    Glory to God in the highest for he is faithful to his words. Jesus is the perfect obedience to the Father therefore we follow obey and live like Jesus coz in him there is no darkness. Thanks to the blood Lord. Help us to be born again in spirit every moment of our life. Unless a man will not be born of water and in spirit we cannot enter into the Kingdom of God. Thank you Jesus for giving us faith

    O LORD IEHOUAH, most High GOD of Israel, who created all things by Jesus Christ: let it be known this day that thou art GOD in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word. Blessed be the LORD IEHOUAH for evermore. Amen, and Amen.

    In verse 27 since David was not a firstborn son it seems that Jehovah God was referring prophetically to the one foreshadowed by David, Jesus Christ.

    Those who know the joyful shouting will be blessed to have God's favor shine upon them.

    The joyful sound is not in knowing Jesus is coming He is already here. This is why we cannot enjoy the fullness of God. Our Father's prayer says on earth as it is in heaven. To have Him is heaven and without Him is sorrow. John 10:10 says He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. When Jesus was on earth those who believed were neither sick nor hungry His presence is Joy NOW
