  • What does David want to do in this difficult time (vv. 6–8)? Given that he can’t do that, what can you earn from this psalm about what he should do? What application can you make?
  • The idea in verse 19 is “men who never change their ways.”
  • When you face real problems and difficulties, what do you feel like doing? What should you do?
