 25:5   For You are Hashem, my deliverer

View of the village of Yishi

This psalm is an acrostic, describing and praising the one who fears Hashem. Together with a statement of faith, it contains a desire to know God’s ways, a plea for compassion, a confession of sins, and a request for deliverance from enemies and salvation for all Israel. In 1950, when the State of Israel was newly established and new settlements were emerging, a group of Yemenite Jews came to the lowlands near Beit Shemesh and desired to set up an agricultural settlement. They named it Yishi, meaning ‘God is my deliverer’. Today, the Yemenite community still works the land and recites the Tehillim daily, continuously hoping for the complete salvation.

  • The beginning of wisdom is the fear of God. A great wisdom indeed. The praising of God, the fear of God the acknowledging of the power and grandeur of God is a wonderful and such a strong statement of faith both personal and national. Israel wanted to know God's ways. They wanted to plead for God's compassion for there sins. Not only for there sins but for the growth of there beloved Israel. They finally had there beloved promised home and they wanted to keep it. They were afraid from there enemies and rightfully so. They were out numbered and they were ill trained and ill equipped at this time. Ultamitley the grew to know that God was and would always be there salvation. This would be there rock that would sustain them through all that was still to come. Carl

  • IN my opinion and perception , we are living in a globe that gone awry, as the psalm clearly states, show me your ways…… Shalom Angelo and Lena………
