Book 3 (Ps.73-89)

Seek Refuge -—Corresponds with the book of Leviticus.

This section relates to Leviticus due in part to the fact that most of the Psalms were written by Levitical priests. These were written to be sung by the temple choirs (liturgical songs). These Psalms remind us that God alone is holy and that we should remember our place before Him. When we come into God’s presence (i.e. the temple) we should have reverential fear.

The introduction to this book announces, “Truly God is good to Israel” (73:1). God has been just in all of His dealings with the nation of Israel despite the sufferings that the people often went through. The doxology also has the double Amen, and speaks of the fact that God has kept His covenant with David; therefore He should be worshipped and praised.
