Mark got the answer correct right there. It's the judgement of wicked (especially the backbiters). It can be both physically contextual to the events in Psalm 37 and also prophetic of the things to come shortly before the 2nd coming of Christ. I know someone else probably know the prophetic context behind this better than myself. In short, there is no rapture for the wicked. The wicked (those of Satan) will not be caught up. The rapture is Christ taking His church (the born again) right before the rapture begins so we (the elect) are not left behind to suffer the wrath of the 7-year tribulation.

I read a preacher once write this:

"Jesus came to earth the first time "TO" His own approximately 2,000 years ago

Jesus is coming at the rapture "FOR" His own

Jesus is coming again at the second coming "WITH" His own"

Satan has no plan of such but to seduce as many to a much fiery end during the tribulation.

The day spoken of in psalm 37:13 is most likely the day of God's judgment of the wicked, not the rapture of the Chirch.

Does this mean there is a rapture of the wicked?

Rebecca, II Samuel 23:1 Now these be the last words of David. David the son of Jesse said, and the man who was raise up on high, the anointed of the God of Jacob, and the sweet psalmist of Israel, said, (vs 2) The spirit of the Lord spake by me, and his word was in my tongue. Revelation 19:10 .....worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy. II Peter 1:21 For the prophecy came not at any time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

The Book of Psalms is a collection of lyrical poems written by a number of authors. The Book was originally entitled, "Tehillim" which, in Hebrew, means 'Praise Songs'. The English title, 'Psalms' originated from the Greek title, 'Psalmoi' & also meant 'Songs of Praise'.

The Psalms became the hymnal of God's people, with its words often set to music, but not always. The Psalms expressed the authors' emotion to God or about Him, and different Psalms were written to communicate the author's feeling & emotions about the situation they might have been experiencing. That's why the Psalms are so treasured through the ages as they often reflect what the person who is reading them might also be going through & also to encourage him to still bless the Lord in spite of the situation.

But to your question: most of the Psalms were written by King David (73 Psalms we know of, maybe more). Asaph wrote 12; Korah 10; Moses 1; King Solomon 2; Ethan & Heman 2 each; the remaining Psalms have not been given their author's names.

If you can, you can read the narrative in the O.T. books that give background to the writing of a particular Psalm. If you have a Study Bible, often a reference will be given in the margin or the notes at the bottom. Otherwise, the internet might also give you help. But to start you off: Read 1 Samuel 19:10.11 & then read Psalm 59; 1 Samuel 21:10-15 with Psalm 56; 1 Samuel 21:10 to 22:2 with Psalm 34; 1 Samuel 22:9 with Psalm 52. This helps to understand the Psalms a little better.

Please tell me who wrote the psalms?

Hello, I believe you answered your own question. Reading God's Word with an open seeking heart builds faith. Also, believing, praying, and applying what you read. God bless!

How can I build up my faith through daily studying of the word?
