The Book of Psalms (/sɑːmz/ or /sɔː(l)mz/ SAW(L)MZ; Hebrew: תְּהִלִּים, Tehillim, "praises"), commonly referred to simply as Psalms, the Psalter or "the Psalms", is the first book of the Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third section of the Hebrew Bible, and thus a book of the Christian Old Testament. The title is derived from the Greek translation, ψαλμοί, psalmoi, meaning "instrumental music" and, by extension, "the words accompanying the music"

Psalms Of Poetry by Shelia A. Weems is a collection of lifestyle poems written to uplift and inspire, to revive and refresh and to rekindle the love that lies within each of us, bringing peace and joy at each reading.

Other topics include the psalms' relationship to prophecy and wisdom, their composition and collection, their style and performance, and the technical terminology involved in Psalms study. Praise for "The Psalms in Israel's Worship".

Lynn Domina’s collection Poets on the Psalms, published in 2008, contains essays by 14 poets exploring what the Psalms mean to them. So there is no dearth, at present, but a feast.

The psalms are poems, and poems have a meaning-although the poet has no obligation to make his meaning . In poetry, words are charged with meaning in a far different way than are the words in a piece of scientific prose.

But to say that poems have meaning is not to say that they must necessarily convey practical information or an explicit message. The words of a poem are not merely the signs of concepts: they are also rich in affective and spiritual associations

Carol Rumens: These biblical songs have all the force of poetry, and their rhythms can still be heard centuries later in secular verse. To celebrate the 400th anniversary of the publication of the King James Bible, and the work of those earlier translators like John Rogers, Myles Coverdale and William Tyndale, whose scholarship and musicality paved the way, I've turned to the Book of Psalms for this week's poem
