The Psalms of David Bible Songs
This Daily Bread study of the Book of Psalms will be an independent
study with this one page as an introduction and background of the
book. It is best that you actually read these Psalms yourself as they
are so very inspirational.
We'll start off with a Daily Bread Stick. What is a Psalm, anyway? A
Psalm is a sacred song or poem used in the praising of God. In Greek,
the word Psalms means playing of a harp. King David, who wrote these
Psalms, played the stringed instrument since he was a young boy. He
would sing psalms to God while he was in the fields tending sheep.
King David was called the apple of God's eye by God Himself. Perhaps
one of the reasons was the touching Psalms that he wrote and played
for God. Many of the Christian musicians of the day have picked up on
this Truth and have written some awesome songs honoring and praising

Find yourself some awesome Christian Music on your favorite music app
that you can listen to as to feel what I mean. Perhaps you can
create some music for the Lord too. Or maybe start keeping a journal
of thoughts that you want to share with God as to show your love for
While some Psalms are dedicated solely to the glory of God as almost
all include a note of praise, the collection of Psalms range in
subject from fear to Faith, grief to Grace, judgment to joy, prophecy
to peace, and war to wisdom. You may also notice that in many Psalms,
the very first idea is immediately repeated in different words.
The Psalms of David are kind of like his journal to God, expressing
his praises, questions, weaknesses, gratitude, and everyday life
experiences. If you read about David's life, starting at 1
Samuel, Chapter 16 through the end of 2 Samuel, you'll find that
he wrote many of his Psalms while he was king, and in request of the
Lord's guidance and protection. David was also a Prophet of God and
some of His Psalms were prophecies that he was sharing.

The Psalms of David Bible on Faith
I will now give ya a sneak preview into but one of these awesome
Psalms of David ... David's prophecy of Jesus on the Cross. Psalm
22:16-18 While Jesus was on the Cross, He said "My God, My God,
why hast thou forsaken me" ... There have been many assumptions as to
why Jesus spoke these words but there is only one Truth.
Let us seek the Truth in scripture together, as to avoid deception
and to be set free from any doubts. The exact words
that Jesus spoke on the Cross, were spoken before by the prophet
David, in Psalm
So Jesus was simply quoting Scripture. When Jesus echoed these words,
Jesus was directing the people to this particular scripture to reveal
to them an awesome Truth.
Biblical Psalms Bible Verses of Hope
The Psalms of David Bible Prayers
In the same message within Psalm
22 but in verses 16-18 is the prophecy that Jesus was directing
them to look into. It reveals in verse 16, that David prophesied that
"the assembly of the wicked have enclosed Me they pierced My
hands and My feet." (In other words, the prophecy was
saying that this person would be surrounded by wicked people and they
would crucify Him.)
In verse 17 it says that "I" may tell all of My bones:
they look and stare upon Me. (Meaning this person would not
have any bones broken and the people would look upon Him.) In
verse 18, it says "They part My garments among them, and cast
lots upon My vesture."
This means they will divide the clothing of this person and gamble
for His clothes. Now, we know from Scripture these things never
happened to David. So he is speaking of another. If so, why was he
saying Me, My and I?

The Psalms of David Bible Prophecy
Well, as we all know ... Jesus is the one that these things
actually happened to and it was happening at the time that Jesus
spoke the Words ... "My God, My God, why hast thou forsaken me."
Sooooooo, what Jesus was saying upon the Cross when He said these
words was ... It is Me talking through David in Psalm
22. Sooooo cool huh?
Now stay with me on this as you are about to get a little insight
into Prophecy ... Prophecy is a little strange. Prophecy is God
speaking through man. In
Zechariah 12:10 it says "They shall look upon Me whom they
have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him. Now did ya catch
the person change from Me to Him? As the writer of prophecy
... It is, of course, the prophet speaking or writing, but it
is also just as Jesus said ... It is Me talking. Jesus is the
Word of God (John 1:1
and 1:14). It was Jesus that spoke these Words through all
of the prophets. As He indicated in Isaiah
52:6 ... "Therefore My people shall know My name:
therefore they shall know in that day that I Am He that doth
speak: behold it is I."

The Psalms of David Bible Sacrifice
Again, in Isaiah
48:16 He makes it sooooo clear. "Come ye near unto Me hear
this; "I" have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time
that it was there am "I" ... And now the Lord and His
Spirit hath sent Me." ... Awesome huh?
Not only does Jesus reveal the Truth of the Trinity
by saying The Lord and His Holy
Spirit sent Me but shares with us that He has been from the
beginning, just as the Apostle John revealed and that it is He that
speaks to us in the Word of God (the Bible) as He is the Word of God.
In all prophecy, including the prophetic answer to Why did Jesus say
why hast Thou forsaken Me on the Cross, dying for the sins of those
looking upon Him and even our sins today, Jesus was saying what He
has from the beginning to those that could understand ...
It Is Me!
Since there are 150 Psalms in the Bible, you can read a Psalm or two
each day, and in no time, you'll have read them all and I suggest ya
read em often as to know some of them by heart.

The Psalms of David Bible Quotes
You'll also start relating them to your own life, and when different
trials arise, you'll find it comforting to read the Psalms of David
and know that even God's anointed (Chosen) went through trying times,
and they'll teach you a new way of prayer as well.
Some Psalms are in story form and some go back as far as Creation.
You may recognize that you've sung many verses from Psalms in hymns
and even contemporary Christian music throughout the years and never
knew they were from Psalms.
When you read them, I encourage you to acquire a fondness for the
16th century language used in the translation of the Bible from
Hebrew to English. It has an eloquence that can't be matched, if
you'll open your heart to it.
