Hello Brothers and Sisters in Christ Jesus!

Welcome to my personal website named after Psalm 16, which is one of my favorite psalms. To start, I’d like to touch on my plan for developing this blog.

My aim is to write a large number of posts about Psalm 16 while I make a steady, in depth study of it. I have wanted to do a concentrated study of it for a long time now because, of all the psalms, this Messianic psalm to me has become a vast field that needs to be neatly mowed. So, hold my bottled water and watch me go back and forth.

Better yet, in acknowledging me as your Christian sister, please feel free to join me in this open, online study. All on-point comments will be welcomed.

For now, here is Psalm 16 in its entirety, my great field of lush grass that we can walk in and enjoy soft tall blades uncut:

Psalm 16:1-11 Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust. 2 O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee; 3 But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight. 4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips. 5 The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. 6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage. 7 I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons. 8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. 9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. 10 For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. 11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Thanks be to God for giving us this wonderful psalm to consider and study. It was written by the hand of David and notably quoted from by the apostles Peter and Paul. This much preachers and commentators of old have already taught me.

But I don’t want to get ahead of my Psalm 16 study by going into details in this introductory post. So I will conclude by stating my hope that, Lord willing, only good posts worth reading will soon follow.

  1. I am currently teaching through psalm 16. It is also one of my favorites and not only am I teaching it as going through Acts but I will also be in consideration of Pauline use. God be with your studies to revelation of His preservation

    1. So glad you are teaching through Psalm 16 while you are in the Book of Acts! Please feel free to further comment on my understanding as my studies progress. Thank you!
