Psalm 12 Devotion: A Timeless Truth

Lying is awful.  It hurts others and it hurts the person doing it.  It is a terrible feeling to know lies are being circulated about us.  Sometimes it is a personal lie, but other times it is a circumstantial lie about an inherent group or classification of people.  And, for the liar, it is so exhausting to keep up the appearances which lies produce.

Psalm 9 Devotion: Reciting the Alphabet

The interesting thing about Psalm 9 is that it is an acrostic psalm, which continues into Psalm 10.  There are eight acrostic psalms in the total number of 150 psalms. Each line of an acrostic psalm begins with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet.  In English, this would be like line 1 starting with A, line 2 starting with B, line 3 starting with C, and so on.
