When in history the LORD acts, He speaks,
Yet speaking not like pollster geeks;
As one God demotes,
Another He promotes,
With help, sometimes, from WikiLeaks!
COMMENTARY: See Psalm 75:7 (“But God is the Judge; He puts down one, and He sets up another”) & Daniel 2:21. God rules in the affairs of mankind, regardless of whether or when humans notice and/or admit it. See also Daniel 4:17 & 4:37. The word “judgments” [often as mishpateka = “Thy judgments”] appears at least 20 times in Psalm 119, a psalm that focuses on how God reveals His truth to mankind. Of course, the Holy Bible is the ultimate, most authoritative, and most perspicuous revelation of God’s truth to mankind; however, God’s providential workings in history can also reveal His will to those “with eyes to see” it — and, when God so, His Providential history-communicated truth produces moral accountability (as Daniel reminded Belshazzar, especially in Daniel 5:21-23).
