Psalms 28 Commentary

(28:3-5) Fake Friendships - It's easy to fake a friendship. Dishonest people often put on a show of kindness or friendship in order to achieve their own ends. David, in his royal position, may have met many who pretended to be his friend only to meet their own needs. David knew that God would punish these people eventually, but he prayed that their punishment would come swiftly. True believers should be straightforward and sincere in all their relationships.

Dave Burnette's Life Application

A Priority of Prayer

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue in the Book of Psalm with Chapter 28. In our text today we see a theme of Prayer when surrounded by trouble or wickedness. God is our only real source of safety. Prayer is our key to a communing connection with the God who loves us and knows our heart and motives. In making application we see that Prayer is a Priority in our lives. Yes, God knows us and our desires but it Prayer that allows us to communicate with a Holy God - having a conversation that allows us to gain instruction and guidance. Today, more than ever, we are surrounded by wickedness and the trouble that is associated with it. We need to pray and listen to be guided through this world. How about you? Do you pray? Do you pray without ceasing to gain instruction from the Lord? Let us learn from our Psalm and text today to remember that prayer is key to our communion relationship with God that allows us to navigate through this world in which we live. 


Psalm 28

Psalm 28

 1Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me: lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

 2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

 3Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts.

 4Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.

 5Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.

 6Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.

 7The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.

 8The LORD is their strength, and he is the saving strength of his anointed.

 9Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance: feed them also, and lift them up for ever.
