Wisdom and Instruction

1.  Multiple choice: According to Psalm 51, what aspect of the psalmist's salvation had to be restored  before he could teach transgressors the ways of the Lord?
(a) Joy of salvation; (b) peace of salvation; or (c) assurance of salvation.

(a) Joy of salvation (Psalm 51) was written as a confession of David's sin with Bathsheba. In it we discover how devastating sin is to the physical body.

2. Question: According to Psalm 53, how many are there who do good?

None (Psalm 53: 1,3 ) Paul uses this verse in Romans 3:12 to show that all are guilty before God. No one can stand in his or her own works.

3. Fill in the blank: The psalmist expresses the godly attitude toward life in Psalm 56, when he states, "In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can ---do to me?

"Man" (Psalm 56:11 ).
