The reassurance of faith in the face of enemy threat.
st. l = vv. 1-5
st. 2 = vv. 6-10
A song of assurance, Psalm 75 contains many thematic parallels to the Song of Hannah (1 Sam. 2:1-10; see PHH 158). Thanksgiving (v. 1) and praise (w. 9-10) frame the song, while faith-reassuring words from heaven (w. 2-5; st. 1) and a triumphant response from earth (w. 6-8; st. 2) form the song's core. Helen Otte (PHH 17) versified this psalm in 1985 for the Psalter Hymnal.
Occasions of thanksgiving for and reassurance of God's faithful rescue of his people in the face of threats from enemies.
