  • Tim George for verse 4
    JAH stands for Jehovah and we are to sing unto God, as well as praise His name. Cast a highway for Him who brings rivers in the desert. When the Lord Jesus died on the Cross He took captivity captive and gave gifts to men. Therefore shall we exult before Him. Praise God He ever lives to intercede for the saints.

    I love reading the psalms. i just started reading the bible and it's giving me a connection with God. Every night I have decided that if i wanted to get close to God than I must learn his word to understand him. I'm so glad that I know God for myself. God bless you.
