Psalms 19-21

Filed under: Old Testament — Thomas @ 16:14

Psalm 19 is very well known because of its proclamation of universal revelation (19:1-4). It also honours God’s direct revelation (v6-11) because universal revelation is not enough: “who can discern their own errors?” Psalm 20 is a call for God to respond to distress and for those in distress to trust in him. Psalm 21 is recognition that God will defeat evil, in a selective way, not in a general way such as the Great Flood. It is encouraging that it is no longer the entire human race that is evil but only select members of it (v10). Perhaps David is not as discouraged when he wrote this as he was when writing Psalms 12 and 14.
