His Covenant Forever
Hey, it’s time to play that game again. This is called “How well do you know the scriptures?” If a portion of the Bible were being quoted or perhaps it is posted somewhere in writing, could you identify it? Would you know where that scripture passage is found in the Bible?
So here are the rules. You read the scripture. You try to find it in your Bible without cheating. Cheating means using online searches, concordances, or some type of knowledge other than what is in your own brain. How well do you know the Bible? Can you find the following scripture?
The following quote is from the ESV. I like quoting from the KJV because it is the most familiar. However, there should not be any serious issues between translations. The only significant difference in the title is that the KJV renders it “His Covenant For Ever”. Big difference, I’m sure. So here it is:
Great are the works of the LORD,
studied by all who delight in them.
He has caused his wondrous works to be remembered;
the LORD is gracious and merciful.
He remembers his covenant forever.
He has shown his people the power of his works,
in giving them the inheritance of the nations.
The works of his hands are faithful and just;
all his precepts are trustworthy;
they are established forever and ever,
to be performed with faithfulness and uprightness.
He sent redemption to his people;
he has commanded his covenant forever.
Notice the eternality of His covenant. Also notice that He remembers His covenant forever, and He commands His covenant forever. A part of that covenant is giving His people the inheritance of the nations. If you study the covenants, you need to know where this passage is located in the Bible. Also notice that the LORD causes His works to be remembered, but those that delight in His works study them. That’s God’s sovereignty and man’s free will existing side by side with no conflict. If no one can guess it, after a couple of days I will post it in the comments.
