A New Scholastic Modern Translation and Study for the Last Days
[It is always the general rule of thumb not to solely take the author’s word throughout these studies, but to pray and seek the face of Yahuah for one’s self, and let the Spirit lead you into all truth (John 16:13-15).]

Prophecy Concerning the Fall of the Millennial Reign (Revelation 20:7-10).
“And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city…” Revelation 20:9
- I cried unto YAHUAH in my sore distress, at my end; even unto ELOHIYM when sinners assailed.
- Suddenly the alarm of war was heard before me [Joel 2:1-2, Zephaniah 1:15-16]. I said,‘He will hearken unto me, for I am full of righteousness.’
- I considered in my heart, that I was full of righteousness, because I was prosperous and had become plenteous in children. [Hosea 1:10, Zechariah 8:4-8, Revelation 20:9]
- Their riches have gone forth into all the world, and their glory unto the ends of the earth. [Proverbs 13:22, Habakkuk 2:14, Ephesians 3:21]
- They were lifted up to the stars; they said, speaking without knowledge, ‘We shall never fall’. [Jeremiah 33:22]
- But they waxed haughty in their prosperity, and were not able to endure. [Ephesians 6:13]
- Their sins were in secret; and I knew it not.
- Their wickedness [transgressions] was greater than those of the heathen that were before them;
- The holy things [sanctuary] of YAHUAH they had utterly polluted.

Compiler’s Study Notes for Psalm 1:
This psalm serves as one of the utmost important keys into unlocking future Kingdom prophecy; touching upon an area all other canonical and/or sacred/apocryphal texts seem not to even shed light on! As traditional scholars categorize the Psalms of Solomon as a mere historical document — mostly based on the siege of Jerusalem in 63 B.C.; inevitably ushering in Roman reign — clearly, the text being read through its true lens (unveiling itself through the Daniel 12:4 End-Times from which we currently live) demands otherwise!:
Verses 3-5 clearly reveal the actual context of this psalm must be a future prophecy of the fall of the Millennial Reign; paving the way to help fill in the gaps we read of in Revelation 20:7-10 (for starters). Thanks to the Holy Spirit, it has been brought to attention, it’s also possible we see this prophecy reflected in Isaiah 39:5-8. Lamentations 4 also seems to touch upon this Psalm as well.
Many of the following psalms in the Psalms of Solomon continue into this revelatory insight (venturing into the biblical rabbit holes of what’s most popularly known as the Joel 2 Army; cross reference Isaiah 13 — this stuff is literally ALL OVER Scripture in types and shadows [Ecclesiastes 1:9 and 3:15]; as continual study in the Psalms of Solomon will indeed reveal.); thus proving — for those who have eyes to see — this text, as a whole, is indeed the Inspired Word of Yah (precisely following suit with the other apocryphal Solomonic writings: Wisdom, and the Odes).
Verse 6 is interesting — paralleling standard biblical doctrine — that a remnant is always saved, and/or righteously endures [Isaiah 10:20-22].
The biggest question that remains unanswered is whether Psalm 1 of the Psalms of Solomon is an actual prophecy regarding the end of Christ’s Reign, or concerning that of a future heir? Without opening up a rabbit hole, personally, my discernment tells me it could be in regards to a future heir. Clues to this not only seem to illuminate within the previously mentioned passage of Isaiah 39:5-8, but also, perhaps, within the mysterious depths of Ecclesiastes 4:13-16. These would be just mere starting points one could explore and contemplate…
As the Word is to never pass away (Matthew 24:35), the possibility of this psalm extending beyond our current-day conception into even farther prophecy (i.e. post White Throne Judgement) is also always a possibility.
Personally, I thankfully discern (via help from the Holy Spirit) — along with the other apocryphal Solomonic writings — these psalms were authored by King Solomon himself (1 Kings 4:32).
On Compiling the Translation for Psalm 1:
Referring to the above photos, we see how the Syriac (left) differs from the mainstream authoritative Greek translation (right). What is seemingly minor, not found in the Greek, can actually serve to give us more insight and discernment into Yah’s pattern of judgement (more accurately reflecting what can be discerned in standard biblical doctrine). This is most blatantly reflected within the use of, “At my end”.
What’s highlighted in verse 3 is essentially the same idea in what’s originally expressed through the Greek. It was felt that the Greek translation was stronger and more accurate to the full context of the Psalm, so none of what we see highlighted in verse 3 was used. The same principle was applied to what we see highlighted in verse 4.
Verse 6 is where it gets interest: “speaking without knowledge” is not found in the Greek, yet ends fragmented in the below Syriac. As one could tell from the photo provided of the Greek, we find what is fragmented in the Syriac actually is found in the Greek; adding a complete whole verse to the psalm! These were properly connected in our New Translation! Finally, the use of “sanctuary” was inserted into the used authoritative Greek in supplement to “the holy things of the Yahuah”.
So there we have it: For the first time ever, Psalm 1 of the Psalms of Solomon is presented in its complete known form; given a discerning account for all contextual dynamics!
