Psalms 71

Gaebelein's Annotated BibleGaebelein's Annotated

Verses 1-24

Psalms 71:0

Israel’s Song of Hope

1. Declaration of trust (Psalms 71:1-11 )

2. Anticipations of faith (Psalms 71:12-18 )

3. Revival and victory (Psalms 71:19-24 )

This Psalm, which bears no inscription whatever, gives another prophetic picture of the faith and the anticipations of faith as found in the godly of Israel, when the salvation is about to come out of Zion. They look to Him who is all sufficient to deliver and to save them. The Psalm may well be called Israel’s song of hope. It abounds in many beautiful, refreshing statements, equally precious to us.
