Suffering Mixes with Truth

The next set of psalms were penned during a time of
intense persecution, loss, and hopelessness. I was
amazed to find that David had written ten prayers,
for they are prayers, in the space of four chapters.
I am not sure how many months or even years that
those chapters covered.  See 1Samuel 21-24.
In Psalm 34 David states:

 "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but, 
the Lord delivers him out of them all." 

Tomorrow I will do a time line of these afflictions
and then get into some of David's responses in the
psalms. This is powerful stuff!
