Psalm 138:1-2 “I will praise You with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing praise unto You. I will worship toward Your holy temple, and praise Your Name for Your lovingkindness and for Your truth: for You have magnified Your Word above all Your Name.”
Praise the Lord with your whole heart as Psalm 138 lovingly commands. Seek His face and worship Him. He is worthy. Meditate on the last part of verse 2 that says, “You have magnified Your Word above all Your Name.” Then read Romans 11:11-15. Ask the Lord to show you His heart and give you understanding about this verse. He is so worthy. He is so perfect. He is Yahweh!
Psalm 138:2b “You have magnified Your Word above all Your Name.” Romans 11:11-15. “I say then, have they (the Jews) stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness? For I speak to you Gentiles, since I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify my office: if by any means I may provoke to envy them who are my flesh, and might save some of them. For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?
Isaiah 62: “For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until its righteousness goes forth as brightness, and its salvation as a lamp that burns.
And the Gentiles shall see your righteousness, and all kings your glory: and you shall be called a new name, which the mouth of the LORD shall name.
You shall also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of your God.
You shall no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall your land any more be termed Desolate; but you shall be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah: for the LORD delights in you, and your land shall be married.
For as a young man marries a virgin, so shall your sons marry you: and as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you.
I have set watchmen upon your walls, O Jerusalem, who shall never hold their peace day nor night: you that make mention of the LORD, keep no silence.
And give Him no rest, till He establishes, and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the earth.
The Lord has sworn by His right hand, and by the arm of His strength, Surely I will no more give your grain to be food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your wine, for which you have labored:
But they that have gathered it shall eat it and praise the LORD; and they that have brought it together shall drink it in the courts of My holiness.
Go through, go through the gates; prepare you the way of the people; build up, build up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a banner for the people.
Behold, the LORD has proclaimed unto the ends of the earth, Say you to the daughter of Zion, Behold, your salvation comes; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him.
And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and you shall be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.”
