    Not sure on psalm #14 is the secret is that GOD hates evil ??

    Psalm 25.

    Let us start this commentary on verse 14. We are reminded here of the verse in Deuteronomy 29:29 about the secret things of the Lord that we are NOT to know. There are other verses that state what is seemingly the opposite (namely; Proverbs 25:2) which states that it is the honor of kings for such matters to be revealed. Since we are "kings and priests" in the Lord; therefore we are given some comprehension of such mysteries. ( Rev. 5:10).

    Two major themes here relate to the fear of the Lord (in the verses 12-14) and not harboring sins (verses 1-7). Meek individuals (verse 8) remind us of the verse in the Gospels stating that the "meek shall inherit the earth" ( Matthew 5:5). Verse 10 also brings up the concept of those keeping His covenant (not stated which covenant) as well as those who keep "his testimonies." Obviously; the word of our testimony ( Rev. 12:11) is vital which involves confessing with our mouth as well as our heart. Trust is also a theme here of importance (verse 2 as well as verse 20). The last verse talks of Israel as a whole; which in context could refer to David's descendants or the eventual plan at the end of the age where it is restored to the position originally intended.

    Finally; patience in waiting on God is noted in verses 5 and 21. There are numerous references in scripture on that subject as a fruit; as one type of crown being given as a reward for those who wait patiently for the coming of the Lord ( James 5:7; etal). When we see such great wickedness around today such as was in the time of Lot and Noah we need to keep in focus the big picture.

    The only one Who is Good and upright is The Lord Almighty. Jesus answerded a young rich man who called him good master, why do you call me good? there is only one Who is good, Whom is God!

    I'm saved by His Mercy, through jesus blood's mrits, therefore, His Mercy is better than my life, which depends on God's Creation Salvation and Mercy, through His Holy Spirit, Whom He sent in order to give me all which is necessary for me to be saved, faith, repentance, jesus's mind set, peace, consolation, God's Fear and delieverance from the evil one and darkness powers! men!

    Hi Victoria All or most of us on this site at one time did this to get started in out walk of faith and believing

    Romans 10: 9+10 It says if thou shalt confess with thy mouth[your part] the Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine

    Heart [inner most part of your being] that God hath raised him from the dead thou shalt be saved[ sozo=to make or

    keep sound or safe] Gods Job. Then change your life to what the word of God says to do, and trust me God will do the

    rest His Job. Only a suggestion find a fellowship of believers or church and I like to start in the church Epistles

    addressed to the body of Christ in our day and time then the Gospels then old testament. That being said its all Gods

    promises to us who believe. God Bless

    Hi Victoria,

    There are many sources of information on the internet to gain understanding about Him. The primary source is the Bible. There are also many God has appointed along the way to now that have given gifts to explain spiritual truths.

    I just have one warning, there is also a lot of error proposed on the internet, so I suggest you ask God to send you to the right information and people. I hope you will soon find a pastor and a church family that can guide you as well (if you are not in a church congregation yet.)

  • Hailey Goldman on Psalms 25
    So I know this kid who believes that they are saved by salvation. And I explain to him (in a nice way) why that is incorrect. And they still are so set in their ways. Should i keep trying to explain why you are saved through faith and not through works or should I just give up?

    Romans 11:25 says, "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in."

    Frame that verse! Paul says here's the mystery that people don't understand even though it's right there in scripture that God made Israel blind in part, meaning it is temporary, not permanent until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.

    Now there are two phrases in the New Testament. One is the "Times of the Gentiles," and the other is the "Fulness of the Gentiles."

    The definition of the fullness of the Gentiles is the completion of the body of Christ. And the time frame runs from Pentecost in Acts Chapter 2 until the rapture of the Church. That is when all the Gentiles who are going to be saved will be saved. The fullness of the Gentiles is when every Gentile that's going to be saved is going to be saved.

    So Israel has been made blind until the fullness of the Gentiles be complete.

    The "Times of the Gentiles" is given to us in Luke Chapter 21 Verse 24, and the times of the Gentiles run from the Babylonian captivity to the end of the tribulation.

    What it means is that God's judgment, the time of Nebuchadnezzar, that the Gentiles shall trample down Jerusalem and shall be in charge of the Jews as far as persecution.

    That runs all the way from Babylon, 586 B.C, until the end of the tribulation period because when Christ comes, that's when Israel will turn to the Lord.

  • Someone out there on Psalms 25
    Who took the apocrypha out of the KJV after 250 yrs ?

    Did they know more than the translators?

    I think not . The word of God needs protection from those that reduce it . Many billions of people never even heard of the apocrypha and it's a shame .

    God gave warning to those take away or add to his word .that day is coming
  • Mary Henson on Psalms 25

  • Bob e scholebo on Psalms 25

  • St Ephraim De Penafrancia on Psalms 25
    Also, Psalm 25 is pleading to God to save us from the reproach of people. In this present world that we live in, quite a number of people patiently wait for our downfall especially as Christians so that they could mock us and speak ill of the God that we serve. King David like many of us to have these people waiting for him to be put to shame, Psalm 25 is written to plead to God to rescue him from the plans of his adversaries. So also us who call on the name of God day and night and we that have refused to compromise our faith, the Psalm 25 should be our anthem day and night to always remind God to remember his promises concerning those who believe in him.

