"Preserve me, O God..."
Day 106 – Psalm 16
“Preserve me, O God…” Psalm 16:1a
THE MICHTAMS OF DAVID
Psalm 16 was not the only one that had this superscription. There were others. Psalm 56-60 all had this superscription.
A VERY PERSONAL PRAYER
Psalm 16 is essentially a prayer. The opening lines of the psalm indicate that the psalmist was going through a crisis.
“Preserve me, O God, for in You I put my trust.
O my soul, you have said to the LORD,
‘My goodness is nothing apart from You.'”
