For example, when I simply read of his flight from Saul, I may manage to put some distance between David and myself. To recite his psalm on that occasion, however, places my feet directly into David’s sandals. I am no longer safe from the machinations of Saul! David’s words become my script: “The sorrows of the nether world surrounded me, the snares of death confronted me” (Psalm 17 :5; 2 Samuel 22:6). In praying this psalm, I assume the voice of David. I take on—in dramatic form—the character of that persecuted just man, and I identify myself with the Suffering Servant, of whom David was a prefiguration—the Man who “made peace through the blood of His cross” (Colossians 1:20).
To enter into the prayer of this book is not merely to share the sentiments of King David, or Asaph, or one of the other inspired poets. Indeed, in a theological sense the voices of these men are secondary, hardly more important than our own. The foundational voice of the Psalms, the underlying bass line of its harmony is, rather, the voice of Jesus Christ, the only Mediator between God and man. The correct theological principle for praying the psalms is the Hypostatic Union, the ontological and irreversible coalescence of the human and the divine, “the synthesis achieved by God, which carries the name of Jesus Christ” (Hans Urs von Balthasar).
In praying this psalm, I assume the voice of David. I take on—in dramatic form—the character of that persecuted just man, and I identify myself with the Suffering Servant, of whom David was a prefiguration—the Man who “made peace through the blood of His cross” (Colossians 1:20). When I recite the lines of this psalm, in short, its reference is not reduced to the things that happen to be going on in my individual life. I am playing a part, rather, in the larger and transforming drama of redemption.
