Notes on the structure of

The Deuteronomy book of Psalms.

Deuteronomy is man's name for this book. The name comes from the Greek Septuagent, and means "the second Law". The reason for naming this book as such is that Deuteronomy was a repetition of the Law, with variations, to suit the needs of the new generation in the land. The title in the Hebrew Canon is `elleh haddebarim', "These are the words". The first set of laws were given for instruction to Aaron and his family, the Levitical priests, to lead the people as they traveled in the wilderness for forty years. The second set was given by Moses, which is the law put in layman's terms. The Israelites were about to enter into the promise land; thirty eight years had passed from the time of their captivity, and Moses gathered them all together for his last instructions. Most all of that first generation leaving Egypt were dead and gone, and these were the children and newborns since the time the law was given at mount Sinai.

Thus, in the Deuteronomy Book of Psalms we have the same leading subject. Its teachings, like the other books of Psalms is Dispensational, and grouped around the Word. What a wonderful thing for one to be brought to say "O how I love Thy Law!" (Psalms 119:37), when the breaking of the law was the cause of all the suffering! But it will be noted that this is said only after the Resurrection of the Righteous Magnifier of that Law has been celebrated (Psalms 118).

This is the theme of the Deuteronomy-Book of the Psalms. It consists of forty-four Psalms, in which the title Jehovah occurs 293 times; Jah, 13 times; Elohim occurs only 41 times, and El, 10 times; and Eloha, twice. While the structure of the other books is in two or three sections, this Book of the Law of God is in only one, a perfect whole. The first chapter of this book, like the first chapters of the other four books of the Psalms, set the key-note, or epitome, for the entire book.

In Hebrew "Shehith" or "grave", or pits "Shahath"="to destroy" occurs only here and in Lamentation 4:20. The two passages, taken together, tell us that it is not merely the written Word which delivers from deep afflictions, but that the Living and Divine Word, Who was "taken from their pits", is the only Deliverer of His People from their graves.

Just as Psalms 84 was characteristic of the Leviticus book or the Psalms, and Psalms 90 of the Numbers Book; Psalms 119 will be the characteristic chapter of the book of Deuteronomy. The characteristic then for Psalms 119 is "The quickening and sustaining Word". We will see the verb "Hayah" (to breathe, to live, to continue to live) used sixteen times, and always in the sense of "keeping alive, or continuing in life".

There are five groups of Psalms to this book of Deuteronomy of the Psalms, and within thes five groups there are fifteen "Psalms of degrees". Each of the fifteen years correspond to the fifteen years that were added to Hezekiah's life. Ten of the degrees of Hezekiah correspond with the number of "the degrees" by which the shadow of the sun went backward on the sun-dial of Ahaz, or 2 Kings 20:8-11. The five other degrees relate to David and Solomon. The Solomon Psalms (127) is the very center of this book, with the others equally in front and following the chapter of Solomon.

We will see the last five chapters of this book (146-150) are Hallelujah Psalms, and will echo and reminiscence of the whole of the five books of the Psalms. So lets get into the fifth book of Psalms, the Deuteronomy Book.

 

Book Five of the Psalms

Chapter 107

"The Deuteronomy Book"

"The Delivering and Healing, the Living Word."

"Distress and Deliverance [4-32]."

"Judgment and Blessing [33-41]."

"Rejoice and Praise [42-43]."

 

This Psalms 107 begins the book know as the Deuteronomy book of the Psalms, and within it is part of the law. The underlining theme though of the entire book of Psalms, is a book of love. The love of our Father for His children; for you and all those that will seek after Him. Though Moses spoke these words; these words are the words of Almighty God.

Psalms 107:1 "O give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: For His mercy endureth for ever."

Our Heavenly Father is not for you today and forget you tomorrow gods, of the heathen. You can be sure of his instructions and judgments. They are written in His Word, and that Word endures forever, there is no end to it. He is the same yesterday, as He is today, and that is exactly how He will be for all eternity. God's mercy is there anytime one of His children will reach out and in repentance take it. When you ask for help, it pleases the Father to give it to you.

Psalms 107:2 "Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;"

The enemy is Satan, and the Lord Jesus Christ has already redeemed you from the hand of the enemy. "Redeemed" in the Hebrew text is "ga'al", and it means to redeem by purchase. To buy back something that was your in the first place. Sure this chapter was written in Moses day, and rewritten in David's time, thousands of years before our Lord Jesus Christ went to the cross. As those Kenite Jewish religious leaders witnessed the carrying out of their order, of our Lord's blood being shed on the cross, they witnessed this redeeming taking place. Our Father knew that He would have to defeat the enemy because it was impossible for any of us living in these flesh and blood bodies to do the redeeming. So by that purchase, that price being paid, redeems those that are willing to take part in that sacrifice. Paul puts it this way.

