    Some scripture about not receiving or lover of gifts, of man.

    Exodus 23:8, Proverbs 15:27, Isaiah 1:23,

    Ezekiel 22:12
  • Which scripture warns us against loving receiving gifts on Psalms 3
    I am quite sure I have seen scripture warning us about loving receiving material gifts, thank you

    Hi Grace. Maybe Jeremiah was thinking of the spirit behind those hoardes of people that were set to take David's life. The word for 'people' in Hebrew, allows for 'people, nations, army, creatures', so the singer might be wanting to emphasize the demonic motivation of the many seeking after David's life. Though clearly unfaithful to Scripture wording, he probably saw the spirit behind their quest which needed emphasizing.
  • Grace - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Ahhh. Psalms 3. I love this Psalm.

    I love listening to Jeremiah Yokum sing it! The only thing that bothers me about when Jeremiah sings Psalms three is that he changes the word people to demons and I don't know why. But we are not supposed to change the scripture. And I love Jeremiah he is awfully anointed! So I'm confused about that. Maybe I should ask him. Or maybe there's some thing about the translation of people in Psalms through in the original language that I don't know about because I have not studied that yet.Ester Mui sings scripture also.

    Dear James,

    My prayers are with you as you work trough your doubts. There is still a measure of faith planted within you by the Holy Spirit, or you would not be asking this question. So, trust that God will renew and grow your faith as you seek Him wit all of your heart. He will draw near to you as you draw near to Him.

    I am sorry that you have gone through so much illness and loss. That is a huge, painful, heartbreaking trial! I pray for the Lord to comfort you and continue to bless you with all you need. May your son be blessed by you and be a blessing to you as he grows. May your son come to know Jesus as you work through this faith challenge. God is able to do all of these things. I pray that you can believe this, as well.
  • Coming Back Home To Your Father - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Dear Father, I return now to you, the Bible, and your Word. I pray for guidance as I listen for your voice. Let me return to what is most important-you. Help my attitude to change so that instead of focusing on others and events to meet my needs, I can turn to you and find the love, purpose, and direction I seek.

    Lord you said in Joel 2:25, 32

    "And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath Eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

    2:32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered:"

    1 John 1:9

    If we confess our sins, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

    [Ask the Lord to renew your faith as you read your Bible]

    Your first reading assignment:

    Satan tried to destroy Job's faith and trust in God. He took his home, animals, all his kids died in a wicked storm ( Job 1) Jobs health hit rock bottom; his friends accused him:

    In the last chapter, God gave him back ten times more than what he lost.

    Grow your faith consuming scripture. Keep coming back here for fellowship; till you find a church that teaches Bible.
  • James on Psalms 3
    I once lost my faith in god due to prolonged illness that resulted on me losing a good job and having to sale my home. Before I got well again my wife ( now exwife) bore me my first born. My son is a blessing, that I can better appreciate due to the storm.

    What does the bible say about regaining faith?
  • Renee - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Thank you very much for your return comments to me I think you made more sense than anyone else I'm going to follow you instructions your instructions I have read verses that didn't make much sense and I read them again and again like you said and they started to come together nicely but still a long ways to go I've read the Bible but as you said just reading the Bible it really isn't anything but reading and studying is a different subjects you very much for your input on this matter,God bless you.

  • Kent Bass - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Hi Renee. The Bible (basic instructions before living earth) is your guide to life. How you should live, and what you should do. At the core of the message is the fact that all men must be saved by accepting our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  • S Spencer - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Hi Renee.

    Once we have given our life to the Lord with a pure heart God will make his abode with you. John 14;23.

    I would say start out reading and studying the word in prayer. Some make the mistake and read the bible as if its an ordinary book, " It is a collection of 66 books that harmonize as one authored by God himself and revealed to us by the Holyspirit that abides in us when converted. Study with faith and patience and often as you can and the Lord will reward you as he pleases.

    KEYS: ( Trust in the Lord.)

    Here is a few things worth mentioning:

    #1. Its not how many times you have read the bible that opens eyes, It's the empty vessel and pure heart that you take to the Lord.

    #2. Starting out stay away from studying viewpoints. Often people let a viewpoints shape their theology rather than letting their theology shape their viewpoints.

    #3. Get a hold of a good concordance, and perhaps a King James study bible.

    #4. Don't spiritualize all the text, And there is nothing wrong with asking questions, test everything in the light of scripture. FELLOWSHIP IS IMPORTANT!

    #5. Don't be discouraged by the false teachers, and learn to mark them. ( Mathew 7:15-20. ) They should have the fruit of the spirit. Galatians 5:22-23.

    #6. Start afresh. Scrap all the conceptions you have of the bible or that you have heard and let the Holyspirit guild you.

    #7. Let your study be the main source of your revelation.


    1 John 2:27. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. Also Read 1 Corinthians 2:10-16.

    There is some great teachers on this site that I'm sure will be more than happy to help you as you go on your journey.

    God bless.

    Hi Renee , the Bible is a very big book , full of pertinent information . I've been reading it half my life and I'm still learning from it so I guess the key is to be patient and accept that it may take you the rest of your life to feel confident enough to say that you understand it reasonably well . That's all I would say about my understanding , it's reasonable . It's a lifetime commitment and the best one you will ever make . The first few times I read it I started at Genesis and read through to Revelation . Now I read a couple of Old Testament books and then one New . I'm sorry to disappoint you but the chances of you ever understanding everything 100 per cent are quite slim , but you will enjoy it I'm sure . Be patient and determined and it will be clear to you , eventually . The fact that you don't have some one telling you what to think as you read it is , as far as I'm concerned a good thing ! God is not the author of confusion . Read , read , re read and then read again . Come on here any time to ask questions but you may get four very different answers to any question you ask ! Enjoy .

