Context: All three of today's psalms are written by Asaph, a temple musician. Psalm 75 is a psalm of triumph, a psalm of deliverance from the enemy. Psalm 76 is a prophetic psalm, describing the reign of Jesus Christ, when all nations will bow down and acknowledge Him as Lord. In Psalm 77, Asaph cries out to the Lord in his time of trouble. We are to do the same. The Lord will deliver us, just as He delivered the Israelites from the Egyptians by parting the Red Sea, so too will He part to sea of trouble in our lives. The Lord is always there for us, in good times and in bad.
World History: Jeduthun, for whom Psalm 77 was written, was the chief musician in the Temple.
