“The prayers of the Israelites in the midst of captivity and exile reveal a people reflecting seriously upon their predicament and the sins which brought it about.  Confession is a central theme, and hope for deliverance is their prayer.  These Psalms expose the agonizing loneliness of not only these captives but anyone who has ever awakened to the harsh realization that he or she is in spiritual exile.”
