Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 38 – 41
Verse of the Day: Psalm 41:13 – “Blessed be Jehovah, the God of Israel, From everlasting and to everlasting. Amen, and Amen.”
Each of the books inside the Psalms ends with a doxology (jubilant praise) and often includes the double “Amen.” The picture is that as one travels through each of these “books” they close with jubilant praise to God.
This book one begins with a blessing pronounced upon the righteous and ends with the righteous blessing God. Two different Hebrew words are translated as blessed. In verse 1 the word refers to the person being blessed, and the word used in this doxology speaks of the source of the blessing.
This book begins with the righteous person receiving the blessing and ends with the people praising the One who provides the blessing.
Prayer: Majestic Righteous Lord of all, I lift my voice in praise for all the blessings You have given to me. I exalt You! I magnify Your Name. I bow humbly before You. Amen and Amen!!
