Jehovah Revealed In Psalms 23

In Psalm 23 we can see 7 names of the Lord God Jehovah revealed. I am sure that when David wrote this Psalm he was aware of these 7 names of Jehovah, for he was a man that faithfully sought his God; he was a man after God’s own heart. The Psalm starts out by saying; “ The Lord is my shepherd, this word shepherd is translated Raha. David is saying Jehovah is my Raha, my shepherd. This word Raha is defined; to associate with, to be a companion to, and, to be a special friend. This is a perfect picture of Jesus and His twelve disciples. He associated with them, He was their companion, and He finally called them friends. Jehovah Raha, our Shepherd, our associate, our Companion, our Friend.

The psalm reads; “ The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want, lack. This brings us to the second name of God, Jehovah Jire, translated the lord will provide. Abraham called the place where God provided the substitute ram that Abraham might spare Isaac, Jehovah Jire, as the Lord sees, He provides. David declared in Psalm 37:25 I have been young, and now I am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor their seed begging bread.

The Psalm reads; “ He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me besides quit waters. Our Shepherd is Jehovah Shalom, our peace. The quit waters is a place of peace. We find in 2 Samuel 7:1 that God gave David rest and peace from all his enemies. Jesus told His disciples in John 14:27, “ Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you. Through Jehovah Shalom we have peace with God, and the peace of God.

The Psalm reads,” He restores my soul, or He renews my life. Now Jehovah Rapha is revealed unto us, our healer. In Exodus 15:26 God says;” If you will diligent hearken to the voice of the Lord your God, and will do that which is right in His sight, and will give ear to His statures. I will not put none of these diseases upon you, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that heals you. Jesus lived and walked with the disciples for over three years and they were never sick, He was and is Jehovah Rapha our healer.

The Psalm reads,” He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake. Jehovah Tsidkeneu, the Lord our righteousness. We learn through Jeremiah 33:15,16 “ In those days, and at that time, will I cause the Branch of righteousness { Jesus Christ} to grow up to David; and He shall execute judgment and righteousness in the land. In those days shall Judah be saved, and Jerusalem shall dwell safely; and this is the name wherewith she shall be called, The Lord Our Righteousness. We are the righteousness of God, because of Christ Jesus.

The Psalm reads, “ Yea though I walk through the darkest valley I will fear no evil, for you are with me. Now we see the Lord our Shepherd as Jehovah Nissi, our banner, our victor, our protector. We learn from Moses in Exodus 17:15,16 “ and Moses built an alter, and called the name of it Jehovah Nissi, for he said because the Lord has sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation. It is God that gives us the victory. 2 Chronicles 20 15 tells us,” Be not afraid nor be dismayed by reason of this great multitude; for the battle is not yours, but God’s.

The Psalm reads, “ You anoints my head with oil. When anyone was anointed with oil they were set apart for God’s use, or sanctified, This setting apart reveals to our Shepherd as Jehovah Kawdash. We learn from 1 Peter 1:2 that we were Chosen and elected according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Holy Spirit. Every person in the body of Christ is set apart, sanctified to do something for God.
