Psalm 132-136

Supplemental notes for the Daily Bible Study Bible Reading Plan

by Wayne Blank

Psalm Chapter 132

The people of Israel, physical and spiritual (see Physical and Spiritual Israel), have always had Christ as their King ("I want you to know, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same supernatural food and all drank the same supernatural drink. For they drank from the supernatural Rock which followed them, and the Rock was Christ" 1 Corinthians 10:1-4 RSV). The Lord permitted their request to have a "king" from among themselves (see Israelite Monarchy - The Origin), merely as a servant of the ultimate King, Who is one day returning to rule upon His Throne that He has always had. King David never became blind to that reality.

Ark Of The Covenant

"A Song of Ascents.

Remember, O Lord, in David's favor, all the hardships He endured; how He swore to The Lord and vowed to the Mighty One of Jacob, "I will not enter my house or get into my bed; I will not give sleep to my eyes or slumber to my eyelids, until I find a place for The Lord, a dwelling place for the Mighty One of Jacob." [see Who, What or Where Is Zion?]

Lo, we heard of it in Ephrathah, we found it in the fields of Jaar. "Let us go to His dwelling place; let us worship at His footstool!" Arise, O Lord, and go to Thy resting place, Thou and The Ark of Thy might [see Christ's Mercy Seat]. Let Thy priests be clothed with righteousness, and let Thy saints shout for joy.

For Thy servant David's sake do not turn away the face of Thy anointed one. The Lord swore to David a sure oath from which He will not turn back: "One of the sons of your body I will set on your throne. If your sons keep my covenant and my testimonies [see Covenant and Testament] which I shall teach them, their sons also for ever shall sit upon your throne."

For The Lord has chosen Zion [see The Messiah]; He has desired it for His habitation: "This is my resting place for ever; here I will dwell, for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provisions; I will satisfy her poor with bread. Her priests I will clothe with salvation, and her saints will shout for joy.

There I will make a horn to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed [see The Light Of Life]. His enemies I will clothe with shame, but upon himself his crown will shed its luster." (Psalm 132:1-18 RSV)

Psalm Chapter 133

The Holy Spirit is "the precious oil" that gives the Light of understanding to God's Truth (see The Light Of Life); the high priest Aaron was merely a prototype of Christ (see What Is Jesus Christ Doing Right Now?).

Light

"A Song of Ascents.

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down upon the beard, upon the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of His robes!

It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there The Lord has commanded the blessing, life for evermore." (Psalm 133:1-3 RSV)

Psalm Chapter 134

"May The Lord bless you from Zion" refers to the Messiah's Zionism, not man's.

"A Song of Ascents.

Come, bless The Lord, all you servants of The Lord, who stand by night in the house of The Lord! Lift up your hands to the holy place, and bless The Lord!

May The Lord bless you from Zion, He who made heaven and earth!" (Psalm 134:1-3 RSV) [see Christ The Creator]

Psalm Chapter 135

"The Name of The Lord" refers to the Hebrew "YHVH" (shown in illustration; see also YHVH, Adonai, Jehovah, LORD).

YHVH

"Praise The Lord.

Praise The Name of The Lord, give praise, O servants of The Lord, you that stand in the house of The Lord, in the Courts of the house of our God!

Praise The Lord, for The Lord is good; sing to His Name, for He is gracious! For The Lord has chosen Jacob for Himself, Israel as His own possession [see Daughter of Zion].

For I know that The Lord is great, and that our Lord is above all gods. Whatever The Lord pleases He does, in heaven and on earth [see Heavens Below, Heavens Above], in the seas and all deeps. He it is who makes the clouds rise at the end of the earth, who makes lightnings for the rain and brings forth the wind from His storehouses.

He it was who smote the first-born of Egypt [Note: "I want you to know, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same supernatural food and all drank the same supernatural drink. For they drank from the supernatural Rock which followed them, and the Rock was Christ" 1 Corinthians 10:1-4 RSV], both of man and of beast; who in thy midst, O Egypt, sent signs and wonders against Pharaoh and all his servants; who smote many nations and slew mighty kings, Sihon, king of the Amorites, and Og, king of Bashan, and all the kingdoms of Canaan, and gave their land as a heritage, a heritage to His people Israel.

Thy Name, O Lord, endures for ever, Thy renown, O Lord, throughout all ages. For The Lord will vindicate His people, and have compassion on His servants.

The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of men's hands. They have mouths, but they speak not, they have eyes, but they see not, they have ears, but they hear not, nor is there any breath in their mouths. Like them be those who make them! - yea, every one who trusts in them!

O house of Israel, bless The Lord! O house of Aaron, bless The Lord! O house of Levi, bless The Lord! You that fear The Lord, bless The Lord! Blessed be The Lord from Zion, He who dwells in Jerusalem! Praise The Lord!" (Psalm 135:1-21 RSV)

Psalm Chapter 136

"His steadfast love endures for ever" is a truth that has existed right from the Creation. See The God Of The Old Testament to understand how Christ has been bringing about the deliverance of the Creation, to The Father [see The Throne Of God, From Heaven To Earth], right from the first moment of time.

Deliverance

"O give thanks to The Lord, for He is good, for His steadfast love endures for ever.

O give thanks to the God of gods, for His steadfast love endures for ever.
O give thanks to the Lord of lords, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who alone does great wonders, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who by understanding made the heavens, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who spread out the earth upon the waters, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who made the great lights, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
the sun to rule over the day, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
the moon and stars to rule over the night, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who smote the first-born of Egypt, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
and brought Israel out from among them, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
with a strong hand and an outstretched arm, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who divided the Red Sea in sunder, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
and made Israel pass through the midst of it, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
but overthrew Pharaoh and His host in the Red Sea, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who led His people through the wilderness, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
to Him who smote great kings, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
and slew famous kings, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
Sihon, king of the Amorites, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
and Og, king of Bashan, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
and gave their land as a heritage, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
a heritage to Israel His servant, for His steadfast love endures for ever.

It is He who remembered us in our low estate, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
and rescued us from our foes, for His steadfast love endures for ever;
He who gives food to all flesh, for His steadfast love endures for ever.

O give thanks to the God of heaven, for His steadfast love endures for ever." (Psalm 136:1-26 RSV)
