1 Review

Among the best known and most quoted books of the Old Testament, the Book of Psalms contains some 150 hymns of praise, prayers of crisis, and songs of faith once attributed solely to the Biblical King David. It is now believed that this collection of poems, originally chanted or sung with instrumental accompaniment, reflects Israel's entire history from the period of the exodus (13th century B.C.) to the postexilic restoration (after 600 B.C.), and we cherish them as the expressions of faith of many generations and many peoples. The Book of Psalms is shared by all sections of Judaism and Christianity, and is fundamental to both Christian and Jewish liturgies. Its English translation in the King James Version of the Bible (1611), from which this edition is reprinted complete and unabridged, is an exceptionally beautiful and stirring one, long regarded as a classic of English literature.

The Book Of Psalms
One of the most beautiful, inspirational and deep longing to be with Lord Jesus. I pray the Psalms as did King David and his son Solomon, whom, also contributed to the writings of
the Book of Psalms, such as the Song of Songs. Proverbs is the Book filled with God's wisdom and Psalms is filled with the Lord's Prayers. I love Him so very much more than life itself. Thank you Father for your WORD, THE HOLY BIBLE. I LOVE YOU. DIONE. I WISH THAT I COULD WRITE A PSALM TO LORD JESUS SHOWING MY LOVE FOR HIM.
