1 How long wilt thou forget me, Lord?
Confession & Catechism Explanatory Notes
The Righteous One’s, “Lord, how long?”
David began by bemoaning God’s absence when he was under duress from his enemies. He beseeched God not to delay, and complained that it was taking its toll upon him. Yet once again faith surges, and he remembers that God is merciful, and that his salvation is still a cause of rejoicing. Hence, he could compose and sing this psalm because of God’s bounty.
