Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 28

 

 

Verses 1-9

Psalm 28

Prayer For Judgment and Praise For the Answer

1. Prayer for judgment (Psalms 28:1-5)

2. Praise for the answer (Psalms 28:6-9)

Psalms 28:1-5. Their cry now increaseth because of their enemies, the enemies of Israel in the last days. They breathe out cruelty to them (Psalms 27:12). They pass through the valley of the shadow of death and if He does not answer and remains silent they be like those that go down to the pit. Hence the imprecatory prayer, “Give them according to their deeds, etc.” (Psalms 28:4)

Psalms 28:6-9. In faith the answer is anticipated and praise is given for it. The Psalm ends with a prayer. “Save Thy people (Israel), and bless Thine inheritance, and lift them up forever.” The next Psalms bring the answer.
