Isaiah 4:5-6 AMPC … And the Lord will create over the whole site, over every dwelling place of Mount Zion and over her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day and the shining of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory shall be a canopy (a defense of divine love and protection). And there shall be a pavilion[tabernacle] for shade in the daytime from the heat, and for a place of refuge and a shelter from storm and from rain.

From NetBible Isa 4:5-6

  • dwelling place[04349] = established place, habitation

The Lord is Nigh

April 20, 2013

Psalm 34:17-18The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; He delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is near the brokenhearted; He delivers those who are discouraged.

The Lord is nigh
He hears and answers the righteous cry.

Prepare your heart
Call on Him in sincerity and truth
Expect an answer.

Be quieted and renewed in His unfailing love
He is faithful to deliver and mighty to save!

{From the word study below} The word Hosanna points to this verse:

Psalm 32:7 NASB … You are my hiding place; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with songs of deliverance. Selah.

Psalm 32:7 MSG … GOD’s my island hideaway, keeps danger far from the shore, throws garlands of hosannas around my neck.

The Lord is near
Don’t shed a tear
He is your hiding place
He is faithful to deliver and mighty to save!

Rejoice greatly O daughter of Zion! -Zec 9:9

Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. -Ps24:7

Sing hosanna in the highest to the King!
The King of glory He comes!

Word Study

From NetBible Ps 34:17

  • delivers[05337] = to snatch away, to be plucked out, rescue, save

From NetBible Ps 34:18

  • nigh[07138] = near(in place, kindred or
    time), approachable, allied, at hand
  • delivers[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna

From NetBible Jn 12:13

  • hosanna[5614] =
    From [03467] = to be liberated, saved, delivered, victorious
    and [04994] = we pray now please
  • The expression ῾Ωσαννά (Jwsanna, literally in Hebrew, “O Lord, save”) in the quotation from Ps 118:25-26 was probably by this time a familiar liturgical expression of praise, on the order of “Hail to the king,” although both the underlying Aramaic and Hebrew expressions meant “O Lord, save us.” As in Mark 11:9 the introductory ὡσαννά is followed by the words of Ps 118:25, εὐλογημένος ὁ ἐρχόμενος ἐν ὀνόματι κυρίου (euloghmeno” Jo ercomeno” en onomati kuriou), although in the Fourth Gospel the author adds for good measure καὶ ὁ βασιλεὺς τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ (kai Jo basileu” tou Israhl). In words familiar to every Jew, the author is indicating that at this point every messianic expectation is now at the point of realization. It is clear from the words of the psalm shouted by the crowd that Jesus is being proclaimed as messianic king. See E. Lohse, TDNT9:682-84.* Hosannais an Aramaic expression that literally means, “help, I pray,” or “save, I pray.” By Jesus’ time it had become a strictly liturgical formula of praise, however, and was used as an exclamation of praise to God.* A quotation from Ps 118:25-26.

From NetBible Ps 145:18

  • Psalm 145:18 AMP … The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him sincerely and in truth.
  • near[07138] = nigh(in place, kindred or
    time), approachable, allied, at hand
  • sincerity and truth[0571] = firmness, faithfulness, sureness, reliability, honesty
    *from [0539] = to be certain He will answer

From NetBible Zep 3:17

  • Zephaniah 3:17The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.
  • save[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna
  • He will quiet you[02790] = make silent, give rest
    * “he causes [you] to be silent by his love,” that is, “he soothes [you] by his love.” The present translation follows the LXX and assumes an original reading יְחַדֵּשׁ (yÿkhaddesh, “he renews”) with ellipsis of the object (“you”).
  • love[0160] = God’s love for His people, faithfulness

From NetBible Zec 9:9

  • Zechariah 9:9Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
  • Rejoice[01523] = joyful, glad, to spin round (under the influence of any violent emotion)
  • shout[07321] = loud shout for joy in triumph
  • righteous[06662] = just, lawful
  • salvation[03467] = to save, to be liberated, to give victory to
    *from a primitive root, Greek [5614] = hosanna
  • The NT understands this verse to be a prophecy of the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, and properly so (cf. Matt 21:5;John 12:15), but reference to the universal rule of the king in v. 10reveals that this is a “split prophecy,” that is, it has a two-stage fulfillment. Verse 9 was fulfilled in Jesus’ earthly ministry but v. 10awaits a millennial consummation (cf. Rev 19:11-16).
  • v10 … I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim And the horse from Jerusalem; And the bow of war will be cut off. And He will speak peace to the nations; And His dominion will be from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth.
