Spoke 12

Trusting in the Good Lord

Psalm 34 chain Book 34 (Nahum)

O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Psalm 34:8 (Inner Cycle: Spoke 12, Cycle 2)

The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Nahum 1.7 (Bible Wheel: Spoke 12, Cycle 2)

The essence of Lamed is revealed in its grammatical function. It expresses the idea of "to" or "for" when prefixed to a word. Thus we find this KeyLink based on the goodness of the Lord "to" those who trust in Him. The great miracle of God is that these highly significant phrases form perfect links between the order of the Canon and the order of the Psalms. The highlighted words form a magnificent KJV KeyLink between Psalm 34 and Book 34 (Nahum) based on the set ("The Lord is good", trust*) [Verify] :

KeyLink: The Lord is Good to them that trust Him!
Psalm 34chainBook 34 (Nahum)

Oh! These words are so very true. Indeed the Lord is good to those who trust in Him! I pray you will trust in Him more and more each day! He is the only Hope!

Expanding the search to include either trust* or refuge (the latter being used in the other versions) and reveals the set ("the Lord is good", trust*/refuge) to be a KeyLink in six of the seven versions used for comparison in this study. The seventh (the 1901 ASV) is included when we use Jehovah in place of Lord. This link is therefore a fundamental property of Scripture - independent of translation.

This KeyLink has some interesting properties. The phrase "The Lord is good" appears seven times in the Bible. It first appears in Psalm 34 and last last appears in Book 34 (Nahum)! First and Last - the sign and seal of Almighty God. The second appearance is in Psalm 100 which is also on Spoke 12 of the Inner Cycle of the Psalms (Spoke 12, Cycle 5), and which contains a great insight into the meaning of Lamed, as discussed in that article. There is also another KJV link based on the exact phrase "them that trust in him." This phrase appears in the last verse of Psalm 34 and the first Chapter of Nahum (quoted at the head of this page):

Psalm 34.22 The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate.

Nahum 1.7: The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Now the interesting thing is that this exact phrase appears in four verses of the KJV: 2 Samuel 22.31, Psalm 34.22, Jeremiah 46.25, and Nahum 1.7. Likewise, the phrase "the Lord is good" appears in seven verses: Psalm 34.8, Psalm 100.5, Psalm 135.3, Psalm 145.9, Jeremiah 33.11, Lalmentations 3.25 and Nahum 1.7. The intersection of these two sets contains Psalm 34 and Nahum (Book 34). Using Venn Diagrams This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window, we can see that these two sets form another KeyLink - that is, the red text only appears in the intersection of these two sets:

Therefore, we have another (different!) KeyLink between Psalm 34 and Nahum:

KeyLink: The Lord is Good to them that trust Him! (2)
Psalm 34chainBook 34 (Nahum)

This is a double duplication - two KeyLinks between a pair of geometrically correlated passages of Scripture.
