The Shortest Psalm in the Bible


Psalm 117:1-2 KJVA

O praise the Lord , all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.  For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord  endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.

Praise for the Lord’s merciful kindness is the theme of this selection from the Americanized King James Version.  Isn’t it noteworthy that even the shortest of all Psalms has an emphasis on God’s kindness toward us!

Deitrich Bonhoeffer stated that the book of Psalms is the prayer book of the Bible.  What do you think?  Is there anything more powerful than praying the Almighty’s words back to him?  Why not do that right now.  This selection is easily memorized and will serve superbly in this situation.  Just wait and see if God doesn’t bless you through this simple exercise (not as a ritual, but as a living, fresh experience every time.)

Prayer:

O praise the Lord , all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.  For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord  endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.
