Gaebelein's Annotated Bible
In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.Psalm 71
Israel’s Song of Hope
1. Declaration of trust (Psalm 71:1-11)
2. Anticipations of faith (Psalm 71:12-18)
3. Revival and victory (Psalm 71:19-24)
This Psalm, which bears no inscription whatever, gives another prophetic picture of the faith and the anticipations of faith as found in the godly of Israel, when the salvation is about to come out of Zion. They look to Him who is all sufficient to deliver and to save them. The Psalm may well be called Israel’s song of hope. It abounds in many beautiful, refreshing statements, equally precious to us.
