Psalm 6 “Sheminith.” The title to this Psalm sets us up for its direction. The Psalm was to be accompanied with string instruments and played in “Sheminith,” the lowest octave. Reading the Psalm, David was certainly low. He was weeping and vexed, very upset. People were after him, and he was not too sure if God might not be after him too. David’s response is text-book: he goes to God with all of it. When we pray, let’s not hold back, but pour it all out to God (high or low). The biggest thing will be to then trust Him with it (v9). -PB
