O magnify the LORD with me and let us exalt his name together. (Psalms 34:3 KJV)
Just like an amplifier amplifies the strums of a guitar, David asks us to join him and magnify the Lord. The Hebrew translation of the word “magnify” is much more interesting than its English significance. The word isgadal which means to twist, as in a cord, to make firmer and stronger, or like wrestlers who twist their bodies together and grow stronger. David was saying let’s get together and make God more famous. Is that even possible? He is God.
David continues to say, “let us exalt and raise His name together.” There is strength in numbers. “Together” is the Hebrew word, yahad, which means union of time and place. It comes from the root word that means united or joined together.
Along with David, I ask you to join me, united.
I enCOURAGE you to be a MAGNIFYING UNIT. Let’s strum our vocal cords together and spread the fame of our Lord.
