I WILL PRAISE THE LORD FOR HE IS WORTHY FOR HIS MERCIES ENDURE FOREVER
Psalm 128:2 You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.
The Book of Psalms consists of 150 songs and prayers which are referred to individually as psalms and referenced by chapter and verse.
Each has a poetic character with frequent use of parallelism.
In addition to the title of the collection, which translates as "song" or "hymns" from both Hebrew and Greek, many of the Psalms provide musical references and some direction, in some cases even references to melodies that have been well-known.
The Book of Psalms was written by a man greatly loved of God, David.
He was both king and prophet, and this is reflected in all that he wrote.
Great was this man that God has promised that he will be resurrected to rule once more over all the Tribes of Israel.
Jesus Christ saw him as one of the fathers, and was unashamed to refer to Himself as the Son of David.
David had the very heart and mind of Jesus Christ.
Luke states in the Book of Acts: Acts 13:22 "After removing Saul, he made David their king.
He testified concerning him: `I have found David son of Jesse a man after my own heart; he will do everything I want him to do." There are not too many people today that can claim they have done everything that God wants them to do. David, however, was such a man.
1Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power.
2Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.
4Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs.
5Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals.
6Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD.
