Book of Psalms 144-150 Makes Me Nostalgic for Numbers!

Psalms 144-150

Thank the gods we're done with the psalms!  A nice, if not boring book to read once but I wouldn't want to make a return visit.

What have we learned from this book?  Beats me.  Do you have any insight for me?

I'm looking forward to the Book of Proverbs.  I don't think I've ever read any of it and hope it will have some little nuggets of wisdom aside from the praising.  I hope I'm not getting my hopes up.

  1. @Bruce,

    I guess you would expect this from me, but i am reading Psalms to my son, reading it in my Bible study group on Monday, and reading it with this group. I really enjoy the Psalms. :-) And I'm not joking.

  2. I've been ear-wormed in that last batch - half a dozen connections to the really stirring hymns of my childhood (Hymns Ancient and Modern, for anybody who used that), and I'm going to have half a dozen of those in my head All Day. All Hail The Power, and Holy, Holy, Holy, and hymns like that, which I like much better than the modern ones.

    But yes, Bruce, I'm with you. Ready to move on, and that would have been twice as interesting at half the length.

  3. I agree Bruce - I'm glad that that's something I never have to do again. I've started on Proverbs and they are sorta fun, actually. A nice change from the preceding 150! (who thought that was a good I idea??) chapters.

  4. I just didn't have time, so I listened to the 2nd half of psalms online.
