Psalms Chapter 75 Discussion

  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 75 - 1 year ago
    Psalm 75.

    Once again; we see Asaph as he does quite often give a prophetic statement as to the fate of the earth in the end with several cross references of interest.

    Verse 2 seems to be a veiled reference to the Rapture; or possibly those who are Jews that believe and survive to the end of the Tribulation in the reference to "when I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly. (see 2 Cor. 5:10; Exodus 20:35-38 in the context of Exodus 20:34 as a future event of gathering from the nations).

    Verse 3 reminds us of heaven and earth passing away in Revelation 21:1-4 and Matthew 24:35).

    Verses 4 through 7 remind us of the "little horn" ( Dan. 7:8) who is Antichrist himself. God allows Satan and his throne in the Tribulation to suit his purposes; ultimately to separate wheat from chaff; and to draw everyone together at Armageddon ( Rev. 19; Psalm 2).

    Revelation 14:10 is much like verse 8 referring to the "wine of the wrath of God". That theme is also seen in Jeremiah 25:15-17; and similar themes in Isaiah and without a doubt in other scriptures.

    Again the end of this Psalm shows that only praising God is worthwhile (v. 9) and right wins out in the end. That is basically a big theme in all of scripture; the meek shall inherit the earth ( Matt. 5:5).

    Dear Diane, rest in peace and Merry Christmas. If you read v 11 you understand that the Lord Is, Ego Eimi. He is the one who decides. It is He who draws us to Himself. Without Him, we wouldn't even be having this conversation.

    Trust that He is with you every second.

    Hope this helped you. Saw that you had not received a reply. That's why I answered. Be well and look up to Him to whom all glory is due. Jesus loves you in Christ. 1 Peter 2 Chapter. Stay close to the script. And He is close too u.
  • Diane on Psalms 75 - 1 year ago
    I would like clarity of verse 8, exactly what does it mean. Thank you

    Hi Phil , I'm not always great at explaining things but here goes , it seems to me that the cup and its contents are a metaphor for God's judgement and punishment and wrath on and towards nations and the sinners in them , here are some other verses that will probably make it clearer than I can : Jeremiah Ch 25 V 15-18 , also Ch 49 V 12 and Ch 51 V 6+7 . Also Lamentations Ch 4 V 21 , Habbakuk Ch 2 V 16 , Zechariah Ch 12 V 2+3 and Revelation Ch 14 V 9-11 , Ch 16 V 16-19 and finally , the best chapter for self explanation Ch 18 . Hope these verses explain it to you .

    "And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:" Rev 12:1

    The woman depicted here is Israel.

    This imagery harkens back to Joseph's dream:

    "And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?" Gen 37:9-10

    His father knew it was about them: Jacob (Israel) the sun, Rachel the moon and his brothers as the stars (the 12 tribes of Israel).

    The woman brings forth a man-child, Jesus:

    "And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child." Rev 12:13

    The woman (Israel) will flee under intense Satanic persecution for 3 1/2 years of The Great Tribulation:

    "And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent." Rev 12:14
  • Homer - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    That is a good question. In most cases the Bible defines itself. If I were to guess, it's an allegory of the 144,000 sealed from death for 42 months (a thousand two hundred and threescore days). The elect witnesses; they do daily battle with anti-Christ. They make use the extra hours of darkness to survive.

    The 144,00 sealed in Revelation 7 are the same two witnesses from Revelation 11. The two witnesses are from the house from Israel & the house of Judah: 12 tribes. Now, Revelation 11:3 says "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth."

    I hope that makes enough sense to you to form your own conclusions.

    Who or what is the woman in Rev 12:1 clothed in the sun?
  • Rod - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    It's not the translation of the KJV bible that lacks merit or credibility, but only people that misquote and mistranslate.

    Matthew 7:15 "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

    Revelation 22:18 "For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:"

    Revelation 22:19 "And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book."

    Matthew 5:18 "For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

    Psalms 22:1 "(To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David.) My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?"

    Matthew 27:46 "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

    Mark 15:34 "And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?"

    I see Psalm 22:1. There appears to be something more to this than I previously understood. Thanks.
  • Philip - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    Jesus's recites Psalm 22 to remind the Priesthood that they didn't recognize him as God, even as they stood beside him, even though it was written in the Old Testament. Read the entire Psalm and see if you would?

    Psalms 22:1 (To the chief Musician upon Aijeleth Shahar, A Psalm of David.) My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring? 2O my God, I cry in the daytime, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent. 3But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel. 4Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver

    "And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Mat 27:46

    You asserted, "I instinctively know the statement to be false; the king of kings would not whine like a pleb." You were referring to a quote from some other translation, "how could you forsake me?"

