We have reached the remaining miktamim and the psalms with the inscription 'do not destroy'.
- Psalm 56 is the first of a group of 5 miktamim, reminding us of this form first encountered in Psalm 16.
- Psalm 57 is the first of three consecutive psalms inscribed Do Not Destroy. The fourth is Psalm 75. The second part of Psalm 57 reappears in Psalm 108.
- These psalms are considered so violent that Psalm 58 was omitted (deliberately along with several verses in Psalms 109 and 37) from the Canadian Anglican prayer book of 1958. Psalm 58 closes with the earthling recognizing the judgment of God in the earth.
- Psalm 59, the third inscribed with Do Not Destroy, closes with the knowledge of those who are consumed that God governs in Jacob.
- Psalm 60, the last miktam, is a prayer for the rescue of the beloved. Its second half reappears in Psalm 108 also.
- Psalm 61 contains the appeal to the rock that is higher. Vows surround the promise to the king.
- Psalm 62 reminds us of the language of Psalm 39. Both psalms are inscribed 'for Jeduthun'.
- Psalm 63 is a psalm of joy after so many psalms concerning enemies and futility.
- Psalm 64 is about planning and 'shooting' (the same word as Torah). The plans backfire. The evildoers become their defeat.
- Psalm 65 is the first of three psalms on the subject of harvest.
