In this article Psalm 37 is viewed hermeneutic-homiletically. The socio-historical context of Psalm 37 is considered. Furthermore, the structure of the Psalm receives attention, as does its posture. Particular emphasis is placed on the term "righteous" as it functions in the Psalm. More specifically, manifestation of the Psalm is traced in the homiletics of H J C Pieterse. The "just man” serves as the sermon's homiletic context within his homiletics, and preaching the gospel to the victims of social injustice stands central to it. This article expresses an appreciation for the valued contribution, particularly in homiletics, that has been made by Pieterse.
