Psalm 119 Tweets

In my reading plan through the New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs, I divided up Psalm 119 into four days’ reading. The psalm is divided into 22 8-verse sections, where each verse in a section begins with the same letter of the Hebrew alphabet. For the #psalmtweets, I wrote one tweet per section.

As with the other #psalmtweets (Books II, III, and IV), the purpose is to condense the truth of the psalm into a memorable, tweet-length summary, to draw out a particular image or metaphor in the text, or both. The goal behind the exercise is to help me to better understand the psalm and to make it stick in my mind better. I’ll be going through the Psalms four times this year, and the plan is to tweet the Psalms each time through. Then, as the year progresses, I can look back to see the riches of Scripture I’ve been shown.
