I love them all , but some favorites of course would be my name and signature. I mainly love those where David mostly extols the virtues of HaShems Torah, there can't be enough good said about it.


Here's a little bit of Tehillim ( Psalms) trivia.

Did you know that the very first Psalm starts with the name of one of the twelve tribes? Wink

That Psalm 117 is the shortest? with only 15 words ? ( Hebrew)

That Psalm 119 is the longest and is divided into sections starting with all 22 letters of the Alef-bet ( the Hebrew alphabet)


That the book of Psalms is actually five books?

I like the psalms, even when David is being miserable, cos he wrote about real life and the way things are, if you get what I mean. About emotions and the "human condition".

There must be a psalm for every emotion, they are fantastic

Just remember that David did not write them all.

For instance (more trivia) Moshe wrote Pslm 90

Thats a good point, but the ones I'm refering to are where he is in danger of getting killed, the context of what is written sound like they were written by David.

Who ever wrote then, I like a lot of them, cant really pick a favorite as they talk about some many different things that are relevant al different times.

I do like the one, cant remember which one it is that say "you knew me when you knit me together in my mothers womb", I really appreciate it more since I had Zak.

Are you talking about this:

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.

It's 139 and yes, it is a Psalm of David. Smile

Ye thats the one.

I also like like 31v9-24, I read it at a time when I was in a lot of distress, and it really helped me.
