Tehilim 28: Seeking Protection and Vengeance Against Duplicitous Evildoers (Part 2)
Show Notes

This evening (4/28/21) in our Tehilim/Tefilah shiur, we attempted to understand the major idea and import of Tehilim 28, and I believe we did just that! We developed our own theory, drawing on a number of points made by the Malbim, and arrived at a consensus on what the perek is about and how we can use it to improve our own tefilos. Next time (בג"ה) we'll learn the Radak, who takes what appears to be a completely different approach than ours.
