Psalm 181 (Lost Psalm of David)

[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).]

Reasoning Behind the Numerical Ordering
The numbering of these psalms of course should not be accounted as per se “official”. Following suit with the commonly known apocryphal Psalms 151-160; these psalms also plucked from the Dead Sea Scrolls, have different numbering depending on the original source you refer to (e.g. Psalms 151-155 being canonized in the Syriac, are not necessarily numbered as the same psalms when referring to the commonly accepted collective of Psalms 151-160). For the sake of simple clarity, continuing on in the Psalm 161 chronological general collective seems to be the only obvious step to move forward in, in an all-sincere attempt to rightfully divide, preserve, and freely share what is obviously Yahuah’s Inspired written Word.

Psalm 181

  1. I thank You, O Yahuah,
    for You have discerned me through Your truth;
    Your wonderous mysteries You have made known to me:
  2. Your lovingkindness to a rebellious man;
    and the greatness of Your mercies for those of a perverse heart
    — for You have granted me knowledge.
  3. Who is like unto You among the gods, O Yahuah?;
    and who is likened unto Your truth?
    — Who shall be righteous before You when he is judged?
  4. For no host(s) of a spirit can reply to Your rebuke,
    nor can any stand firm before Your wrath.
  5. But all the sons of Your truth You bring in forgiveness before You,
    cleansing them of their faults through the multitude of Your goodness;
    and to establish them before You for ever and ever.
  6. For You are an eternal Elohiym;
    and all Your ways endure for ever, without end
    — there is none other beside You.
  7. And what then is the man of emptiness and a master of vanity,
    that he should understand Your wonderous mighty works?
