Bible Study Notes in Psalms- Chapter 136

Psalm 136


-Theme: Giving thanks to the LORD for His everlasting lovingkindness and power.

-Historical Insight: This is an anonymous Psalm that chronicles much of the early history of the nation with thanksgiving to God for all that He has taken them through. He remembered their low estate and brought them into inheritance for His Name’s sake (Psalm 136:21-23, Isaiah 63:12). The phrase “For His lovingkindness is everlasting” occurs at the end of every verse in this chapter.

-*Application* Through turbulent adventures the LORD carries His people with complete care and love. He is with us through the storms of life even when we don’t necessarily “feel” Him there. Remember to have faith in these times and continue to praise His holy Name. He will rescue, He will deliver, He will provide the inheritance that He promised (Ephesians 1:18, Colossians 3:23-24, 1 Peter 1:3-4). So continue to trust Him completely and fervently. He is good (Psalm 136:1). He is everlasting. He is Ruler of all. He does great wonders (Psalm 136:4). He has the skill (Psalm 136:5). He comes through in the clutch. He remembers us when we are low (Psalm 136:23). God provides (Psalm 136:25). Give Him all thanks for His lovingkindness is everlasting!


Verse to Memorize: Psalm 136:24
