THEMES OF PSALMS
Each of the Psalms has a theme. Themes are sometimes very clear and obvious. Some themes are introduced at the beginning of the psalm. At other times the theme becomes more prominently displayed towards the end of the Psalm.
THEME: THE KING OF GLORY
The theme of Psalm 24 becomes more obvious towards the end of the Psalm. The phrase “The King of Glory” takes centre stage in the last four verses of the Psalm.
A GENTLE BUT POSITIVE BEGINNING
David chose a gentle but positive beginning as he wrote Psalm 24.
“The earth is the LORD’s and all its fullness,
The world and those who dwell therein.
For He has founded it upon the seas,
And established it upon the waters.”
