  12. Types of Psalms • Lament: • Can be individual or group • Expresses sadness to the Lord • Asks for His help to fix a problem Psalm 70:1 Hasten, O God, to save me; O LORD, come quickly to help me.

  13. Lament • Structure: • Introductory Cry to God • Description of Problem • Plea for Help • Statement of Trust • Confession of Sin of Statement of innocence VI. Conclusion-vow of praise or pledge

  14. Lament Advice From the Psalmists If we look at these psalms of lament as a group, we discover three words of advice from the psalmists who wrote them. 1.  Look _____________ Psalms 7:3ff O Lord my God, if I have done this, If there is injustice in my hands, Psalms 26 Vindicate me, O Lord, for I have walked in my integrity; And I have trusted in the Lord without wavering.  INWARD

  15. Lament The psalmist first looks at his situation to see if his own sin has caused it.  If so, he asks for forgiveness and restoration.

  16. Lament UPWARD 2.  Look _____________ Psalms 3:8 "From the Lord comes deliverance"Psalms 25:15 "My eyes are ever on the Lord, for only He will release my feet from the snare." The psalmists knew that their only real help would come from the Lord God.  After confessing any known sin, they put their faith in God to deliver them out of the situation, or sustain them within it.

  17. Lament OUTWARD 3.  Look ______________ Psalm 5:11 "...let all who take refuge in You be glad; let them ever sing for joy.  Spread Your protection over them, that those who love Your Name may rejoice in You." Psalm 25:22 "Redeem Israel, O God, from all their troubles!" Even though the psalmist was experiencing great sorrow, he was able to look past his situation to others and to intercede for them.

  18. Types of Psalms • Thanksgiving Psalms: • Songs that praise God for His specific help or deliverance in a situation • Can be for individual or group Psalm 40:1-2 I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.

  22. Descriptive Praise • Structure: • Call to Praise II. Cause for Praise (Main body of Hymn praises God for His attributes or deeds III. Concludes with a wish, prayer, blessing or renewed praise

  23. Types of Psalms • Didactic: • Teaches about Wisdom • Teaches about the law • Warns or instructs Psalm 119:9-10 How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word. I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.

  25. Some Sub Topics • Imprecatory: • Invokes curse against the wicked Psalm 137:8-9 O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us -- he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.

  26. Some Sub Topics • Songs of Trust: • Emphasize that God can be trusted no matter how bad things look Psalm 23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

  27. Some Sub Topics • Pilgrim Psalms: • Psalms sung on the way to Jerusalem Psalm 125:1-2 A song of ascents. Those who trust in the LORD are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the LORD surrounds his people both now and forevermore.

  28. Some Sub Topics • Messianic Psalms: • Psalms that are prophetic about, or are used by the New Testament to point to Christ Psalm 22:1 My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me, so far from the words of my groaning?

  29. PRAYERS and POETRY The Psalms unite human experience and emotion with deep theology about God. Another way of saying it is that the Psalmists plugged what they were feeling into the truth about God
