Study Guide – Psalm 118:2-4



2 Let all Israel repeat:

“His faithful love endures forever.”
4 Let all who fear the Lord repeat:
“His faithful love endures forever.” NLT

What line does the writer want repeated? Take a moment to repeat this line yourself.


Slowly now— Go through each word of this line and describe the rich meaning and interwoven themes.


Who are the people mentioned verses 2-3? What is their story?


Who are the people mentioned in verse 4? Could you be included in this list?


We often think of our relationship with God as being a very personal thing. But the writer of this psalm wants all of these extra people to participate in his recognition of God. Why do you think this was important enough to him that he would invite others?



In the next 24 hours, take opportunities to help others recognize the Lord’s goodness. With this in mind, who will you see today that you could invite to walk alongside you in your relationship with God? Take a moment to pray about this.
