Lesson 39

Psalm 138


  1. Psalm 95:3, 96:4-5, and 115:3-8 might suggest what interpretation of the statement, "I will sing praises to thee before the gods"?

  2. On the other hand, Psalm 82:1, 6, Exodus 21:6, and Deuteronomy 1:16-17 might suggest what interpretation of the same phrase?

  3. Does the statement, "I will bow down toward thy hold temple", necessarily repudiate Davidic authorship of this psalm. (cf. Psalm 5:7, 65:4, I Chronicles 21:1-6, 28:6-19)

  4. Explain the phrase, "Thou hast magnified thy word according to all thy name". (KJV has: "thou has magnified thy word above all thy name")

  5. Are verses 4 and 5 to be understood as messianic?

  6. The Lord regards, or has respect for the lowly, but what is said of the haughty, or proud?

  7. Why is it the Lord's right hand that will save?

  8. What is it that the Lord will not forsake, but will accomplish, or perfect?