Hebrews 2:14 "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;"

Hebrews 2:15 "And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage."

Psalms 107:3 "And gathered them out of the lands; Form the east, and from the west, From the north, and from the south."

God gathered those that would believe in His Word, and accept the sacrifice of Jesus shed blood on the cross through repentance. Men and women have been drawn for two thousand years from all over this earth to follow Christ. It is the Word of God that gathers the people, those that ears to hear, and eyes to see, to spiritually understand those words that are written to them. The "Word" lights the way for you to follow, and causes the gathering to take place.

This historically is speaking of that time when the Israelites wandered in the wilderness, and after thirty eight years, are about to enter into the promise land. This is talking about one 40 year generation. There is another generation that will be wandering also in a wilderness of a different type, for in that wilderness, the famine is not for the lack of food, but for the hearing of the word of God. We are living in that wilderness prophetically now. It started many years ago, and the promise land that we are about to enter is at the sounding of the seventh trump, at the return of our Lord Jesus Christ to this earth. This is what "the parable of the fig tree" is all about. Our Lord told us to learn it, right after He had told His disciples of the things that would happen before His return.

Matthew 24:32 "Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is night:"

Matthew 24:33 "So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors."

When you see all these things happening, the time of My return is very close.

Matthew 24:34 "Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."

These things are being fulfilled right before our eyes today. The Jews have returned to the lands, both the good and bad figs. The voice of war is everywhere, and even while they sit at one table talking peace. The one world system has been around longer than most people living today, and that one great nation is part of it all. You are living in that generation, and our generation will be here to witness the return of our Lord Jesus Christ at the seventh trumpet.

Matthew 24:35 "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away."

Heaven and earth shall change at the sounding of the seventh trump, and the evil things dealing with these flesh and blood bodies will be gone, destroyed, because we will no longer be living in these flesh and blood bodies. How ever know this: That Millennium age of Christ's kingdom here on earth: God's great white throne Judgment: Hell fire turning Satan and his followers to ashes: and the eternal age will take place exactly as He spoke it and it is written in His Holy Word, we call the Bible.

It is His Word that draws His people all over the world to Him and the truth of Father's Word.

Psalms 107:4 "They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; They found no city to dwell in."

The "way" is a path or road that you follow, and the Israelites wandered in that path through the wilderness for forty years. No they did not linger in any city, but stayed on that path to their promise land. They were directed by the pillar of fire by night, and the clouds by day, given the protection from the heat of the desert. God lead the way for them to follow. Just as He lead them, He also will lead you into our Promise land of His kingdom.

Psalms 107:5 "Hungry and thirsty, Their soul fainted in them."

As time when by, they grew weak in the desert.

Psalms 107:6 "Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, And He delivered them out of their distresses."

This will be repeated several time as we study here, for they would continually stray back into their old ways. Then the troubles would come and they would cry out again for God deliverance. It's no different then as now, for as one crisis comes, the first thing we do is go to church and cry out to the Lord, and as it passes and the protection is given, we go back to our old ways. No they will not talk about loving our Father or being a Christian, but they will plead for His mercies. They will submit to Him until the trouble has passed.

Psalms 107:7 "And He led them forth by the right way, That they might go to a city of habitation.

God led them for that generation so that in the end, they would be in the promise land. Notice that God led them in "the right way", the right path, so stay out of the left path. This is telling us that these people suffered, they hungered and they thirst, and all the other discomforts that happen on such a journey. God never took them the shortest way, but He told you He would take you the right way. It is expected that you would gain a little maturity along the road in your live, and in His Word. His paying for your sins is the way that you are going to travel in your life. Sure you will fall short from time to time, and that is where repentance and forgiveness through the blood of Christ allows you to pick yourself up and continue in that right way.

Next time you feel like crying out for help from Father, stop and analyze yourself. Talk to the Father, and repent and get yourself straightened out and back on the right path. God does not promise you the shortest trip, the shortest way, but it will be a sure way, the right way, which is to say, "Christ".

Psalms 107:8 "Oh that me would praise the Lord for His goodness. And for His wonderful works to the children of men!"

God's goodness is His loving kindness that He shows to those He loves. God is patient with us, and He is there to lift us up when the going gets tough. Learn to rest in the Will of God. Stop and think on this for a moment.

Matthew 11:27 "All things are delivered unto Me of My Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man of the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him."

Our Lord will reveal Himself to those that seek after Him and His Way.

