Psalm 27: The LORD Is My Light and My Salvation

This is another psalm with a simple not “of David”. It’s interesting that this is three in a row that don’t even have “Psalm” at the start of it. Not that it’s a big deal, but the inconsistency with which these notes were added trouble me in a literary way.  It’s not a big deal or anything, it just hits me in that same grammar … Continue reading Psalm 27: The LORD Is My Light and My Salvation

Psalm 24: The King of Glory

Another “Psalm of David”, written by or about him or using his music. There’s no other note or accompaniment with this one. Psalm 24 1The earth is the LORD’s and the fullness thereof,a the world and those who dwell therein, 2for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers. 3Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall … Continue reading Psalm 24: The King of Glory

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Review: This was an interesting book that didn’t turn out to be at all what I expected. One night, Mia Dennett enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn’t show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. At first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of … Continue reading The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Psalm 21: The King Rejoices in the LORD’s Strength

This one also has me on edge. It’s quite the celebratory “Psalm of David” but this time it has a battle tone to it that is a little intimidating. Psalm 21 1O LORD, in your strength the king rejoices, and in your salvation how greatly he exults! 2You have given him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah 3For … Continue reading Psalm 21: The King Rejoices in the LORD’s Strength

Psalm 20: Trust in the Name of the LORD Our God

I like this psalm better than the last we looked at. It’s another Psalm of David, but this one is more celebratory. This one feels like it’s a blessing upon a new baby or something. Psalm 20 1May the LORD answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob protect you! 2May he send you help from the sanctuary … Continue reading Psalm 20: Trust in the Name of the LORD Our God
