Psalm 72 is a prayer for peace. It is eschatological in that it looks prophetically toward the end of history. According to the superscription, it was penned by Solomon. Hence, King Solomon describes the ideal King and His eternal reign over all creation. As modern believers read this psalm they should reflect on the other prophecies regarding King Jesus’ return to establish His Kingdom.
Psalm 71 is written by an aged believer looking back at his life. As he reflects over the trials of his life, he sees his undaunted faith in God. Having looked back, he considers his present situation and circumstances and is confident that his faith will endure and God will continue to be his deliverer.
