The faithful God is my Protector: Psalm 59
The psalm consists of eight strophes, spread over three main sections, that is, verses 2—5a, 5b—11 and 12—18. The last two main sections are parallel, yet in such a way that strong contrasts are emphasized in order to articulate the message, the main thrust being that the Lord is the faithful Protector, the One who is in control of the whole earth and in whom the believer can trust.
