This Psalm is an interesting praise for what God is doing for the King.
Some may want to appropriate this for any leader. The key difference is, though, that this praise is about how God protects and saves the King because the King is in a right relationship with God. That way there’s a clear flow going on between the praise to God for the King. The King is undoubtedly the beneficiary but this is all because of the connection with God – it’s always the God centre going on.
That makes this Psalm all the more intriguing.
For His Name’s Sake
