Soul Depths and Soul Heights: An Exposition of Psalm 130
1 in stockCompare
Perhaps the best known of the Penitential Psalm. Psalm 130 contains the ardent prayer of a man who is distressed by a sense of God’s anger against sin; it it, we see an earnest penitent turning to God, longing for forgiveness. But this Psalm is also marked by a steady upward progression: depth; prayer; conviction; light; hope; waiting; watching; longing; confidence; assurance; universal happiness and joy. As a barometer marks the rising of the weather, so each sentence of this Psalm records the progress of the soul.
Octavius Winslow (1808-78) was born in Pentonville, a village near London. He was the eighth of thirteen children. Though he grew up in New York, he spent most of his life in England. Winslow was one of the best-known Nonconformist ministers of the 19th century in England, and held pastorates at Leamington Spa, Bath and Brighton. He was one of the preachers at the opening of Spurgeon’s Metropolitan Tabernacle.
