Psalm 106-107

After I read the Psalm I thought about the other day when I asked what your favorite scripture was and many of you referenced:

“The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.”

Psalm 106 references 34 examples of sin, and how does God react??‭‭ He saves them for HIS name’s sake. (Verse 8) and then reverses the reason in Verse 45: for their sake he remembered His COVENANT. ❤️

I found this to be a bittersweet read recounting my own list of sins, and his patience and abounding love that keeps him slow to anger.


The next Psalm starts a new division.  Psalm 107 is the first of Book 5.  If you notice they are separated with a Doxology.  A Doxology is an expression of  Praise.  Below I will attach the Doxologies of each section if you are interested.

Psalm 107– A Psalm of Thankfulness.  This Psalm mentions 4 different times the Lord delivers his people and then this beautiful chorus that follows in verse 8,15, 21, and 31 of Thankfulness.

Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind,

15 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind,

21 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind.

31 Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind.

If you have ever been to a Catholic mass, something similar is repeated in chorus from the congregation.
