  • A Short Commentary on the Psalms
    Psalm 5:1-12]
    Lord, listen to my cry for help!

    Psalm 5 is another prayer for help as in psalms 3 and 4. Psalmist faces false accusations; there are those who plot to destroy him. Psalm could refer to individuals [like Jesus] or community, unjustly attacked by enemies by their poisonous words and schemes. Psalmist prays ardently: ‘attend to my cry’, my king. Addressing God as king, the psalmist acknowledges that God’s reign sustains the world and he is in control. God
    can deal with the enemies of the psalmist! Psalm 5 reminds us that prayer of trust is ‘waiting in expectation’. Man’s effort to lead a good life, remove evil or bring peace to the world should accompany God’s action/grace in such effort. Waiting in expectation means we ‘sojourn with God’ [Psalm 5:4]. Psalmist knows that God as king, his heart is set on freeing the oppressed, the weighed down, his will is to protect the weak, the innocent and oppose evil. Psalmist appeals to this God of justice to rescue him, for he is
    innocent and wronged by the wicked!
