The Psalms of the Return (Book V, Psalms 107-150): Studies in the Psalter, IV

Cover
A&C Black, 01.04.1998 - 354 Seiten
Book V of the Psalter (Psalms 107-150) divides into three, with the Songs of the Ascents (120-134) as the central section, and the first and third units following parallel structures (historical, Davidic, alphabetical, Hallel psalms). The units are all compositions of the Return period: 107-119 for the reconstruction of the Temple, 120-134 for Nehemiah's wall-building, 135-150 for Ezra's mission. Psalms 120-134 follow the episodes of Nehemiah's 'memoir', in order. All three groups show evidence of evening-morning alternation, and were intended for festal use: 107-118 at the Passover of Ezra 6, 120-134 at the Tabernacles of Nehemiah 12, 135-150 at Ezra's Tabernacles (Neh. 8).

Seite 113 - They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.
Seite 71 - My soul waiteth for the Lord more than they that watch for the morning: I say, more than they that watch for the morning.
Seite 256 - Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust : cause me to know the way wherein I should walk ; for I lift up my soul unto thee.
Seite 43 - Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers : The snare is broken, and we are escaped.
Seite 46 - Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children: and, lo, we bring into bondage our sons and our daughters to be servants, and some of our daughters are brought into bondage already: neither is it in our power to redeem them; for other men have our lands and vineyards.
Seite 31 - The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.
Seite 81 - We will go into his tabernacles: We will worship at his footstool. 8 Arise, O LORD, into thy rest; Thou, and the ark of thy strength. 9 Let thy priests be clothed with righteousness ; And let thy saints shout for joy.
