Ancient Psalms, Timeless Truth

Just as there are many different types of literature in the Bible (narrative, poetry, prophecy, letters, etc.), so there are many different types of psalms. Some are praise psalms and they are full of exuberant, joyful praise to the Lord. Lament psalms represent the other end of the spectrum as they contain despairing cries to God for help. We also find wisdom, kingship, confidence, thanksgiving, and remembrance psalms. One of the keys for understanding the psalms is to recognize the different types, and we explore these in this series. The psalms appeal to our minds, our hearts, and our entire lives. They provide a timeless resource for God’s people to use in life and worship. They cover the major themes of God’s Word, and they point us to the central person and hero of the Bible, Jesus Christ.
