May 18, 2017: Day 138 – Psalm 138

If you look at the verses beginning at 7-8 you get a feel that you have been transported back to Psalm 23.  It begins with the somewhat familiar words: “though I walk in the midst of trouble…”, it sounds a bit like the words: “Though I walk in the valley of the shadow of death…” There is also a similarity in the words: “you preserve me against the wrath of my enemies”, sounds very similar to: “you prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies”.  And yet while Psalm 23 is one of the most reassuring psalms, this psalm doesn’t make the list.  But it is a good psalm whether it makes the list or not.
