The power of Yahweh’s word (Ps 33:8-33:9)

“Let all the earth fear Yahweh.

Let all the inhabitants of the world

Stand in awe of him!

He spoke!

And it came to be!

He commanded!

And it stood firm!”

Once again, this is classic language about the power of God’s word.   As he spoke, things were done. All the inhabitants of the earth fear Yahweh and stand in awe of him. Whatever he said, it happened. He commanded it and everything came about as he spoke.
