Chapter 107: Oh that man would praise the Lord!
“Oh that men would praise the Lord for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!” (Psalms 107: 8, 15, 21, and 31)
This EXACT verse is repeated 4 times through this Psalm, putting emphasis on praising the Lord and how simple it would be that if everyone did that!
This Psalm continues to talk about how the fool who sins will be lifted up; “Fools because of their transgression… are afflicted… they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, and he saveth them…” (Psalms 107:17-19)
We need to remember that even in our darkest hour… the Lord is there to save us from our troubles, if we LET HIM! “Whoso is wise… shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.” (Psalms 107:43) Just remember that the Lord loves us all and we are unwise to think that He doesn’t love us.
Chapter 108: David Praises God
A Song or Psalm of David
David praises the Lord and tells us that Judah (through Christ) is the Lord’s lawgiver. With God we can tread down our enemies!
