Preparing the Way of the Lord

Psalms 61 – 63

Psalm 61

The eternal unity between God and his faithful

God hears and delivers all those who love him enough to live by every Word of God.  God’s faithful put their trust in him. 

Psalm 61:1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.  61:2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock [Messiah the Christ the Rock of Salvation] that is higher than I.

God will deliver all those who live by every Word of God from the enemies of Satan and bondage to sin and death, raising them up to eternal life 

61:3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

God’s faithful will abide in the presence of God forever, through God’s gift of eternal life

61:4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever [be faithful to God for eternity]: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

God has heard our baptismal commitment to go and sin no more which the faithful have kept, and God will reward our faithfulness with a resurrection to spirit and eternal unity with God the Father and the Husband of our baptismal espousal.

61:5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows [baptismal commitment]: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.

The resurrection of David to eternal life in the resurrection to eternal life of all those who live by every Word of God

61:6 Thou wilt prolong the king’s life: and his years as many generations [eternal life].  61:7 He [David and the faithful] shall abide before God for ever [for eternity]: O prepare mercy and truth [God’s mercy for the repentant and living by the truth of God’s Word will be Salvation], which may preserve him.

God’s faithful will keep their marriage covenant to follow the Husband of their espousal in all things, including living by every Word of God the Father (Mat 4:4, Rev 14:4).

61:8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.


Psalm 62

The absolute trust of the faithful in the Rock of Salvation

Psalm 62:1 Truly my soul waiteth upon God: from him cometh my salvation.

The faithful put their trust ONLY in God and in every Word of God

62:2 He only is my rock and my salvation; he is my defence; I shall not be greatly moved.

The source of wickedness and the inspiration of the wicked is Satan, he is the true enemy.  Satan and all unrepentant sinners will perish forever. 

62:3 How long will ye [the wicked] imagine mischief against a man? ye shall be slain all of you: as a bowing [collapsing] wall shall ye be, and as a tottering [falling] fence.

62:4 They [Satan and the wicked] only consult to cast him [the faithful to God] down from his excellency: they delight in lies: they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly [secretly]. Selah.

Those who live by every Word of God can expect God’s deliverance, therefore they patiently live by his Word waiting on God’s salvation.

62:5 My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him.  62:6 He only [God the Father and Jesus Christ the Husband of our espousal and no one else, no matter what titles they may claim] is my rock and my salvation: he is my defence; I shall not be moved [the true faithful will never be moved from their dedicated commitment to live by every Word of God].

62:7 In God is my salvation and my glory: the rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God.

Trust ONLY in God and set your hearts on him to live by every Word of God

62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah.

Put not your trust in men because the wisdom of men great or lowly, is as nothing beside the Wisdom of every Word of God

62:9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid in the balance, ]Men’s words balanced against the Word of God are nothing in comparison]  they are altogether lighter than vanity.

Do not trust in physical wealth and do not compromise with the Word of God to attain physical wealth, and thereby lose eternity

62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

All people have sinned and Almighty God will judge every person by every Word of God; therefore all will perish unless they sincerely repent of all past sins and commit to sin no more, throwing ourselves at his feet and trusting in his mercy

62:11 God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.  62:12 Also unto thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy: for thou renderest to every man according to his work.


Psalm 63

A declaration of loyalty to God

The faithful hunger like a starving man and thirst for every Word of God, while the wicked live by their own ways

Matthew 5:6 Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness [of God and God’s Word]: for they shall be filled. 

Psalm 63:1 O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;  63:2 To see thy power and thy glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.  63:3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. 63:4 Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name. 63:5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

In the night the wicked meditate on how to gain advantage over others, while the faithful considers how to apply the Word of God to every situation

63:6 When I remember thee upon my bed, and meditate on thee in the night watches.

The faithful are safe under the wings of the Mighty One of Moses, and are secure putting all their trust in the Mighty Hand of God

63:7 Because thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice. 63:8 My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me.

God will deliver his faithful; and the unrepentant wicked will surely be destroyed

63:9 But those that seek my soul [the wicked who seek to destroy the life of the faithful to God], to destroy it, shall go into the lower parts of the earth [eternal death]63:10 They shall fall by the sword: they shall be a portion for foxes [scavengers].

The faithful first fruits who live by every Word of God will be resurrected to live forever as the kings and priests of the Most High

63:11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth [keeps his baptismal commitment] by him shall glory: but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
