A Psalm 50 Commentary

I added a commentary on Psalm 50 to my Through the Bible project. It created a need for several other pages, so I may not get back to Through the Bible for a couple weeks.

Thank you to everyone who has prayed for my health. After achieving remission from lymphoma, my second blood cancer, by your prayers and the mercy of God, my blood counts never recovered. Since February I have been clear of cancer, but also mostly clear of a functioning immune system.

The doctors have been trying to keep me well with shots that boost the immune system, but since February I have had at least five emergency room trips with fever.

On Friday, four days ago, my neutrophil count jumped phenomenally. (Neutrophils are the main component of your white blood cells, which are your immune system.) Yesterday (Monday), they were down, but still much higher than they have been since the lymphoma. I would love to have energy and time to devote to teaching, writing, and running my warehouse business—or at least to encouraging the managers who really run it—and I am having a LITTLE hope that my immune system will come back and keep me from living too big a portion of my life in the hospital.

Again, thank you for your prayers in the past. Please offer a prayer to God as it crosses your mind.

About Paul Pavao

I am married, the father of six, and currently the grandfather of two. I run a business, live in a Christian community, teach, and I am learning to disciple others better than I have ever been able to before. I believe God has gifted me to restore proper foundations to the Christian faith. In order to ensure that I do not become a heretic, I read the early church fathers from the second and third centuries. They were around when all the churches founded by the apostles were in unity. I also try to stay honest and open. I argue and discuss these foundational doctrines with others to make sure my teaching really lines up with Scripture. I am encouraged by the fact that the several missionaries and pastors that I know well and admire as holy men love the things I teach. I hope you will be encouraged too. I am indeed tearing up old foundations created by tradition in order to re-establish the foundations found in Scripture and lived on by the churches during their 300 years of unity.
