Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 18 - Morning

"Some sat in darkness, in utter darkness,
prisoners suffering in iron chains,
because they rebelled against God’s commands
and despised the plans of the Most High.

So he subjected them to bitter labor;
they stumbled, and there was no one to help.

Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
and he saved them from their distress.
He brought them out of darkness, the utter darkness,
and broke away their chains.

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
and his wonderful deeds for mankind,
for he breaks down gates of bronze
and cuts through bars of iron."

- Psalms 107:10-16

Redeeming the Afflicted    

Psalm 107 is a collection of the accounts of the afflicted and the oppressed being delivered, or “redeemed” by the Lord. The intention of this psalm is to call all the captives of the past and those currently in positions of oppression to praise the Lord for his acts of redemption. The full list of redemptive acts in Psalm 107 include:

  • Redeeming the lost travelers out of the wilderness. (Ps. 107:4-9)
  • Redeeming the prisoners from darkness, death, and the affliction of iron chains.(Ps. 107:10-16)
  • Redeeming the sick and physically afflicted from death and distress (Ps. 107:17-22)
  • Redeeming the sailors and their ships from the storm at sea and shipwreck (Ps. 107:23-32)

Often the sin of the oppressed that led them into their state of affliction is identified as:

  • The prisoners who “had rebelled against the words of God, and spurned the counsel of the Most High.”
  • The sick who “were fools through their sinful ways, and because of their iniquities suffered affliction.”

In every case each group that was redeemed cried for help before the Lord worked redemption in their situation:

  • The lost travelers “cried to the Lord in their trouble.” (Ps. 107:6)
  • The prisoners “cried to the Lord in their trouble.” (Ps. 107:13)
  • The sick “cried to the Lord in their trouble.” (Ps. 107:19)
  • The sailors “cried to the Lord in their trouble.” (Ps. 107:28)

The list of the redeemed includes those being delivered from the wilderness and the sea, to those being delivered from spiritual sin and physical sickness. Others were redeemed from illegal activity (prisoners) and imprisonment and others from struggles in business/trade adventures (sailors at sea) and those moving from one social standing (nomads) into another (city dwellers). The Lord’s redemptive acts includes the full range of human experience. “He has redeemed from trouble and gathered in from the lands, from the east and from the west, from the north and from the south.” (Ps. 107:2-3)

So, “give thanks to the Lord, for he is good...Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!” (Ps. 107:1-2) Confess your sins and cry out to the Lord today.

first, to Pagans, and,
then, to believers."

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Thr (Hb) – to be pure (Eng) – In the Hebrew text the word thr refers to physical, ethical and religious purity. In Jeremiah 13:27 Jeremiah speaks of Jerusalem’s need for thr. In Jeremiah 33:8 he promises Israel that God will provide thr (or, “purification”) for Jerusalem. Malachi speaks of the Lord purifying the priests on the Day of Yahweh in Malachi 3:3.


Around 95 AD Clement of Rome knew of these twelve New Testament documents and referred to them in his writings: Matthew, Mark, Luke, Romans, 1 Corinthians, Ephesians, 1 Timothy, Titus, Hebrews, James, 1 Peter, 2 Peter.
