Spoke 18

Psalms 40 chain Matthew

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O LORD, thou knowest. I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy salvation: I have not concealed thy lovingkindness and thy truth from the great congregation.

Psalm 40

The simultaneous appearance of Jesus Christ in Bible Book 40 (Gospel of Matthew), Isaiah Chapter 40, and here in Psalm 40 is one of the great thematic confluences of Scripture. It unites the Bible Wheel, the Inner Wheel of Isaiah, and the Inner Cycle of the Psalms. Yet there is more! Each of these fragments also contain the first occurrence of the Gospel in their respective sequence. The word translated as "I have preached" in the passage above is from the root pic (Basar). In the sequence of the Psalms, it first appears here in Psalm 40. Exactly the same phenomenon is found in the Book of Isaiah, where the root Basar first appears in Isaiah 40.9:

O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!

In both cases, the Septuagint translated the Hebrew pic (Basar, Good Tidings) using the Greek root pic (Evangelidzo, To Preach the Gospel) whence we get the word evangelize! Oh the Glory of God's Truth! The correlation between the appearance of the Gospel in Isaiah and the Psalms is mathematically exact - a two dimensional link involving both the Chapter and Verse numbers:

First Occurrence: THE GOSPEL
Isaiah 40.9chainPsalm 40.9

Of course, these two links integrate with the Gospel of Matthew, the first Gospel! Thus, we have a threefold link connecting the Bible Wheel, the Inner Wheel of Isaiah, and the Inner Cycle of the Psalms - all based on the fundamental message of the entire Bible, the GOSPEL OF OUR SALVATION!

First Occurrence: THE GOSPEL
Book 40 Isaiah 40 Psalm 40

Ohhhhh the endless glory! The infinite intelligence of Almighty God! The Lord our God is here, mighty to save! Indeed, Jesus Christ the Righteous is here to save!

Yet there is so much more! If only the Lord would give me ten thousand lives to declare His Glory. I could write a book on just this Psalm and its integration with the rest of Scripture. What did Jesus Christ preach when He walked upon this earth? As it is written in the verse above "I have preached righteousness." He then repeats this, saying "I have not hid thy righteousness within my heart." This links to the fundamental Tsaddi KeyWord pic (Tsaddek, Righteousness), as discussed at length in the introduction to Spoke 18.
