Psalms Psalms 19-22 Summary

Psalm 19

  • In this psalm, God's law isn't just like nature—God's law is nature. Be afraid, people. Be very afraid.

Psalm 20

  • Here, God provides strength not through military might, but through his name alone. Intense.

Psalm 21

  • This psalm is a monarchy endorsement if ever there was one. Read and be convinced.

Psalm 22

  • This depressed dude is having what can only be described as a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day; his heart has turned to wax, and he's surrounded by wild beasts. Yikes. He's half furious that God let things get this far and half praiseworthy of God's great ways. He'll figure it out, we hope.
