Psalms 28-30

Filed under: Old Testament — Thomas @ 18:02

Psalm 28 seems to have three parts. David begins with a call for help before turning to the fate of the wicked. Then in verse six he changes to praising the Lord for hearing his cry and responding and caring for him and his people. Psalm 29 is a praise song declaring the majesty and power of the Lord. The name YHWH appears 18 times in the eleven verses. Psalm 30 was written as a song to be used at the dedication of the temple (or palace). The note about it being for the palace seems more appropriate to the content of the psalm which is very personal and speaks from David’s perspective.
