Book 1 (Ps.1-41)

Brotherly Love -—Corresponds with the book of Genesis.
This group of Psalms relates to the Book of Genesis. From the perfection of those who are blessed by God we are led to the Salvation of the Lord. Along the way we see the consequences of man’s fall from God and his need for redemption. We see the depravity of man, and how great the love of God is towards the sinner, David asks, “What is man” that God should pay any attention to him? (Psalm 8). The divine name that is mainly used within this section is Jehovah (LORD). Every kind of emotion is revealed in these Psalms; from suffering and sorrow to joy and praise. The psalmist praises God for His justice and love in all of His dealings with man. Psalm 1 sets the scene for this book, that is, the man blessed by God is the one who is obedient to His word, while the sinner rejects it and receives His judgement. The closing thought of the section speaks of the blessed person as well (41). It doxology reads,“Blessed be the LORD God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting. Amen, and Amen”. We notice here the double Amen.
