Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 56

 

 

Verses 1-13

Psalm 56

The Faithfulness of God, the Comfort of His People

1. Trust and Comfort (Psalms 56:1-9)

2. Praise for anticipated deliverance (Psalms 56:10-13)

These five Psalms which are grouped together are Michtam Psalms. This one was written by David when the Philistines took him at Gath. The inscription Jonathelem-rechokim has been rendered by the Septuagint translators as “upon the people driven afar from the holy place,” the literal rendering is, “The dove of silence in far off places.” On account of the great tribulation, the abomination in Jerusalem, seen in the previous Psalm, the godly have left the city and here we have the expressions of their trust in the faithfulness of their God. Whatever the enemy may do they can say in all their wanderings and with all their tears, “Thou tellest my wanderings, put Thou my tears into Thy bottle, are they not in Thy book?” Blessed comfort is ours too.
