April 17, 2018 Morning Verse Of The Day

59:17 You, O my Strength is repeated from v. 9. In God, the believer finds strength, defense, and mercy. This psalm ends in a grand manner with bold faith in the living God.[1]


59:17 to you I will give praise Earlier, the psalmist stated his intent to watch for God (Ps 59:9). Now he sings praise to God, confident that He will punish his enemies.[2]
