Psalms 59

Verses 1-17

Psalms 59:0

Gentile Enmity Against Israel

1. Surrounded by nations (Psalms 59:1-8 )

2. Their judgment anticipated (Psalms 59:9-17 )

Another Michtam of David when he was persecuted by Saul. While in previous Psalms we saw prophetically the remnant of the last suffering from their own ungodly brethren and the Antichrist, here the nations are their enemies. The word “heathen” should always be translated “nations.” They will surround Jerusalem. This is mentioned in Psalms 59:6 . They are like the dogs, the term used for Gentiles in the Word. The godly pray for deliverance and in faith sing of His power--” I will sing aloud of Thy mercy in the morning”--that coming morning when the shadows flee away.
