Psalm 5

Psalm 5
The cry of the godly; God’s character appealed to
In Psalm 5 the cry of the godly is presented, and the character of God, as necessarily responding to that of the godly, is appealed to as necessitating His hearing him and judging the wicked. If the godly love godliness, surely Jehovah does; if the godly abhor wickedness, surely He does. It answers to the “righteous Father” of the Lord in John 17: only there the answer was heaven; here, earth- the necessary consequence of the difference of Christ’s position on earth and that of the remnant.
