Psalm 59

A prayer for deliverance.

1–8 Prayer for deliverance from enemies’ attacks
9–15 Prayer for the destruction of enemies
16–17 Praise for deliverance

  • Could Israel be attacked by enemies because of their sin? Were they this time? How did that affect their response?
  • Some say the OT has an evangelistic thrust like the NT. What do you think about that in light of verse 13?
