Of all of David's remarkable achievements the poetry ascribed to him is the most enduring. From the depths of his soul he was able to give artistic expression to the faith that sustained him. The strength and courage he has imparted to countless millions over a period of 3000 years is perhaps unequaled in history. Is there any poem to compare with "The Lord is my shepherd" (Psalm 23)? Or Psalm 8: "What are human beings that you are mindful of them?" Or the 51st: "Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me?" Or "God is our refuge and our strength" (Psalm 46) To be sure, there is more excitement in the Goliath story (1 Samuel 17), but not as much healing.
