Guest Response to Psalm 6

Today’s response is written by Joshua Skogerboe.  Many of you are already familiar with his work, as I link to it regularly on Forum Fridays.  Aside from being an excellent writer, Josh is a husband, father, seminarian, and Worship Director for Living Hope Church. There are three days that come to mind.  Three of my […]

Responding to Psalm 6

Psalm 6 (Here is the complete study on Psalm 6: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.) This will be shorter than normal, but that’s ok. In my first impressions of Psalm 6, I wrote: Suddenly, in verse eight, David is rebuking his enemies and sending them away.  Where did that come from?  […]

Misery Loves Company – Psalm 6:8-10

Psalm 6:8-10 (For the previous three studies on Psalm 6, click here, here, and here.) [1] Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “misery loves company.”  I think that phrase applies to our passage today, in a sort of not-in-the-way-it’s-normally-used sense.  David has been wallowing in misery throughout the duration of this Psalm.  And now we find out […]

Marooned on a Desert Island – Psalm 6:4-5

Psalm 6:4-5 (For the first study on Psalm 6, click here.) Often, in preaching and in teaching, I have stated that the most quoted verse in the Bible isn’t John 3:16, but rather it is, “God helps those who help themselves.”  The only problem is this verse is not in the Bible.  Go ahead, look for […]

A Meltdown Moment – Psalm 6:1-3

Psalm 6:1-3 People love meltdowns…from a distance.  For many, the highlight of a baseball game, especially for fans of a losing team, is watching as a player or manager loses his cool with an umpire.  The ensuing argument provides entertainment and usually brings the crowd to life, and it only escalates the situation when the […]

First Impressions of Psalm 6

Psalm 6 Theme The theme of the Psalm is sorrow and suffering – for some reason.  Verse one seems to point that David is confessing it is his own sin that has caused whatever predicament he seems to be in.  This would bring us into a close parallel with Psalm 32:3-4. It seems like the […]
