經文: 詩篇 105:1-11
Worldwide Outreach Teaching School by 賴美滿校長
- 召喚讚美: 詩篇 105:1-7, 1 你們要稱謝耶和華、求告他的名、在萬民中傳揚他的作為。2 要向他唱詩歌頌、談論他一切奇妙的作為。3 要以他的聖名誇耀．尋求耶和華的人、心中應當歡喜。4 要尋求耶和華與他的能力、時常尋求他的面。5 他僕人亞伯拉罕的後裔、他所揀選雅各的子孫哪、你們要記念他奇妙的作為、和他的奇事、並他口中的判語。 6 見上節 7 他是耶和華我們的 神．全地都有他的判斷。
雖然他們周圍少數人沒有敬拜神, 但他們對其家鄉有好機會之重建社區之感恩. 如您覺得神似乎離您很遠, 要繼續尋找祂, 神賞賜那些誠心尋找祂的人(Hebrews
11:6). Jesus 耶穌應許, “你們祈求、就給你們．尋找、就尋見．叩門、就給你們開門.” (馬太福音
聖經記載神子民的歷史和他們的後裔, 回去看亞伯拉罕 (v. 6a) 他是被分別為神所優裕的選擇.
因為 “要記念他奇妙的作為、和他的奇事、)” (v.6b) 以及他是他們的 “耶和華我們的 神” (v.7a), 神執行了 “奇妙, “奇事,” and “判語” (v.5). 我們再尋找將發現慈愛的神是在等待我們. (參聖經靈修版p.1028 &P.81
of the Faith Connection)
- 論及禱告: 詩篇 105:8-11, 8 神記念祂的約、直到永遠、祂所吩咐的話、直到千代、9 就是與亞伯拉罕所立的約、向以撒所起的誓。10 祂又將這約向雅各定為律例、向以色列定為永遠的約、 11說、我必將迦南地賜給你、作你產業的分。
解經: 詩篇 105:8-11, 以色列是神用來向全人類顯示其律法的民族。他們是亞伯拉罕的子孫。神揀選了亞伯拉罕並應許說，亞伯拉罕的後裔將要居住在迦南地上
- 以色列在埃及: 詩篇
105:23-27, 23 以色列也到了埃及、雅各在含地寄居。
他的百姓、並用詭計待他的僕人。 26 祂打發祂的僕人摩西、和祂所揀選的
- 自埃及救出: 詩篇 105:42-45, 42 這都因他記念他的聖言、和他的僕人亞伯拉罕。43 他帶領百姓歡樂而出、帶領選民歡呼前往。44 他將列國的地賜給他們、他們便承受眾民勞碌得來的。45 好使他們遵他的律例、守他的律法。你們要讚美耶和華。
解經: 詩篇 105:42-45 這都是因為記念這些事情與神給亞伯拉罕的 “聖言”
(v.42a), 以及神的子民也很: “歡樂…歡呼” 之回應 (v43). 如此他們的祖先歡騰
“讚美耶和華” (v.45c). 請每天讚美神的繼續保守和祂的信實吧！
1). 召喚讚美: 詩篇 105:1-7, 詩篇105 之開始在呼喚敬拜，以紀念神所做的工作. 神的子民高聲呼喊說: 神是信實的. 2). 論及禱告: 詩篇 105:8-11, 提醒神與亞伯拉罕與、其後裔立約. 記得神在舊約說過, 祂介紹自己是亞伯拉罕、以撒和雅各的神. 這故事就是回到開始神與祂子民的關係. 3). 以色列在埃及: 詩篇 105:23-27, 但神的故事與亞伯拉罕之孩子們未完，當他們被扣留於埃及. 甚至吃苦, 神沒忘了與他們立過約也為他們行過神蹟奇事. 當時, 埃及的瘟疫種種之證據, 逾越節, 以及越過紅海逃出，經過幾代人之死亡. 重述故事使其如在當中.
自埃及救出: 詩篇 105:42-45, 這四節是個總結 – 這些事過後, 神是信實的於
祂與其百姓之立約. 當我們一齊敬拜, 我們是活出神的故事如同與我們關係
的故事, 神為了救贖世界以耶穌重述奧妙之方式. 耶穌之破身與血流就是基本

Section 8, Celebrating Where We Came From 8/30/2020
Scriptures: Psalms 105:1-11
Teaching School by Dr. Meiman Lai
God’s faithfulness in the past helps us to trust Him in the
present and the future. God’s mighty acts
in history as remembered in the psalms,
Nehemiah, and provides verse-by verse
commentary on the Scripture passage.
Last Week: We explored the value of
trusting God when experiencing times of fear.
This Week: We will explore the
importance of remembering God’s unfailing
dependability throughout all human
1 Summons to Praise: Psalms 105:1-7, 1 Give thanks to the LORD, call on his name,
make known among the nations what he has
done. 2 Sing to him, sing praise to him,
tell of all his wonderful acts. 3 Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who
seek the LORD rejoice. 4 Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always.
