Chapter 115: Idols are False Gods
Our God is in the heavens and not an Idol. In this Psalm the author explains why idols are False God’s.
“Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but they speak not; eyes have they, but they see not: They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not: They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat” (Psalm 115:4-7)
In other words, the author is telling us that idols are not god’s or even The God, because they cannot speak, hear, walk or feel. God the Father is like us, He has a body of flesh and blood. The only difference is that His body is perfected. We are blessed of the Lord and we should always praise him and not idols, made by human hands.
Chapter 116: Precious in the eyes of the Lord, the Death of the Saints
The author starts off this Psalm by saying that he loves the Lord, because he hears his voice of supplication. He tells us that he will always call upon the Lord. The Lord preserves the simple and will help in times of trouble. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints” (Psalms 116:15)
