Dreamed of reading Psalm 93

Post by usemeLord on Mon Sep 07, 2009 10:30 am

It was a very short dream where I was asked to read Psalm 93 and in my mind I was wondering if it should be Psalm 91. The End



Psalm 93

1.
The LORD reigns, he is robed in majesty; the LORD is robed in majesty and is armed with strength. The world is firmly established;it cannot be moved.

2.

Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity.

3.

The seas have lifted up, O Lord, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.

4.

Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea-- the LORD on high is mighty.

5. Your statutes stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days, O Lord



Psalm 91:1. He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2. I will say of the Lord, "He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust." 3. Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare and from the deadly pestilence. 4. He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. 5.You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, 6.nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. 7.A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. 8.You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. 9.If you make the Most High your dwelling-- even the Lord, who is my refuge-- 10. then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent. 11. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; 12. they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. 13. You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. 14. "Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. 15. He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. 16. With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation."

The Theory of Israelite kingship and the role of the annual enthronement of God as King in providing the root metaphor for that belief

We are "inundated" with problems, "overwhelmed" by troubles, "buried" with concerns. Will the waters of our lives be "handled" by God the same way that he handled the waters of creation?

The first two verses of the Psalm emphasize God's power and secure throne. Verse 3, however, is the "challenge" verse. Despite the fact that God is enthroned, the waters exist.

it teaches us that life isn't simply about the drama of God subduing the floods; something else is going on. What is that? God has given us Torah. The word for "decrees" in v. 5 is one of the several terms for the commandments of God found in Ps 119.


From the story of God's subduing the waters of chaos, from the stories we tell of God subduing the waters of our own chaotic existence
May the Lord Bless you and Keep you
