Does God make any commands?
Does God issue any promises?
- God promises to hear and answer the prayers of His people.
Does this psalm teach anything about Jesus?
- Jesus is the King forever and ever. The heathen will ultimately answer to Him.
- Jesus is the judge.
Does this psalm teach anything about yet-future events?
- Chaos seems to be in control now but this psalm says that while the wicked think God is not watching He actually is and will one day answer the prayers of those whom the wicked afflict.
