Sunday's Child: A Prayer for Protection, a Reflection on Psalm 16

Original post at http://suewhitt.blogspot.com/2012/11/a-prayer-for-protection-reflection-on.html


Verse 4 of Psalm 16 reminds us that choosing another god doesn't work out well for people. Verses 5 and 6 are a reminder that the Lord has shown us the way to life, to fullness of joy, and eternal happiness, as well as an expression of appreciation for all that.

We've read Mark and Daniel this week warning of what's coming. While we are waiting for the apocalypse, we need to remember the rest of the psalm, as well.

The psalmist is not afraid. He trusts the Lord to continue to care for the faithful (10-11).

For more, go to Working Preacher  to read commentary on this psalm by Hans Wiersma or an earlier commentary by Mark Throntveit
