Psalm 57– SING & LEARN – Words of weapon are defeated by words of G-d’s praises

We are fortunate again to have Professor Victoria’s analysis to the chapter, Psalm 57.
Below the analysis you can find the historical background for the Psalm. Last, there are few short comments I remember we brought up in the study.

Psalm 55 – Analysis

 The imagery in song 57 is very like that of song 55, but the perspective is not the same. As if one landscape was being described from two different angles of perception. The wings, in song 55, are those of a dove and they describe the poet’s longing to escape his enemies; in song 57, however, the wings describe the shelter the poet seeks in God. In both songs, the weapons of the poet’s enemies are forged out of words. But in 57 the contrast between the two images, wings and swords, makes clear their oppositeness, a quality that is merely suggested in 55.

Psalm 55 – SING & LEARN

Gladly I added Victoria’s analysis to chapter 55. A different point of view from an English literature professor.  Below the analysis you can find the historical background. Last, there are few short comments i remember we brought up in the study.

Enjoy !

Psalm 51 – SING & LEARN – Teshuvah

below the recording of the song (Psalm 51:12) you’ll find a summary of our discussion, the Chapter itself and the story behind the Psalm that I googled out from some website (didn’t check it, so if you find it not a proper translation.. please tell me)

The subject is Teshuva, remorse and the principles of repentance.
