Forms, Continued

Messianic – These psalms contain important prophecies concerning Messiah. they include: Psalms 2, 8, 16, 21, 22, 24, 40, 45, 72, 110, and 118.
Royal – These are similar to enthronement psalms in that they point to God’s sovereignty and right to rule over His people. The distinction of the royal psalm is that God’s earthly king, either the contemporary king or Messiah, is in view. These psalms draw attention to specific aspects of the reign of God’s king, such as his crowning, his fighting, or the basis of his right to rule, the Davidic covenant. This pattern may be seen in the following: Psalms 2, 18, 20-21, 45, 72, 89, 101, 110, 132, and 144.
