Psalm 99

“Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel also was among those who called upon his name. They called to the LORD, and he answered them” (v6). The psalmist saw that God’s interaction with these honored men was the way God desired to interact with all Israel, and the whole world. “The LORD is great in Zion; he is exalted over all the peoples” (v2). One day, “all the peoples” would experience the love of Israel’s God, and they would praise His awesome name (v3).

“O LORD our God, you answered them; you were a forgiving God to them” (v8). Not just Moses, Aaron, and Samuel, but all of us, through Christ, can know the forgiving God who answers us.
