Renewed Like the Eagle

” ‘So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s’ Psalm 103:5…literally, Thou wilt renew like the eagle thy youth.’  Many marvellous stories have been told respecting the eagle renewing his youth.  …he annually sheds his feathers and quills and gets a new set of them; that he attains to a greater age than any other fowl of the air; that his vision is wonderful, seeing small objects at a great distance; that his flight is majestic; that even his old age does not seem to be attended by such signs of weakness and decay as are often discovered in other creatures; and that he is the monarch of the air. …Alexander says…the whole verse may be paraphrased as follows: ‘So completely does his bounty feed thy strength that even in old age thou growest young again, and soarest like an eagle.’ ” –W. S. Plumer “Psalms” p. 915

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
