More Psalms of David, some from the sons of Korah, one from Ethan and one from Moses man of God (a prayer). Then a dozen or so unidentified – then a return to David beginning in Psalm 101. The sense of this grouping of songs is deep gratefulness resulting in expressive praise.
This is a place many never find. To be deeply grateful we must have been tested or even suffered loss. To find true gratefulness is humbling to the heart. This then results in a deeper level of experiential praise and thanksgiving. At least, that’s the way I see it 🙂
The sons of Korah were tasked with caring for the dwelling place (sanctuary) of God Most High. While they were not designated as priests, the sons of Kohath (Korah) were key to caring for God’s Holy Presence among the people. Moses’ song (90) is beautiful on many levels, and serves as a reflective poem of a life well-lived in active faith.
