In between the Apostle Paul’s Second letter to the Corinthians and his letter to the Galatians we read two Psalms and three chapters of Job.
Psalm 60, of David. A Psalm intended for teaching. Even though they were defeated, David gave God the glory for future victories and deliverance.
Psalm 61, of David. As so often happened, David was in trouble and cried out to God, proclaiming his trust in God, singing praises.
Job 17. Job continued praying for relief.
Job 18. Bildad pours it on; the wicked are punished.
Job 19. “I know that my redeemer liveth“.
