The greatness of Yahweh (Ps 86:8-86:11)

“There is none like you among the gods!

Yahweh!

There are not any works like yours!

All the nations that you have made shall come.

They shall bow down before you!

Yahweh!

They shall glorify your name!

You are great!

You do wondrous things!

You alone are God!

Teach me your way!

Yahweh!

Thus I may walk in your truth.

Give me an undivided heart.

Thus I may revere your name!”

David continued his prayer by saying that Yahweh was like no other god. There was nothing like his works. All the nations that Yahweh has made should come and bow down before him. They should glorify his name for all the great deeds that he has done. Yahweh alone was God. This was a strong monotheistic idea that Yahweh was the one true God, while there were other false gods. David wanted to be taught in the ways of God. He wanted to walk in truth with an undivided heart. He wanted to revere the name of Yahweh.
