Search The Scriptures —Study 56 — Psalm 72

Study 56 From the Book of Psalms is: Psalm 72798b3-search-the-srciptures

With this lesson we will take a break for a little while from the book of Psalms. Tomorrow we will start with the book 1 Kings

This is a prophetic psalm, in which Christ is typified by Solomon, whose name means ‘peace’.

  1. What are the two outstanding personal characteristics of Christ as King, as seen in this psalm? See verses, 1, 2 and 12-14; and cf. Ps. 116:5. What does the psalm say will be (a) the results of His rule (verses 3-7, 12-14, 16, 17), (b) the existent of His rule (verses 8-11)?

  2. Does not this psalm give a perfect picture of that happy earth which men are vainly trying to bring into being by their own wisdom and work? But, according to Scripture, who alone can bring it to pass, and to whom therefore should men look for its accomplishment? See verses 1, 17-19; and cf. Acts 4:12; Eph. 1:3.

    Notes

    1. Verse 8. ‘The river’ is the Euphrates

    2. Verses 18, 19. This doxology is not part of the original psalm, but is added as he close of Book 2
