Wesley's Notes for Psalms 22:3


22:3 But thou art - Just and true in all thy ways, this he adds to strengthen his faith, and to enforce his prayers, and prevail with God for the honour of his holy name, to hear and help him. Inhabitest - Whom thy people are perpetually praising.


Discussion for Psalms 22

  • A disciple
    Bill; Why do you attack Dan? And what are you talking about, "Jesus attributes this saying to Abraham.." ? You don't really think that Abraham didn't hear God's words or believe he could raise the dead, do you? And how does that have any connection to what Dan and I were discussing? Maybe you should read them again! You might get something different, and not be so hasty to condemn the guiltless.
  • A disciple
    Bill; why the accusation? and why do you attack me? Haven't I written good things from the mind of the Lord in His Word? I do come to Jesus and seek Him continually, and He is my Lord and Saviour and my best Friend! What was it exactly that I wrote, that makes you say such things? Answer me! What did I write that would make you think I don't come to Jesus or have life? Everyone else also, tell me!
  • A disciple
    This Psalm which the Spirit spoke through David is the cry of the Anointed Himself, and of all who are in Him, as long as we are in this present evil world. The devil and his seed will vent out their hatred and violence unto death without any feeling: there is never enough with them. But our God will bring us up again and deliver us from their schemes and save us because we trust in Him. Rev. 2:10
  • A disciple
    Dan; In nearly every place where the LORD speaks about the incurable evil hearts of unbelief and defiance against His Spirit in the Prophets; He concludes with foretelling of the day when He finally brings Israel to everlasting repentance and reconciliation with Him when Christ is revealed from heaven in power and great glory. FROM THAT DAY FORWARD ISRAEL WILL KNOW THEIR LORD AND SAVIOUR IS JESUS.
  • A disciple
    Hello Dan; the part you referenced in Jeremiah has indeed already happened, and continues because of the Law of the broken Covenant (Deut. 28; Lev. 26; etc.); and is appointed by God to come to the full in "the time of Jacob's Trouble" when the "transgressors are come to the full." When Jesus returns, He is coming back to Jerusalem: then will all the Nations bring back the Jews on their shoulders!
  • Dan123
    ADisciple: Clearly the prophesy in Jer. ch16 has not yet happened. Do you have any idea what verses 14/15 are talking about: Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be said, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt. But, The LORD liveth, that brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north, and from all the land..
