Bible Challenge 07/21 - 07/27

Greetings Ya'll!

How are you doing in Psalms? Psalms has a couple of functions: as a hymnbook and also as a book of poetry. Songs that can be identified as such in the Psalms include songs of thanksgiving (e.g., Ps 30), hymns of praise (e.g., Ps 117) and royal psalms, which may have been used in coronations and weddings. Identification of some psalms as prayers is also seen within the text, for example in the conclusion to Psalm 72, "The prayers of David son of Jesse are ended." The largest category of Psalms, though not grouped as such in the text, is that of lament (expressions of complaint and pleas for help from God).

We finish up the third section of Psalms this week with chapter 89, and begin the fourth section of Psalms (chapters 90-106).

Here is the schedule

21, Sunday: Psalms 67-70

22, Monday: Psalms 71-74

23, Tuesday: Psalms 75-78

24, Wednesday: Psalms 79-82

25, Thursday: Psalms 83-86

26, Friday: Psalms 87-90

27, Saturday: Psalms 91-94

May God add His richest blessings to the reading, the hearing, the understanding and most importantly the living out of His holy word. Amen.
