Pastor John, you mentioned that situations differed under which the Psalmists wrote, but weren't there different Psalmists with different reference points? Do we know the specific Psalmists who are connected to specific Pslams and should that be taken into consideration (if my premise is even correct)?

Thank you also for your mention of the Ukrainian situation... I think it's difficult for the majority of us to not feel a little guilty at our response of empathy & support when we were not so for other oppressed ethnic minorities, whose lands were also invaded & destroyed not so long ago.

Yes, there were different Psalmists, and we know very little about them. Many of the Psalms have some kind of attribution to them ("of David" or "of Asaph," for example) but it doesn't necessarily mean that they were written directly by those people. And of the people named in these attributions, David is the only one we know anything about in any detail. (Psalm 90, the psalm "of Moses," is the only exception I can think of). A few psalms, such as 51, have introductions that tell the exact situation they are written from, but that is relatively rare.


And yes, it's important to recognize that we always pray imperfectly, and that we (and all our ancestors) are sinners praying…
