Books of the Psalms & theLectionary
We are breaking into a new “Book of the Psalms”. If youremember, the Psalms are broken up into 5 books. Weare not really sure why the Psalms were broken up intothese books. While there are similarities in theme, it isnot distinct enough to be the entire reason for breakingup the larger work of the Psalms. Some scholars thinkthese books functioned like the “cycles” of ourlectionary system.(A “lectionary cycle” is the appointed readings forchurch services in liturgical churches such as theLutherans, the Anglicans, and the Roman Catholics.University Lutheran uses the Revised CommonLectionary Lutheran Edition. There are otherlectionary systems. Ours is a 3-year cycle – normallyfocusing on Matthew in the first year [“Year A”], Mark in
the second year [“Year B”], and Luke in the third year[“Year C”].)If this were the case, people would sing only out of BookI for the first year of worship, Book II for the second, etc.Other scholars thought that these books were broken upto be read alongside the Pentateuch, the first 5 books of the Bible.Gregory of Nyssa, an early church father, attempted toshow that the books and their structure show “steps tomoral perfection” although this seemed to beessentially the product of a well meaning imagination.Whatever the case may be for breaking up the Psalms,we appreciate that there is some order that we canfollow along with – however arbitrary that order mayseem sometimes.
Book I
Book I of the Psalms does have its own sense of character. One of the reasons that scholars believe thatthe Books of the Psalms follow the structure of the 5books of the Pentateuch is that Book I seems to beginwith a history. The history of the world and thepatriarchs is given in Genesis, and the history of Davidicrule is given to large degree in Book I.Book I is comprised of Psalms 1-41. These psalms showthe person and character of David the human. David’shumanity plays a larger role in these Psalms where as inBook II, we will see David’s “office” of king playing alarger role.
