An Unwilling Rebel (Psalm 5:1-12)

Phillip Kayser, PhD, May 1, 2011
Part of the Life of David series, preached at a Sermon service

Psalm 5 was written at the end of 1Samuel 20, and forms an important background for the actions of David in the later chapters of 1Samuel. David did not relish being forced into the role of a rebel. But neither was he willing to embrace a false peace. This Psalm gives the necessary ingredients for maintaining the careful balance needed when the state forces you into civil disobedience.
