A prayer for rescue, with confidence that God will save.
st. 1 = vv. 1-3
st. 2 = vv. 4-7
Though very short, this psalm is a classic example of a psalm prayer. It contains the most common elements of these prayers: an initial appeal for God to hear and save (w. 1-2); an indication of distress and an indictment of the ruthless strangers who attack "without regard for God" (v. 3); a confession of confidence that God will help (v. 4); a call for God to deal as a judge with the attackers (v. 5); and a vow to praise God for his deliverance (w. 6-7). The versification is a 1985 revision by Helen Otte (PHH 17) of the text published in The Book of Psalms for Singing (1973).
Ref1ection upon the church's or the individual's trust in God.
