Words from the Psalms

As I worked on this morning’s post, From Psalm 25, I thought again about the wonderful vocabulary list that can be created from the Psalms. For our series in 2020, I quoted from the King James Version. Over the years, I have read from different Bible translations.

soul

mercies

lovingkindnesses

“Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.”

An old haiku:

Deep calleth unto deep *
filling my heart with hope
greater than my mind

* The first line of my poem is from Psalm 42: 7 (KJV).

new summer season

new summer season
I begin the day
with Psalm 1

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

Psalm 1: 3

“my hope is in thee”

And now, Lord,
what wait I for?
my hope is in thee.

Psalm 39: 7
