Discussion for Psalms 35:18

  • Just as the psalmist did not hold back from praising Jehovah God, neither should we. We should praise him as often as possible and especially in the congregation. One way we can do this is by singing praises to God and sharing his wonderful qualities with others.
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 18
    The Psalmist said I will give thee thanks in the great congregation. I will praise thee among much people. When we give thanks to God in the great congregation, and praise God among the people, we receive the victory over our trials. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Praise is the response from a thankful heart. The Hebrew boys praised God in the fire, and the Son of God delivered them. Daniel praised God in the lionís den, and the Lord sent an angel to shut the lionís mouth. When praises go up, blessing comes down.
