Psalms 25 & 130 (ALL KJV) “REDEEMING ISRAEL” PSALM 25:22 “Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.”… RYRIE XR PSALM 130:7-8 “7 Let Israel hope in the Lord: for with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him is plenteous redemption, 8 And he shall redeem Israel from all his iniquities.”… NOTE: THE MOODY BIBLE COMMENTARY. PS 25:22. [David began the psalm with a declaration of trust in God. He concludes with a prayer for the nation of Israel, that God would make His glory known by redeeming (rescuing and protecting) them “out of all of their “troubles.” Here David implored God to “redeem Israel,” which denotes the work of complete spiritual and physical redemption that only God in His grace can supply; this anticipates the ultimate redemption of Israel by Messiah.] NOTE: THE MOODY BIBLE COMMENTARY. PS 130:7-8. [In response to the forgiveness of God, Israel is reminded to “hope in the Lord (vs 5).” This “hope” is linked to the “lovingkindness” (God’s covenant love, “chesed,” ‘Hebrew,’ 5:7 note). While this exhortation includes the general desire to see His people blessed (i.e., “saved” in the sense typically intended in the NT, as in Rom 10:9) in every age and generation, the psalmist’s primary reference in this section is to that day when God “will redeem Israel from all his iniquities,” that same day of which Zechariah and Paul wrote (Zech 12:10-13:1; Rom 11:25-29).]… RYRIE NOTE: ROM 11:28-29 [Because the promises made to the patriarchs are irrevocable, Israel must be restored.]
The Psalms are much more than writings that, “make us feel good.” The following paragraph comes from the Friends Of Israel weekly radio broadcast. As you can see, there are key components of the Psalms that are often overlooked.
But there is another layer, because the Psalms as you see them now in the Old Testament, were purposefully placed in order. In Israelite history, someone took those divinely inspired songs and ordered them into five books. And eventually, these five books came to reveal the history and the future of Israel, the bright future for Israel. And finally, there’s one more layer, and that layer is you. https://radio.foi.org/2019/10/11/october-12-2019-discovering-the-psalms-the-authors-perspective-pt-1/
The 23rd Psalm is often looked at as being a passage that is read at funerals. But the words, of the psalmist David, show that the Psalm refers to Israel in the Kingdom Age, the millennium. The comments that I placed on the 23rd Psalm post are helpful in understanding the context of David’s writing. King David’s life existed from approximately 1050-970 B.C. (HCSB). When you read the 23rd Psalm, consider David writing about his own life, and his future eternal life with God which will begin when he is resurrected at the end of the tribulation (Daniel 12:1-2). The covenant that God made with King David is discussed in 2 Samuel 7:12-16 (Ryrie Study Bible), and refers to the Kingdom Age of the millennium (The Kingdom Age and the millennium (1,000 years) are the same time period).
