“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” “Thy word is a lamp to my feet.” “Search me, O God, and know my heart!” Such phrases leap to mind each time a Christian lifts his heart to God. For many, in fact, the Psalms are the richest part of the Old Testament. Derek Kidner provides a fresh and penetrating guide to Psalms 73–150. He analyses each psalm in depth, comments on interpretative questions and brings out the universal relevance of the texts. He also gives special help on the psalmists’ cries for vengeance. Together with its companion volume (Psalms 73–150) this introduction and commentary will inspire and deepen personal worship.

“God not only sees the invisible and penetrates the inaccessible, but is operative there, the author of every detail of my being.” (Page 502)
“One of the most telling features of this short poem is that it singles out three of our most universal preoccupations—building, security, raising a family—and makes us ask what they all amount to, and to whom we owe them.” (Page 476)
“So the psalm, speaking first to its own times, speaks still. Miracles of the past it bids us treat as measures of the future; dry places as potential rivers; hard toil and good seed as the certain prelude to harvest.” (Page 476)
“For all its vehemence, the hatred in this passage is not spite, but zeal for God.” (Page 504)
“The promise moves on from the pilgrim’s immediate preoccupations to cover the whole of existence. In the light of other scriptures, to be kept from all evil does not imply a cushioned life, but a well-armed one. Cf. Psalm 23:4, which expects the dark valley but can face it.” (Page 468)
