Unit IV, Tehillim 35-41
Tehillim 35-41, the last unit in Book I, close both the unit and the entire first book. The spiritual development of the individual is shown in a linear progression through these mizmorim. Once David recuperates from his illness and is saved from his enemies, he works to correct wrongdoings and build the world, internalizing the teachings of the Torah and of Tehillim 1-34, so that he can do God’s will and live a Torah life. As a servant of God, he wants to influence all those listening to be involved in Tikun Olam.
