Happy little trees
The next few psalms all seem to follow a theme: The coming of the Lord. Yet with different emphasis. Some, like this one, make it a celebration. Some like tomorrow's, a cause for fear and trembling. i don't believe they are referring to two separate comings, Jesus' incarnation and his revelation. For each mentions the same cause of the visitation: He is coming to judge the earth!
It would seem they all refer to the great Day of the Lord. The final judgment. What Job longed for. What Amos dreads. What Paul wants us not to be confused about and what John saw. So why the two reactions?
