Psalms 7



Verses 1-17

Psalm 7

Historical Background - Psalm Seen is one of several psalms that refer to David"s flight from King Saul.

Psalm 7:1 (Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the LORD, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite.) O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

Psalm 7:1Comments- Is the Hebrew name "Cush" ( כּוּשׁ) (H 3568) a reference to Kish ( קִישׁ) (H 7027), the father of King Saul? The names are similar in the Hebrew.

Psalm 7:3 O LORD my God, if I have done this; if there be iniquity in my hands;

Psalm 7:3 — "if I have done this" - Comments- Some scholars say that this could be a reference to something that King Saul accused him of, as in 1 Samuel 24:9. It may be referring to an accusation to Kish, Saul"s father, or an accusation from an unknown person named Cush.

1 Samuel 24:9, "And David said to Saul, Wherefore hearest thou men"s words, saying, Behold, David seeketh thy hurt?"
