Study 11  From The Book of Psalms  Is: Psalm 18:1-30

  1. David begins by expressing his love for the Lord (verses 1-3). God was to him a rock, fortress, shield and stronghold.  What are the equivalent defences and securities in which men trust today? Is God to you all that these can give, and more?  Cf. Hab. 3:17, 18; Heb. 13: 5, 6.
  2. From David’s testimony concerning God’s answer to his prayer, what can we learn as to (a) God’s power to help, (b) the sort of person God will help, and (c) the reasons why this help will be forthcoming?
  1. Verses 9-16 are probably not intended to be taken literally, but as a poetic description in vivid imagery of the strength and majesty with which God came to David’s aid.
  2. Verse 29a. There is a possible allusion here to 1 Sa. 30:8; and in verse 29b to 2 Sa. 5:6, 7
