Tehillim Thought of the Day [Psalm 75:2 and Psalm 73:28]
1st of Cheshvan, October 30, 2008  

"We give thanks to you. O G-D.  We give thanks, for Your name is near.  Men tell of Your wondrous works (Psalm 75:2)."   We thank Hashem for a multitude of gifts, for the daily blessings He showers upon us.  In this verse, the psalmist thanks Hashem whose name is close.  In Biblical poetry, Hashem’s name is often used in place of G-D Himself.  Therefore, Assaf is acknowledging and celebrating the very nearness of G-D, reiterating the closing thought of Psalm 73, "And as for me, the nearness of G-D is good (v. 28)."  Alternatively, the verse may be understood as linking two statements of thanksgiving: "We give thanks to You, and Your name is near to us."   This parallels the verse in Devarim: "For what nation is so great, that has G-D so near to them, as the Lord our G-D is in all things for which we call upon Him (4:7)."    It is because of the very closeness and accessibility of our G-D that men tell of His wondrous works.
