Psalms 55-56

Psalms 55-56

Chapter 55: David Seeks Protection

To the chief Musician on Neinoth, Maschill, A Psalm of David.

                David spends morning, afternoon and evening praying for the Lord’s protection. He says that “…the terrors of death are fallen upon…” him. (Psalms 55:4)

                He tells us that the wicked fear not God, but because of that he puts his trust in the Lord and prays for His mighty protection from the evil.

Chapter 56: The Book of Remembrance

To the chief Musician upon Jonath-elem-rechokim, Mitcham of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath.

                David continues by telling us that he “…will praise his [God’s] word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.” (Psalms 56:4) We, like David, should not fear what man can do to us! We must fear God only! With that trust and faith in God, He will deliver us from the evil in the world!
