Tehillim / Psalms 28, Part 1, Prayer and being Son’s of Righteousness


This week’s study is from Tehillim / Psalms 28:1-9, David opens saying א   לְדָוִד אֵלֶיךָ יְהֹוָה | אֶקְרָא צוּרִי אַל-תֶּחֱרַשׁ מִמֶּנִּי פֶּן-תֶּחֱשֶׁה מִמֶּנִּי וְנִמְשַׁלְתִּי עִם-יוֹרְדֵי בוֹר:  A Psalm of David. 28:1 To You, O Lord, I call; My rock, do not be deaf to me, For if You are silent to me, I will become like those who go down to the pit. (NASB)  How does David understand those who go down to the pit?  What does it mean to go down to the pit?  David is crying out for the Lord to hear him saying ב   שְׁמַע קוֹל תַּחֲנוּנַי בְּשַׁוְּעִי אֵלֶיךָ בְּנָשְֹאִי יָדַי אֶל-דְּבִיר קָדְשֶׁךָ: ג   אַל-תִּמְשְׁכֵנִי עִם-רְשָׁעִים וְעִם-פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן דֹּבְרֵי שָׁלוֹם עִם-רֵעֵיהֶם וְרָעָה בִּלְבָבָם: 28:2 Hear the voice of my supplications when I cry to You for help, When I lift up my hands toward Your holy sanctuary.  28:3 Do not drag me away with the wicked And with those who work iniquity, Who speak peace with their neighbors, While evil is in their hearts. (NASB)  Why does David feel the Lord will drag him away with the wicked and those who work iniquity? Read More Here: Tehillim 28-Part1
