Psalm 22:22 I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters; I will praise you in the assembly.
Psalm 22:23 You who fear Yahveh, praise him! All you descendants of Jacob, honor him! All you descendants of Israel, revere him!
Psalm 22:24 Because he has not despised or abhorred the torment of the oppressed. He did not hide his face from him but listened when he cried to him for help.
Psalm 22:25 I will give praise in the great assembly because of you; I will fulfill my vows before those who fear you.
in the great assembly
David’s prayers for rescue have been heard. He had felt abandoned at the beginning of the psalm, but now he knows that was not true. God did not hide his face, but was listening when he cried for help. Since God did not hide his face, David promises not to hide his. He plans to enter the great assembly, and give evidence of God’s faithfulness by public worship.
Lord, you have been faithful to us. We commit to showing our faithfulness to you, in consistent regular worship.
