From the Rising of the Sun!

September 17, 2014

Psalm 113:1-4 AMP
1 Praise the Lord! (Hallelujah!) Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord!
2 Blessed be the name of the Lord from this time forth and forever
3 From the rising of the sun to the going down of it and from east to west, the name of the Lord is to be praised!
4 The Lord is high above all nations, and His glory above the heavens!

From NetBible Ps 113:3

  • * “from the rising of the sun to its setting.” The extent is not temporal (“from sunrise to sunset”) but spatial (“from the place where the sun rises [the east] to the place where it sets [the west].” In the phenomenological language of OT cosmology, the sun was described as rising in the east and setting in the west.

Who should praise the Lord?
==> His servants

==> From this time forth and forever

==> From the east to the west; All over the whole earth!

** An interesting thought
==> Whenever the sun sets – it is rising in another part of the earth.
===> So the Lord should be praised ALL the time EVERYWHERE!


Psalm 118:24 AMP
24 This is the day which the Lord has brought about; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
