We are completing the spelling updates to the books of Psalms in the Matthew Bible: Modern Spelling Edition. It is a fascinating book and we want to share just a little bit about it with you.
The Psalms is divided into 5 books with 150 sections. The name Psalms, means “words sung to music.” Here is a list of the five books and their divisions:
Book 1 = 1 - 41
Book 2 = 42 - 72
Book 3 = 73 - 89
Book 4 = 90 - 106
Book 5 = 107 – 150
The beauty of the Matthew Bible is hard to surpass:
“At the last, I came to this point, that I thought: O why art thou so foolish? The right hand of the most highest can change all. Therefore will I remember the works of the Lord, and call to mind thy wonders of old time. I will speak of all thy works, and my talking shall be of thy doings” (Pslams 77:10-12 MBMS).
These Psalms were written by many people, although King David wrote/authorized nearly 75 himself. Among the other writers are Asaph, Ezra, sons of Korah, Herman, Ethan, Moses, and others. It is possible that Ezra compiled these Psalms.
