Holy and awesome is His name

“He has sent redemption to His people; He has commanded His covenant forever: Holy and awesome is His name.” – Psa. 111:9

Holy and awesome is His name.

He shall judge among the nations

“The Lord is at Your right hand; He shall execute kings in the day of His wrath. He shall judge among the nations, He shall fill the places with dead bodies, He shall execute the heads of many countries. He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; Therefore He shall lift up the head.” – Psa. 110:5-7

God is supreme. Every knee shall bow.

Save with Your right hand

“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, And Your glory above all the earth; That Your beloved may be delivered, Save with Your right hand, and hear me.” – Psa. 108:5-6

God delivers, saves, and hears.

His wonderful works to the children of men!

“Fools, because of their transgression,
And because of their iniquities, were afflicted. Their soul abhorred all manner of food, And they drew near to the gates of death. Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions. Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! Let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare His works with rejoicing.” – Psa. 107:17-22

These all go together to form a refrain like our modern hymns with their choruses.

The wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people

“Therefore the wrath of the Lord was kindled against His people, so that He abhorred His own inheritance. And He gave them into the hand of the Gentiles, and those who hated them ruled over them. Their enemies also oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand. Many times He delivered them; But they rebelled in their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity.” – Psa. 106:40-43

There are real consequences for defying God.

They forgot God their Savior

“They made a calf in Horeb, and worshiped the molded image. Thus they changed their glory into the image of an ox that eats grass. They forgot God their Savior, who had done great things in Egypt, wondrous works in the land of Ham, awesome things by the Red Sea.” – Psa. 106:19-22

God is the only One worthy of worship.

They soon forgot His works

They soon forgot His works; They did not wait for His counsel, but lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tested God in the desert. And He gave them their request, but sent leanness into their soul.” -Psa. 106:13-16

How often are we the same?

They performed His signs among them

“He sent Moses His servant, and Aaron whom He had chosen. They performed His signs among them, and wonders in the land of Ham.” – Psa. 105:26-27

Wonders done by God through Moses.

The Lord pities those who fear Him

“As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.” – Psa. 103:13-14

God’s wondrous mercy.

Forget not all His benefits

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” – Psa. 103:2-5

Forget not all His benefits.
