This is the last chapter in Psalms before moving back to 1 Samuel. If you are sick of reading about Psalms, then the good news is Monday I will have a new chapter in 1 Samuel for you. For now though, let’s fight through Psalms 142.
“I pour out before him my complaint; before him I tell my trouble.” – Psalms 142:2
David better watch out. Job did this and suffered miserably!
“Look and see, there is no one at my right hand; no one is concerned for me.” – Psalms 142:4
David is complaining that he has no friends. It’s quite possible he has no friends because he spends all of his time praising and signing to God!
“Listen to my cry, for I am in desperate need; rescue me from those who pursue me, for they are too strong for me.” – Psalms 142:6
If you’re being robbed, you don’t ask the robber to rescue you. You call the police, if possible. David is being pursued by Saul who is controlled by God. David asking the robber to rescue him. David needs to call the police!
That concludes Psalms 142. More of the same. More pleading to God and praising God. Sigh. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
Coming Soon: 1 Samuel – Chapter 25: David, Nabal and Abigail
