David Expresses His love to Jehovah.

I will love You, O Lord, my strength. Psalm 18:1.

Love, racham; Strong’s #7355 or 2146a in Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament. This Hebrew word for love (racham) is used only here in all of the OT for a person’s love for God. It expresses an especially tender affection, a deep-rooted emotion that is similar to a mother’s love toward her nursing child.

love you Lord

David speaks from deep within on the day he was delivered from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. In 1 Samuel 22:1 the Word of God says David hid out in the cave of Adulam, (justice of the people; their testimony). David reflects upon God’s tender care and affection in the ordeal he experienced in the cave (womb) as similar to a mother’s care for the child in her womb.

    Great verse. I remember well how David had to run from Saul. I recall that David had more than one opportunity to kill the king, decided he couldn’t kill the Lord’s anointed, and ended up being king himself.

    David understood the love of God.

    Thanks for helping me understand a bit about Hebrew, Manny.

    God’s blessings…

      I have to depend on my commentaries and word studies. A brother i have known quite a while tried to get me to study with a course he took. Very time consuming. David is quite a study, knowing his story and what our Lord has said about him gives me hope.
