Word Study
From NetBible Ps 56:4
In God (I will praise His word), In God I have put my trust; I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?

  • * praise His word = boast in His promise
  • * God’s “word” is here understood as an assuring promise of protection. Another option (2) is to translate, “in God I will boast [with] a word.” In this case, the “word” is a song of praise. The present translation reflects yet another option (3): In this case “I praise his word” is a parenthetical statement, with “his word” being the object of the verb.

From NetBible Ps 46:10
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

  • Be still and know = cease/stop striving and recognize, be at peace in the knowledge
    • * To the nations who rage against God and His people, this is a rebuke to stop fighting/ striving against the Sovereign Lord
    • * To God’s children this is a call to trust and rest secure in the Sovereign Lord’s protection
  • exalted means recognized as Sovereign King => The Lord of Hosts, King of Glory(Ps 24:10) who fights and delivers on behalf of His children(Ps 46:11)
