40 Days of Discipline

40 Days of Discipline: Day 6 – Bible Study (basic Discipline)


How did you do on your first day of Bible study?  I hope you were able to carve out at least 30 minutes without distraction to focus on your Bible Study.  Let us continue with our study of the “The Lord is my Shepherd”.  Yesterday you considered “The” and today we will look at “Lord”.  Here are your 4 questions to answer:

  1. What does the term Lord mean to you?
  2. What kind of relationship do you think the Psalmist implies by using this word?
  3. Can you determine what Hebrew word was translated to “Lord”?
  4. What kind of comfort can you take from the word Lord?

If you feel led, please share your thoughts with the group by posting a comment.

  1. Good day all.

    The word “Lord” convinces me that He is not only responsible for everything, but that He set an order to creation and is taking good care of His children.

  2. 1. To me Lord means master, someone ruling. The owner, like a land-lord.
    2. David uses the tetragrammaton at the beginning of the Psalm, I think to imply a relationship of Creator to creature, God to person.
    3. The original Hebrew word used in the English translation for Lord is the name of God, the tetragrammaton, the unutterable name of God. I found a very good source that explains this http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Names_of_G-d/YHVH/yhvh.html
    4. I find comfort knowing that the Lord is in control of everything

  3. I agree with all that both Karl and Carolina both said on the word ‘Lord” and what I had also learned is that the Hebrw letters YHVH – Yod Hei Vav Hei is also a piture of the grace of our Lord. Yod is the picture of an open hand; Hei is grace; Vav is a nail so the whole picture is : the open hand of grace, nailed in grace. is this not amazing!
