In David's song of thanksgiving for deliverance, he invites believers to come and learn what it means to fear God. He explores the themes of controlling the tongue, putting off evil, and pursuing good as means towards fearing God.
Psalm 34 is a song of thanksgiving for undeserved deliverance. According to the superscription, this psalm was written when David feigned insanity to escape from Abimelech. Abimelech is a dynastic title for Achish the king of Gath. Though David played the part of a maniac, he attributed his deliverance from Achish to the Lord. In response, David affirmed God’s goodness and called upon the people of God to praise Him for deliverance.
According to the superscription of Psalm 30, this is a psalm of David written for the dedication of the house. The title refers to David’s dedication of the tabernacle after the numbering of the people. Following his repentance and God’s judgment, David brought the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem and set it in the Tabernacle. Out of David’s experience, he penned Psalm 30, a song of deliverance and dedication. God chastened David because of his sin. After repenting, David praised God that His anger was temporary and His favor is forever.
