Psalms 78



Verses 1-72

Psalm 78-83

Psalm 78

A Historical Retrospect

1. The call to hear (Psalms 78:1-8)

2. Ephraim’s failure (Psalms 78:9-11)

3. His dealings in power and mercy (Psalms 78:12-55)

4. The continued provocation (Psalms 78:56-64)

5. His sovereign grace in choosing David (Psalms 78:65-72)

This historical retrospect needs no further comment. It is God speaking to the hearts of His people through their own history from Egypt to David. How graciously He dealt with them all the way! The crowning fact is His sovereign grace in choosing Judah, Mount Zion which he loved, building there His sanctuary, and choosing David His servant to feed Jacob His people and Israel His inheritance. Here we may well think of the Son of David, God’s Anointed in whom God’s sovereign grace is made known and who will yet feed Jacob and Israel His inheritance.
