Psalm 29 1. Our Duty
1 A Psalm of David. Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the LORD glory and strength. 2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
(a) Our Existence The difference is this; men and women have a soul.
(b) Our Example the great thing about Jesus Christ is that His whole life is one of worship. (Not Carpentry)
(c) Exhortation 2 Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name;
"Seek ye first the kingdom of God... and all these (other) things shall be added unto you" (Matthew 6, 33). Belshazzar at his feast in Daniel, chapter 5 The fingers of a mans hand, 'MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN'. 22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this;
23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified:the angel said? "The God in whose hand thy very breath is, and whose are all thy ways: hast thou not glorified."
