A voice to be taken serious

David remembered how the Almighty God had spoken His words to all with a great voice and how those Words were written down to be remembered and taken at heart.

22 “These Words יהוה {Jehovah} spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, of the cloud, and of the thick darkness, with a loud voice, and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me. 23 “And it came to be, when you heard the voice from the midst of the darkness, while the mountain was burning with fire, that you came near to me, all the heads of your tribes and your elders, 24 and said, ‘See, יהוה {Jehovah} our Elohim has shown us His esteem and His greatness, and we have heard His voice from the midst of the fire. Today we have seen that Elohim speaks with man – and he lives! 25 ‘And now why should we die? For this great fire is consuming us. If we hear the voice of יהוה {Jehovah} our Elohim any more, then we shall die. 26 ‘For who is there of all flesh who has heard the voice of the living Elohim speaking from the midst of the fire, as we have, and does live? 27 ‘You go near and hear all that יהוה {Jehovah} our Elohim says, and speak to us all that יהוה {Jehovah} our Elohim says to you, and we shall hear and do it.’ 28 “And יהוה {Jehovah} heard the voice of your words when you spoke to me, and יהוה {Jehovah} said to me, ‘I have heard the voice of the words of this people which they have spoken to you. They have done well in all that they have spoken. 29 ‘Oh, that they had such a heart in them, to fear Me and to guard all My commands always, so that it might be well with them and with their children forever! (Deuteronomy 5:22-29 The Scriptures 1998+)

Jehovah is a living God who speaks and hears and is willing to be with those who are willing to listen to His Voice. But He wants that we walk after Jehovah our God, fear Him, and keep His commandments, and obey His voice, and that we shall serve Him and hold fast to Him.

“Walk after יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim and fear Him, and guard His commands and obey His voice, and serve Him and cling to Him. (Deuteronomy 13:4 The Scriptures 1998+)

“After Jehovah YOUR God YOU should walk, and him YOU should fear, and his commandments YOU should keep, and to his voice YOU should listen, and him YOU should serve, and to him YOU should cling.” (Deuteronomy 13:4 NWT)

And when we cry to Jehovah, the God of our fathers, like in previous times, Jehovah will hear our voice and look on our afflictions and our labour and our oppression, and we also should set out blessings before Jehovah our God, and worship before Jehovah our God, and we shall rejoice in all the good which Jehovah our god has given to us, and to our family. (Deuteronomy 26:7, 10-11) That we may listen to the voice of Jehovah our God, and do according to all that He has commanded us. (Deuteronomy 26:14)

16 “Today יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim is commanding you to do these laws and right-rulings. And you shall guard and do them with all your heart and with all your being. 17 “You have today caused יהוה {Jehovah} to proclaim to be your Elohim, and to walk in His ways and guard His laws, and His commands, and His right-rulings, and to obey His voice. 18 “And יהוה {Jehovah} has caused you to proclaim today to be His people, a treasured possession, as He has spoken to you, and to guard all His commands, 19 so as to set you high above all nations which He has made, for a praise, and for a name, and for esteem, and for you to be a set-apart people to יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim, as He has spoken.” (Deuteronomy 26:16-19 The Scriptures 1998+)

A Blessing Voice

“1 “And it shall be, if you diligently obey the voice of יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim, to guard to do all His commands which I command you today, that יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim shall set you high above all nations of the earth. 2 “And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, if you obey the voice of יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim:
3 “Blessed are you in the city, and blessed are you in the field. 4 “Blessed is the fruit of your body, and the fruit of your ground and the fruit of your livestock – the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. 5 “Blessed is your basket and your kneading bowl. 6 “Blessed are you when you come in, and blessed are you when you go out. 7 “יהוה {Jehovah} causes your enemies who rise against you to be smitten before your face – they come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways. 8 “יהוה {Jehovah} commands the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and shall bless you in the land which יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim is giving you. 9 “יהוה {Jehovah} does establish you as a set-apart people to Himself, as He has sworn to you, if you guard the commands of יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim and walk in His ways. 10 “And all peoples of the earth shall see that the Name of יהוה {Jehovah} is called upon you, and they shall be afraid of you. 11 “And יהוה {Jehovah} shall make you to have plenty of what is good, in the fruit of your body, in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground, in the land of which יהוה {Jehovah} swore to your fathers to give you. 12 “יהוה {Jehovah} opens to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. And you shall lend to many nations, but you do not borrow. 13 “And יהוה {Jehovah} shall make you the head and not the tail. And you shall be only on top, and not be beneath, if you obey the commands of יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim, which I command you today, to guard and do. 14 “And do not turn aside from any of the Words which I am commanding you today, right or left, to go after other mighty ones to serve them.  (Deuteronomy 28:1-14 The Scriptures 1998+)

