Yahweh and the ancient intercessors (Ps 99:6-99:7)

“Moses and Aaron were among his priests.

Samuel also was among

Those who called on his name.

They cried to Yahweh.

He answered them.

He spoke to them in the pillar of the cloud.

They kept his decrees.

They kept the statutes that he gave them.”

We see that there are 3 main figures of the past that dominate, Moses, Aaron, and Samuel. Moses and Aaron were called priests. Samuel was more of a prophet intercessor. They cried to Yahweh who answered them in the cloud pillar. Why were these ancient ones of Moses, Aaron, and Samuel successful? They kept the decrees and statutes of Yahweh. These decrees and statutes came directly from Yahweh, so that there was very little dispute about them.

The path of Yahweh (Ps 25:8-25:10)

Tet      

“Good and upright is Yahweh.

Therefore he instructs sinners in his way.

Yod     

He leads the humble in what is right.

He teaches the humble his way.

Koph  

All the paths of Yahweh

Are steadfast love,

All the paths of Yahweh

Are faithfulness,

For those who keep his covenant

For those who keep his decrees.”

The answer is simple. Yahweh is good and upright. He instructs the sinners and the humble. He leads the humble because the paths of Yahweh are full of steadfast love and faithfulness. Those who keep his covenant and his decrees will have no problem because of Yahweh’s help.
