Every emotion of the heart is reflected in the Psalms with words that express our deepest and strongest feelings. They provide comfort and joy, leading us to the place where worship flows. This poetry on fire is divided into five books, mirroring the five books of Moses that form the first few books of the Old Testament. Together they convey the depth of our longing and fears, joys and celebration, becoming a mirror to the heart of God's people in our quest to experience God's presence.
The Third Book of Psalms, called the Leviticus Psalms, is similar to the others in that it is an anthology of poems worshipping and petition the Lord. These ones, however, pivot around the themes of praise and God's house, and God's glory and grandeur. Some proclaim the glory of God's holy house, emphasizing how life-giving, joyful, and wonderful it is to celebrate the Lord there. Others exalt the name of the Lord, praising him for his justice, awe-inspiring power, wonderful works, mercy, and truth. Still others appeal to this God of justice and mercy for help overcoming injustice, comfort during distress, and rescue from trouble.
We have designed this study to help you explore these praises and prayers placed inside poems that spill out of a fiery, passionate heart. May this study of poetry on fire free you to become a passionate, sincere worshipper, and experience the heart of God anew in faith and worship.
