oa Conspectus : The Journal of the South African Theological Seminary - Could David have written Psalm 5?
Psalm 5 is one of a number of Davidic Psalms that allude to the Lord's ""house"" and ""temple."" Since Solomon's Temple was built after David's death, critical scholars consider these allusions to the temple as conclusive proof that David could not have authored these psalms. This article demonstrates that, prior to the construction of Solomon's Temple, the terms ""house"" (בַּיִת) and ""temple"" (הֵיכָל) were acceptable terms for alluding to the Tabernacle. Therefore, the conclusion that David could not have written Psalm 5 is unwarranted.
