Psalms 6-8: Psalms as Torah
Welcome to the series where we will be investigating each psalm in light of the Torah, honor and shame, justice & righteousness, and analyzing the genre of each psalm and its relationship to the surrounding psalms. I would challenge each of you to read the psalms which will be covered for yourself prior to watching the teaching and reflect upon how each functions as a form of worship to YHWH. Psalms 6 and 7 continue in the line of lament psalms which teach us how to pray to God in our times of need. Psalms 8 is the first praise psalm in the Psalms and serves to praise YHWH for creating the universe and especially for creating mankind!
O YHWH, do not rebuke me in Your anger, Nor chasten me in Your wrath. Be gracious to me, O YHWH, for I am pining away; Heal me, O YHWH, for my bones are dismayed. And my soul is greatly dismayed; But You, O YHWH—how long?
