David Sings during Trials

Answers Bible Curriculum 2nd Edition Unit 8 Lesson 80

This week in Sunday school, we take some time to briefly review what we’ve seen over the last nine lessons but also address a topic we did not have time to cover previously: psalms that David wrote while running from Saul. We look at two such psalms in our class and ask: how do the historical narratives in the Bible inform the Davidic psalms, and vice versa? What did David seek to communicate in his psalms? And what can we learn from the psalms about singing to God in the midst of trials?

Our main texts for this lesson are Psalm 34:1-22 and Psalm 54:1-7.
