Marvin Tate’s distinctive commentary traces all the biographical, historical, literary, and practical concepts of these middle psalms and demonstrates how the purpose of each one unfolds. The middle section of the Hebrew Psalter has long been regarded as an inspiring anthology of ancient religious poetry. Within this part of the Sepher Tehillim or Book of Praises, are 11 of the 12 psalms of Asaph (73–83), one of Solomon's two (72), the sole offerings of Ethan (89) and Moses (90), and four of the songs ascribed to the sons of Korah—not to mention the many attributed to David. Organized for easy reference, Word Biblical commentaries make an ideal Bible study companion whether you are studying a single passage or a complete biblical book.

“Thus the struggle for faith in the psalm is more than an individual and personal trial. The testimony is that of ‘those who are pure in heart’ in Israel, i.e., those who are willing to be faithful until they know that Yahweh is good to Israel despite evidence which seems to contradict that assumption. The psalm works in the context of Israel’s faith in Yahweh and should not be reduced to personal experience alone.” (Page 235)
“the Hebrew particle אך appears at three crucial places in the psalm: vv 1, 13, 18” (Page 235)
“Thus Ps 73 is a reflective testimony, not directly instructional but certainly intended to function in that mode” (Page 232)
“remained among those Israelites who were ‘pure in heart,’” (Page 235)
“psalm seems to be a good example of what Miller has called ‘openness to new contexts’” (Page 233)
