The Most High

“I will praise the LORD according go His righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high” (Psalm 7:17).

“Most high” is translated from one Hebrew word that means “the supreme.” In the discourse between Melchizedek (“priest of the most High God”) and Abram, this description occurs twice: “the most high God, possessor of heaven and earth” (Genesis 14:18,19). Psalm 83 is a long imprecation against the enemies of God to the end “that men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth” (83:18). Nebuchadnezzar gave testimony after dwelling “with the beasts of the field”: “I blessed the most High, and I praised and honored Him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and His kingdom is from generation to generation” (Daniel 4:32,34).

Israel “tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not His testimonies” (Psalm 78:56). “Because they rebelled against the words of God, and contemned the counsel of the most High: Therefore He brought down their heart with labor; they fell down, and there was none to help” (Psalm 107:11,12). Contrast this with, “Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling” (Psalm 91:9,10).

It is noteworthy that the New Testament records that even the demons recognize Jesus’ supremacy. “What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most High God?” (Mark 5:7). For those of us who have received God’s grace, “it is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High” (Psalm 92:1). “I will cry unto God most High; unto God that performeth all things for me” (Psalm 57:2).
