The Structure of Poetry

The Structure of Hebrew Poetry Before we begin to analyze specific Psalms, we need one more post about reading. It would be impossible to properly understand how the language of a Psalm works without some introductory understanding of the structure of Hebrew poetry. Poetry is a feature in many books of the Old Testament, found throughout Job, in Jonah 2, and in many of th...

Poetry in Motion

The Psalms are poems. As such, they are rhythmic, they are evocative, and at times, they are difficult to understand. I read a lot of poetry, and believe me, the Psalms are astoundingly good poems. However, I don’t know many people who read or enjoy poetry. This isn’t the place to teach reading poetry, and I wouldn’t be qualified to teach such a thing, bu...

An Invitation

The Psalms make up the ancient hymn book of the people of God. The language of the Psalms is rhythmic and its imagery is powerful. However, the Psalms are more than simple songs of devotion. Many books of the Bible provide great detail about the events and theological beliefs of God's people, and although the Psalms do this as well, they stand out among the rest of Scri...

I've had many chats about re...

Second Chances

Going through the book of Jonah has been so refreshing and encouraging. I never before realised what a book of hope this short book of the Bible is! Sunday morning, I wasn't feeling refreshed and encouraged when I arrived to help set up for church. Some difficult events in my week had left me thinking God was repaying me for some sins (what a blatant lie of the enemy!). L...
