Psalm 136 Observations
Psalm 136:18, 20 says that YAHUAH slew Og. Yet Numbers 21:34-35 says that the people of Israel “smote” him. I see no contradiction here. We can do nothing (including subduing opposition — not flesh and blood) apart from YAH. We read in Numbers 21:34 that YAHUAH told Moses not to fear Og. Then He said I have delivered him into Israel’s hand.
Three things here: (1) YAHUAH does the deliverance. (2) Israel had to physically be available so that YAHUAH could work with and through them. (3) Fear and doubt could not be present. The first words that YAH spoke to Moses was “fear not.”
I invite you to comment below with additional observations from your reading.
Please, please comment below if you see ANYTHING that is contrary to Scripture that I have presented in these Scripture Observations. I want Truth and when I see that I have made a mistake, I want to correct that. No chips on my shoulders here.
I also ask one thing, though. Please, please present your thoughts in the context of two or three Scripture references, not just one (see Deuteronomy 17:6; Matthew 18:16; 2 Corinthians 13:1). One verse (especially one verse out of context) will not be received as evidence. I am just not one to interpret Scripture or accept other’s interpretation of Scripture apart from the written Word of YAH found in the whole counsel of His written Word.
I try my best to limit the use of the precursor words of “I think” or “I believe” without Scripture to back up my “I thinks” and “I believes.” Not only on this site, but be on the lookout anywhere else for excessive “I think” and “I believe” statements presented as Truth, with no Scriptural evidence to back up the statements.
The written Word of YAHUAH is the standard, the vanguard against deception which as you know is quite rampant these days.
