READING THE BIBLE IN 52 WEEKS
PSALMS 107-120 BOOK 5 (Part 1)
On September 5, 2012, we will continue the study of the Book of Psalms, with our lesson on the first part of Book 5, Psalms 107-120. The Psalms was known in Hebrew as the Tehillim which meant “praise songs.” In the Greek, they were called “Psalmoi” which meant “songs to accompany stringed instrument.” The Book of Psalms is the longest book in the Bible with 150 chapters and they can speak to your every situation!
The Book of Psalms is divided into five books or divisions. Those books or divisions are: Book 1 (1-41); Book 2 (42-72); Book 3 (73-89); Book 4 (90-106); and Book 5 (107-150). Each book or division of Psalms ends with a benediction.
Remember: THREE-A-DAY IS THE EASIEST WAY! There are 1,189 Chapters in the Bible and to read the whole Bible in 52 Weeks, one must read an average of 3.25 Chapters every day!
