It's Jesus in the psalms, bringing gifts up from the grave. Merry Christmas, fam. #biblestudy   #devotional   #spirituality   #psalms  
Just so you’ve got an overview of Psalm 68, for that inevitable moment when I zero in on a single line in this 35-verse behemoth: it’s about God’s strength, his protection of his …

Today's Chocolate Book post has a really long title and neato diagrams. It discusses changing modes of address in worship! It is for the theology students and English majors. #psalms   #devotional   #biblestudy   #god  
Imagine you’re in the kingdom of ancient Israel, singing Psalm 66 with your countrymen, as it would have been sung historically. You sing the opening lines: “Shout joyfully to God, all …

In today's Chocolate Book post, God hunts the most dangerous game. #biblestudy   #devotional   #psalms  
Psalm 64 isn’t the first psalm we’ve seen that devotes a large passage to characterizing evildoers. I’m reminded of Psalm 12, in which David describes liars that he thought he cou…

Which would you rather have for protection: a stone stronghold, or an immaterial being that cannot be detected by your five senses? #biblestudy   #psalms   #devotional   #questionoftheday  
Psalm 62 has a chorus, of sorts. David opens the psalm with the following lines: “My soul waits in silence for God only; From Him is my salvation. He only is my rock and my salvation, My stro…

Today on Chocolate Book: lessons in guts and the use of imperative verbs. #biblestudy   #devotional   #psalms   #spirituality  
Growing up, my brother and I learned to be polite. I was born in Texas, and until the age of eight, I lived in the Carolinas. While I’m glad that my parents refrained from drilling into me th…

Today's Question(s) of the Day on Chocolate Book: Does David go too far in calling for the wicked to be shut down so aggressively? Do you think he wants them to suffer, or just to be prevented from hurting or harming others? Does he fall into the same trap of loving violent vengeance that his enemies embrace?

Check out Psalm 58 and let me know what you think.

#biblestudy   #devotional   #theodicy   #psalms  
Let me lay it down. Verses 1-5, evil people are violent untameable cobras. Verses 6-9, O Lord, please knock their teeth out and make them like miscarriages. Verses 10-11, then the righteous people …

Today on Chocolate Book: comparing the opening verse of Psalm 67 with Numbers 6:24-25, “The Lord bless you, and keep you; the Lord make His face shine on you.” #biblestudy   #devotional   #psalms   #blessings   #spirituality

behold, Chocolate Book post

#biblestudy   #psalms   #forgiveness   #devotional  
Psalm 65 is a song of praise; it praises God first for his blessings toward humankind, especially in the Jewish temple, then for his power in shaping physical geography in mountains and seas, and f…

I'm having a hard time summarizing today's Chocolate Book post without quoting a certain Rolling Stones song in which the guy goes down to the demonstration. You know the one. #biblestudy   #devotional   #psalms   #spirituality  
Yesterday, in Psalm 62, David let us know that when his enemies are out to kill him, he wants his stronghold to be not a tangible, brick-and-stone stronghold, but the invisible, non-physical God of…

In today's Chocolate Book post, I cop to being wrong about towers. #biblestudy   #devotional   #spirituality   #wrong  
You know, I could swear David has described God as a tower before. But no: the Hebrew word for “tower,” migdal, only appears twice in the Psalms. We’ve seen it once before in Psal…

Today's passage from the psalms poses a riddle: how do you “destroy someone that they may be no more” without slaying them? I am, honestly, stumped, and am curious whether you have any ideas how to resolve this apparent contradiction in David's desires. Please read post, make comment. #biblestudy   #devotional   #psalms   #contradiction   #questionoftheday  
The epigraph of Psalm 59 tells us which time that evil men sought David’s life and meant to kill him that he’s writing songs about today. It reads, “when Saul sent men and they wa…

How do you react to pressure? Do you pray? And what do you pray for? Do you, like David in this psalm, pray for God to be glorified? Are you, like David in this psalm, some kind of weirdo?

Chocolate Book post, fam. Check it.

#biblestudy   #devotional   #spirituality   #psalms  
According to the epigraph, Psalm 57 is a psalm of David, written about “when he fled from Saul in the cave.” This reference is vague enough that it might refer to one of two occasions w…
