Spoke 15

Psalm 59 chain Isaiah 59 chain Book 59

For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak. Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

Psalm Chapter 59 (vs. 12f)

For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity.

Isaiah Chapter 59 (vs. 3f)

Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body. Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth. Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth! And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind: But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

Bible Book 59 (James 3.3f)

Book 59, Isaiah 59, and Psalm 59 are all deeply integrated around the idea of the lying wicked tongue. James devotes twenty percent of his book to this topic, and the same theme manifests in Isaiah 59 in a way utterly distinct from the other 65 chapters of that great book. This, and many other supernatural links between Isaiah 59 and James are discussed in the article called Works Righteousness.

The integration with Psalm 59 is equally impressive. Searching the entire KJV for all verses containing the set {lying, words, speak*} within one verse of sin* yields exactly two verses. I begin with Psalm 59.12:

For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.

Psalm 59.12

The other passage is Isaiah 59:

For our transgressions are multiplied before thee, and our sins testify against us: for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; In transgressing and lying against the LORD, and departing away from our God, speaking oppression and revolt, conceiving and uttering from the heart words of falsehood.

Isaiah 59:12-13

We have the following two-dimensional KeyLink:

keyKeyLink: Speaking Sinful Lying Words
PPsalms( 59, 12 ) chain PIsaiah( 59, 12 )

This KeyLink is two-dimensional in the sense that both dimensions match perfectly (Chapter and Verse numbers are the same.) Note also that, as a review of these verses shows, the thematic correlation is much deeper than that suggested by this one KeyLink.

Th strong thematic link between Psalm 59 and James also manifests in a KeyLink. Searching the KJV for all verses containing the words cursing and mouth within one verse of "God" yields exactly two verses, Psalm 59.12 (quoted above) and James 3.9. I quote James 3.8-10 for context:

But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison. Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

James 3.8-10 (Spoke 15, Cycle 3)

We have a one dimensional KeyLink between PSalm 59 and Book 59 of the Bible, thereby displaying the integration of the order of the Psalms with that of the Christian Canon:

keyKeyLink set: {cursing, mouth, near God}
PPsalms( 59 ) chain PBible( 59 )

Truly there is no end to the wonders of our God!
