Psalm 21



This Psalm of King David is connected to Psalm 20 when we compare and contrast verse 2 of Psalm 21 with verse 4 of Psalm 20. In it we can read of thanksgiving, rejoicing, joy, mercy, deliverance, assurance, trust and dependence. It is a beautiful poem of salvation in all its elements towards those who believe.


Psalm 20 and Psalm 21 show us two very important spiritual life application principles:-

1) Psalm 20 is about intercession – praying into the warfare we all experience.
