To Know Him Summary

September 1, 2012

Summary from To Know Him is to Trust Him Bible Study.

Psalm 9:10 Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek You.

From NetBible Ps 9:10

  • Those who know[03045]= perceive, understand, recognize – ‘see’, declare

    … name[08034]= reputation, fame, glory, character

    … forsake[05800]= depart from, leave behind, abandon, neglect

    … seek[01875] = to seek with care in prayer & worship, to diligently inquire/follow

  • *in v8 “To know” the Lord’s “name” means to be his follower, recognizing his authority and maintaining loyalty to him.
  • *in Ps 91:14 “knowing” the Lord’s “name” is associated with loving him.

Those who know the name of the Lord trust and love Him; they declare/proclaim His name. -Ps 9:10,91:14

Declaring/knowing/’seeing’ His glory, mercy, grace, longsuffering {slow to anger}, goodness, truth, forgiveness, greatness, justice and righteousness are part of declaring/knowing/’seeing’ His name. -Exo 33:18-19,34:5-7 ;Deut 32:3;Jere 9:23-24

Those who declare/know His name make their boast in the Lord {understand His character}, praise His greatness{ascribe greatness} and have high praise {a new song} continually in their mouth! -Jere 9:23-24;Deut 32:3;Ps34:1-3

High praise is associated with the song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb; singing a new song.
From Harps of God:
The harp goes with the singing of the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb; it is associated with singing a new song. The new song in (Rev 15:2-4) seems to spring forth as a celebration of victory, a celebration of deliverance by the Lord’s mighty hand. It is also a celebration of the confession of truth, of the goodness and greatness of the Lord. A similar thing is seen in Psalms 33:1-5, 43:3-5, 71:22-24.

Psalm 40:3He has put a new song in my mouth — {high} praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.

Psalm 34:3 NKJV … O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.

—> Notes:

Psalm 9:10Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek You.

From NetBible Ps 9:10

  • Those who know[03045]= perceive, understand, recognize – ‘see’, declare

    … name[08034]= reputation, fame, glory, character

    … forsake[05800]= depart from, leave behind, abandon, neglect

    … seek[01875] = to seek with care in prayer & worship, to diligently inquire/follow

  • *in v8 “To know” the Lord’s “name” means to be his follower, recognizing his authority and maintaining loyalty to him.
  • *in Ps 91:14 “knowing” the Lord’s “name” is associated with loving him.

Those who know the name of the Lord trust and love the Him; they declare/proclaim His name.

Proclaiming the name of the Lord is related to the cry ‘show me Your glory’.

Exodus 33:18-19Then Moses said, “I pray You, show me Your glory!”
19Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the LORD before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion{show mercy} on whom I will have compassion{show mercy}.”

To ‘see’/know His glory is to ‘see’/know His great mercy, His goodness and His truth!

Exodus 34:5-7Now the LORD descended in the cloud and stood with him{Moses} there, and proclaimed the name of the LORD. 6nd the LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, 7keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty , visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.

Declaring/knowing His mercy, grace, longsuffering{slow to anger}, goodness, truth and forgiveness are part of declaring/knowing His name.

Deuteronomy 32:3I will proclaim the name of the LORD. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!

Praising God’s greatness{ascribing greatness to our God} is part of declaring/knowing His name!

Jeremiah 9:23-24Thus says the LORD, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast{shine with His favor} of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the LORD.

Declaring/knowing His lovingkindness/mercy, justice and righteousness are part of declaring/knowing His name.

Psalm 34:1-2I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise{high praise} shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast{shine with His favor} in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

Those who declare/know His name make their boast in the Lord{understand His character}, praise His greatness{ascribe greatness} and have high praise continually in their mouth!

High praise is associated with the song of Moses and the Song of the Lamb; singing a new song.

From Harps of God:
The harp goes with the singing of the song of Moses and the song of the Lamb; it is associated with singing a new song. The new song in (Rev 15:2-4) seems to spring forth as a celebration of victory, a celebration of deliverance by the Lord’s mighty hand. It is also a celebration of the confession of truth, of the goodness and greatness of the Lord. A similar thing is seen in Psalms 33:1-5, 43:3-5, 71:22-24.

Psalm 40:3He has put a new song in my mouth — {high} praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.

Psalm 34:3 NKJV … O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.
… NLT … Come, let us tell of the LORD’s greatness; let us exalt His name together.
… BBE … O give praise to the Lord with me; let us be witnesses together of His great name.

Word Study

From NetBible Ps 90:1, Ps 71:3

  • dwelling place[04583] = habitation, refuge,
    a place to be covered, concealed & safe

From From NetBible Prov 18:10

  • *The metaphor of “running” to the Lord refers to a whole-hearted and unwavering trust in God’s protection*safe- Heb “is high” or “is inaccessible.” This military-type expression stresses the effect of the trust – security, being out of danger (see HALOT 1305 s.v. שׂגב). Other scriptures will supply the ways that God actually protects people who trust him.

    safe[07682] = to be set on high, inaccessibly high, out of reach

From NetBible Jer 31:3; Song 1:4

  • Draw is used figuratively of a master gently leading an animal with leather cords (Hos 11:4) and of a military victor leading his captives (Jer 31:3). The point of comparison might be that the woman wants to be the willing captive of the love of her beloved, that is, a willing prisoner of his love.

    draw[04900] = to attract, lead along(and lift out)

From NetBible Psa 63:8

  • follows hard[01692] = pursue to catch or overtake with determination
    to cling, cleave or be joined

From NetBible Heb 11:6

  • diligently seek[1567] = to strive after, to crave

From NetBible Psa 9:10

  • “To know” the Lord’s “name” means to be his follower, recognizing his authority and maintaining loyalty to him. See Ps 91:14, where “knowing” the Lord’s “name” is associated with loving him.
