The Beauty of the LORD

Psalm 90:14-17 AMP
14 O satisfy us with Your mercy and loving-kindness in the morning [now, before we are older], that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.

From NetBible Ps 90:14

15 Make us glad in proportion to the days in which You have afflicted us and to the years in which we have suffered evil. 16 Let Your work [the signs of Your power] be revealed to Your servants, and Your [glorious] majesty to their children. 17 And let the beauty and delightfulness and favor of the Lord our God be upon us; confirm and establish the work of our hands—yes, the work of our hands, confirm and establish it.

From NetBible Ps 90:17

  • beauty[05278] = kindness, pleasantness, delightfulness, favor
  • establish[03559] = confirm, set up, make successful

Look how rejoicing and gladness are related to the LORD’s beauty resting upon us and confirming the work of our hands.

Psalm 33:1 AMP … Rejoice[07442] in the Lord, O you [uncompromisingly] righteous [you upright in right standing with God]; for praise[08416] is becoming and appropriate[05000] for those who are upright [in heart].

Psalm 147:1 AMP … Praise[08416] the Lord! For it is good[02896] to sing praises[02167] to our God, for He is gracious and lovely[05273]; praise[08416] is becoming and appropriate[05000].

From NetBible Ps 33:1, 147:1

  • rejoice[07442] = sing/shout greatly for joy, in triumph
  • praise[08416] = adoration, thanksgiving, song/hymn
    *from [01984] = to shine, brighten in praise

From NetBible Ps 27:4
