Psalms Chapter 60 Discussion

  • Richard H Priday on Psalms 60
    Psalm 60.

    Apparently David was in charge of and/or led several campaigns in an area that is somewhat disputed today as to the exact location(s) due to the topography and changes in the landscape since Biblical times. Nonetheless I am unaware of any great miracles of God causing the earth to shift such as in verse 2.

    The whole area surrounding Jerusalem in the territory God promised a includes not only the area already conquered and allotted to tribes but surrounding territories (verses 6-8). These larger regions and the other references seeming to indicate a larger judgment probably are prophetic to things which will happen in the end times. The trumpet and bowl judgments will affect the whole world with earthquakes; and the "wine of astonishment" referred to in verse 3 is found in Isaiah; Jeremiah; Ezekiel and a later Psalm as well as of course describing Babylon the Great in Revelation 17 and 18. Of course the Book of Lamentations involving the Babylonian captivity also caused great famine and cannibalism as a horrible sign resulting from the abominable sins that God forewarned about that would cause such things to be unleashed. That is also a warning today to Israel who will have to go through the fire in the Tribulation for national revival to finally occur.

    Further evidence of future prophecy is seen in verses 10-12. Edom is mentioned in the Book of Hosea with last day fulfillments as well. Christ coming down to earth is mentioned in Zechariah 14. He will; of course tread down His enemies in the wine of His wrath alone ( Isaiah 63:3) as well as Revelation 19.

    Perhaps these themes were an encouragement to David as well as us that eventually all of the territory God promised in the promise of the Covenant He gave to Abraham will be fulfilled.
  • David on Psalms 60
    Leaving the safety of God's presence, we have brought unto ourselves troubles and cursing. Our enemies are before us and we are under their heavy hand because of our sins before you, Lord. We must confess, repent and fall on the mercies of God and on His grace. May we remember the blessings of old from the Lord's hand and that we may be again under the protective wings of our Lord God almighty. Bless us with your peace, and comfort. August 2021

    Positive people see an opportunity in every worry, while negative people see some kind of worry in every opportunity.

    The events taking place thus moving David by the Spirit to write this Psalm seem obscure to us, until we consider them with the view of David's purpose of God to win for Israel ALL its promised land, even to the Euphrates River. This tremendous feat was not however followed up worthily by the sons of Israel, for they never established their Borders according to the Victories David got for them.
  • A disciple on Psalms 60
    Dear BSP; I have to tell you, that even these kinds of Scriptures are still mightily filled with the Spirit of God, and written of Divine purpose; not merely David's feelings (as you suppose) as if he was discouraged. Look at the world around us! What do you see? Do you see as I do, that the restraint is being taken away? Why do you think that is? Because God sees no integrity or truth in people!
  • BSP on Psalms 60
    Verse 1: David was busy fighting the Syrians and while this was taking place the Edomites decided they would attack. David felt that God had left him. We can feel the same way when we face multiple problems that seem to overwhelm us. This account can help us to see that Jehovah God never leaves his loyal servants even when they face trials.

    Jesus said upon this rock meaning the truth I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it... And that's the unadulterated truth.

    God"s word to us in Genesis shows his promise to us. Although the sepent bruise our heel we will crush his head. Power on earth does not belong to Satan. Satan's job is to antagonnize us, the christian our job is to crush him.

    The banner of truth God has given us is not to be hidden, it must be displayed verse 4 . For no man lighteth a candle and put it under a bushel.
  • With Love on Psalms 60
    Amen Rev....that is a very truthful comment. When I first read the Bible, I knelt down by my bed and surrendered all to Christ, Amen. In reading my Bible, I saw Jesus from Genesis on, and everything foretold fell into place. I never found one inconsistency throughout the Bible. Thank you, my Lord and Savior.

  • Matthew chabalanga on Psalms 60
    verse 12 shows the authority that we have when GOD ALMIGHTY is on our shows that nothing can hinder us from doing what we can do if GOD wills-in matthew 10;1-6 JESUS gave His disciples the Authority over everything and every enemy.These does not talk of only those apostles but we the believers of this generation.

    Jehovah Nissi God is our Banner, Moses had this revealed when Israel defeated the enemy in the wilderness Victory of the enemy is ours
  • TR on Psalms 60
    This Psalm is full of terror and hope. As we see our own nation falter and fail, we must remember that God's Covenant with America, which was first his covenant with New England, is a conditional covenant. It depend, in part, on our walking according to the grace received.

    Whenever we turn our back on God's law and profane his name and follow after the totems of money or sensuality or vanity, his wrath will break out against us.

    After seasons of patience and pleading which are set by his perfect justice and mercy, He will turn from us and break out against us and leave us to our own devises. He will, as the Psalmist says, show us "hard things."

    So it is with America today. The nation Lincoln called "God's almost chosen people" has crossed the line. We have forsaken the LORD and he has withdrawn his favor from us. There is only one remedy, and it is "returning to the Lord with repentance, faith, and prayer; beseeching him to return to us."
  • Willie on Psalms 60
    its a good reading of this verse
  • Given Mathebula on Psalms 60:11
    It simply means don't seek help looking at men; for vain is their help. In Jeremiah 17:5, it continues to say cursed is the man that puts his trust on men, when men help you, they will talk about you.
