Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 105 – 106

Verse of the Day: Psalm 106:48 – “Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, From everlasting even to everlasting. And let all the people say, Amen. Praise ye Jehovah.”

Once again we come to the benediction that closes the section of Psalms. 

These two Psalms are a fitting close to the section that tends to mirror Numbers. We have been through Psalms that speak of wandering and trusting. Psalm 105 today is a song of Praise to God. It focuses on Israel in their early history. It celebrates God’s faithfulness to His covenant to Abraham – calling the people to remember to be faithful to God as He has never been unfaithful to them.

Psalm 106 emphasizes the rebellion of the people during this same time period. 105 is about remembering, 106 is about forgetting. God remembers, but the people forget.

Prayer: Gracious Lord, I am so thankful that You never forget even though I do. You are faithful even when I am unfaithful. Amen.
