Dear brethren in Christ,

 
Again silence in the moderated for a long time, and many topics related with high theological ideas are been discussed in the general forum, I would request everyone to bring forth here those type of discussions so that it might be fruitful for everyone who needs to know what are those unfamiliar verses and topics mentioned there.
 
 
Anyway  as usual I am herewith with a silly question from Psalms 76: 8
 
Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from heaven; the earth feared, and was still,
 
 
It is a song of Asaph : What was the type of judgement which was heard from heaven , Is it the rain which showered continously which caused heavy flood during Noah's period, or is it the fire which came down at Sodom & Gommorah, or is it the Incidents (plagues) to free israelites from the Egyptians, In all these cases what is this hearing mentioned about.
 
 
 
 
Yours in Christ
Sam

Dear Sam,
 
Ps. 76 is considered as a praise Pslam. The context could be in relation to what happened in 2 Kings 18 & 19 or Isa 36 & 37. Assyrian army was defeated in 701 BC and Sennachrib was killed.
 
But verses 8-12 could have some eschatological overtone. Such transition within a particular Psalm is not unusual. [Eg. Messianic or Prophetic Psalms] So verses 8-12 could very well be fulfilled in the future.

Dear brother Samuel,
 
Let me add to what brother Tom J. wrote.
 
If we consider verse 8 along with verses 1-7, then we could see that there is a reference to the redemption of Israel and their salvation from the enemy, Egypt.  That is the past, as a sahdow of the future judgment.  We see this, when we connect verse 8 with verses 9-12.
 
Verse 8 is the transition from the past to the future.  In this Psalm, we get the scriptural principle that God's actions in the past, in connection with Israel, is a shadow of things to come and is written for our edification.  This we read in the New Testament.  
Shalom malekim!!!
