Verse of the Day (August 31, 2020) #BMSeminary – {bow down . . . kneel} A position of humility and submission (72:9). Right worship is humble worship (2 Chr 6:13; Isa 45:23). {our Maker} A reference not to God’s creating humanity but to God’s constituting his people Israel. See 100:3. {he is our God} Affirms the covenant (118:28; Gen 17:8; Exod 6:7; 29:45-46; Lev 26:12; Deut 29:13; Rev 21:7). {people of his pasture, the flock under his care} A mixed metaphor: one expects “sheep of his pasture, the people under his care” (cf. 74:1; 79:13; Jer 23:1; Ezek 34:31). But the switch heightens the poetic imagery because the two notions are interchangeable. As his flock, God’s people receive pasture, which means that they are under his care (23:1-6; 100:3). {Today} The psalmist applies the message of Exod 17:1-7; Num 14:21-35 to each reader’s generation. [Zondervan Study Bible]
