Psalms Chapter 21 Discussion

  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 21
    Psalm 21

    The Psalm seems to describe a king (small k) which would signify an earthly ruler; and some of the statements from verses 1 through 7 fit that premise. Nonetheless; there are Messianic traits from verse 8 on that indicate either Christ or God Himself fulfilling justice and wrath on the earth in the future.

    Verse 4; for instance could fit with promises given to the lineage of David with Solomon; for example whose reign in theory would be infinite if he had remained obedient. These promises; however were not to be met with any fallible human ruler. We see sentiments to this in Psalm 2:7-8 as to us being the reward for Christ's sufferings as His adopted Sons.

    Verse 8 talks of the "right hand" of God finding enemies. The right hand of God has been used to signify Christ ( Heb. 1:3; Rev. 5:7 etal).

    Verse 9 is much like Malachi 4:1 as to the description of Christ's return at Armageddon.


    Verse 10 is like Isaiah 14:21 on the offspring of the wicked; and can be related to Revelation 17 and 18 as well with the final destruction of Babylon (also referred to extensively in the writings of Jeremiah).

    Verse 11 reminds us of Jeremiah 18:12 as well as other Psalms in the devices of the wicked coming to naught. And verse 12 is similar to Psalm 56:9 although there are other verses that discuss God making people turn their backs before judgment is rendered.

    Finally; verse 13 asks God to be exalted so we can praise Him and sing to Him because of His power. This could be singing a "new song" or other related verses ( Psalm 98:1 and of course Revelation verses).
  • David on Psalms 21
    I shall joy in the greatness of you Lord. You always answer and you stand next to me daily. Thank you for your comfort and peace.

    Help me to know you in the depth of your Scripture. Though I do not deserve anything, you have chosen to bless me. May I learn to walk in the integrity of your holiness.

  • Mild Bill on Psalms 21
    When we see the King on the cross, where is his strength?Despite pain and anguish

    he has a desire in his heart.His days were never numbered and he was purposed to

    accomplish God's will.A gladness of unsurpassed measure was his because he

    knew the facial expression,countenance, of the Lord.Yet, it was mercy of the Father

    that sustained him in his explicit trust in the Father.A trust that grows within believers,

    rooted in the trust of our Lord Jesus,the author and finisher of our faith.Hebrews12:2
