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

  • Now God saves the writer from an entourage of angry animals. Think Hemingway-style bullfights in Pamplona. It's actually enemies of God zoomorphized as bulls—and they aren't messing around.
