-Theme: God is all powerful and to be feared above all others in Israel and the world. The kings of the earth fear Him and will be brought under His subjection. He will save the humble of the earth. Hostility towards God and His people gives the opportunity for Him to do great deeds of glory. Make vows to God and fulfill them. Bring Him the gifts He deserves.
-Historical Insight: This Psalm was written by Asaph for the choir director on stringed instruments. This more than likely paralleled the reign of King Hezekiah in Judah as a celebration song of the defeat of Sennacherib’s Assyrian army after the siege of Jerusalem (2 Kings 18:13-19, 37).
-*Application* God turns the table on evildoers and brings good out of tribulations and trials. Stay humble in your desperate times and seek out the favor of the all-powerful King of the Universe. He will vindicate all your righteous deeds as you surrender to His authority in your life.
