Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings, from the wicked that oppress me, from my deadly enemies, who compass me about. They are enclosed in their own fat: with their mouth, they speak proudly. They have now compassed us in our steps: they have set their eyes bowing down to the earth: like a lion that is greedy of his prey and as it were a young lion lurking in secret places. Arise O LORD, disappoint him, cast him down: deliver my soul from the wicked, which is thy sword: From men which are thy hand, O LORD, from men of the world, which have their portion in this life and whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children and leave the rest of their substance to their babes. As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness. Psalm 17:8-15 

    David in his prayer is crying for Jehovah God to keep him as the apple of the eye and to hide him under the shadow of thy wings from the wicked that oppress him. From men of this world whose belly thou fillest with thy hid treasure: they are full of children and leave the rest of their substance to their babes. Then he cries as for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied when I awake, with thy likeness. For true satisfaction can only be found in God in the grave when we awake just like Jesus did as the first fruits of them from the dead. For we will see Him as He is and be just like Him.

  • #Hear the right, O LORD, attend unto my cry, give ear unto my prayer that goeth not out of feigned lips. Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal. Thou hast proved my heart; thou hast visited me in the night; thou hast tried me and shalt find nothing; I am purposed that my mouth shall not transgress. Concerning the works of men, by the word of thy lips I have kept me from the path of the destroyer. Hold up my goings in thy paths, that my footsteps slip not. I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me and hear my speech. Show thy marvelous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them. Psalm 17:1-7

    A prayer of David for Jehovah God to hear his prayer which goes out of true lips unto thee. The cry is for God to behold things that are equal. For the just God has proved his heart in the night and found nothing amiss.

  • #Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. O my soul, thou hast said unto the Lord, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee: But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent in whom is all my delight. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night season. I have set the Lord always before me: because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither will thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is the fulness of joy: at thy right hand, there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:1-11

    This Psalm is a picture of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ for He is at the right hand of the Father in heaven and while He was in the grave His flesh did rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell: neither will thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. That is why on the third day He arose from the grave victorious over sin and death. Now we can rest in hope, knowing that we too will be raised from the dead, as He is the first fruits of them that sleep in the grave. What a joy when we see our loved ones knowing that they will be awakened at the midnight cry when Christ calls all His children home.

  • LORD, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly and worketh righteousness and speaketh the truth in his heart. He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor. In whose eyes a vile person is contemned but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt and changeth not. He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved. Psalm 15:1-5

    God is just and a rewarder of the just. He that walks uprightly and works righteousness and speaks the truth in his heart. As well as him that lies not to his neighbor and in whose eyes a vile person is not rewarded. Him that swears to his own hurt in court and changes not. Him that does not put out his money to excessive interest or takes a reward against the just. The person who does these things shall never be moved by Jehovah God.

  • #(To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. They are all gone aside they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no not one. Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread and call not upon the LORD There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor because the LORD is his refuge. Oh that the salvation of Israel has come out of Zion when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of His people, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad. Psalm 14:1-7

    David has noted that the fool has said in heart, there is no God. Jehovah looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand and seek God. What a shame, for they are all gone aside they have all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no not one. God is in the generation of the righteous. O that men will praise the Lord for His goodness and mercy unto the children of men.

  • #(To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) How long wilt thou forget me, O LORD? forever? how long wilt thou hide thy face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? how long shall mine enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; Lest mine, enemy say, I have prevailed against him and those that trouble me rejoice when I am moved. But I have trusted in thy mercy; my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. I will sing unto the LORD because He hath dealt bountifully with me. Psalm 13:1-6

    David is asking many questions of Jehovah God and he says consider and hears me O thou Jehovah lest I sleep the sleep of death. Then he says but I have trusted in thy mercy: my heart shall rejoice in thy salvation. He will sing unto Jehovah because He hath dealt bountifully with me. God is concerned about us when we feel forgotten. So trust in His mercy and rejoice in His salvation too.

  • #(To the chief Musician upon Sheminith, A Psalm of David.) Help Lord; for the godly man ceaseth; for the faithful fail from among the children of men. They speak vanity every one with his neighbor: with flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips and the tongue that speaketh proud things: Who have said, with our tongue, we will prevail; our lips are our own: who is lord over us? For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever. The wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. Psalm 12:1-8

    David cries to Jehovah God for help cause the wicked walk on every side, when the vilest men are exalted. The Lord will arise, He will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. The words of Jehovah are pure words, as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. So trust ye in the Lord forever.

  • #In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, flee as a bird to your mountain? For lo, the wicked bend their bow, they make ready their arrow upon the string, that they may privily shoot at the upright in heart. If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? The Lord is in His holy temple, the Lord's throne is in heaven: His eyes behold, His eyelids try the children of men. The Lord trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loves violence His soul hates. Upon the wicked, He shall rain snares, fire, and brimstone, and a horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; His countenance doth behold the upright. Psalm 11:1-7

    David answers the question if the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do? Trust in the Lord, for His throne is in heaven; and His eyes behold, while His eyelids try the children of men. For the righteous Lord loveth righteousness; for His countenance doth behold the upright in heart. So put all your trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will direct thy path.

  • #He croucheth and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong ones. He said in his heart, God hath forgotten: he hiddeth his face; he will never see it. Arise, O Lord; O God, lift up thine hand; forget not the humble. Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart, thou wilt not require it. Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless. Break thou the arm of the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none. The Lord is King for ever and ever: the heathen is perished out of his land. Lord thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause Thine ear to hear: To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress. Psalm 10:10-18

    The Lord will protect the fatherless and the oppressed of the land, that the man of the earth may no more oppress. He will arise and lift up His hand at the cry of the humble. The Lord will requite mischief and spite with His holy hand. God will break the arm of the evil man so that he can do no more evil. Just wait for thou only the Lord, for though He waits long His judgment is sure to come. 

  • #Why standest thou afar off, O Lord? Why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. For the wicked boasted of his heart's desire and blessed the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murders the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den: he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor when he draweth him into his net. Psalm 10:1-9

    God seems to stand afar off in times of trouble, therefore the wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor. Yet he will be taken in the devices that he imagined. Though the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire and blesses the covetous whom the Lord hates and God is not in all his thoughts. Nevertheless, the way of the wicked will perish, even though he says in his heart I shall not be moved, for I shall not be in adversity. God will judge the wicked at the appointed time, even though the judgment against an evil work is not speedily judged, therefore the children of men commit wickedness. Just wait only on the Lord, for He is a buckler for the poor and the righteous cry and is saved from all their trouble.
