Wednesday

Today we have a

Psalm 14 song.

And after the song,

we have a Hebrew lesson.


The song begins with

Psalm 14 verse 7

and

verse 7 is the chorus.







Hebrew Lesson

Most translations use the word "salvation" in verse 7.

Yet this song uses the word "deliverance" which gives

our minds another aspect of salvation. 


Here is one of the few translations that uses the word "deliverance."

Oh, that Israel’s deliverance would come

from Zion!

When the LORD restores

the fortunes of his people,

let Jacob rejoice,

let Israel be glad.

Psalm 14:7 
Holman Christian Standard Bible


This verse speaks of Jesus the Messiah whose name

"Jesus" means "Salvation."

And

Zion has more than one meaning.

Zion can mean

Heaven or Jerusalem or sometimes the Jewish people.

So Salvation / Deliverance / Jesus

comes out of 

Zion

which means 

Heaven / Jerusalem / the Jewish people.

Jesus came out of Zion.

Jesus came out of Heaven

Jesus (Salvation) preached and died in Jerusalem

Jesus was physically born  out of the Jewish people through Mary.

Sing

More Hebrew

Just to let you know:

The song above says:

Let Jacob

sing

The word that is translated "sing" is not translated "sing" in any translation that I can find.


For that Hebrew word,

most translations use the English word

" rejoice. "


That Hebrew word

( Strong's #  1523 -  gil )

is found many times in the Bible.

Here are the different ways

it is translated in English

in the King James Bible...


cry (1 time), exult (1 time), glad (3 times),

rejoice (38 times), rejoiced (1 time), rejoices (1 time)




Thursday

Today we have a

Psalm 14 devotional.

Psalm 14 is sometimes called

The Fool's Psalm.

So this video begins by talking about

April Fool's Day.

From the above video:

As a bottle of milk

once becomes sour - 

sours its entirety,

so sin cannot be localized to just one part of us

it impacts our entire life - 

our desires, our choices, our attitudes,

our demeaner, our aspirations, our goals.

our dreams, our methods

our reasoning, our considerations

and

our judgments

are all affected by sin.

The last words of the video:

Jesus is every fool's only hope.


Psalm 14 KJV


KJV

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.

There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.

Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.

Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the Lord bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
