April 13, 2021 – Psalms 87-91

Two of the most well-known psalms are found, here: the song of Moses in which he declares, “Lord, you have been our dwelling place in all generations” (90:1) & the 91st psalm, which offers such encouragement: “He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty” (91:1).


Much less known, but hear Ethan the Ezrahite as he declares the words of the Lord: “I have found David, my servant; with my holy oil I have anointed him, so that my hand shall be established with him; my arm also shall strengthen him. . . . And I will make him the firstborn, the highest of the kings of the earth. My steadfast love I will keep for him forever, and my covenant will stand firm for him. I will establish his offspring forever and his throne as the days of the heavens. . . . His offspring shall endure forever, his throne as long as the sun before me” (89:20-21, 27-29, 36). Ah! Here, again, is the promise to David of a descendant! How powerfully does the Old Testament point us to Christ, the Son of David.


Hosanna, son of David!

Blessed be his holy name.

Glory to the Son of David,

who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna, hosanna.

Glory to the Son of David,

who comes in the name of the Lord.

Glory to the Son of David,

who comes in the name of the Lord. -- Georg Joseph Vogler
