as a heap; he puts the deeps in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord; let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him! For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! The Lord looks down from heaven; he sees all the children of man; from where he sits enthroned he looks out on all the inhabitants of the earth, he who fashions the hearts of them all and observes all their deeds.

The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue. Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let your steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in you.

Have a wonderful day!
