Description

The Book of the Psalms  is a unique collection of the song-prayers of Israel. To study Psalms is to study prayer, ultimately to enter into prayer. The study will challenge participants to reflect on their own prayer and life experiences. Psalms I focuses on a selection of twenty-eight psalms divided into three categories:

  • Psalms of Descriptive Praise
  • Psalms of Trust or Confidence
  • Wisdom Psalms

“Psalms of descriptive praise, also known as hymns, praise God for his ongoing, regular care of the world and humanity” (from p. 8 of the commentary). Psalms of trust or confidence reinforce the belief that the God who made and loves us will protect us in difficult situations. Wisdom psalms are an acknowledgment of God’s justice in the right ordering of human affairs.

Psalms II focuses on a selection of twenty-eight psalms divided into three categories:

  • Royal Psalms
  • Psalms of Lament
  • Psalms of Declarative Praise

The royal psalms reflect the belief in ancient Israel that the king was “anointed” by God (i.e. a messiah) to be “the instrument of God’s concern for the people” (from the commentary, p. 79). Psalms of lament express the sorrow of the soul in distress and of the individual’s and the community’s need to turn to God in order to be healed or rescued. Psalms of declarative praise are prayers of thanksgiving that praise God for rescue or healing from dire situations.
