Psalms 57

Verses 1-11

Psalms 57:0

Perfect Trust in God

1. Sheltered until the trouble is past (Psalms 57:1-5 )

2. Deliverance and praise (Psalms 57:6-11 )

The inscription is Al-taschith, which means “destroy not”; it is the Michtam of David when he fled from Saul. It shows us once more the exercise of faith in the godly of Israel. In the shadow of His wings they take refuge till these calamities are overpast. They look for intervention from above, from where it will surely come at the close of the days of tribulation. “He shall send from heaven, and save me.” Then they know they will be delivered in anticipation of which the voice of praise is heard. “Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, let Thy glory cover all the earth.”
