Jehovah’s Faithfulness


     The immutable truth that God is faithful to His word permeates the pages of the Holy Scriptures.  Jehovah’s faithfulness is the focus of Psalm 105.  Here, it is written, “Oh, give thanks to the Lord!  Call upon His name; make known His deeds among the peoples!  Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; talk of all His wondrous works!  Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord!  Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore!  Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth, O seed of Abraham His servant, you children of Jacob, His chosen ones!  He is the Lord our God; His judgments are in all the earth.  He remembers His covenant forever, the word which He commanded, for a thousand generations” (Psalm 105:1-8).

     Beginning in verse 9, the psalmist traces God’s enduring faithfulness over a span of more than five hundred years:

  • To the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (vv. 9-13).
  • Through Joseph (vv. 16-22).
  • To Israel while in Egypt (vv. 23-25).
  • Through Moses and Aaron (vv. 26-41).

     “For He remembered His holy promise and Abraham His servant.  He brought out His people with joy, His chosen ones with gladness.  He gave them the lands of the Gentiles, and they inherited the labor of the nations, that they might observe His statutes and keep His laws” (vv. 42-45).

     “Praise the Lord!” (v. 45).
