Psalm 10 The Hand of the Lord
Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the
humble. Wherefore doth the wicked contemn God? he hath said in his heart,
Thou wilt not require it. Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and
spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee;
thou art the helper of the fatherless. Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man:
seek out his wickedness till thou find none.
The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.
The name of the Tenth Letter, (Yod), derives from
(Yad, Hand), as discussed
in the Spoke 10 articles Holy Hands and
Hand of the Eternal King. This meaning manifests in the
prayer found above in the Tenth Psalm, "O God, lift up thine hand." Likewise, the Hand also
figures prominantly in Revelation 10,
Isaiah 10, and most significantly, John 10
The Lord is King for ever and ever.
Another profound correlation is found in the phrase The LORD is King for
ever and ever. Searching the entire KJV for all verses that containing
the set ("King", for ever and ever) [Verify] yields three verses:
Psalm 10:16 (quoted above), Psalm 145:1 (An Aleph verse), and this verse from
1 Timothy 1:17 (Spoke 10, Cycle 3):
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God,
be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.
This is not a KeyLink because Psalm 145 also contains the set, but it is a strong
Thematic Link (see Spoke 10 > Christ: King of Kings):
|Thematic Link: The Lord is King for ever and ever|
|PPsalms( 10 ) PBible( 103 )|
This theme is quite pronounced in 1 Timothy, where we find this great proclamation
of the King of Kings:
[The Lord Jesus Christ,] who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King
of kings, and Lord of lords; Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light
which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be
honour and power everlasting. Amen.
All this integrates with the meaning of Yod in the sense of the Power of Action, with the ascent of David
to the Throne in the Tenth Book and and with World
History and the beginning of the Holy Roman
Empire in the Tenth Century. All of this finds its origin the
Genesis 10 where we find the first occurrence of the word Kingdom in the Bible.
