Remembering and praying for God’s mercies despite Israel’s rebellion.
1–5 Praise and prayer
6–46 Israel’s rebellion
47–48 Prayer and praise
- As you read this psalm, note the different ways Israel sinned and fell away from the Lord, and prayerfully make application.
- Note the effect and result of rebellion (v. 43, for example)
- From verse 47 we can learn this psalm was written by an Israelite in exile. Do you remember why Israel was taken out of their land into exile? Cf. 2 Chronicles 36:11–21.
