Psalm Tweets: Book IV

I’ve previously posted my list of #psalmtweets from Books II and III of the Psalms. Here’s Book IV.

Psalm Tweets: Book II

Ben Myers (@FaithTheology) has had some very interesting Twitter projects (no, “interesting” and “Twitter” are not mutually exclusive) recently. Following his #canonfodder series of tweets summarizing each book of the Bible, he began #psalmtweets for each of the Psalms. Since I’m reading through the Psalms this year, I thought it would be a good exercise in thinking through the Psalms as I read them.

The book of Psalms is divided into five books (these are usually indicated in modern Bibles). Book I contains Psalms 1-41; Book II, 42-72; Book III, 73-89; Book IV, 90-106; and Book IV, 107-150.

My reading plan (there will be a future post about it) takes me through the Psalms four times this year. When I first saw Ben’s project, I was already at Psalm 41. Thus, I began with Book II of the Psalms; I plan to tweet the psalms each time I go through the book. That way, I can compare what I saw and gleaned in them each time through.
