Apr 6 12 Psalms 25 26 34

  1. 1. Review <ul><li>Here’s a quick review of this weeks reading. David kills the Philistine hero Goliath. </li></ul>
  2. 2. Review <ul><li>As a result King Saul takes David in and he does not return to his father’s house. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Kindred Spirits <ul><li>King Saul’s son, heir to the throne, Jonathan becomes close friends with David. They are bound together in friendship. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Kindred Spirits <ul><li>The friendship between Jonathan and David went far beyond personal affinity and camaraderie. Scripture records that &quot;the soul of Jonathan was knit to the soul of David&quot;, indicating an unusually close bond between the two men. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Kindred Spirits <ul><li>This commitment was formalized with a covenant in which David agreed to show &quot;kindness&quot; to Jonathan's descendants. When he became king, David followed through on this promise by honoring Jonathan's son, Mephibosheth. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Kindred Spirits <ul><li>For his part, Jonathan showed amazing devotion to David by thwarting the evil intentions of his father, Saul, on several occasions. This loyalty was all the more remarkable given the fact that David was to become king, </li></ul>
  7. 7. Kindred Spirits <ul><li>even though Jonathan would have inherited the throne if God had not decided otherwise. </li></ul><ul><li>David and Jonathan took their covenant seriously. Jonathan remained loyal to David for the rest of his life, </li></ul>
  8. 8. Kindred Spirits <ul><li>and after David came into power he intentionally sought out a descendant of Jonathan in order to fulfill his agreement. David's faithfulness showed much about his character—and even saved a man's life. (Word in Life notes) </li></ul>
  9. 9. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>Wouldn’t you know women cause a riff between King Saul and David when they sing, &quot;Saul has struck down his thousands, but David his tens of thousands.&quot; </li></ul>
  10. 10. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>This made Saul very angry. The next day an evil spirit from God rushed upon Saul and he prophesied within his house. Now David was playing the lyre that day. </li></ul>
  11. 11. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>There was a spear in Saul's hand, and Saul threw the spear, thinking, &quot;I'll nail David to the wall!&quot; But David escaped from him on two different occasions. </li></ul>
  12. 12. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>So Saul feared David, because the Lord was with him but had departed from Saul. Saul removed David from his presence and made him a commanding officer. </li></ul>
  13. 13. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>David led the army out to battle and back. Now David acted wisely in all he did, for the Lord was with him. Then Saul said to David, &quot;Here's my oldest daughter, Merab. </li></ul>
  14. 14. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>I want to give her to you in marriage. Only be a brave warrior for me and fight the battles of the Lord.&quot; For Saul thought, </li></ul>
  15. 15. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>&quot;There's no need for me to raise my hand against him. Let it be the hand of the Philistines!&quot; </li></ul>
  16. 16. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>It ends up Merab is given to another man. Now Michal, Saul's daughter, loved David. When they told Saul about this, it pleased him. </li></ul>
  17. 17. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>David thought himself too lowly to become the Kings son in-law. So King Saul & David come to an agreement that David could pay the price of a hundred Philistine foreskins. </li></ul>
  18. 18. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>Again King Saul thought he could get the Philistines to kill David for him. </li></ul><ul><li>But is doesn’t work. David doubles it and brings the King two hundred Philistine foreskins and Michal becomes his wife. </li></ul>
  19. 19. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>This is how it was to be between King Saul and David. King Saul would always be attempting to kill David. Two of King Saul’s children, Jonathan and Michal aid David in escaping their father. </li></ul>
  20. 20. King Saul’s Attempts on David <ul><li>David escapes the evil plan of Saul. Note the great difference between </li></ul><ul><li>Saul (who said that God was on his side) </li></ul><ul><li>and David (who sought the word of the Lord!). </li></ul>
  21. 21. Psalm 25 By David <ul><li>Mathew Henry’s Concise Commentary divides Psalm 25 in to three sections. </li></ul><ul><li>Confidence in prayer </li></ul><ul><li>Prayer for remission of sin </li></ul><ul><li>For help in affliction </li></ul>
  22. 22. Confidence in Prayer <ul><li>Psalms 25:1 NET O LORD, I come before you in prayer. 2 My God, I trust in you. Please do not let me be humiliated; do not let my enemies triumphantly rejoice over me! </li></ul>
