Welcome to the preview of Your Daily Psalm, a new Alexa Flash Briefing and podcast, where starting on Ash Wednesday, March 6th, 2019 I will bring you a new psalm a day starting with Psalm 1 and moving through to Psalm 150.
The Psalms of course appear in both the Christian and Hebrew bibles. It is essentially a collection of poems, more specifically song lyrics. They cover a wide range of topics from praises, to laments, to celebration of events, thanksgiving, and emotions ranging from doubt and despair, to total faith and celebration! Most of the Psalms provide a unique and thought proviking experience.
As an example, here is a Psalm you likely know very well!
A psalm of David.
The Lord is my shepherd,
I lack nothing.
2 He takes me to lush pastures,
he leads me to refreshing water.
3 He restores my strength.
He leads me down the right paths
for the sake of his reputation.
4 Even when I must walk through the darkest valley,
I fear no danger,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff reassure me.
5 You prepare a feast before me
in plain sight of my enemies.
You refresh my head with oil;
my cup is completely full.
6 Surely your goodness and faithfulness will pursue me all my days,
and I will live in the Lord’s house for the rest of my life.
