Psalm 38

Psalm 38

As you and I study the Psalms, we are constantly confronted with the fact that David is just a man. We vault him to a grand position but facts are facts. David was the man, with the help of God, who defeated the Giant. He was the exalted “king” of Israel. David ushered in the Golden Age of Israel. We are exposed to the emotional side of this man by the inspiration of God to let us understand that mankind has emotions and those emotions must be dealt with properly.
