Psalms Chapter 73 Discussion

  • David on Psalms 73
    Remember Brethren and friends to study and rightly divide the Word of Truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 Then were are able to filter everything we hear or read on this forum or any where else through the Word of God. 2 Corinthians 10: 3-5. For there are some who will try and miss lead through false teachings and heresies, always search the Scriptures. 2 Peter 2: 1-3

    May the Lord shine His face on all today, and that we may find comfort in Him and His Word.

    God Bless everyone as we go through this Pandemic, economic slow down, and social/political unrest. Pray for our leaders

    1 Timothy 2:1-6

    Only the Lord Jesus Christ can solve our current woes.

    Thank you for clarifying that for me.

    Ann. Looking at the Hebrew for this word (in Psalm 73:26) & also its use in Psalm 119:57 & elsewhere, the most applicable meaning to the word 'portion', would be 'possession'. In both cases, the Psalmists delight in having God as their possession & the converse being true also, that they also delighted God and were His possession.
  • Ann Ross on Psalms 73
    In verse 26 it says that God is the strength of my heart and my "portion" forever. What does "portion" mean in lay terms?
  • Stanjett on Psalms 73:4
    Come on people. Most of you are commenting on other parts of the bible, not Gen. Go to those places to put in your comments.

    Anon, my Bible begins in each Psalm with who authored it (some will not have author names).

    You can just use a highlighter to underline those names.

    Just because not all Psalms are not labeled with a name, does not make them suspicious.

    In the recent discovery of more Dead Sea Scrolls, almost all of the Book of Psalms were Recovered. The original Scrolls! A private collector had some, but all of them are recovered now.

    Go google that. I did. Many archaeological objects are being found now after decades of search. They've found markers that show the land which God have to Israel.

    Everyone is very excited about it! Especially Israel scientists that are restoring them.

    Psalms 73:4 Context

    1(A Psalm of Asaph.)

    Who told you it was a psalm of Asaph, I wish to find out who else wrote the psalms and when they were added into the psalms. Were they translated from the original Jewish/Greek text. Who was Asaph.

    This is a sincere request.
  • Derek Lewis sr on Psalms 73:26
    God said all man are created equal. As a spiritual man. All man aren't treated equally.

    Verse 25 reads: who have i in heaven but thee? it does not say "who have i in heaven but thee and deceased family. the dead in christ shall rise first. they can't do that if they are already in heaven ! think it through.
  • MICHAEL A HART on Psalms 73
    KJV1611 Psalm 73:28 ... I haue put my trust in the Lord God, that I maydeclare all thy workes. ... should read "may declare"
  • Hazel on Psalms 73
    Thanks be to God the father this psalms 73 is the making of me I felt every word of it is personal to me,
  • Daniel on Psalms 73
    Anonymousplz, no one has family or loved ones waiting in heaven for them. As it is revealed many places in Scripture, after death we will remain in a state like we are "sleeping" until judgement day
  • Anonymousplz - in Reply on Psalms 73
    um, sorry, but I think it means that he had no loved ones or family to greet him when he got to heaven.
  • Anonymousplz on Psalms 73
    Their eyes stand out with fatness...
  • Gary Westgerdes on Psalms 73
    Verse 25 shows that God is whom we have in heaven; no Catholic saints or the virgin Mary.
  • BSP on Psalms 73
    Verse 22~The psalmist here admits that he was like an unreasoning animal. He needed to really take time to think and reason things out so that he would have the right viewpoint.

    Verse 17: Asaph was helped to get the right view when he went to the temple.
  • A disciple on Psalms 73
    "But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked." This Psalm of Asaph is a great instruction for everyone who is feeling overwhelmed by the difficulty of the way, by their personal struggles and afflictions and griefs. The Lord will one day make us know all things, and why we had to suffer so much.
  • Lu2677 on Psalms 73
    Psalms 73:25 "Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon the earth, that I desire beside thee." 28"But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I might declare all thy works." Amen. V.18"Surely didst thou set them in slippery places,thou cast them down into destruction."
  • A disciple on Psalms 73
    "Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins." The commandment of God in its fullness and perfection, is that we take a course in life to maintain and cultivate a good and tender conscience; just as we strive WITH (not against!) the Holy Spirit which Jesus has given into our hearts, against the selfish and cowardly and corrupting influences of unlawful fleshly desires, and thinking.
  • A disciple on Psalms 73
    "When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; until I went into the sanctuary of God; then understood I their end." This wisdom and insight into some of the common hazards and snares put along our way, is very valuable when we might be put to the test about the difficulties we are set to encounter. We all know that murmuring is sin; but here we can understand its root and evil workings.
  • BSP on Psalms 73
    Verse 28 shows that it is good for us to draw near to God. We can only experience the benefits of drawing close to Jehovah God if we put forth the effort.
  • Tomp Yeahbut on Psalms 73
    It's like Lazarus and the rich man, they get theirs here and now, ours must be delayed gratification which is hard to take at times.
  • Mark verrell on Psalms 73
    this psalm is very enlightening "who have I in Heaven but YOU GOD" 'there is no one on earth that I desire"
  • Michael C. on Psalms 73
    It is so good and comforting to read the many brothers' and sisters' comments and praises of the Lord on this site. I just want to exhort everyone who loves the Lord Jesus, never, NEVER to give any place to the liar and the slanderer, as to whether or not you're being treated fairly by God. If He ordains us to suffer anything, He has a purpose in it, and He will give us our wages at the day's end.
  • Michael C. on Psalms 73
    What kind of spurious Christianity do so many have, who are seemingly so ready to give Jesus the back, flee like cowards, and lose heart because of the contradictions of the ungodly, or the difficulties of the way! "The cup which my Father has given me to drink, shall I not drink it?" And as it goes with our Master, we shouldn't expect better for ourselves. Is your treasure all in this evil time?
  • BSP on Psalms 73
    Like Asaph, seeing the wicked prosper can cause us to envy the wrongdoers or become discouraged and see no value in serving God, but verse 17 shows how meeting together with fellow believers can help us to fight this negative thinking by helping us to get God's viewpoint, readjusting our outlook, and giving us spiritual insight so that we can strengthen our faith and remain loyal to God.
