Overview the Book of Psalms

Whenever you see "enemy" while reading the psalms, you should think of those temptations toward covetousness or jealousy or pride or ambition within yourself. There is your enemy. We must deal severely with these things. They have no right to live in a Christian's heart, in a Christian's life. They have no right to be honored. This is right in line with what the Lord Jesus told us in the Sermon on the Mount, "If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and throw it away...and if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. " (Matthew. 5:29, 30) Now he doesn't mean to do that literally; he simply means that we are to deal with temptation absolutely ruthlessly. Don't entertain these things at all. And so these ruthless psalms are simply a picture of the way we must deal with the real enemies of the heart of man.
