King James Version

Or read thePsalm of the day!

" Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish."

What are Psalms?

The book of Psalms is a book from the Old Testament that is made up of religious songs or sacred poems that are meant to be sung. Psalms begins the third and last section of the Hebrew Bible’s canon, known as the Writings (Hebrew Ketuvim).

Hundreds of years went into compiling the Book of Psalms. It contains five psalm collections (religious songs and prayers) composed by a variety of authors, including Moses and King David.

Songs of praise and adoration, petitions for God’s protection and forgiveness, and prayers asking justice and the punishment of wrongdoers all appear in the Book of Psalms. Some were written for exceptional occasions like the King’s accession (Psalm 2 & Psalm 110), a royal wedding (Psalm 45), or a victory celebration (Psalm 45). (Psalm 18).

Q&A

Common questions about Psalms

The Psalms are significant because they demonstrate that prayer can take many forms.

It’s easy to get into a prayer habit without the help of Psalms, where you feel like you’re repeating yourself. And often feeling as if God isn’t listening to your prayers.

The Psalms provide us with the tools we need to approach prayer in a new way. They let us recognize that we’re not the only ones who think God is quiet while we pray, or who suffer enormous sorrow and perplexity when praying.

The Psalms provide us with opportunities to rejoice in prayer, bend in worship, and praise God for all that he does and all that he has given us.

There are more authors in the book of Psalms than in any other book of the Bible. The following are the writers and the psalms attributed to them:

  • David (75 total psalms)
  • Asaph (and family) (12 psalms)
  • The sons of Korah (11 psalms)
  • Heman (1 psalm, with the sons of Korah)
  • Solomon (2 psalms)
  • Moses (1 psalm)
  • Ethan the Ezrahite (1 psalm)
  • Anonymous (the 48 remaining psalms)

Scholars further point out that the psalms attributed to David may have begun with David or been linked with him, but they may also have included contributions from others. At least eight authors are identified, with the possibility of more anonymous contributors.

The Psalms were written during a 1000-year period. The majority of the Psalms were composed between 1010 and 930 BC, during David’s and Solomon’s reigns. Psalm 90 is the earliest psalm, composed by Moses in 1500 BC. In 450 BC, Ezra was most likely the work’s final editor.

No. David wrote most of the Psalms, but not all of them. Other authors include Asaph, the sons of Korah, Heman, Solomon, Moses and Ethan the Ezrahite

David is noted as the author of these Psalms: 3—9; 11—32; 34—41; 51—65; 68—70; 86; 101; 103; 108—110; 122; 124; 131; 133; and 138—145.
