Psalm 142 – 145

Psalm 143

David is still pleading with God to listen to him as he searches in the past to see the hand of God in his life, and also he saw how he showed him the way to go.

 

Psalm 144

Here he sees that life is fleeting like a shadow and looks at his wonderful creation, and realizes how powerful God is, and to put his trust in him.