8 “And you shall turn back and obey the voice of יהוה {Jehovah} and do all His commands which I command you today. 9 “And יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim shall make you have excess in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, and in the fruit of your livestock, and in the fruit of your ground for good. For יהוה {Jehovah} turns back to rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers, 10 if you obey the voice of יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim, to guard His commands and His laws which are written in this Book of the Torah, if you turn back to יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim with all your heart and with all your being. 11 “For this command which I am commanding you today, it is not too hard for you, nor is it far off. (Deuteronomy 30:8-11 The Scriptures 1998+)

19 “I have called the heavens and the earth as witnesses today against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Therefore you shall choose life, so that you live, both you and your seed, 20 to love יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim, to obey His voice, and to cling to Him – for He is your life and the length of your days – to dwell in the land which יהוה {Jehovah} swore to your fathers, to Ab’raham, to Yitsḥaq, and to Ya’aqob, to give them.” (Deuteronomy 30:19-20 The Scriptures 1998+)

14 “If you fear יהוה {Jehovah}, and shall serve Him and obey His voice, and not rebel against the command of יהוה  {Jehovah}, then both you and the sovereign who reigns over you shall follow יהוה {Jehovah} your Elohim. 15  “But if you do not obey the voice of יהוה {Jehovah}, and shall rebel against the command of יהוה {Jehovah}, then the hand of יהוה {Jehovah} shall be against you, as it was against your fathers.  (1 Samuel 12:14-15 The Scriptures 1998+)

We should know by now that Jehovah does not so much need offerings and sacrifices but prefers that the people obey His Voice. To listen is better than the fat of rams or any offering. (1 Samuel 15:22; 1 Kings 20:36; 2 Kings 18:12)

As David cried to Jehovah with his voice, and He heard him out of His holy hill (Psalms 3:4), so shall Jehovah hear us when we direct our prayer to the Most High and Only One God.

In my distress I called upon יהוה {Jehovah}, And to my Elohim I cried; He heard my voice from His Hĕk’al {Temple}, And my cry went before Him, into His ears. (Psalms 18:6 The Scriptures 1998+)

And יהוה {Jehovah} repays me according to my righteousness, According to the cleanness of my hands before His eyes. (Psalms 18:24 The Scriptures 1998+)

יהוה  {Jehovah} is The Ěl – His way is perfect and His Word is tried, tested by many, He shields all who take refuge in Him.

27 For You save the afflicted people, But bring down those whose eyes are haughty. 28 For You Yourself light my lamp; יהוה {Jehovah} my Elohim makes my darkness light. 29 For with You I run against a band, And with my Elohim I leap over a wall. 30 The Ěl – His way is perfect; The Word of יהוה {Jehovah} is proven {1}; He is a shield to all who take refuge in Him. {Footnote: 1Ps. 12:6, Ps. 119:140, Prov. 30:5.} 31 For who is Eloah, besides יהוה {Jehovah}? And who is a rock, except our Elohim? 32 It is Ěl who girds me with strength, And makes my way perfect, (Psalms 18:27-32 The Scriptures 1998+)

    Psalm 91 is an extraordinary psalm. It is the promise that God will protect you from sickness and danger, no matter how many people standing right next to you fall. It is the promise that He will answer when you call. It is the promise of long life and salvation.
