Psalm 71: Forsake Me Not When My Strength is Spent

Psalm 71 is a psalm of praise for everything God has done for the psalmist while also being a request for His continued support. It swings between the idea that God has always been there for him and that he needs the continued supports a few times and is almost pleading in the feel. Also,... Continue Reading →

Psalm 70: O Lord, Do Not Delay

Psalm 70 is yet another psalm of David, this one listed as a memorial offering. I went back to find what that meant, and it is a part of the offering left for God to remember the psalmist in a good way. I think that means it should be said along with giving a memorial... Continue Reading →

Psalm 69: Save Me, O God

Psalm 69 is a beautiful lament where the author asks God to save them. As I read it, I thought of a person who was in over their heads in life and judged for it by their contemporaries, someone who is trying to make up for past transgressions but failing at it and turning to... Continue Reading →

Psalm 68: God Shall Scatter His Enemies

This month we're back to the Psalms. In case you weren't around for it, I had decided a few years ago to work through the psalms every April. There are 150 of them and that's a lot all in a row. We've gotten through 67 of them so far and it's been slow going on... Continue Reading →

A Song.1Praise is due to you,a O God, in Zion,and to you shall vows be performed.2O you who hear prayer,to you shall all flesh come.3When iniquities prevail against me,you atone for our transgressions.4Blessed is the one you choose and bring near,to dwell in your courts!We shall be satisfied with...

Psalm 64: Hide Me from the Wicked

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David.1Hear my voice, O God, in my complaint;preserve my life from dread of the enemy.2Hide me from the secret plots of the wicked,from the throng of evildoers,3who whet their tongues like swords,who aim bitter words like arrows,4shooting from ambush at the blameless,shooting at him suddenly and without fear.5They hold...

Psalm 63: My Soul Thirsts For You

I did the Psalms a little different last year but didn't like it quite as much, so I'm returning to the original format. 1O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;my soul thirsts for you;my flesh faints for you,as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.2So I have looked...

Psalm 58-62

  God Who Judges the Earth Psalm 58 is a little crazy. It reads like it was written by someone very cynical at the time and not in any way thinking of God and righteousness, even though those words are used. In the first verse there is a reference to "gods" which my study says is... Continue Reading →
