Psalms

Details, Please (Part 3)

Some psalms, called “imprecatory,” call for God’s judgment on enemies (see Psalms 69 and 109, for example).  Many psalms express agony of spirit on the writer’s part – but nearly every psalm returns to the theme of praise to God.  That’s the way the book of Psalms ends: “Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord.  Praise ye the Lord” (150:6).
