Now author James M. Thomas looks at the songs with new eyes. Beginning with the Authorized King James Version, Thomas explores the people and events of the psalms as well as key words and phrases that reveal the true meaning of each song. Begun as a series of personal Bible study devotions, Thomas explores the significance of each psalm and then closes each study with a brief prayer, asking God to apply the lessons that have been learned. Ruminating on the Psalms, Volume 1 explores Psalm 1 through Psalm 30.This is the first of five volumes on the Book of Psalms as presented in the Old Testament of the Bible. These volumes grew out of a series of personal Bible devotions on the psalms. Each volume contains thirty psalms entries. Each psalm entry is not intended to be an exhaustive analysis of a psalm. Rather, it is an attempt to peal away some of its layers in order to better understand the psalm and its purpose. Each entry begins will the full test of the psalm. This is followed by study notes and then closes with a short prayer, asking God to apply the lessons of the psalm. The psalm text provided in this volume comes from the Authorized King James Version of the Bible, first published in 1611 and now available in the public domain. Words from the Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic languages are periodically included in the notes. These are presented in their English transliteration and styled in italic font.
