A key theme in Pss. 9-11

March 2, 2009

Ps. 9:7 “The LORD reigns forever;
he has established his throne for judgment.”

Ps. 9:11 “Sing the praises of the LORD, enthroned in Zion;
proclaim among the nations what he has done.”

Ps. 10:16 “The LORD is King for ever and ever;
the nations will perish from his land.”

Ps. 11:4 “The LORD is in his holy temple;
the LORD is on his heavenly throne.
He observes everyone on earth;
his eyes examine them.”

    Richard, I’ve been perusing the blog and have enjoyed your comments. I’ve noticed this same theme as well, but am also intrigued by the psalmists remarks surrounding it. I’m thinking especially of the opening remarks in Psalms 10 and 12. Though proclaiming Yhwh as king, the psalmist is daring enough to ask where he is in the midst of trouble and distress. Do you think its possible to detect a linking between these psalms? If so, what might the significance of such a link be?
