Psalm 31

  1. What would you pick out as the most bitter ingredients in David’s cup of sorrow (verses 9-18) ?
    What would you do if you were in a similar situation?
    What did David do?
  2. In the rest of the psalm what witness does David bear to God both in his prayer and praise?
    What message does he bring to fellow – believers everywhere?

Note. Verse 5a  Cf. Luke 23:46 as evidence that this psalm was in our Lord’s mind on the cross.
