Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

June 28 - Morning

"His pleasure is not in the strength of the horse,
nor his delight in the legs of the warrior;
the Lord delights in those who fear him,
who put their hope in his unfailing love."

- Psalms 147:10-11

How to Impress the Lord    

Because of verse 147:2 it is assumed this psalm was written after Israel’s 537 BC return to Jerusalem from Babylonian captivity:

“The Lord builds up Jerusalem; he gathers the exiles of Israel.” - Psalm 147:2

Psalm 147 praises God for his comfort, his wisdom, his power and his provisions In 147:3-9.
In 147:10-11 men are admonished, particularly the men who have return to restore Israel.
After the first 9 verses acknowledge and thank the Lord verses 10 and 11 identify what does not impress the Lord and what does impress the Lord.

The Lord is NOT impressed with these two things about men (Psalm 147:10):
1) Men’s physical strength (example: leg muscle and mobility)
2) Men’s ability to harness and control the powers of nature (example: the horse).

But, we are told that the Lord IS impressed with these two things about men (Psalm 147:11):
1) Men who fear him (example: instead of fearing other men and their ability, or being impressed with their own self.)
2) Men who long for the Lord’s kindness (example: the provisions he is thanked for in 147:3-9)

  Christian Quote from Church History
"Perhaps God brings us
to the end of our resources so we can discover the
vastness of His."

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Hsh (Hb) – To Take Shelter (Eng) - The basic meaning of the root word hsh is “to hide oneself.”
The verb form of hsh is combined with yhwh (Yahweh) in the Psalms as
“I hide myself in you (Yahweh)” and “I trust you (Yahweh)”.


Archaeologists have discovered that the City of David, the original city of Jerusalem built on the ancient core, had been built on a series of ascending terraces by building a retaining wall and “filling” to create space to build the expanding city. The Hebrew word for “filling” or “fill” is millo. Residences for the people and government buildings were then built on the millo. This confirms
2 Samuel 5:9 where the Hebrew word millo is translated "terraces."

The Madaba Map found in a Byzantine church mosaic in Jordan provides details of 500 AD Jerusalem.

The Madaba Map found in a Byzantine church mosaic in Jordan provides details of 500 AD Jerusalem.

The Madaba map from the 500's AD shows the main Roman road called the Cardo with the most important Christian churches in relation to the Cardo. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is shown with its basilica built in front of Calvary so that it extends all the way to the Cardo. Also, shown on the map are the Nea Church, the Siloam Church and the Zion Church. On Easter each year during the Byzantine era, a very large procession began at the Nea Church and progressed down the Cardo Street to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
