Psalm 56

Prayer for help when attacked by enemies.

1–2 Cry for help
3–4 Trusting God when afraid
5–9 Evildoers efforts and David’s trust
10–11 Trusting God when afraid
12–13 Thanksgiving to God

  • In verses 3–4, did David get afraid? What did he do? How did he trust God?
  • Verses 8–9 are a human way of describing God’s knowledge and care of his people.
  • How did OT saints express thanksgiving to God (vv. 12)? How do you do so?
