This beautiful psalm shows how spontaneous praise, singing, and dancing follows from the ordeal of sin and renewal. Perhaps if we do not emphasize the need for forgiveness of sin, people will not sense the need, and so there will be no confession, and if none, how can there be the celebration for restoration? This was seen to be so important that Psalm 30 became the dedication psalm for the building of the temple. The images of this psalm need to be considered in detail.
Third in a series of six lectures in which Dr. Ross addresses music, singing, liturgy, and worship as illustrated and revealed in the Psalms. Building on the foundation of a particular Psalm, further insight is gained from other passages in both the Old and New Testaments, culminating in the derivation of principles for practice in worship today.
