Dr. J. Evan Kreider (Professor Emeritus of Music, UBC) spoke on Psalm 17, a Davidic plea to Yahweh to pay attention and act in justice (1-2; 6-9; 13-15) based on a declaration of faithfulness (3-5) and a lament over the enemies that lurk in ambush like a lion (10-12). The unnamed petitioner poetically wrestles with God, like Jacob’s all-night match in Genesis (32:22-31). While we may try to live in peace, chronic pains or debilitating illnesses may be our enemies rather than people. Evan challenged us to try praying for others using the pattern of this psalm before using it for ourselves. [KH]