Matthew 11:28 "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

Jesus is inviting you to come to Him with your heavy burdens. He knows those troubles, the sickness, money problems, and all the other troubles you may have, and this is a promise that you can count on. "...I will give you rest."

Matthew 11:29 "Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls."

God know what those enemies of yours are thinking and he can cause your problems to take another turn for the best. A yoke is hooked between two so that the stronger will take up some of the load that the weaker can't handle. When you can't handle a problem or time in your life, turn it over to the Lord, for He knows how to handle it.

Matthew 11:30 "For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light."

Psalms 107:9 "For He satisfieth the longing soul, And filleth the hungry soul with goodness."

This is the only real soul food in the world, that spiritual food that is the meet of His Word. God will open the Word to you and fill your soul to give you comfort in those times of need. Notice that this is talking about you soul, not the flesh body, but the soul that longs to be with the Lord.

Psalms 107:10 "Such as sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, Being bound in affliction and iron;"

This darkness is oppression, and even though you are in oppression it was for a reason.

Psalms 107:11 "Because they rebelled against the words of God, And contemned the counsel of the Most High:"

This Bible you are reading is the words of God; His Words to you. This is also a promise to you, that if you rebel against His Word, you are going to meet oppression. You can count on it. This Word is God's counsel direct to you. In the wilderness, those Israelites despised "the counsel of the Most High", and they paid a price for their rebellion. He is our counsel, and there is no better counsel.

Psalms 107:12 "Therefore He brought down their heart with labour; They fell down, and their was none to help."

God brought down their heart with hard labor. When they fell and died in the wilderness, there was no helper in their sight. God was present all the time, if they would call out to Him, but they refused. We have many examples from our Father's Word of how He desires to help those in trouble, if they will just ask. Yet time after time, our people blindly stumble along in their own ways. They find pleasure in talking about the hard times, the hard labor, when God is there all the time to make that way easy and acceptable if they will just ask. Friend, confide in Him, seek His help for He wants to lead you. Seek His counsel to avoid your troubles before the problems come.

Psalms 107:13 "Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, And He saved them out of their distresses."

We will see this over and over here in the Psalms, for it seems that our people do not think of God's ways, and His counsel until after it's to late. Sure here is was during this wilderness trip, but it is just as true today as for our forefathers. When they were hungry God fed them, when they were thirsty, God brought the water from the rock. He gave them quail to eat for meat and manna from heaven for their bread. "He saved them out of their distresses."

Just as He saved the Israelites from their distresses, He will do that for you also when you cry out to him in repentance, and ask for His help. He knows your problems better than you do, but it is up to you to ask for His help. The biggest problem for people today is they seek the physical bread, rather than their spiritual problem to be solved. You cry out, "Why won't God help me?" When if you took a look at the "me" you would see you are your own problem. You seek to do and live your life your own way, and not God's way. Friend, If God could find an excuse to help you, He would. There is something wrong when that help doesn't come. Wake up and search your life for those things that keep Father's blessings from you.

Psalms 107:14 "He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, And brake their bands in sunder."

God Truth set their souls and flesh free.

Psalms 107:15 "Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!"

Why won't men and women praise the Lord for the goodness He has given to them? When God does something good in your life or your family members, stop and thank Him for that blessing. Most people today are to busy playing with Satan and his toys in life, as well as getting tied up in the ways of the world.

Psalms 107:16 "For He hath broken the gates of brass, And cut the bars of iron in sunder."

Just as God broke the gates of brass and cut the bars of iron in sunder to allow the Israelites to pass, He will do that for you today. However, you have to submit to Him first. Submit means to repent and be a loving child of His: To follow His ways. When you are in His Way, Then he will take care of you.

Psalms 107:17 "Fools because of their transgression, And because of their iniquities, are afflicted."

Lets go to Proverbs 1:7 to understand what a fool is: "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: But fools despise wisdom and instruction." Fools are those that despise the wisdom and instruction that comes from God's Word. It is because of their lack of knowledge and the wisdom that comes from His Word, that fools are transgressing against the laws of God, and committing their iniquities. The things they do from a lack of wisdom from God's Word brings their trouble right down on their own heads. The ways of this world are man's wisdom and those thoughts are foolishness to God, and if you follow the ways of this world, it is foolish to God. God is going to correct you if you get wrapped up in foolishness, because He loves you.

Psalms 107:18 "Their soul abhorreth all manner of meat; And they draw near unto the gates of death."

