Psalm 116

While this psalm is written in the first person, there are indications that, like the other psalm of this group, it has a national character, and sets forth the reaction of the nation to the deliverance from exile. At the same time it echoes the personal experience of any believer.

  1. How did trouble test the faith of the writer, and what new realization did his experience bring?
  2. What is shown about his prayer during the trouble and afterwards? What resolves and dedication sprang from his experience?

Note. Verse 15. God sets a high value on the life of his people and does not regard their death lightly.
