Bible Challenge 07/20 - 07/26

Greetings All!

All of our reading this week again come from the book of Psalms, finishing up the third section with chapter 89 and dipping into the fourth section from chapter 90.

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).

Here is the schedule:

Sunday, 20: Psalms 63-66

Monday, 21: Psalms 67-70

Tuesday, 22: Psalms 71-74

Wednesday, 23: Psalms 75-78

Thursday, 24: Psalms 79-82

Friday, 25: Psalms 83-86

Saturday, 26: Psalms 87-90

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