The fool's soul is the subject here, not his flesh body. And the manner of meat, is not what we eat at the dinner table. This is talking about spiritual food for the soul, and the fool hates anything that comes near to the meat that comes from God's Word. It is not palatable to them. Just the sight and sound of those words of God's instruction makes them sick. The sight of savory spiritual meat from God's Word, makes these fools sick. All they can handle is the milk of salvation and baptism, beyond that they just don't care of the rest of the Word.

The real meat of the Word tells us what happened in the Garden of Eden, where Satan had a child born to Eve, his name was Cain. They just don't want to know about it. Tell them that their rapture doctrine is a fairy tale born out of the mind of a mentally ill woman way back in 1830 and see if they care for the meat of the Word. In our generation, tell them that Satan is coming and they are to be prepared for his coming through the book of Revelation and the Old Testament, and see if they are excited about the real meat of the Word. NO THEY AREN'T. "The soul [of the fool] abhorreth all manner of the true meat [of God's holy Word].

Psalms 107:19 "Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, And He saveth them out of their distresses."

These same fools that are sick at the sight of God's real meat, are the same ones that cry unto the Lord and blame Father for all their troubles. Our Father is a loving an wonderful Father for in their cries for mercy, God gives His loving kindness and help to them. We just don't deserve His goodness, but He is there to give it to us when we cry out to him.

Psalms 107:20 "He sent His Word, and healed them, And delivered them from their destructions."

God sen His Word and that Word healed them. The word "destruction" as used in the Hebrew text is "grave". Remember the title of this chapter is "the deliverance and the healing." Going all the way back to the word "Deuteronomy"; "these are the words", the delivering and healing words. Those Word from God will deliver you from the troubles of this world age, and it will deliver you here and now. God's word is a reality, and He sent His Word to heal you mentally, physically and spiritually.

Psalms 107:21 "Oh that me would praise the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!"

This verse is a second witness to verse eight. God is there to show His goodness to those that call on Him. So why won't they praise Him? They are to busy in this world living their lives.

Psalms 107:22 "And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare His works with rejoicing."

Can you just thank him for the blessings that He has given to you? You know what they are, the beauty of the earth and the earthly things that have enriched your life: For the Word itself, and the love that He has shown to you. Rejoice in those things, for health and friends, and your family. Declare those things that God has done from us, and for those that love Him, and declare God's greatness to those around you.

Psalms 107:23 "They that go down to the sea in ships, That do business in great water;"

Those that make their living by the sea, see the greatness of our Father in the navigational signs in the heavens. However, those that have the wisdom of God, are also functioning and doing business right along side the fools of this world. Stop and think now, anyone that considers the ways of this world a guide for their life is a fool. God's Word calls them a fool. They are sea fearing people and make their living on the wide waters of this world. The "waters" in Revelation are the peoples and nations of this world age. So put this in the spiritual light, and we are in spiritual ships floating or doing business on the waters or peoples of this earth.

Psalms 107:24 "These see the works of the Lord, And His wonders in the deep."

When those huge storms and waves come against them, they are scared and it brings them very close to God. The symbol for waters in these end times are the peoples and nations of this earth. Today we are looking at a huge storm that is covering the earth, caused by the threat of terrorism, and people are running scared.

Psalms 107:25 "For He commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, Which lifteth up the waves thereof."

Our Heavenly Father is in control, and those things that are coming to pass are all in His plan. Father warned us of those things and events that shall come to pass before His return, and we are witnessing them all. Our Father is very much in control of the Spirit that is moving on the earth, and His Spirit can either protect and give you rest, or make you miserable. When Peter stepped out of the boat to walk on water, He took his eyes of Jesus Christ for just a moment, and the waves were taking Him under. When you look at the storm going on around you, you will sink.

Psalms 107:26 "They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: Their soul is melted because of trouble."

The world today is searching the heavens to see if the answers to their troubles are out there, and they find that there is no peace there. They search the depths of the sea and earth, and it isn't there either. When the storms of this earth's trouble take you to the depths of your soul, you cry out, "we parish".

Psalms 107:27 "Then reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wit's end."

Even the very best of their seamanship fails to save them, for spiritually speaking, those waves are all the troubles of this world. When you practice the very best of the human skills, can not save you from going under in the ways of this world. The only way to survive is to be on the right road; the right path is the way of our Father's Word.

Psalms 107:28 "Then they cry unto the Lord in their trouble, And He bringeth them out of their distresses."

Until you cry out to the Lord, your troubles will continue.

Psalms 107:29 "He maketh the storm a calm, So that the waves thereof are still."

If the waves of your life are in turmoil, the only One that can calm that storm is our Heavenly Father. He is there waiting for you to call out to him in repentance and asking for help. God has been with you all the time, but until you ask for His help, He will not interfere in your life. That Way, the Word of God as directed by the Holy Spirit has always been there waiting on you. The problem is that you can't see or understand the way out when you are all tied up in the ways of this world.

