Good morning,

I am doing a research paper on Jehovah-Tsidkenu: His Morality and Immutability and wanted to get some insight as to the best way to search for information. I have Logos 6 and just wanted some tips from the pros!

Thanks for any help,

Clay

I would begin with topic guides on:

  • Immutability
  • Jehovah-Tsidkenu
  • Holiness of God

I would also do a ranked search for morality AND immutability, particularly in a collection of systematic theologies.

I wasn't able to find this in my library but many years ago I was introduced to a wonderful poem by Robert Murray McCheyne called "I Once Was a Stranger". Perhaps you will enjoy it too.

Does anyone know whether this poem is found in any Logos resources?

I once was a stranger to grace and to God,
I knew not my danger, and felt not my load;
Though friends spoke in rapture of Christ on the tree,
Jehovah Tsidkenu was nothing to me.

I oft read with pleasure, to sooth or engage,
Isaiah’s wild measure and John’s simple page;
But e’en when they pictured the blood sprinkled tree
Jehovah Tsidkenu seemed nothing to me.

Like tears from the daughters of Zion that roll,
I wept when the waters went over His soul;
Yet thought not that my sins had nailed to the tree
Jehovah Tsidkenu—’twas nothing to me.

When free grace awoke me, by light from on high,
Then legal fears shook me, I trembled to die;
No refuge, no safety in self could I see—
Jehovah Tsidkenu my Saviour must be.

My terrors all vanished before the sweet name;
My guilty fears banished, with boldness I came
To drink at the fountain, life giving and free—
Jehovah Tsidkenu is all things to me.

Jehovah Tsidkenu! my treasure and boast,
Jehovah Tsidkenu! I ne’er can be lost;
In thee I shall conquer by flood and by field,
My cable, my anchor, my breast-plate and shield!

Even treading the valley, the shadow of death,
This “watchword” shall rally my faltering breath;
For while from life’s fever my God sets me free,
Jehovah Tsidkenu, my death song shall be.

Thanks for the links guys. I wrote my post just before grabbing a quick shower and going to work. After I got in the shower I realized that I didn't do a full search and actually remembered where it was.

It is a wonderful poem.

Its interesting to point out that Logos seems to think M'Cheyne wrote that over 500 years before he had been born.

November 18, 1331

Unless I am remember wrong, it should be more like 1881 yes?

The other copy in Logos suggests 1834
