“The Whole Book and All Its Parts”

Far from being simply a collection of subjective reflections by various pious individuals, every part of the Psalter should be viewed as teaching, as divine revelation intended to function as the Lord’s directions regarding what to believe and how to live. Whether it be instruction, praise, lament, thanksgiving, or confession, the whole book and all its parts should be referenced as Yahweh’s inspired teaching, which is the essential significance of the term Torah.