Psalms 107:30 "Then are they glad because they be quiet; So He bringeth them unto their desired heaven."

God will take you from those waves of trouble and bring you into a safe port. As He makes you troubles go away, don't forget to thank Him for His blessings.

Psalms 107:31 "Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men!"

This chapter goes over and over revealing the goodness of our Heavenly Father to His children. He is always faithful, and He never changes, but it is the children that get lost and lose their sense of direction.

Pslams 107:32 "Let them exalt Him also in the congregation of the people, And praise Him in the assembly of the elders."

This is what we are to do when we gather together in the congregation, "Exalt Him". So now we will turn our attention first from God's judgment, then to His blessings.

Psalms 107:33 "He turneth rivers into a wilderness, And the watersprings into dry ground;"

God can change good rich soul with its flowing rivers, into a hot desert. You may think that you have a good job and lots of income, but God can dry up those blessings and shut you off in an instant.

Psalms 107:34 "A fruitful land into barrenness, For the wickedness of them that dwell therein."

You may think that you have a crop in the field and a profitable business; but just as you plan your wickedness, God can flatten those crops with a storm, and burn out your business. God is in complete control of everything that goes on in this earth age of flesh man. You can enjoy God blessings, or you can chase after this world and have those blessings flee from you. This is why we are to thank Him when we have those blessing coming our way.

Psalms 107:35 "He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, And dry ground into watersprings."

Now we see the other side of the picture, for God can take those troubles you have and make them go away. If He is pleased with you, He can take that dry ground, and bring His life giving rain over that field and make it fruitful. He can take that rocky dry ground and make fresh spring water come out of the ground.

Psalms 107:36 "And there He maketh the hungry to dwell, That they may prepare a city for habitation;"

Psalms 107:37 "And sow the fields, and plant vineyards, Which may yield fruits of increase."

God wants to do all this for you, His child that loves and trusts Him.

Psalms 107:38 "He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; And suffereth not their cattle to decrease."

It is God's will that all be saved, and that all people are blessed: However, when we loose site of His Will for our lives, then He makes the corrections to bring us back in line.

Psalms 107:39 "Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow."

This now goes back to the judgment side, in teaching us our lesson. Some how men just can't learn by themselves, for they make the same mistakes over and over. They just can't remember to bless the Father and thank Him for those things He provides for us. Sure they want the Father to keep the blessings coming, but when the going gets real good, they their minds stray on to the things of this world.

Psalms 107:40 "He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way."

So take this verse to the level that it is intended, spiritually. The word "wilderness" as used here, is "toho" in the Hebrew text, as used in Genesis 1:2. It means "a complete ruin", just as this earth was made a complete ruin by the flood that ended that earth age that was, in all its perfection. The princes that were on high, from the world that was, that first earth age, were made to wander on this earth, and the things today are not as they were. That is what this earth age is all about. Each soul must come into this earth age at conception into the embryo; born from the womb of woman in innocence, and given the free choice to serve God or Satan. This second earth age of flesh man was without city, without form and without a way. Those princes from that high place will also go into life in flesh form also.

Psalms 107:41 "Yet setteth He the poor on high from affliction, And maketh him families like a flock."

God Himself came into this world in the flesh, born of a virgin, lived His live on earth, and then suffered affliction to pay the price for us to join His family on high.

Psalms 107:42 "The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: And all iniquity shall stop her mouth."

This time "when all iniquity shall stop her mouth" will not happen in this earth age, for it will only happen after the close of our Lord Jesus Christ kingdom of the Millennium age. It happens in the last verse of Revelation 20, when Satan and his followers go into the lake of fire, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire." Then the righteous only will rejoice and enter into the age of the new heaven and the new earth that our heavenly Father has prepared for us.

Psalms 107:43 "Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, Even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the Lord."

Whosoever is wise in the ways of Almighty God, and know the Word, will observe these things come to pass with understanding. Why will this show our Lord's loving kindness? Because God was faithful to His Word, all of it. And all the prophecies with His Word even to our final generation will come to pass exactly as they were written. Our Father is loving and He will keep all His promises to those that love Him and seek after the ways of God. This Word of God will heal you, and set you on the right path. It will give you comfort when you are down, and it will direct you in those times when you don't know which way to turn.

So the next time you get yourself into trouble, think of all those days and time that led up to your troubles. How many days went by that you didn't tell Him that you love Him? How many times did he bless you, and you just didn't say thank you. When was the last time you told the Father that you loved Him? He loves you, and He wants to hear of your love for Him.