    Reply to Renee Ellis Great Question: "How is the best way to learn the Bible if you're reading it yourself?"

    Precious friend, Renee, since the Blessed Holy Spirit is our Teacher For 'understanding,' please see God's 'Simple' Will: Link

    Precious Renee, Please Be Richly Encouraged, Enlightened, Exhorted, and Edified!

    ( 2 Timothy 2:15; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 1:3-9; Ephesians 3:9 = Grace/Mystery fellowship {Romans - Philemon}, For ALL "to SEE," today,? )

    My 'suggestion,' after you are saved, and have 'received The Holy Spirit for understanding,' would be to 'start reading' Romans Through Philemon {God's GRACE Message for Today}, and then 'learn {probably slowly} as you read The Rest Of The Bible!'

    Romans 15:4

    "For Whatsoever Things Were Written Aforetime Were Written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of The Scriptures might have Hope." Amen?


    Please note, that is 'my suggestion' only; others may 'suggest' Different 'ways of learning'...

    May God 'Richly' Encourage you, Renee, on your spiritual journey With HIM!
  • Renee Ellis on Psalms 3
    Can you teach me the Bible so I understand what it's saying ?
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Indeed T. Levis, the great joy & satisfaction that comes when one finds that piece of gold in the Scriptures, which isn't simply to satisfy our hunger for the Word, as when it provides the very answer we need for our lives or to minister to another person.
  • T. Levis - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Thanks so much!!! I didn't know those even existed. Past few years I've found deeper meaning to: Proverbs 2:4 , Matthew 13:44 Please excuse my interruption.
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 3
    Hello Patty. That's actually a difficult question to answer as there have been many attempts, over the centuries, to translate the Bible into English. Even in the first century, folk such as Bishop of Sherborne, the Venerable Bede, Abbot Aelfric, etc., made attempts to translate portions of the Bible into English. Of course, the English used then would not be legible by us today. Yet, in 1382 AD, John Wycliffe was credited with producing the first English Bible in its entirety. I've never ever seen one to read & handle it, but if you search on the Web, as I did, you can try to read it. I tried but couldn't read most of it.

    Then we have William Tyndale, who in 1526 AD produced the complete New Testament in English (printed in England) & one, Miles Coverdale, finished the work in 1535 AD, printed in Antwerp, Belgium. So, it was only from the 16th & 17th Centuries that the English translations became more familiar to our reading & comprehension. And this was seen in the Tyndale Bible, the Great Bible, the Geneva Bible, & of course, our beloved King James Bible (in 1611 AD).
  • Colorado Patty on Psalms 3

    What year was it?

    Where was it printed?

  • Cassundra Renee' Sims on Psalms 3
    Good Morning; just wanted to send a spiritual message to everyone please let us keep our FAITH in GOD don't let this covid-19 pandemic get to us we're all GODS children and as HE says "he will never leave you nor forsake you" and in PSALM 121; look to the hills from whence cometh my help, my help cometh from the LORD which made heaven and earth. TRUST HIM with all your heart.

    JESUS loves you and so do I have a blessed and prosperous day.
  • Cassundra Renee' Sims on Psalms 3
    Good morning church family as God blesses us to see another day, let's give him all glory and praise....for each day is a gift from thy Father in Heaven, this is why HE calls it the PRESENT. He sustained us and kept us alive throughout the night, and allowed us to see another day. He is the reason for this season that we breathe, move and have our being in him, God bless everyone and be safe out there.
  • Gordon K39Opere on Psalms 3:5
    In deed our God is the author and sustainer of our life Glory and honor return to Him.
  • Drama F Watson on Psalms 3
    God will never forsake us his children. He is so gracious to answer our prayers. It doesn't matter how big or how little our problems are, he is always there to forgive and help. I just needed to be reminded of Psalms 3 today. He is the lifter of our heads. We are not to bow down to this world because we are not of this world. David knew his God and how he had come through for him in the past from the time he was a little boy. WE HAVE A HISTORY with God. We KNOW he can do anything for us because of that. He may not answer right then and he may not answer how we want, but rest assured he will answer and it will be the right answer and the right time. I can look back when I lost my mother, father and brother in less than 7 months and my father and brother in less than a week. God's timing was perfect as each one stepped out of this world. If you are not saved reading this, I would ask you to just believe in Jesus and ask him to save you. He will do that for you because you are loved by him and you are important to him.

    The background to why Absalom wanted to kill his father, King David, would be too long to share here. I recommend you read 2 Samuel from Chapters 13 to 18 to get the full picture.

    But in a nutshell: Absalom had his step-brother Amnon killed as revenge for Amnon's incest with Absalom's sister (Amnon's step-sister). As the older brother, Absalom would have been next in line to the throne after David but David learned prophetically that his younger son, Solomon, would be the next king. This caused Absalom much anger & he sought to kill his father David.

    Absalom by this time had gathered a very large following & an army as well. David now feared his son, but still loved him & wanted him kept safe. However, in the midst of battle between the armies of David & Absalom, Absalom rode fast on his mule & his long flowing hair got caught in the low branches of a tree on which he hung. And one, Joab, then thrust three arrows into the helpless Absalom so that he died. King David was in great grief after getting news of the death of his son & we have that much quoted cry of his: "And the king was much moved, and went up to the chamber over the gate, and wept: and as he went, thus he said, O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!".

    This is just a very quick summary for you; to get a fuller understanding of this account, you will need to read those chapters.

    Why his son wanted to kill him

    If it was your mate that did the adultery, then you may divorce them and are free to marry another.
  • Terri on Psalms 3:3
    I think that this is a great verse to remind us that we are safe with Jesus Christ and we don't have to worry how big the enemies army is!
