Psalms 105, 106

what will the triumph look like?

They paint a history of rescue of the children of Abraham; all to have them wallow in the pits of compromise and idolatry in a strange land. Stiff-necked, unbelieving, forgetful, unappreciative, an embarrassment to the gracious God who had removed shackles of bondage, parted the sea, stifled the adversaries, listened to their mediator Moses, and brought them to a land of plenty.

But He is their “husband” if you will, ever mindful of His covenant (Genesis 17, Psalm 89). He still has a vision of eventual one-time harmony, obedience and glory.

He says as much at the end of this two-chapter chronology:

Psalm 106: 47

Save us, O Lord our God,  and gather us from among the heathen, to give thanks unto thy holy name, and to triumph in thy praise.

My friend Anthony Gomez of South Carolina made the following comment by email:

Psalm 106, in it’s entirety was a daily staple several times a day at the very least for about the first year upon being awoken.
