Psalm 37 Message and Prayer for Israel

Psalm 37: A powerful message of hope and guidance for Israel and those people seeking to navigate life

The title of this podcast is Psalm 37 Message and Prayer for Israel. Hello and welcome to our podcast. My name is Elder Joe, and I am your host. Elder Dan will be out and away for a while, as he’s currently doing missionary work at this time.

Today, I’ll explore the message of Psalm 37 in the Bible. As you’re probably aware, the holy land of Israel is currently under attack by its enemies. I especially dedicate this podcast to the Jewish people in Israel.

What’s written in Psalm 37, you might ask? Well, this incredible text contains messages of hope, comfort, and guidance for those who are struggling with adversity and facing challenges in their daily lives.

Psalm 37 is a psalm of King David (was a man after Yahweh’s own heart, according to the Bible (1 Samuel 13:14; Acts 13:22). It reads:

“Do not fret because of evildoers,
Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity.
For they shall soon be cut down like the grass,
And wither as the green herb.

Trust in Yahweh, and do good;
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in Yahweh,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to Yahweh,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.

Rest in Yahweh, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm.

For evildoers shall be cut off;
But those who wait on Yahweh,
They shall inherit the earth.
For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more;
Indeed, you will look carefully for his place,
But it shall be no more.
But the meek shall inherit the earth,
And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

The wicked plots against the just,
And gnashes at him with his teeth.
Yahweh laughs at him,
For He sees that his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn the sword
And have bent their bow,
To cast down the poor and needy,
To slay those who are of upright conduct.
Their sword shall enter their own heart,
And their bows shall be broken.

A little that a righteous man has
Is better than the riches of many wicked.
For the arms of the wicked shall be broken,
But Yahweh upholds the righteous.

Yahweh knows the days of the upright,
And their inheritance shall be forever.
They shall not be ashamed in the evil time,
And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
But the wicked shall perish;
And the enemies of Yahweh,
Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish.
Into smoke they shall vanish away.

The wicked borrows and does not repay,
But the righteous shows mercy and gives.
For those blessed by Him shall inherit the earth,
But those cursed by Him shall be cut off.

The steps of a good man are ordered by Yahweh,
And He delights in his way.
Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down;
For Yahweh upholds him with His hand.

I have been young, and now am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,
Nor his descendants begging bread.
He is ever merciful, and lends;
And his descendants are blessed.

Depart from evil, and do good;
And dwell forevermore.
For Yahweh loves justice,
And does not forsake His saints;
They are preserved forever,
But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off.
The righteous shall inherit the land,
And dwell in it forever.

The mouth of the righteous speaks wisdom,
And his tongue talks of justice.
The law of his Elohim is in his heart;
None of his steps shall slide.

The wicked watches the righteous,
And seeks to slay him.
Yahweh will not leave him in his hand,
Nor condemn him when he is judged.

Wait on Yahweh,
And keep His way,
And He shall exalt you to inherit the land;
When the wicked are cut off, you shall see it.
I have seen the wicked in great power,
And spreading himself like a native green tree.
Yet he passed away, and behold, he was no more;
Indeed I sought him, but he could not be found.

Mark the blameless man, and observe the upright;
For the future of that man is peace.
But the transgressors shall be destroyed together;
The future of the wicked shall be cut off.

But the salvation of the righteous is from Yahweh;
He is their strength in the time of trouble.
And Yahweh shall help them and deliver them;
He shall deliver them from the wicked,
And save them,
Because they trust in Him.”

So now let me explain the highlights of Psalm 37 to you. The first message that we can take from Psalm 37 is to trust in the Yahweh. The psalmist assures us that if we trust in Yahweh and do good, He will grant us the desires of our heart. This is a powerful message of hope for those who may be feeling lost or uncertain about the future. By placing our trust in Yahweh, we can find the path to success and fulfillment.

Another important message of Psalm 37 is to be patient and wait on Yahweh. The psalmist tells us that the wicked may prosper for a time, but they will ultimately be brought low while the righteous will be exalted. This is a reminder to remain steadfast in times of trial and tribulation, knowing that Yahweh’s justice will ultimately prevail

The psalm also encourages us to refrain from anger and to avoid envy. As we read in verses 8 and 9, “Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret–it leads only to evil. For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in Yahweh will inherit the land.”

Envy can also be a harmful emotion, as it often leads to bitterness and resentment. The psalmist reminds us that we should not covet what others have, but rather focus on our own blessings and opportunities.

Finally, we are reminded in Psalm 37 to be kind and generous to others. The psalmist tells us that the righteous person “is always generous and lends freely; his children will be blessed.” This means that by cultivating a spirit of generosity and compassion, we can not only help others but also enrich our own lives.

Overall, I’d say that Psalm 37 offers a powerful message of hope and guidance for Israel and for all those seeking to navigate the challenges of life. By trusting in our Father in heaven, Yahweh, being patient and steadfast, avoiding anger and envy, and being kind and generous to others, we can find the path to success and fulfillment.

I hope this Psalm 37 message and prayer for Israel will be beneficial to you or to someone you know who’s affected by the war in the holy land.

I’m am saddened by what is going on in Israel but more so about what the college students are doing in the US with their protests against Israel. My prayer is that Israel stays strong and makes it through without more blood shed.

I think of the words of the Jewish sage Hillel (110 BCE-10 CE) : “What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man. That is the whole of the Torah.” May all the children be safe and protected from harm.
