Psalms book 4: Wandering songs for the travels and travails of life

735 views

Published on

Songs for wandering (even at times through the valley of the shadow of death) led by the good shepherd, the King, having a table prepared in the presence of my enemies. Book 4 of the psalms begins with a voice from the deep past and a prayer of Moses. Moses prays "Teach us to number our days" and this book many consider poetically to match the themes of Numbers which recounted the wanderings in the dessert for forty years.

The Center of book 4 are the enthronement Psalms, by tradition one or more have been written by Hezekiah Adjacent images of Psalms 23 (the good shepherd leading believers through the valley of the shadow of death, spreading a table in the presence of their enemies) and Psalm 24 (the king of glory) come back expansively in book 4 with shepherd images bracketing calls to worship the king who reigns. Psalms 93 though 100

The ending include a series of Psalms quoted in the book of Hebrews as part of an argument that Jesus is better than the angels: Psalm 102, 103 and 104.

The final two Psalms are historical Psalms 105 and 106 ( the only other Psalm ususally classified as a history recounting (historical) Psalm is 78 from book 3.

We are concerned here with the flow of thought and the outline

  • Personally I would choose her over any of the therapists I have seen over the years that I was willing to pay $25+ an hour for. You get the help from a person who has been there and done that, and you also get the opportunity to be social with a group of ladies who are right there with you. Two things I think are extremely important. ♣♣♣ http://t.cn/A6Pq6KF6
