Inhaltsangabe: Finally there is a true road-map to the wisdom of the psalms, with the first ever detailed index, classifying each of the 150 psalms within four meaningful categories (theme, purpose, mood, and for whom intended).
Equally important, its lyrical but modern English translation (with each psalm beginning on a new page and each verse centered for readability) is geared to engage one's heart--to inspire, to help one find solace, or as an aid to receive a new awareness. And with a biography of David and a chapter that describes the events that resulted in the composition of 19 psalms, readers should gain a very important perspective not always obvious: how despite tremendous adversity, David always retained his faith.
"Steve Rosner has captured the universal and modern meanings of the psalms in his compelling new book, A Guide to the Psalms of David. The reader will find inspiration and wisdom for today's complex world in a brilliantly expressed interpretation of the 3000 year-old text." Bob Turner, Former U. S. Representative, NY 9th Congressional District
The heavens testify to the Glory of God
And the firmament proclaims His handiwork.
Day after day reveals His word
And night after night reveals His wisdom.
Yet there is no speech; there is no language.
Their voice is not audible.
Rather, His Grandeur emerges throughout all the world.
Their words are manifestations to the ends of the earth.
In their midst He has set a tent for the sun,
Which is like a groom emerging from his bridal canopy;
Li ke a strong man running his course joyfully;
Rising from one end of heaven
And t raversing the sky to the other end.
Nothing is hidden from its warmth.
The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul.
The testimony of the Lord is undeniable, making the simple one wise.
The statutes of the Lord are just, causing the heart to rejoice.
The commandments of the Lord are pure, enlightening the eyes.
The fear of the Lord is virtuous, enduring forever.
The precepts of the Lord are true and altogether righteous.
They are more pleasing than gold--
Yea, even pure gold--
Sweeter than honey and the nectar of the honeycomb.
Your servant is careful to observe them,
For in keeping them the reward is great.
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart
Be acceptable to You, Oh Lord,
My Rock and my Redeemer.
Inhaltsangabe: The Psalms of David, "in sublimity, beauty, pathos, and originality, or in one word, poetry, are superior to all the odes, hymns, and songs in any language." -John Adams in a letter to Thomas Jefferson. Although typically thought of as hymns of praise to God, the psalms are so much more. They are invoked to bless, as well as to curse; to comfort and instruct; to lament and inspire. The psalms praise, plead, instruct, reflect, recount, and chastise. In tone, they span the gamut of human emotions from ecstasy to despair, indignation to remorse, grief to relief, fear to awe, and rage to love. They talk about the rewards of righteousness, the pitfalls of evil, the grandeur of the universe, and the corruption of mankind. They look forward to Messianic times, backward to Creation. In metaphors and poetry unsurpassed, The psalms depict God's Might and His Benevolence; God's Judgment and His Compassion; God's Glory and His Righteousness. In short, The Psalms are a fabulously rich gold mine whose ore has not been extracted for lack of tools. With its unique taxonomy classifying all 150 psalms within four major categories, A Guide to the Psalms of David rectifies that major shortcoming and makes the psalms accessible to the English-speaking public of all races, religions, and creeds-indeed, to any human who can benefit from their wisdom and guidance. That, and a translation which engages the reader emotionally, should prove a resource for an individual who is suffering or directionless-to find solace, gain wisdom, receive a new awareness or be transformed, resulting in healing and/or reconsideration of personal ethics-to be more inclined toward "clean hands and a pure heart." "Steve Rosner has captured the universal and modern meanings of the psalms in his compelling new book, A Guide to the Psalms of David. The reader will find inspiration and wisdom for today's complex world in a brilliantly expressed interpretation of the 3000 year-old text." -Bob Turner, U. S.
