    I try to start my day with 141 and 143 among others. Good for keeping my mouth shut and trying to walk the right way.

      I really try not to say negative things on IQfy but it can be really trying sometimes. Here is your (You).

      When does the "Good Book" gets good?
      I have tried to read the bible (king solomon version) but its really fricking boring.
      Once the creation part in Genesis is over, it only recites the names of Adam and Eve's numerous descendants and how many years old they were when they died. That name reciting goes forever.

      Try reading NT first, then loop back to OT.

      I feel very basic, my favorite psalm is 23. I'm trying to read through them all by reading 4 everyday sort of a random number. I was told to "pray the psalms" but im not sure what that looks like.

      23 has some incredible depth but also lots to enjoy and get out of it on a prima facie level.
      The 150 aves of a rosary are a substitute for reciting all 150 psalms. The Catholic rosary has that preamble of creed, Lord’s Prayer, 3 aves, Glory be. I’ll recite psalms 23, 51 and 91 instead of the aves. These were actually the first three I memorized and have been adding to it over time.

      A brainless statement. I'm amazed it gets regurgitated so much around here. You're an Asiatic, no doubt.

      That's why it's boring. You're reading a translation that doesn't even exist, and you expect it to be fun?

        Give me a fun translation then. I heard that King Solomon's version was the definitive way to read the bible

          Try the KJV. It's kind of an obscure translation, so I don't think you've ever heard about it. It's a lot less famous than the King Solomon's version which is the definitive way to read the bible, but you should try it. It's a hidden gem.

      Look up King James bible read by Max McLean on Youtube and thank me later. But yeah large parts of the pentateuch are honestly almost unreadable. Numbers, especially, is insanely dull and repetitive.

      The Psalms are usually praises so directing them towards God in utters or into yourself, would be worship towards God

      I was listening to the Psalms (Scorby audiobook) and Psalm 23 was the one that made me stop and say "wow" even though I read it before

      btw this is nice too (Deuteronomy 28:12):
      >The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.
      peace!

    70% of the Psalms is just israelites seething about their enemies in an antiquated way. It's hard to find Psalms that are relatable.

    My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

    O my God, I cry in the day time, but thou hearest not; and in the night season, and am not silent.

    But thou art holy, O thou that inhabitest the praises of Israel.

    Our fathers trusted in thee: they trusted, and thou didst deliver them.

    They cried unto thee, and were delivered: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded.

    But I am a worm, and no man; a reproach of men, and despised of the people.

      All they that see me laugh me to scorn: they shoot out the lip, they shake the head, saying,

      He trusted on the Lord that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him.

      But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother's breasts.

      I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother's belly.

      Be not far from me; for trouble is near; for there is none to help.

        Many bulls have compassed me: strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.

        They gaped upon me with their mouths, as a ravening and a roaring lion.

        I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.

        My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

        For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet.

        I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me.

          They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

          But be not thou far from me, O Lord: O my strength, haste thee to help me.

          Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog.

          Save me from the lion's mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the oxen.

          I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.

          Ye that fear the Lord, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.

          For he hath not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; neither hath he hid his face from him; but when he cried unto him, he heard.

            My praise shall be of thee in the great congregation: I will pay my vows before them that fear him.

            The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the Lord that seek him: your heart shall live for ever.

            All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.

            For the kingdom is the Lord's: and he is the governor among the nations.

            All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship: all they that go down to the dust shall bow before him: and none can keep alive his own soul.

            A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

            They shall come, and shall declare his righteousness unto a people that shall be born, that he hath done this.

            The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

            He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

            He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

            Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

            Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

            Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

    reminds me that one of the "innovations" of the Benedictines was that you had to sing all the Psalms in a week
    some newbies complained to which St. Benedict replied "you realize that in other orders they have to sing ALL the psalms DAILY?!"

      >Spending his final days in prayer and repentance, he requested the penitential Psalms of David be hung on his walls so he could read them and upon which led him to "[weep] freely and constantly" according to Posiddius' biography
      can't find the source but from what I remember, at the Siege of Hippo, Saint Augustine's house was one of the only ones spared of fire or devastation
