1 Chronicles 16:33-35

New International Version

33 Let the trees of the forest sing,
    let them sing for joy before the Lord,
    for he comes to judge the earth.

34 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.
35 Cry out, “Save us, God our Savior;
    gather us and deliver us from the nations,
that we may give thanks to your holy name,
    and glory in your praise.”

Forty three times in the Old Testament according to the NIV translation we are commanded and promised to praise and trust in the greatness and love of God. Surely if someone (God in this case) says something forty three times they have every intention and will to carry through on the promise. Interestingly, this construction does not appear in the New Testament. Why do you think that is?

Simply this. The proof of the text has come in the person and acts of Jesus the Messiah. If one were to gather all of the threads of prophecy from the disparate authors and experiences of the Old testament and see them come to total fruition in one person, it would be impossible to express that occurrence as gambling odds. Some time ago one gambling wag expressed it this way. It would take enough silver dollars to cover the state of Texas 1 mile deep. Statistically that would be 1/1057 or expressed as a 1 followed by 57 zeros. Hmmmm!