    Dahg Melek, "God's 'Grace' is a specific period of time to make right that which has been wrong. It is not an indefinite, never ceasing thing in which we can continue to do what we have always done and there be no judgement." Your specific time frame is relative to our human station and responsibility. That is a narrow and limited definition of grace, that does not encompass the grace of God. To limit God's grace, is to limit God, which never or ever is possible. Only creation is limited to time specific. To contrast grace to judgement, you must first minimize both in your thinking, hence, the narrow and limited view you present. Both grace and judgement are everpresent qualities of God.
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    Aye Chris, well said.
  • Dahg Melek - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    Concerning Israel, It is made evident that they were created by El Shaddai for the purpose of revealing Him to us who were/are not a part of that particular creation. I beg to differ with you when you say He chose them to pour out His love on them. His choosing of them was of a much higher calling than that. He "put His name in them," meaning He made them His family among the ungodly/mankind. They have basked in His favor and chafed in His anger. They have suffered at His hand that we might know His statutes and judgements, and they have rejoiced in His mercies that we might know the loving kindness of a Heavenly Father who loves His children. We are saved by the spirit of adoption, says Paul, and being of the wild olive tree are grafted into the tame olive tree, if so that we accept the redemption that came to them through the sacrifice of Christ and the resurrection that is theirs by their return to the Land of Inheritance and the acknowledging of their Creator.
  • Dahg Melek - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    When I was a teenager I received a citation for driving without a license. Upon appearing before the judge I had not yet obtained a license. The judge gave me ten days 'grace' to obtain my license. God's 'Grace' is a specific period of time to make right that which has been wrong. It is not an indefinite, never ceasing thing in which we can continue to do what we have always done and there be no judgement. His Mercy is the giving of a lighter sentence/punishment than deserved and His Judgements, according as we deserve, are without Grace or Mercy and are everlasting. Therefore, Noach found Grace and Mercy in the eyes of the Lord while the rest had only Judgement.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 25:15
    The short answer to the meaning of God's Grace is, 'God's unmerited favour or kindness shown to us'. That is, God has chosen to show us His Love & Kindness even when we were the 'last people on Earth' to deserve it. Actually, theologically, I like to look at it this way: God is a Merciful God (i.e. His very being of Love, Holiness, Justice, etc. also has Mercy as a very important integral part of the Being of God). So when God demonstrates His Mercy (that part of His Character) & sheds it upon us an undeserving people, we receive it as His Grace in our lives. I realize that often the words 'Mercy & Grace' are used by Christians interchangeably, but to help my understanding & when sharing God's Word, I like to show a differentiation between the two, though both are certainly vitally connected.

    And God's Mercy, shown to mankind by His Grace, has always been the enjoyment & security of all those who are called by Him to receive it. To Israel, they were selected as God's chosen, for no other reason than to pour out His Love upon them as He had promised to their fathers, & to make them a special (holy) people (see Deuteronomy 7:6-9). And to us today, to as many as have been called to salvation & eternal life, God has persisted in that Love for all of us, by sending us His Son to be our Substitute to receive His punishment for our sins. There was no other way that God could justify in keeping the human race going on in sin. Just as He destroyed all but few in the Great Flood, so His Mind was that He would do it again for the volume of sins that were before Him. But at the appointed time to hold back that Wrath ( Romans 5:6), He sent Jesus to pay sin's price on our behalf & to avert (to change direction) His Anger against us ( 1 John 2:2, 4:10). So His Anger was then placed upon Jesus (as our sin-bearer) that those who put their trust in Him can be declared 'not guilty'. Such was the load that Jesus bore for us: our sin & God's Anger.

    Such is God's Grace given to us.
  • Matheus Henrique da Silva on Psalms 25:15
    What is Grace? How does it act?
  • Chanice stevens on Psalms 25
    I love this chapter of psalm and I also the kjv bible.
  • Fred Scanlan on Psalms 25
    It is a rule with miracles, as well miracles of the Spirit as miracles of the body, that God never does what others can do. As long as there is strength left in the natural laws God does not go beyond them; but our extremity is God's opportunity. Spurgeon answers many questions concerning the times of healing ,spiritual, physical,during the time our Lord Jesus was on earth! Today we have doctors, and priests. It would be nice if we used them as we should! Perhaps lives could be better and more productive? These things are so simple. Satan, will have His day only for awhile! God can work through us if we allow Him ! It would be nice if the leaders of the free world new something about this!
  • Pat Tozi on Psalms 25
    Do you hear the trumpets yet? Soon the sky will open up as a scroll to see Jesus with the other angels on horseback coming down thru the clouds to fight for us. This evil world will meet the maker of His children. As a rush of wind asending high above. The Heavens will shine so strong-- it will move mountains as the quakes shiver as our evil world will suddenly be destroyed. The power of His Light will finally show us because we kept the Faith we have won the victory!!!
  • Patty Tozi on Psalms 25
    Who is God in these times When much confusion is swearing around us?. Day to day we go in a haze of not knowing what to expect next. He is our Savior whom we must all fear. He is our Life after our death. His Son is our Savior in the new Heavens that will surround His followers. So what do we do when all hell comes upon us before His coming. Faith..all keep the faith..Do not straddle the fence no matter what happens. Keep strong in His Loving Light. Go the way Jesus did for others when He walked this Earth long ago. Look at all His Father's creations. Stand still and listen. He will softly say.....He Loves You!!!