5 Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he
pronounced, 6 O descendants of Abraham
his servant, O sons of Jacob, his chosen
ones. 7 He is the LORD our God;
his judgments are in all the earth.
psalmist began with an injunction for God’s people to give
God praise. Although they were a minority
people surrounded by others who did
not worship God, they could be thankful for
the opportunity to rebuild their lives
and community in their homeland. If God seems
far away, persist in your search
for him, God rewards those who sincerely look
for him (Hebrews 11:6). Jesus
promised, “Seek and
you will find” (Matthew 7:7). The psalmist suggested a
valuable way to find God- become familiar with
the way he has helped his people
in the past. The Bible records the history of
God’s people, their heritage stretched
back to Abraham (v. 6a) and was marked by God’s gracious choice of
Because they were and are God’s “chosen ones”
(v.6b) and He was their “Lord”
(v.7a), God performed on their behalf “wonders,” “miracles,” and “judgments” (v.5).
In searching its pages, we will discover a
loving God who is waiting for us to find
him. (P.81 of the
Faith Connection& p1219 of N.I.V.)
- Grounds For Praise : Psalms 105:8-11,
remembers his covenant forever, the word he commanded, for a thousand
generations, 9 the covenant he made with Abraham, the oath he
swore to Isaac. 10 He confirmed it to Jacob as a decree, to Israel
as an everlasting covenant: 11 To you I will give the land of Canaan as the
portion you will inherit.
Commentary: Psalms 105:8-11, The nation Israel, the people through whom
revealed his laws to mankind, is descended
from Abraham. God chose Abraham
and promised that his descendants would live in the land of Canaan (now
Israel), and that they would be too
numerous to count (Genesis
son was Isaac; Isaac’s son was Jacob. These
three men are considered the
patriarchs or founders of Israel. God blessed them because of their faith
Hebrews 11:8-21 & p.1219 of N.I.V.)
- Israel In
23 Then Israel entered Egypt; Jacob lived as an
alien in the land of Ham. 24 The LORD made his people very fruitful; he made them too numerous for
their foes, 25 whose hearts he turned to hate his people, to
conspire against his servants. 26
He sent Moses his servant, and
Aaron, whom he had chosen. 27 They performed his miraculous signs among
them, his wonders in the land of Ham.
Commentary: Psalms 105:23-27, Did God cause the
Egyptians to hate the Israelites?
God is not the author of
evil, but the Bible writers did not always distinguish
God’s ultimate action and the intermediate steps. Thus, by God blessing
Israelites, the Egyptians came to hate them (Exodus 1:8-22). Because God
the Israelites’ blessing, He is also said to have caused the Egyptians to
hate them. God used their animosity as a means to lead the
Israelites out of Egypt.
(p.1220 of N.I.V.)
from Egypt: Psalms 105:42-45, 42 For he remembered his holy promise given to his servant Abraham. 43 He brought out his people with rejoicing, his chosen ones with
shouts of joy; 44 he gave them the lands of the nations, and
they fell heir to what others had toiled for- 45 that they might keep
his precepts and observe his laws. Praise the LORD.
Commentary: Psalms 105:42-45, By remembering these events and their
connection to God’s “holy promise” (v.42a) to Abraham, God’s people were
also reminded of the appropriate response:
“rejoicing…with shouts of Joy” (v43).
As their ancestors exulted in God’s faithful deliverance and provision,
sought to return to the land and rebuild
their lives and community.
The psalm concluded with a simple yet unambiguous
“Praise the Lord”
God praise day to day is a way of living into the ongoing,
faithfulness of God. (P.83 of the Faith Connection)
1). Summons to
Praise: Psalms 105:1-7 The first part of the psalm is a call to
through remembering all God has done. God’s people are to shout it
from the rooftops: The Lord
has been faithful.
2). Grounds For Praise: Psalms 105:8-11, Verses
8-11 tell of the first covenant God
with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Remember when the Lord speaks in the
Old Testament, He tends to
introduce himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and
Jacob. The story back to
square one of God’s relationship with God’s people.
3). Israel In Egypt: Psalms 105:23-27, God’s story with
Abraham’s children did not
end while they were in captivity
in Egypt. Even in their
remembered His covenant and interceded for
them in amazing ways. By
time, all of the original witnesses to the plagues
of Egypt, the Passover, and the
crossing of the Red Sea had been dead for generations. Retelling the
those events alive again.
4). Deliverance From Egypt: Psalms 105:42-45, Verses 42-45 are summary statements
- after all was said and done, God was faithful to the covenant He made and
with His people. When we worship together, we are living out God’s
story in such a way that it can become our story
as well, the story of God
redeeming the world in Christ is retold in a profound
way. In receiving the
elements representing the broken
body and shed blood of Christ, we participate
in a new event of God’s redemption in the present
day. One important
Bible study is to understand how God moved in the
past and worked in the lives
