Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 27 - Morning

"Praise be to the Lord my Rock,
who trains my hands for war,
my fingers for battle.
He is my loving God and my fortress,
my stronghold and my deliverer,
my shield, in whom I take refuge,
who subdues peoples under me...

...I will sing a new song to you, my God;
on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you,
to the One who gives victory to kings,
who delivers his servant David from the deadly sword"

- Psalms 144:1-2, 9-10

Sing For the Victory    

In Psalm 144 David or a king of Judah composed this Psalm or used this song in the midst of a military conflict where he was facing an attack that involved broken international treaties (144:7-8, 11)
In 144:2 there imperial overtone of the God and his King conquering and ruling over the nations. This is similar to other royal Psalms where the Lord empowers the king to subdue people in conquest. (See similar lyrics in Psalm 18:46-50 and 2 Samuel 22:47-51.)

The king recognizes that it is the Lord who has trained and prepared his hands and fingers for battle. The hands would, of course, be used to hold the shield, sword and bow. But, the fingers? Specifically, the fingers would be used to draw, hold and release the bowstring to accurately launch arrows (missiles). In verse 144:9 these same fingers are used once again on strings, but this time on the strings of a ten string lyre (harp) to sing of the very concepts of this Psalm.

In this setting of broken treaties and a military invasion the king needs help. He basically beseeches the Lord for a theophany, a historical appearance of the Lord, to interrupt time and space in order to set things right and deliver the king (Psalm 144:5-7).

Being fully aware of the Lord’s righteous nature the king assures the Lord that integrity and covenant faithfulness have been the king’s modus operandi, but those who attack are liars and deceivers that have instigated this problem.

In Psalm 144:9-10 the king seems to have turned this prayer into a song and begins to recite again his request, expectations, faith and thanksgiving in lyrics that make up the rest of this Psalm (144:11-15).

"Live in such a way that those who know you but don't know God will come to know God because they know you!"
Something to Ponder??

Key findings and statistics on religion in America show that more than one-quarter of American adults (28%) have left the faith in which they were raised in favor of another religion - or no religion at all.

If change in affiliation from one type of Protestantism to another is included, 44% of adults have either switched religious affiliation

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Ykh hi (Hb) – to determine what is right (Eng) – Ykh hi comes from judicial proceedings as in Isaiah 29:21 and Amos 5:10 where it is “in the gate” that these judicial courts met. God is the legal judge of ykh hi in Genesis 31:42, 2 Kings 19:4, and Isaiah 2:4. God is the counselor/instructor who ykh hi, or reprimands, the individual who is in error in Psalm 6, 2 Samuel 7:14 and Job 13:10.


In Genesis 14:14 the biblical account says that Abraham pursued the four invading kings from the east “as far as Dan.” If this is speaking of the city of Laish (Judges 18:7) that would be burnt and resettled by the tribe of Dan in Judges 18:28-30, then the gate of the city from the days of Abraham has been located and preserved.

A view of the Valley of Elah from Azekah. David and Goliath fought in this valley according to 1 Samuel 17:1-3:
"Now the Philistines gathered their forces for war and assembled at
Sokoh in Judah. They pitched camp at Ephes Dammim, between
Sokoh and Azekah. Saul and the Israelites assembled and camped
in the Valley of Elah and drew up their battle line to meet the Philistines.
 The Philistines occupied one hill and the Israelites another,
with the valley between them."
