Psalm 90

Year End memorization – Psalm 90 [ a prayer of Moses]

Questions for meditation:

  1. In verses 2-11, what is said about:
    (a) man and
    (b) God? In view of these facts, what should be man’s attitude (verses 11, 12)?
    What is meant by ‘a heart of wisdom’?
    Cf. Prov. 9:10; Jer. 9:23, 24; Jas. 4:12-16.
  2. Set down in your own words the petitions of verses 13-17. What convictions do they reveal concerning God’s character and action?
    Can the petitions be transposed into a Christian key?

Note. Verse 11. It is only those who truly reverence the Lord who consider the reality of God’s wrath against sin in all its intensity.
