Book of Psalms 113-120 He will bless them that Fear the LORD

Psalms 113-120

Couldn't the entire book of psalms be condensed into psalm 117?   Maybe have one more for asking God to kill the people you don't like.
Psalm 119 is ridiculously long.

Nothing really interesting here other then that.  For some reason the generic praises of first two psalms made me chuckle. My atheism must be acting up.

Psalm 116 has an odd line.
"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints."  Comments?


  1. Psalm 119, in addition to being ridiculously long, is an acrostic.

  2. @anagory,

    That's pretty cool. Learn something new every day. Thanks for sharing that.

  3. It isn't the only acrostic psalm. A list is

    psalm 9 and 10 combined
    psalm 25
    psalm 34
    psalm 37

    psalm 111
    psalm 112
    psalm 119
    psalm 145

  4. Psalm 118 is important too. It's the halfway point of the bible!!
