rescue, rule, retribution

Psalm 66:5-7 (JDV)

Psalm 66:5 Come and see the wonders of God; his achievements for humanity are awe-inspiring.
Psalm 66:6 He turned the sea into dry land, and they crossed the river on foot. There we celebrated because of him.
Psalm 66:7 He rules forever by his might; he keeps his eye on the nations. The rebellious should not exalt themselves. Selah.

rescue, rule, retribution

The nations are invited to come and see the wonders performed by Israel’s mighty God. The three listed here are:

  1. wonders of rescue, resulting in the celebration of his people for their deliverance.
  2. wonders of his rule, where he constantly watches the nations to protect his people.
  3. wonders of his retribution, where he acts to punish those who rebel against his will.

The only example the psalmist gives is the parting of the Red Sea. That incident serves as an example of each of these wonders.

Lord, thank you for your acts of deliverance, your sovereign rule, and the justice which you are bringing about.
