9 I have preached [basar] righteousness [tsedeq] in the great [rab] congregation [qahal]: lo, I have not refrained [kala'] my lips [saphah], O LORD [Yahovah], thou knowest [yada`]. KJV-Interlinear
9 I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation; behold, I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O LORD. ESV
The great congregation, refers to a vast audience beyond counting. Only God has addressed vast audiences that fit this description. And more specifically, Jesus Christ is the one who addresses audiences.
In the beginning, when angels were first created, the Lord addressed the entire realm of angels.
When the universe was created, this also was done in the presence of all the angels that had already been created.
The fall of Satan, and the angels who fell with him, and the trial that preceded thereafter, it was the Lord who addressed the great congregation of angels.
At the rapture which is our resurrection, it will be the Lord who will address the vast congregation of believers, who will be caught up in that instant.
At the second advent, at the end of the millennium, at the beginning of the new universe, at each of the respective Judgment Seat of Christ, following each resurrection, and also at the Great White Throne, wherein unbelievers will be sentenced to the Lake of Fire, all of these audiences will be addressed by Christ.
Truth and righteousness and justice will always be proclaimed. The Lord will not suppress His own words, or compromise or restrain the word of truth, at any time or at any instance, in all of history.
Truth is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and will never change.
Gods plan is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, and will never change.

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]
the word of truth [Bible doctrine].
These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever. To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
