During The Consider Podcast, Selah Moments are taken so that the listener, and the hosts, can consider the glory of God’s Living Truth.
Selah means to pause, meditate, and consider.
- The Lord is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands. Selah (Psalm 9:16)
That all should stop, pause, and consider Psalm 9:16 is the understatement of the day.
This particular Selah Moment is based upon Psalm 148.
Praise the Lord . Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise him in the heights above. Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his heavenly hosts. Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars. Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the Lord , for he commanded and they were created. He set them in place for ever and ever; he gave a decree that will never pass away. Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths, lightning and hail, snow and clouds, stormy winds that do his bidding, you mountains and all hills, fruit trees and all cedars, wild animals and all cattle, small creatures and flying birds, kings of the earth and all nations, you princes and all rulers on earth, young men and maidens, old men and children. Let them praise the name of the Lord, for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens. He has raised up for his people a horn, the praise of all his saints, of Israel, the people close to his heart. Praise the Lord . (Psalm 148:1-14)
Selah is a word found in the Hebrew Bible, specifically in the Book of Psalms. It appears at the end of a number of verses, and its meaning is not entirely clear. Some scholars believe that it may be a musical term, indicating a pause or break in the singing or chanting of the Psalm. Others believe that it may be a word that is used to mark a change in the structure or theme of the Psalm, or to indicate a moment of contemplation or reflection.
There are a number of theories about the meaning of Selah, but the most commonly accepted interpretation is that it is a musical or liturgical term that is used to mark a pause or break in the Psalm. Some scholars believe that it may have originally been a vocalization that was used to mark the end of a verse or section, or to indicate a change in the melody or rhythm of the Psalm. Others believe that it may be a word that is used to encourage contemplation or reflection on the words of the Psalm.
It is worth noting that the word Selah appears only in the Book of Psalms and is not found in any other part of the Hebrew Bible. It is also not found in any of the other ancient Near Eastern literature that has been preserved, so its precise meaning and origin remain somewhat mysterious.
The use of Selah in the Psalms is somewhat irregular, and it does not always appear in a consistent manner. Some Psalms have several instances of Selah, while others have none.
Regardless of its precise meaning and origin, Selah has long been an important and mysterious part of the Psalms, and it continues to be a subject of study and debate among scholars and Biblical interpreters. (of course).
