Psalm 13. Psalm 13 NIV

Tehillim

Psalm 13

When he still loves them, and will with everlasting kindness have mercy on them see Isa. We Christians, and David as well, need to take that advice. His heart is filled with joy as he thinks of the deliverance which God will bring about. He must hear from God immediately. We think in terms of minutes, hours, and days, but God works in terms of years.

Psalm 13

Psalm 13

David thought of the enemies of Israel as enemies not just of men, but of God as well. The feelings of loss and abandonment are so great that one is unable to see when the end will come. And sometimes this continues a long time and then they fear they are forgotten for ever. Another Devotion from Psalm 13 which first appeared in the blog, , in February, 2011. Nothing escapes his notice or somehow slips out of his memory — like it can with us. How long will you turn your face from me? He asks God, How long will you forget me? He was enjoying the comforts of the palace, while David was sleeping in caves. Let us rejoice in the salvation we have in the Lord because no matter what happens to us, our salvation cannot be taken away.

Psalm 13

For the end, a Psalm of David. He loves His children and His love is unfailing. Thus it is pure grace, undeserved on our part. We must keep an awareness of God and the enemy before us at all times. Allen, And I Will Praise Him, pp150-65.

Psalm 13

But now not only is a singular enemy in view, but now there is this groups of troublers. God has done far more for us than we usually can remember. Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time? Let us consider what David says in Psalm 13. Would God hide his face from David? Why did he have to sit there for more than two years? Oh that we would be more like David. But I also believe that there are times in the life of every Christian, when even though you are walking by faith and there is no known sin in your life, God seems far away.

Psalm 13

עַד־אָ֨נָה אָשִׁ֪ית עֵצ֡וֹת בְּנַפְשִׁ֗י יָג֣וֹן בִּלְבָבִ֣י יוֹמָ֑ם עַד־אָ֓נָה יָר֖וּם אֹֽיְבִ֣י עָלָֽי: Look and answer me, O Lord my God; enlighten my eyes lest I sleep the sleep of death. He had been anointed as king by the prophet Samuel when he was a teenager. It seemed as if God had forgotten David, had hidden Himself from him, and as if it would last forever. We try this and that and it fails. For two more years Joseph languished in prison. No matter what situation may come upon us, the first thing every person must do is pray.

Psalm 13 NIV

Psalm 13

Will You hide Yourself forever? David will marshall all that he is to sing to the Lord with enthusiasm when God deals bountifully with him — or when he repays David, in a positive way. Till when dost Thou hide Thy face from me? He also is experiencing sorrow in his heart daily. In Psalm 13, David is wrestling with this very issue of his enemy winning. He seeks to find a way of escape from his difficulties, but cannot discover one. To finish the story I left off with in the introduction to this message — the man who wanted me and my department to lose our jobs — the Lord actually allowed me to discover that he was lying to our clients about advertising numbers. Psalm 13 Commentary: Summary This is where Psalm 13 can be instructive and helpful for us. Nothing is more killing to a soul than the want of God's favour; nothing more reviving than the return of it.
