Verses 1-9

Psalm 113

Psalm 113:6 Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!

Psalm 113:6Comments- In humbling himself, God went beyond just observing man. He sent His Son to die in the place of sinful man ( Philippians 2:5-8).

Philippians 2:5-8, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a Prayer of Manasseh , he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross."

Psalm 113:7 He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill;

Psalm 113:7 — — Scripture References- Note a similar verse in the prayer of Hannah:

1 Samuel 2:8, "He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the LORD"S, and he hath set the world upon them."