    Jesus had been in various stages of anguish for hours from the previous evening.

    "Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt." Mat 26:38-39

    And Doctor Luke pointed out, "And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground." Luk 22:44

    So for nearly 12 hours Jesus was in agony of soul, then severely beaten and abused prior to the crucifixion. However it was on the cross He experienced excruciating (a word we get from crucifixion) physical pain but not as painful as receiving The Wrath of God His Father. The ONLY time in The Gospels where He does not address God as Father!

    "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." 2Co 5:21

    The sinless Lamb of God, bearing our sin, and The Wrath of God.

    "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."Joh 3:36

    Finally, Jesus is quoting Psalm 22:1. "LOOK HERE!" This Psalm of David was prophetic about The Messiah. "But I am a worm" (Tolah, a scarlet worm that dies and the secretion turns from red to white in three days) "They pierced my hands and my feet." "They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture." "He hath done this" (It is finished!).

  • Adam - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    It sounds like you're attacking the KJV translation, but what makes you an expert? Are you more of an expert than a large team of Greek and Hebrew scholars who spent seven years meticulously going word for word to translate the Bible as accurate as possible? What is your evidence and what are your credentials for claiming that you are right and they are wrong? Have you prayed to God about this before posting your attacks on God's Word or did you just post your attack on a whim?
  • Peggy - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    No dear. Marylin shared a believable translation of what Jesus said about 'forsaking'. The account we are given in KJV lacks merit or credibility. The translators did a horrible job.
  • Sacha - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    I think you might be looking for psalm 22 ,i think Jesus was quoting this psalm in order to draw the watching rreligious hierarchy to it as they would or should have known that psalm very well and it is ALL about Jesus .
  • Peggy - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    You mentioned an alternative translation of Jesus on the cross saying 'how could you forsake me?' Can you tell me where to find the translation you quoted? That line has always puzzled me because I instinctively know the statement to be false; the king of kings would not whine like a pleb. Only a fool would believe that that book was shielded from edits, while full well knowing satan is the god of this world. However, bring up the Bibles' credibility here, you will get Christians bending over backwards with scriptures to defend the indefensible for ego sake.
  • Marilyn - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago

    Peggy thanks for responding to my Comment. I agree all things will be revealed. However,

    God will reveal many things before the sound of the Trumpet. He that has ears let him/her "hear"

    what the Spirit says. Also, we are warned to try the Spirit to see if it is from God or the Devil.

    I believe God for myself and pray your strength in the Lord.
  • SkipVought - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    Sacha, you apparently didn't get your reply in the right place to be able to View Thread. It looks like a brand new comment.

    Just FYI.
  • Sacha on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    Adam ,you are resonably good at twisting peoples words in an agressive way in order to get a rise out of them but not good enough to ruffle my feathers ,its always the sign of a weak arguement ,i guess i am a bit older than you so i have a much thicker skin and im not easily wound up ,so as far as im concerned this conversation is over unless you have some thing very pertinent to say .
  • Peggy - In Reply on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago
    All will be revealed at the 7th trumpet.

    Rev 10:7
  • Marilyn on Psalms 75 - 3 years ago

    When will the Comments and enjoyment of the Scriptures open up. I miss so much

    reading how Christians uses and interrupts the Word of God.

    When can we expect this to happen?

    Psalm 75:6

    Verse 6-10. The rise and fall of nations and empires are in this Psalm ascribed to God. He exalts one and puts down another at his pleasure.

    In this he generally uses instrumentality, but that instrumentality is always rendered effectual by his own agency. When nations or individuals are prosperous, and glorious, and powerful, they usually ascribe all to themselves or to fortune. But it is God who has raised them to eminence.

    When they boast He can humble them. In these verses God is considered as the governor of the world, punishing the wicked, and pouring out judgment on his enemies. The calamities of war, pestilence, and famine, are all ministers of providence to execute wrath. Commentary by Alexander Carson.

    This website has a commentary that you can read what the scripture is thought, to explain a verse. Type the scripture in the search box. After it comes up, scroll down until you see the commentary box. Click on that.

    It also has a box so you can go straight to Google if nothing came up on your KJVO search. Have a pad & pencil ready.

    That center column in some Bibles is used to give explanation of scriptures pertaining to the one you are questioning. The letters and numbers correspond to the verse you are reading. I find that really helpful.

    So then, it must come from the North?
