1 Click to edit Master title style Where is Your Former Loving Kindness? Psalm 89

2 Background Written by Ethan the Ezrahite 1 Kngs. 4:31? A Mishil (or contemplation) Psalm 89

3 Background Written during a time when the throne of David was in distress. Best fit, during the fall of Judah to Babylon ( cf. 2 Kngs. 24:8 - Jehoiachin) Psalm 89

4 Praise to God (1-4) Typical beginning Acknowledges God’s mercy Vs. 3-4 – God’s covenant with David ( 2 Sam. 7: )

5 Faithfulness of God (5-18) All creation attributed to Him Faithfulness in the assembly of the saints - Vs. 5, 7 None in the heavens compare He is mighty Faithfulness surrounds Him Righteous & Just “Our shield” ( vs. 18 )

6 David’s Throne (19-29) Recalls the throne taken from King Saul and given to David 1 Sam. 13:14, 16: God’s promise to establish David’s throne – His throne and seed will endure forever

7 David’s descendants (30-37) Punished for iniquity But God’s lovingkindness and faithfulness will not fail Covenant will not be broken – His throne and seed will endure forever

8 David’s descendants (30-37) This statement consistent with God’s character ( 1 Sam. 15:29, 1 Cor. 1:9, 2 Tim. 2:13, Jas. 1:17, … ) Was His promise conditional? Cf. 1 Kn. 2:1-4 Did God force His people to follow Him?

9 David’s descendants (30-37) Note Vs. 34, – what would endure? His throne and his seed Is there anything in these verses that precludes their fulfillment in heaven?

10 You have cast us off (38-45) A strong description of Judah’s rejection. Some this as going too far in accusing God of failing to keep His word Is the charge RASH? Who abhorred the covenant? Consider Rom. 11:33, 9:19- 21

11 How long? (46-51) Psalmist asks for deliverance and soon. He recalls former times, BUT consider Isa. 55:8-9 Vs. 52 – Believed to actually be conclusion of book 3

12 David’s Throne His throne was to last – Jer. 33:14-18 Spoken of the promised Messiah - Isa. 9:6-7

13 David’s Throne Christ now reigning on David’s throne – Acts 2: Cor. 15:25-26, Heb. 1:3, 8; 10:11-13 Our psalm promised, (33) His lovingkindness or faithfulness would not fail – in Christ it has not!

14 David’s Throne Finally, notice Jeremiah 22:30 Spoken of Jehoiachin (Jeconiah), His descendants would NOT prosper sitting on the throne of David in Judah ( cf. Matt. 1:11 )
