Discussion for Psalms 34:17

  • Arnold Kalonga for verse 17
    Every one will encounter distressing situations but a righteous person should not be troubled because the living God will always be there to intervene and deliver him her from situations. The most important lesson is that we need to be connected to God. Our relation ship should be sound with him and we can be assured even as he says he will never leave nor forsake us. Receive Jesus Christ as Lord and savior and remain focused to his relationship.
  • Angela gardner for verse 17
    Psalms is the truth
  • Olanrewaju Morenikeji for verse 17
    The Lord answers the righteous when he cries. It is required of the righteous to cry to God when he is in trouble having this assurance that Jehovah hears and He is there to save in trouble. A righteous man will suffer and die in his trouble if he does not cry to God. Hence we have this assurance that when we cry as a righteous person, God hears us and He is ever willing to rescue and deliver us from all troubles. Food for thought: What happens to the unrighteous?
  • EUCABETH MUSYOKI for verse 17
    I am always happy that God is always there for us and listen to our cry.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 17
    The righteous cry, and Yahweh hears, then delivers them out of all their troubles. This is the promise given to the children of God. We are not exempt from troubles because we are His children, but when they come, we cry out to Him, then with His right hand He holds us up. If you do not know Yahweh today, then you can cry out to Jesus, who is the mediator between God, and man. Who so ever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