  23. 23. Confidence in P rayer <ul><li>3 Certainly none who rely on you will be humiliated. </li></ul><ul><li>Those who deal in treachery will be thwarted and humiliated. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Confidence in P rayer <ul><li>4 Make me understand your ways, O LORD! </li></ul><ul><li>Teach me your paths! 5 Guide me into your truth and teach me. </li></ul><ul><li>For you are the God who delivers me; </li></ul>
  25. 25. Confidence in P rayer <ul><li>on you I rely all day long. 6 Remember your compassionate and faithful deeds, O LORD, </li></ul><ul><li>for you have always acted in this manner. </li></ul>
  26. 26. Confidence in P rayer <ul><li>7 Do not hold against me the sins of my youth or my rebellious acts! </li></ul><ul><li>Because you are faithful to me, extend to me your favor, O LORD! </li></ul>
  27. 27. Prayer For Remission of Sins <ul><li>8 The LORD is both kind and fair; that is why he teaches sinners the right way to live. 9 May he show the humble what is right! May he teach the humble his way! </li></ul>
  28. 28. Prayer For Remission of Sins <ul><li>10 The LORD always proves faithful and reliable to those who follow the demands of his covenant. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Prayer For Remission of Sins <ul><li>11 For the sake of your reputation, O LORD, </li></ul><ul><li>forgive my sin, because it is great. </li></ul>
  30. 30. Prayer For Remission of Sins <ul><li>12 The LORD shows his faithful followers the way they should live. 13 They experience his favor; </li></ul><ul><li>their descendants inherit the land. </li></ul>
  31. 31. Prayer For Remission of Sins <ul><li>14 The LORD's loyal followers receive his guidance, and he reveals his covenantal demands to them. </li></ul>
  32. 32. For Help in Affliction <ul><li>15 I continually look to the LORD for help, </li></ul><ul><li>for he will free my feet from the enemy's net. </li></ul>
  33. 33. For Help in Affliction <ul><li>16 Turn toward me and have mercy on me, for I am alone and oppressed! 17 Deliver me from my distress; rescue me from my suffering! </li></ul>
  34. 34. For Help in Affliction <ul><li>18 See my pain and suffering! Forgive all my sins! 19 Watch my enemies, for they outnumber me; they hate me and want to harm me. </li></ul>
  35. 35. For Help in Affliction <ul><li>20 Protect me and deliver me! Please do not let me be humiliated, for I have taken shelter in you! </li></ul>
  36. 36. For Help in Affliction <ul><li>21 May integrity and godliness protect me, </li></ul><ul><li>for I rely on you! 22 O God, rescue Israel from all their distress! </li></ul>
  37. 37. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>The title affirms this to be a psalm of David, and there is no reason to doubt the correctness of the superscription; but there are no indications by which we can determine on what occasion it was written. </li></ul>
  38. 38. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>It is not difficult, however, to ascertain from its contents the state of mind in which it was composed; and as that state of mind is not uncommon among those who are the professed people of God, the psalm will be useful in all ages of the world. </li></ul>
  39. 39. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>The state of mind is that in which there is deep solicitude in regard to personal piety, or on the question whether the evidences of our piety, are genuine, and are such as we may rely on as warranting our hope of salvation. </li></ul>
  40. 40. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>In this state of mind, and under this deep solicitude, the psalmist appeals to God to search him, or to judge in his case; he then recounts the evidences on which he relied as a ground for concluding that he was truly a friend of God; </li></ul>
  41. 41. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>and then expresses the earliest desire of his heart to be found among the friends of God, and not to be united in character or in destiny with the wicked. </li></ul><ul><li>The psalm, therefore, properly consists of three parts: </li></ul>
  42. 42. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>I. A solemn appeal to God, or an earnest prayer that He would examine and judge of the evidences of piety on which the psalmist was accustomed to rely. </li></ul>
  43. 43. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>He was conscious of integrity or uprightness of intention, but he still felt that there was a possibility that he might deceive himself, and he, therefore, prays that God would search his heart and try his reins - that He would examine the evidences of his personal piety, and save him from delusion. </li></ul>
  44. 44. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>Psalms 26:1 NET Vindicate me, O LORD, for I have integrity, </li></ul><ul><li>and I trust in the LORD without wavering. </li></ul>
  45. 45. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>2 Examine me, O LORD, and test me! </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluate my inner thoughts and motives! </li></ul>
  46. 46. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>II. A statement of the evidences on which he relied. These evidences were the following: </li></ul><ul><li>(1) That God’s loving-kindness was before his eyes, and that he had walked in his truth. </li></ul>
