Discussion for Psalms 13

    "sleep the sleep of death" is referring to death, as the Bible gives definition to in 1Thessalonians 4.
  • Mild Bill
    "sleep of death" is a person continuing without God in thoughts, knowledge or understanding. Jesus said, "As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent." John17:2

    Verse 5 states "my heart SHALL rejoice in thy salvation". David chose to focus on the Father's goodness toward him and to trust Him in the midst of his circumstances.

    Verse 6 He choses to sing in thanksgiving for what the Father has already done for him. Our focus and praise must always remain, regardless of how things may appear.
  • Breeze
    We often grew weary in waiting. We have a lot of sorrow in our heart and we carry the burden. However, David chooses, in spite of his sorrow, to rejoice because the Lord will eventually answer. So should we.

    We are so thankful to God for his mercy in dealing with imperfect humans. We can rejoice in his salvation because he gave us the sacrifice of his dear son so that we can be saved from sin and death.
