Daily Bible Reading “Moses Stood in the Gap” (Psalm 106:13-23)

Psalm 106 23Moses Stood in the Gap

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 106:13-23. How often do we forget the works of the LORD? The Psalmist tells us the Israelites soon forgot all the works the LORD did for them, neither did they wait for His counsel. God did so much for them, but they turned their backs on Him.

In the wilderness they lusted and tempted God. He gave them what they wanted, but their souls suffered the consequences. They didn’t obey the leadership of Moses nor the counsel of Aaron, who God gave authority to lead them through the wilderness.

They saw the LORD do all kinds of wondrous works, and meet their every need, yet they rebelled. They made a molten image of a calf and worshiped it when Moses was later than they expected returning from the mountain where he’d gone to meet with God to receive His law. They forgot the LORD and all the great things He had done.

The LORD was so upset with them He wanted to destroy them. He would’ve destroyed them had Moses not begged for God’s mercy on the people. Moses stood in the gap for them to keep God from pouring His wrath out on them.

Daily Bible Reading:

Psalm 106:13-23

13 They soon forgat his works; they waited not for his counsel:

14 But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert.

15 And he gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.

16 They envied Moses also in the camp, and Aaron the saint of the LORD.

17 The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, and covered the company of Abiram.

18 And a fire was kindled in their company; the flame burned up the wicked.

19 They made a calf in Horeb, and worshipped the molten image.

20 Thus they changed their glory into the similitude of an ox that eateth grass.

21 They forgat God their saviour, which had done great things in Egypt;

22 Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and terrible things by the Red sea.

23 Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them.


Things to think about:

  • What did the Israelites do that showed they turned their backs on God?
  • How often do we forget all the good God has done for us?
  • Has anyone ever stood in the gap for you?
  • Have you ever stood in the gap for someone else?


Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 106 where the Psalmist reminds us to remember Your works and not to turn our backs on You. Thank You for the people You put in our lives to guide us along the way, as you did Moses and Aaron for the Israelites. Help us not to ever turn our back on You. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118
by Deborah H. Bateman

About the book:

The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 by Deborah H. Bateman is 29th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book contains approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.

Psalm 119 has already been published in a book called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet. The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.

The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.

The Book of Psalms: Part 4 Chapters 91-118 contains thirty-six Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
