Psalmtweets: psalms 11-20

This is the second post for my latest round of psalmtweets. The aim is that each tweet is faithful to a key aspect of a specific psalm, as well as pointing to a broader dynamic of the Psalter. This ‘design’ is an attempt to mirror the nature of the Psalter, in that individual psalms come together in a synergy which makes a greater whole.

Psalm 11:
The Psalms speak of a glorious future when we will see Yahweh’s face.

Psalm 12:
The Psalms explore the positive efficacy of Yahweh’s words and the destructive negativity of humanity’s speech.

Psalm 13:
The Psalms show that the life of faith is about relationships; with Yahweh, with His people and with our enemies.

Psalm 14:
The Psalms have harsh words for those of God’s people who do not live up to His instruction.

Psalm 15:
The Psalms speak of the need for clean hands. In Christ our hands are made clean.

Psalm 16:
The Psalms help us along the path; in God’s presence there is fullness of joy.

Psalm 17:
The Psalms tell us that we are the apple of God’s eye.

Psalm 18:
The Psalms give us language for personal prayer and corporate worship.

Psalm 19:
The Psalms tell us that both creation and Scripture testify to the glory and righteousness of Yahweh.

Psalm 20:
The Psalms need to be reread. For example, the name of our Lord Jesus is not found there. But He can be found there.
