Chapter 103: The Lord Shows Mercy
A Psalm of David
David is most likely addressing the saints, by telling them to bless the Lord for His mercy. He writes: “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide (scold or ‘tell someone off’): neither will he keep his anger for ever.” (Psalms 103:8-9). Essentially the Lord is very patient and only gets angry when he absolutely has to. Even if we are bad, He won’t always punish us with His hand… He likes to let us learn from our own mistakes.
We learn that “…heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.” (Psalms 103:11) If we fear the Lord, he will be more merciful to us.
Chapter 104: Honor and Majesty of the Lord
The Lord is clothed with honor and majesty, Him and His angels or ministers are as a flaming fire. The Lord created everything and lives in the heavens. He has created everything; plant life, animal life and the foundations of the earth. He dwells forever!
