Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 25 - Evening

"I give you thanks, O Lord, with my whole heart;
before the gods I sing your praise;
I bow down toward your holy temple
and give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness,
for you have exalted above all things
your name and your word.

On the day I called, you answered me;
my strength of soul you increased.

All the kings of the earth shall give you thanks, O Lord,
for they have heard the words of your mouth,
and they shall sing of the ways of the Lord,
for great is the glory of the Lord."

- Psalms 138:1-5 (ESV)

The Whole World Will Know    

A singer begins Psalm 138 confessing his faith in God and his thanksgiving for God’s help. The psalmist, possibly David (see postscript), or a Levitical psalmist (see reference to the “temple”), acknowledges the Lord before all the other “gods” and bows towards the Lord’s presence in the Jerusalem temple to express his thanksgiving. The psalmist is not seeking God for an answer to prayer, but is seeking God to thank him for the answer he has already received.

In verse 138:3 the psalmist expresses his gratitude for God hearing and responding to him the day
the request was made. The Great God of Israel is honored for:

  • His kindness
  • His steadfastness
  • His truth
  • His revealed Word

In 138:4-5 the revelation of the Lord that the psalmist has understood (revealed theology) and see (personal experience) is so true and real that the evidence of God’s existence and greatness will be recognized by al the kings of the earth. Eventually, all the powers of this world will acclaim the Lord because they will have also heard the word of the Lord. They will have trusted in God’s word and experienced his reality just like the psalmist has.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Epanorthosis (Gr) - Correction (Eng) – the Greek word epanorthosis is found in inscriptions concerning repairing a statue, rebuilding a city and restoring a sanctuary. In the papyri documents epanorthosis refers to making corrections to a writing error in the document.
Epanorthosis means both to make a “correction” and to have the characteristics
of “correctness.” Paul uses epanorthosis in 2 Timothy 3:16 when he says that
“All Scripture…is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.”


In Acts 14:6-13 the people of Lystra claim that Barnabas and Paul are Zeus and Hermes after Paul heals one of their men. In 1909 several inscriptions and a temple were uncovered that clearly identify Zeus and Hermes as the two main gods of Lystra. The pagan theology of the people of Lystra expected Zeus and Hermes to return at some point in the future. This clearly explains the people of Lystra’s response to the ministry and miracle of Paul and Barnabas.
