Psalms Where God Is Called the King

These are psalms wherein God or the Lord is referred to as King.  An example would be “You are my King, O God” (Psalm 44:4) or “The Lord is King forever and ever” (Psalm 10:16).  In addition to the psalm number, the verse number of the specific location of “king” is cited.

This list does not include allusions to God being the king – “For the kingdom is the Lord’s”  (Psalm 22:28; see also Psalm 145:11, 12, 13), nor “the Lord reigns” (Psalm 93:1), nor “Your throne” (Psalm 93:2).  Allusions like these would be entirely appropriate for studying this subject, but would take more time to search out than I have now.

This list can be compared and contrasted with a list of royal psalms (wherein God is mentioned along with a king).
