day 55 (trek 2): put a psalm in my heart

We read four psalms today, at three different times of the day, two of them at mid-day, and one each in the morning and in the evening. Psalm 132-135 is what we’re about.

This morning we drink in Psalm 132. Draw a lamp in your Bible’s margin.

“… I will make a horn to sprout for David; I have prepared a lamp for my anointed.” (132.17)

At mid-day we ponder Psalm 133-134. Sketch a bearded face and the word “Lord.”

“It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes!” (133.2)

“Come, bless the Lord, all you servants of the Lord, who stand by night in the house of the Lord! Lift up your hands to the holy place and bless the Lord! May the Lord bless you from Zion, he who made heaven and earth!” (134.1-3)

Tonight we read Psalm 135. Draw several dead stick figures, all of whom are kings.

“He it was who … who struck down many nations and killed mighty kings …” (135.8a,10)
