Verse of the Day (August 21, 2020)

Verse of the Day (August 21, 2020) #BMSeminary – {the LORD directs his love . . . his song is with me} This verse breaks up the pattern of the three stanzas (vv. 1-5,6-11; 43:1-5), the first and third of which have five verses apiece. It stands at the center of the second stanza-indeed, at the exact structural center of the psalm (cf. 100:3 [“his people”])-and it expresses confidence in the Lord, the only place outside of the refrains where there is any such expression and the only place in the psalm where God’s personal name Yahweh (“the LORD”) occurs (cf. 8:1). {with me} The central words, accentuating the relationship the psalmist has with his God. [Zondervan Study Bible]
