The Psalms

سلام لكم في هذا اليوم

I love the Psalms. They're my favorite part of the Bible, except possibly John's four books. It's probably because, no matter what I'm going through, there's a Psalm for it. And anyway, who can't love passages like these?

"The Lord is m light and my salvation: whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?"
(Psalm 27:1)

"The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him."
(Psalm 28:7)

"I will love thee, O Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust: my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies."
(Psalm 18:1-3)

"For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now will I arise, saith the Lord; I will set him in safety from him that puffeth at him. The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation forever."
(Psalm 12:5-7)

Yes, there are many great verses in the Bible that aren't contained in Psalms. But I love Psalms nontheless. Because it is beautiful.

I definitely agree with you - I love the Psalms! They show how great, powerful, loving, and merciful our God is!

I love reading through and applying the verses to my personal life. God always has a special treasure in store for me! :)
