“These are the waters of Meribah, where the people of Israel quarreled with the LORD, and through them he showed himself holy.”
Meribah H4809: quarreling.
“Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain?”
Where the people of Israel quarreled with the LORD,
“He who sits in the heavens laughs; the LORD holds them in derision.”
And through them he showed himself holy.
“The LORD has made known his salvation; he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations. He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.”
“As regards the gospel, they are enemies for your sake. But as regards election, they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers. For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. For just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all. Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!”
