To get the goods from verse 56 you have to keep precepts - what exactly did the Psalmist mean? Great questions some hints in today's episode
The hidden treasures of the hundred and 19 verse 56 today.
How promising is once again we give a again in the Zion section and you know this whole concept of a we talked about it every time we come under this verse in each particular section and we talked about the Zion being the idea of being mindful is the sword that's coming and so this idea of what is that look like on the eighth versus the eight is always connected to the infinite and then continuing on, very importantly, well this I think your love is 56 versus is this I had because I kept thy precepts and you might remember. First we did yesterday or the 55th versus I have remembered by name of the Lord in the night and have kept thy law and in so you get sort of combination punch here like all will they were able to keep the law because they kept the precepts and they also got to remember my name at night because they get the precepts and so it leads us back to this, you know, we did the PDF on you know what are these 10 repeating words in the and the word precepts again is front and center in this particular study in in a this person had this in the end. Again, it's interesting to me that the word this starts with this Zion and really you know this.
I had is almost like it the way that it's spelled in the word had it in Hebrew is once again getting very close to the idea of the car. In other words, is mindful sword that is this coming through my mind so that I still have this stuff mindfully and since it's on the eighth verse you can think of this from an infinite standpoint because he kept these precepts which is because of them. In Hebrew, and we talked about this word several times its intriguing intriguing intriguing word to me because I you can hear lots of definitions on what the precepts mean but is the Hebrews, define it, you know, these are overarching concepts that attach to your heart like Grace or you know or or you know the love of God, those kind of things where you know hero, Israel, the Lord our God is one you know and love the heart, the Lord your heart and soul, with all your might. That will be owed is connected to this so you know you've got that and then you got to the root of the word precepts. Well I should say before I say that the board precept doesn't show up in Deuteronomy.
It doesn't show up in numbers or Genesis or Exodus. So the first time you see this chronologically is in the Psalms right. King David uses it before anybody else uses it. Nehemiah uses it later, but chronologically even though Nehemiah comes before Psalms that was after the exile, so here comes this word, it shows up and and again, when it be nice to know specifically what you know. These preclude him are so one of the hints that I think is beautiful to the word is the root of the word means to visit or to muster.
So we got King David here and in him being the military man he wasn't and to some extent you know this is a visit. This is a mustering with the commandments are I and and and so one thing I can be certain of about a hoodlum. Is it something that David did regularly when you look at the letters and preclude him. I find it just you know one of the things it is just my hobby. I guess I just love to look at the Hebrew and think about what it is that he's saying, because preclude him start for that purpose sound, which is a pay which is literally like the mouth of God. Like the face of God so you know when you're in his presence. You hear that sound and presence.
And so when you pray at scan this P that has to do with the mouth of God and and when they were in his presence in the garden again.
That starts with the letter pay and there's no accident there that we get the sense of the presence of God, and certainly of his mouth that that would begin the word preclude in the second letter is this proof which is the letter that begins the word holy okay so you got a holy presently clearly this is something big and it is something holy and and that could also kind of indicates that the King is coming down because the cliff goes lower below the line in any other letter and so it's a sense of coming after the glory of God. You know, coming down in order to do that and then it's got a vote of meaning continual and then a dominant in the course we study the whole dollar than the idea of servitude and the idea of of humility right at and so that M on the end of preclude them after the doll. It that's the suffix images means plural.
So we got plural put could map the good word is clearly I mean of the root of the word is to visit or to muster so I say all that to say I don't know in my heart of hearts yet exactly what the preclude a more okay and in I would challenge anybody tell me okay this not just show me all the good and right here. You know what they look like and so you're left to know one of the neat things the Bible is that sometimes are things that we just get to meditate on it and so the accouterments mentioned several times that you know I meditated on by particular, my, my, meditated on my precepts and so there's no doubt that that King David did a lot of that and he mustered that and that this is a critical thing that he got to enjoy on the eighth verse as I'm enjoying it right and so as I dug right yesterday.
You know how cool is it to be so mindful of God that we get to remember him in our dreams that we get to remember through this idea of the Zion right and and and so as we take this Zion after the vote of working to move on to the word that they actually the letter, which also is a word you see the end of the vote of you beget the Zion and when you put above in a Zion together, put it ahead of Tarik across the top you get the next letter, which is a hat which means life, but also it's a sense of a female energy going down in the vote of a male energy going. Excuse me. It's a male energy coming down in the five and a female energy going up in the Zion with a head Tarik across the top and so was this female energy is like we reflect God. Okay, when we think of it when we remember like we did throughout the whole Zion section, like we get to beat. We get to glorify God in the way we do that is by reflecting you know what it was. He put in us and our glory is is is is it says actually in the 16th Psalm or so is our glory rejoices was a good part of what design is, is when we actually are completely mindful and were using the gifts God gives us. We reflect God back to him and this marriage begets life which is were going to hat in the very next section. So as we come in here to the eighth part of it. We can see the significance of what King David is saying in his law that is we get closer to God through study study study of the law of the Torah you know of of the whole Bible clearly New Testament Old Testament all at stuff, the more we get to know God, the closer we become within the more mindful that we become with them. The more that we will reflect him with the glory that he gave us which will end up in a marriage and marriages, bear fruit, and fruit that is eternal and so as you think about this. I'll just leave y'all with that. Would love to talk to anybody anytime of the show does my email will be in there as well as again link 10 words that are repeated often and what they look like in Hebrew.
Thank you for listening
