ncBc Sermon – Psalm 11

This sermon, covering all of Psalm 11 (Psalm 11.1-7), was delivered by Kevin Mitchell, Associate Pastor of North Clackamas Bible Community, on Sunday, May 11th, 2014.

Kevin’s message (a 30-minute video) reminds us why seeking refuge in God and finding satisfaction in God’s face gets at the core of what it means to be a truly righteous person, one doing the kind of righteousness that God loves.

In the video, highlighted annotations include English and Hebrew text.

Psalms Classification

Psalms Classification including sections and notes identifying the five books of the Psalter and smaller sub-collections.

Many attempts to classify the psalms fail to consistently distinguish between categories related by form and categories related by content. These charts give each psalm both a preliminary classification “By Form” (e.g., L, IL, CL, IT, CT, H, A) and “By Content” (wisdom, confidence, repentance, imprecation, kingdom, royal coronation, etc.).

In the PDF, asterisks (*) indicate psalms that illustrate the typical elements of the type; plus symbols (+) indicate psalms of mixed types; question marks (?) indicate less-certain classifications. Grayed blocks indicate sub-collections. “Psalms of David” are in red.

Patterns of Praise: An Introduction to the Psalms

The article Patterns of Praise: An Introduction to the Psalms, with its charts and examples, serves as a quick reference both to reading and studying the Psalms as a whole and as individual psalms.

An introductory chapter focuses on collections, composition, settings, forms, and an approach to the psalms. The remaining three chapters highlight the setting, typical structure, and particular themes of the laments, thanksgivings, and hymns.
