Vile Things – Psalms 101:3

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Psalms 101:3
I will set before my eyes no vile thing. The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.

The Hebrew word for “vile” here has several definitions and can be interpreted as wicked, worthless, or even good for nothing. The bottom line is that David, the man after God’s heart, did not want to set anything before him that was displeasing to YHWH.

Examine what you watch. Is there anything you put before you that is displeasing to YHWH? Would that not be equal to setting something that is vile before us? Trust me when I say that I know it’s not always easy. But if YHWH will forbid something in the scriptures, what makes us believe it will be OK to watch it in the form of entertainment?

Recently my family and I began re-examining different things in our life and we did a major clean out. Have you ever done that before? Take the scriptures in one hand and put your entertainment in the other. Start examining things to the scriptures. Remember, it’s the scriptures that we will be judged by.

The rest of our verse says “The deeds of faithless men I hate; they will not cling to me.” When many hear this verse and subject brought up, they are quick to defend their actions through various rational. All the while not realizing the deeds of Faithless men could be clinging to them.

So, where do you stand on the subject?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.

Here's something interesting to consider:
