Book Four of the Psalms
Psalm 90 opens the fourth book of the Psalms. Toreview, we have now seen 3 books of the Psalms andare approaching the 4
. Book I was largely comprisedof psalms written by David. The time period of thisBook of the Psalms was largely while David was hidingfrom Saul before becoming king. Book II is also largelya Davidic work, but is from a different time period, thatof when David was king until the end of his reign. BookIII then, was the least Davidic of all of the books of thePsalms with only one or two (depending oninterpretation) psalms that were penned by Israel’ssecond king. It is thought that much of Book III waswritten during Israel’s ongoing conflict with Assyria andother warring neighbors.Now Book IV (90-106) appears to contain some Davidicsongs and ideas, but perhaps used as a way of lookingback to the “old country” while Israel is living in exile orat least under the siege of foreign enemies. Thesesongs simultaneously sing of the greatness of the dayswhen Israel followed the Lord, as well as call for areformation be enacted by the people and a rescueenacted by God to bring them back to the promisedland. These Psalms seem to be Israel’s introspection over thecourse of their time in captivity and hardship. Still,much like some of our most hopeful spiritual songs werewritten in times of great adversity, some of the mosthopeful psalms are found in Book IV.
