Some fun facts about the book of Psalms:
** There are 150 chapters in the book of Psalms;
** 99 of them are praise chapters;
** 41 of them are prayers.
** 10 of the 150 chapters are written by someone when they are 'down'.
The first line of each chapters sets the tone for each chapter.
Here are first lines in several of them:
Chapter 4: "O God, you have declared me perfect in your eyes."
Chapter 10: "Lord, why are you standing aloof and far away?"
Chapter 16: "Save me, O God, because I have come to you for refuge."
Chapter 23: "Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need."
Chapter 38: "O Lord, don't punish me while you are angry!"
Chapter 54: "Come with great power, O God, and save me!"
Chapter 66: "Sing to the Lord, all the earth!"
Chapter 100: "Shout with joy before the Lord, O earth!"
Chapter 136: "Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his lovingkindness continues forever."
Chapter 150: "Hallelujah! Yes, praise the Lord!"
