Description

The Open Your Bible Commentary was written to encourage daily Bible study. Each reading is short, but don't let the brevity fool you! The content is rich with careful explanation, devotional warmth, and practical relevance. It covers the entire Bible chapter-by-chapter (sometimes section by section) providing nearly 2,000 daily readings.

What sets this commentary apart from others are the pastor-teachers who wrote it. The list of authors is like a Who's Who of evangelical scholarship: Arthur E. Cundall, H.L. Ellison, F.F. Bruce, I. Howard Marshall, Ralph P. Martin and more.

The Open Your Bible Commentary reveals the context of each chapter of the Bible, draws out the truth, and applies it to your daily life, enabling you to understand and appreciate what God is saying. It will help you to:

  • Discover the content of the Bible
  • Understand the truths of the Bible
  • Apply the message of the Bible

Features

The Open Your Bible Commentary has four great strengths:

  • Accessible it's written for the average, thoughtful Christian without assuming a great deal of background, yet it is never superficial.
  • Digestible it's written so you can read a section or two a day, working your way through an entire book of the Bible in days or weeks.
  • Dependable it's written by a respected group of scholars and trusted pastor-teachers.
  • Practical it's a rich combination of specific application and encouragement to listen to God for guidance.

THE SECURITY OF THE SAINTS

PSALM 91

What assurance can you take from this psalm?

Before reading this psalm meditate on Ro 8:28. We have to face the apparent contradiction between what God calls good and that welcomed even by regenerate people. Ps 91 is true, but it is true only to the eye of faith. The psalm is poetry of a high order, and there is nothing to be gained by attempting a literally exact interpretation at any point. The dangers described can, according to circumstances, be interpreted of purely natural dangers, of the wiles of evildoers, and in some cases of demonic agency as well. Equally the terms describing divine protection are not intended to be woven into a logical whole. Whatever the need there is God's care and shelter to be found.

There are two basic pictures. One is the man at home with God (91:1,9); not the one who asks God to protect his home, but the one who is where God has put him, and the difference is very great. The other picture is of the one who goes out on God's business (91:11). Again, this is not the one who asks God to protect his goings, but the one who walks the paths of God's choosing. The promise in 91:14-16 shows that no guarantee of unrelieved prosperity, as the human concept goes, is involved. "Deliver," "trouble," "rescue" indicate an outward appearance which seems to contradict the inner reality. The man who wrote Ro 8:28 also wrote 2 Co 11:22-12:10 and Col 1:24, but he was not conscious of contradiction. Man does not fear suffering, but apparently purposeless suffering. He does not shrink from early death, but from death that makes all his work void. It was summed up by an early Methodist preacher, "I am immortal till my work is done."

Some find parts of the psalm callous, eg 91:7-8, but they are only a statement of fact. Repeatedly there is a flood from which to rescue Noah, a Sodom where there is a Lot to be saved. We must avoid two errors as we read the psalm. We may not claim its promises for our self-chosen position and activity. Again, we may not sit in judgment on other Christians who apparently have not experienced its truth.
