Psalm 18

A hymn of praise to God for delivering David from his enemies and establishing his rule over them.

1–3 Opening praise
4–19 God’s deliverance
20–29 The basis of God’s deliverance
30–45 God’s deliverance remembered
46–50 Closing praise

  • Verses 20–24 is not religious boasting but testimony of faithfulness. Even though David was king, did he need to obey God? Why?
