The engaging reading of the book of Psalms has provided me boundless interest and ever-growing pleasure; it constrains me to do as the word says in Psalms 96:3, “Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.” I write this article to share with others a portion of the benefit, with the prayer that it may induce them to want to explore and read the word for themselves.


The book of Psalm 1: King James Version (KJV) Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

From these two scriptures, the psalmists desire to teach the way to blessedness and to warn of the destruction of sinners.

Psalm 1: 4-6 King James Version (KJV) 4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6.
