Week 25 Day 6
The Psalms are songs
They are a hymnbook for worship
at the temple in Jerusalem
or anywhere God's people
They were used by the early church
in the New Testament
and down through the ages
They are still being sung today.
Songs touch the heart
and lift the soul
They are a means of bringing us close
to each other
and to God.
The whole range of human emotion
is found in the Psalms.
Many of the Psalms are written
in 1st person
They are devotional
and express confidence
that God will deal faithfully
in the present
just as in the past.
A PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE For the righteous, life is good--not always easy
but definitely good. Psalms 1, 3, 4 & 5
1Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the
ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the
seat of the scornful. 2His delight is in the Law, and he meditates day and night. 3He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit, whose leaf shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
4The ungodly are not so, but are like chaff in the wind.
5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
1Lord, many increase my trouble and rise up against me.
3But you, O Lord, are a shield for me, and lift up my head.
4 I cried to the Lord and He heard me from His holy hill.
5 I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me.
6 I will not be afraid of ten thousands who have set against me.
7Arise, O Lord; save me, O my God!
For You have struck all my enemies on the cheekbone;
You have broken the teeth of the ungodly.
8Salvation belongs to the Lord; blessing is upon Your people.
4Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate on your bed, and be still.
5Offer the sacrifices of righteousness; put your trust in the Lord.
6There are many who say, "Who will show us any good?"
Lord, lift up the light of Your countenance upon us.
7You have put gladness in my heart, more than grain and wine.
8 I will both lie down in peace, and sleep;
For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.
1Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation.
2Give heed to my cry, my King and my God, for to You I pray.
3My voice You shall hear in the morning; I will look up.
8Lead me in Your righteousness because of my enemies;
Make Your way straight before my face.
11Let all those rejoice who put their trust in You;
Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them;
Let those also who love Your name be joyful in You.
12For You bless the righteous; with favor You surround them. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
