A Comparison Worth Studying!

July 12, 2018

While reading the Psalms tonight, I discovered a comparison that is worth studying: 1 Chronicles 16:8-22 and Psalm 105:1-15 are very similar in wording, but they are not exactly the same! The potential ramifications of this comparison are something that I look forward to studying for some time to come!

8 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people.

 

9 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him, talk ye of all his wondrous works.

 

10 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

 

11 Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.

 

12 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done, his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

 

13 O ye seed of Israel his servant, ye children of Jacob, his chosen ones.

 

14 He is the LORD our God; his judgments are in all the earth.

 

15 Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which he commanded to a thousand generations;

 

16 Even of the covenant which he made with Abraham, and of his oath unto Isaac;

 

17 And hath confirmed the same to Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant,

 

18 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance;

 

19 When ye were but few, even a few, and strangers in it.

 

20 And when they went from nation to nation, and from one kingdom to another people;

 

21 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes,

 

22 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.

 

 

Psa 105:1 O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.

 

2 Sing unto him, sing psalms unto him: talk ye of all his wondrous works.

 

3 Glory ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.

 

4 Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore.

 

5 Remember his marvellous works that he hath done; his wonders, and the judgments of his mouth;

 

6 O ye seed of Abraham his servant, ye children of Jacob his chosen.

 

7 He is the LORD our God: his judgments are in all the earth.

 

8 He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word which he commanded to a thousand generations.

 

9 Which covenant he made with Abraham, and his oath unto Isaac;

 

10 And confirmed the same unto Jacob for a law, and to Israel for an everlasting covenant:

 

11 Saying, Unto thee will I give the land of Canaan, the lot of your inheritance:

 

12 When they were but a few men in number; yea, very few, and strangers in it.

 

13 When they went from one nation to another, from one kingdom to another people;

 

14 He suffered no man to do them wrong: yea, he reproved kings for their sakes;

 

15 Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm.
