Psalm 85: 1-5: “Bow down Your ear, O LORD, hear me, for I am poor and needy. Preserve my life, for I am holy; You are my God; save Your servant who trusts in You! Be merciful to me, O Lord, for I cry to You all day long. Rejoice the soul of Your servant, for to You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon you.” David uses a dramatic phrase that captures the grandeur of God on high and David’s humble position on the earth below. Being “holy” speaks of the faithfulness and godliness of a righteous person who, by God’s grace, is living in accordance with God’s law. God rejoices in those who serve Him,and His servants find their joy in Him.
