Psalm 22:23 You, who fear Yahweh, praise him! All you offspring of Jacob, glorify him, and stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!

  • You who fear. (Beginning of wisdom).
  • Jacob and Israel same person.
  • Praise, glorify and stand in awe.
  • Praise- is the legitimate response to Yahweh's self-revelation. Personal experiences of Yahweh's deliverance and favor also elicit praise (Psalm 34 ; 102:18 ; 107 ; cf. Daniel 2:20-23 ; Romans 7:25 ; the healed paralytic, Luke 5:25 ; Zechariah, Luke 1:68 ; the response at Nain, Luke 7:16 ; and Yahshua himself, Matthew 11:25).
  • Glorify - Acts of love and worship, exhorting worshipers to glorify Elohim with thanksgiving (PS. 69:30), come before him with thanksgiving (Ps.95:2), enter his gates with thanksgiving (Ps.100:4), sing to Yahweh with thanksgiving.
  • Stand in awe. - To be amazed at Yahweh's work. Creation, healing or raising of the dead.

Psalm 50:23The one who offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice glorifies me(Yahweh); to one who orders his way rightly I will show the salvation of Elohim!

  • Offers thanksgiving as his sacrifice. That is, he truly honors me; he is a true worshipper;
  • Glorifies me; here meaning, he that presents the sacrifice of praise. (To honor)(True heart felt)
  • Orders his way rightly. To him that "prepares" or "plans " his way;" that is, to him who is attentive to his going; who seeks to walk in the right path; who is anxious to go in the road that leads to a happier world; who is careful that all his conduct shall be in accordance with the rules which Yahweh has prescribed.
  • "Salvation of Elohim!" The "idea" here is that where there is a true desire to find the way of truth and salvation, Yahweh will impart needful instruction. He will not suffer such a one to wander away and be lost.

1 Corinthians 10:31 So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of Elohim.

  • Or whatsoever ye do - In all the actions and plans of life; whatever be your schemes, your desires, your doings, let all be done to the glory of Yahweh.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from Elohim? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify Elohim in your body.

  • The Holy Spirit will only dwell in non- polluted body.
  • So glorify Elohim in your body. - To devote ourselves, body, soul, and spirit, as he directs, to the glory of his name, not to the gratification of the flesh.

Luke 1:50 And his mercy is for those who fear him from generation to generation.

  • For those who fear him. - It is on those who have such fear of Elohim that his mercy descends. This is the fear of Yahweh which is the beginning of wisdom, Psalm 111:10

Psalm 145:19 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; he also hears their cry and saves them.

Ecclesiastes 12:13 The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear Elohim and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

Remember the wondrous works that he has done, his miracles and the judgments he uttered.
