Epistles of Thomas

Psalms 22-24

Filed under: Old Testament — Thomas @ 15:27

Psalm 22 begins with a recounting of God’s goodness to Israel and then departs from that historical high point to David’s current anguish. His enemies surround him and (v18) “They divide my clothes among them and cast lots for my garment” which is reminiscent of Jesus’ experience (Mt 27:35; Mk 15:24; Lk 23:34; Jn 19:24). The following Psalm is probably the most famous of them all, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want….” I remember on my internship in Swift Current that Pastor Ken liked to read this psalm to all the patients we visited in the hospital. It is certainly an encouraging poem for those undergoing suffering or need. Psalm 24 is a praise song to the King of Glory who is the Lord Almighty.
