Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 26 - Morning

"You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain...

...For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be."

- Psalms 139:1-6

Forming and Testing...all of us!    

Psalm 139 begins by focusing on God’s knowledge of our inner man. (Psalm 139:1-2). This inner man is compared to the den of an animal when the Hebrew word rov’a is used in verse 139:3. The Lord will “winnow” this “den” (rov’a) or inner man. “Winnow” comes from an agricultural root z-r-h which means here “to analyze and critically assess.” Psalm 139:5 expresses the idea of the Lord putting his hand, or “palm”, on the psalmist like a potter places his palm on the spinning clay on the pottery wheel. The Lord has his hand “behind and in front” of him on the spinning wheel of life in order to shape this man.

Throughout this Psalm words are used to refer to God’s oversight and evaluation of the inner man that he is forming with the palm of his hand on the potter’s wheel: “know,” “examine,” “see,” and “probe.” The psalmist knows that the Lord is using life situations to form his character and then the Lord follows up by testing that character formed in the inner man.

Interestingly, and surprisingly, the psalmist suddenly changes directions in verse 139:19! The focus of this Psalm goes from God knowing and judging the individual writer of this Psalm to God’s responsibility of judging others. In this case, the others who have opposed God’s attempt to form their inner man and have opposed the psalmist who has submitted to God.

This Psalm is very similar to the context and direction of the prayers and lamentations of Jeremiah who uses the same imagery crediting God with forming and testing Jeremiah’s inner man while also challenging God to be accountable and do the same thing to others. Jeremiah demands that the Lord destroy those who refuse to submit to formation by the palm of the Lord or fail the Lord’s testing.

“Yet you know me, O Lord; you see me and test my thoughts about you. Drag them off like sheep to be butchered! Set them apart for the day of slaughter!”
– Jeremiah 12:3

“You understand, O Lord; remember me and care for me. Avenge me on my persecutors.
You are long-suffering – do not take me away; think of how I suffer reproach for your sake.”

– Jeremiah 15:15
  Christian Quote from Church History
"We Italians then owe to the Church of Rome and to her priests our having become irreligious and bad, but we owe her a still greater debt, and one that will be the cause of our ruin, namely that the Church has kept and still keeps our country divided."
- Niccolo Machiavelli

Tob (Hb) - Good (Eng) - The Hebrew root word tob means “good” but the Hebrew context often requires tob to be translated into English in a variety of the following ways in order to express more adequately the Hebrew intentions: “agreeable,” “pleasant,” “satisfying,” “favorable,” “useful,” “right,” “pretty,” “fragrant.” In general tob means good concerning:

  • Suitable for a purpose

Expert Witness Testimony Confirming the Authenticity of the James Ossuary

Epigrapher ancient Hebrew inscriptions: “Not doubt that the entire inscription was ancient and inscribed in a single event. No reason to believe the contrary.”

Paleographer, Hebrew University: “Concluded that the entire inscriptions of ancient origin…If this is a forgery, I quit.”

Expert in Hebrew Ossuary Inscriptions, IAA Committee: “Found no indication of forgery in the inscription.”

Expert on Hebrew Inscriptions: “Found no indication that the inscription is a forgery or is modern. The text and paleography make it difficult to rule out the authenticity of the inscription.”

Professor, prosecution witness: “No indication the inscription is a forgery.”

Experts in archaeometry at the Geological Survey of Israel in Jerusalem: “They identified natural bio-patina in all the letter grooves, thus demonstrating the inscription occurred prior to the scratches and patina forming. They have no doubt about the ancient origin of the entire inscription.”

Senior antiquities conservator for IAA, chemist and specialist in the conservation of ancient stone items: “Based on careful analysis of the patina within the letter grooves under various light conditions concluded with certainty the phrase ‘brother of Jesus’ had been engraved in ancient times.”

Several others with similar credentials testified in support of the authenticity of the James Ossuary.
