Arno Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
Psalms 86



Verses 1-17

Psalm 86

A Prayer

1. The prayer of the poor and needy one (Psalms 86:1-9)

2. The praise of His Name (Psalms 86:10-17)

This Psalm has for an inscription “A prayer of David.” We can hear in it the voice of the Son of David, our Lord, pleading in the place of humiliation, and also the pleadings of the remnant saints. The prophetic element enters in with Psalms 86:9. “All nations whom Thou hast made shall come and worship before thee O Lord.” This will be the glorious result of His humiliation. Into the many and precious details of this Psalm we cannot enter. The name of the Lord (Adonai) is found seven times in this Psalm.
