The Lord’s Holy Habitation and Dwelling Place: Publicly Praise His Presence! — Psalm 26 #2

Psalm 26 NLT

A psalm of David.

Declare me innocent, O Lord,
    for I have acted with integrity;
    I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.
Put me on trial, Lord, and cross-examine me.
    Test my motives and my heart.
For I am always aware of your unfailing love,
    and I have lived according to your truth.
I do not spend time with liars
    or go along with hypocrites.
I hate the gatherings of those who do evil,
    and I refuse to join in with the wicked.

I wash my hands to declare my innocence.
    I come to your altar, O Lord,
singing a song of thanksgiving
    and telling of all your wonders.
I love your sanctuary, Lord,
    the place where your glorious presence dwells.

Psalm 26:6-8

Don’t let me suffer the fate of sinners.

    Don’t condemn me along with murderers.

10 Their hands are dirty with evil schemes,

    and they constantly take bribes.

11 But I am not like that; I live with integrity.

    So redeem me and show me mercy.

12 Now I stand on solid ground,

    and I will publicly praise the Lord.

Lord, Look! See Our Savior, Gift of Spiritual Sight — Matthew 20, Zechariah 9, Isaiah 62

Jesus, Touch the Apples and Heal Our Eyes! – Zechariah 2:8

    ‘Look, your King is coming to you.

He is humble, riding on a donkey—

    riding on a donkey’s colt.’”[b]

Matthew 21:5

Matthew 20:29-21:22 NLT

Jesus Heals Two Blind Men

29 As Jesus and the disciples left the town of Jericho, a large crowd followed behind. 30 Two blind men were sitting beside the road. When they heard that Jesus was coming that way, they began shouting, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

31 “Be quiet!” the crowd yelled at them.

But they only shouted louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

32 When Jesus heard them, he stopped and called, “What do you want me to do for you?”

33 “Lord,” they said, “we want to see!”

34 Jesus felt sorry for them and touched their eyes. Instantly they could see! Then they followed him.

Matthew 21:33-34
The Coming of Zion’s King

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!
    Shout, Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
    righteous and victorious,
lowly and riding on a donkey,
    on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

— Zechariah 9:9
Zion’s New Name

11 The Lord has made proclamation
    to the ends of the earth:
“Say to Daughter Zion,
    ‘See, your Savior comes!
See, his reward is with him,
    and his recompense accompanies him.’”

Isaiah 62:11  NIV