  47. 47. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>3 For I am ever aware of your faithfulness, </li></ul><ul><li>and your loyalty continually motivates me. </li></ul>
  48. 48. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>(2) That he had not been the companion of the wicked, nor had he delighted to associate with them. </li></ul><ul><li>4 I do not associate with deceitful men, or consort with those who are dishonest. </li></ul>
  49. 49. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>5 I hate the mob of evil men, and do not associate with the wicked. </li></ul><ul><li>(3) The desire of his heart to approach the altar of God with purity, and to celebrate the praises of God; or his delight in public worship </li></ul>
  50. 50. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>6 I maintain a pure lifestyle, so I can appear before your altar, O LORD, 7 to give you thanks, and to tell about all your amazing deeds. </li></ul>
  51. 51. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>(4) That he had loved the place where God dwelt, or the habitation of his house, </li></ul><ul><li>8 O LORD, I love the temple where you live, the place where your splendor is revealed. </li></ul>
  52. 52. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>III. His earnest wish to be found among the friends of God, or to have his portion with them. </li></ul><ul><li>9 Do not sweep me away with sinners, or execute me along with violent people, </li></ul>
  53. 53. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>10 who are always ready to do wrong or offer a bribe. 11 But I have integrity! Rescue me and have mercy on me! </li></ul>
  54. 54. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>In reference to all this, he asks the guidance and direction of God; he prays for the searching of His eye; he pleads that God would enable him sincerely to carry out these desires and purposes of his soul. </li></ul>
  55. 55. Psalm 26 By David <ul><li>The psalm is a beautiful illustration of the nature of true religion, and of the desire of a truly pious man that all the evidences of his piety - all which is his ground of reliance - may be submitted to the searching eye of God. (Barnes) </li></ul>
  56. 56. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>Written by David, when he pretended to be insane before Abimelech, causing the king to send him away. </li></ul>
  57. 57. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>Mathew Henry’s Concise Commentary divides Psalm 34 in to two sections. </li></ul><ul><li>David praises God, and encourages to trust him </li></ul><ul><li>He exhorts to fear </li></ul>
  58. 58. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>Psalms 34:1 NET I will praise the LORD at all times; my mouth will continually praise him. 2 I will boast in the LORD; let the oppressed hear and rejoice! </li></ul>
  59. 59. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>3 Magnify the LORD with me! Let's praise his name together! 4 I sought the LORD's help and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. </li></ul>
  60. 60. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>5 Those who look to him for help are happy; their faces are not ashamed. 6 This oppressed man cried out and the LORD heard; he saved him from all his troubles. </li></ul>
  61. 61. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>7 The LORD's angel camps around the LORD's loyal followers and delivers them. 8 Taste and see that the LORD is good! How blessed is the one who takes shelter in him! </li></ul>
  62. 62. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>9 Remain loyal to the LORD, you chosen people of his, for his loyal followers lack nothing! </li></ul>
  63. 63. Psalm 34 By David <ul><li>10 Even young lions sometimes lack food and are hungry, but those who seek the LORD lack no good thing. </li></ul>
  64. 64. He Exhorts to Fear <ul><li>11 Come children! Listen to me! I will teach you what it means to fear the LORD. 12 Do you want to really live? Would you love to live a long, happy life? </li></ul>
  65. 65. He Exhorts to Fear <ul><li>13 Then make sure you don't speak evil words or use deceptive speech! 14 Turn away from evil and do what is right! Strive for peace and promote it! </li></ul>
  66. 66. He Exhorts to Fear <ul><li>15 The LORD pays attention to the godly and hears their cry for help. 16 But the LORD opposes evildoers and wipes out all memory of them from the earth. </li></ul>
  67. 67. He Exhorts to Fear <ul><li>17 The godly cry out and the LORD hears; he saves them from all their troubles. 18 The LORD is near the brokenhearted; he delivers those who are discouraged. </li></ul>
  68. 68. He Exhorts to Fear <ul><li>19 The godly face many dangers, but the LORD saves them from each one of them. 20 He protects all his bones; not one of them is broken. </li></ul>
  69. 69. He Exhorts to Fear <ul><li>21 Evil people self-destruct; those who hate the godly are punished. 22 The LORD rescues his servants; all who take shelter in him escape punishment. </li></ul>
  70. 70. Where Do We Stand? <ul><li>Are we like Saul, (who said that God was on his side) or like David (who sought the word of the Lord!). </li></ul>
  71. 71. Where Do We Stand? <ul><li>Are we able to truthfully and whole heartedly recite the Psalms we’ve read today. Are we truly listed among the “Friends of God?” </li></ul>
