This is a psalm that shines with new light when we know the probable circumstances of the time when it was composed. See the psalm heading and 1 Sam. 21:10 – 22:2. Perhaps it was sung in the cave of Adullam for the instruction of David’s followers.
- Who are those who may expect the Lord’s blessings?
Note the various ways in which these people are described.
Are we ourselves entitled to claim blessings on the same ground?
- Make a numbered list (avoiding repetition) of the blessings God gives to his people, as stated in this psalm
