Daily Bible Verse - 12/11/2007 - Psalm 34:1-2

NIV I will extol the LORD at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
My soul will boast in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
KJV I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.
NASB I will bless the LORD at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul will make its boast in the LORD;
The humble will hear it and rejoice.
Psalm 34:1-2

Salvation from sin is a gift of such tremendous value that it should draw unceasing thanks from our hearts to the Giver. If we were to bless the Lord at all times, it could hardly be too much. If His praise were to be continually on our lips, we couldn't begin to exhaust the subject. No human tongue will ever be able to thank God adequately throughout all eternity.

The historical background of this acrostic psalm is related in
1 Samuel 21:10-15. It bears all the marks of the testimony of one who narrowly escaped death, just as the passage in Samuel describes. As such, it contains the praise and testimony of the one who was redeemed (vv. 1-10) and the seasoned instruction that can stem from such deliverance (vv. 11-22

Daily Bible Verse - 12/10/2007 - Proverbs 27:1

NIV Do not boast about tomorrow,
for you do not know what a day may bring forth.
KJV Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
NASB Do not boast about tomorrow,
For you do not know what a day may bring forth.
Proverbs 27:1

The uncertainty of health, circumstances, and life itself point to the truthfulness of this maxim. Nowhere is the urgency of immediate action more crucial than in the matter of one's eternal destiny (Is. 1:18; 2 Cor. 6:2; Heb. 3:7, 8). Of the future even the wisest of men are ignorant, for all time beyond this very moment is known only to God (James 4:13, 14).

18 "Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods. 19 And I'll say to myself, "You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." '

20 "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'
