Wesley's Notes for Psalms 33:18


33:18 The eye - Whosoever therefore would have safety, must expect it only from the watchful eye, and almighty hand of God. That fear - These are the chief objects of his care and favour. Hope - That place their hope and trust, and happiness, not in any creature, but only in God, and in his mercy and blessings.

    Brianna: You're right. 6 months after I was Saved, I wondered why all capital letters. Discovered it's Jehovah! That's how I read it every time. There's a better understanding with more strength,when I read His Name as Jehovah. It's amazing no one knows how His Name is spelled or pronounced,seeing His Name was spelled with no vowels.

    V. - " ....., to keep them alive in famine". no doubt refers to physical food, but also to a famine of the preaching of the truth of His Word. Where there is no preaching of the truth, the soul ends in death.

    Brianna - I am sorry for my part in your 'name' discussion; I didn't realize you are Jewish.

    Vs. 21 - Just to clarify. The name being referred to is Yahweh Jehovah. In Vs. 22 you will see that it uses capital LORD. If you research why that lord is all capital, you find that the Divine Name was taken out of this Bible and replaced with LORD. When translators do this, can people apply vs. 21? Do they even know that name?
