If you are reading through The Daily Bible with us, you have reached a changing point in the daily readings. Up till now we have read in chronological order, as much as possible, from the beginning of creation to King David and his son Solomon, who is soon to be king. Over the next three weeks we will go through most of the Psalms. The Psalms that can be traced to future events will be presented when that event is occurs chronologically.

Many of the Psalms were written by David before he became king. He was King Saul’s personal musician to sooth Saul’s spirit when he was tormented in the spirit. David was truly a gifted songwriter and musician as well as warrior and king. He was not a perfect man, he has a pure heart exhibited in his actions and the psalms. Take joy as we dive into the Psalms. As David writes in Psalm 5: Let all who take refuge in you be glad, let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. For surely, O Lord, you bless the righteous, you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
