Today (Saturday) is the Sabbath. We are commanded to keep by the LORD in the Ten Commandments. It is a day of rest for the mind, body and soul of people and was created for man that he should be refreshed. I will post more on the Sabbath in another post.
“‘Observe the day of Shabbat, to set it apart as holy, as Yahweh your God ordered you to do.’
I was reading one mornning for my Bible Reading Challenge and I found a a Psalm or Praise Song especially for the Sabbath. It was Psalm 92.
1A psalm. A song for Shabbat: It is good to give thanks to ADONAI and sing praises to your name, ‘Elyon, 2 to tell in the morning about your grace and at night about your faithfulness, 3 to the music of a ten-stringed [harp] and a lute, with the melody sounding on a lyre. 4 For, ADONAI, what you do makes me happy; I take joy in what your hands have made. 5 How great are your deeds, ADONAI! How very deep your thoughts! 6 Stupid people can’t know, fools don’t understand,
7 that when the wicked sprout like grass, and all who do evil prosper, it is so that they can be eternally destroyed, 8 while you, ADONAI, are exalted forever. 9 For your enemies, ADONAI, your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered. 10 But you have given me the strength of a wild bull; you anoint me with fresh olive oil. 11 My eyes have gazed with pleasure on my enemies’ ruin, my ears have delighted in the fall of my foes. 12 The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar in the L’vanon. 13 Planted in the house of ADONAI, they will flourish in the courtyards of our God. 14 Even in old age they will be vigorous, still full of sap, still bearing fruit, 15 proclaiming that ADONAI is upright, my Rock, in whom there is no wrong.
I do believe that Psalm 96:4 has the right idea about where our praise should go and why it should go there -
For Yahweh is great, and greatly to be praised; he is to be feared more than all gods.
As I said in an earlier post, there is no God like Jehovah, who is my Strength, Strong Fortress, my Song, my Salvation and my GOD -
Let them know that you alone, whose name is Yahweh, are the Most High over all the earth.
Matthew 5:14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
