Psalms is a book located in the Bible. It is the longest book in the Bible and it also has the longest and shortest chapters in the Bible. Psalms is entirely made out of one-hundred and fifty songs and praises. Most of the songs and praises in Psalms were written by the famous King David (the one who killed Goliath). Many Psalms were turned into hymns that we use today. Although Psalms is fun to read and look at, you really need to focus on it and pay attention to it to actually understand Psalms and figure out what it means. Many people think of the Psalms as a group of poetic phrases for entertainment or to read just for fun or something to read to sooth them, but that is not just the only reasons of Psalms. This book gives us an extremely important poetic concept between human beings and God.
An obvious theme in Psalms is God blessing and protecting the righteous and Godly and God hating and disliking the unrighteous and ungodly. Because of the obedience, Godliness, and faith of man God inflicted extremely good sanctions on Godly men. He protected them from all evil. However, God cursed the wicked and ungodly men because of their unwillingness to serve and follow God. If you read the Psalms then you will see that the Psalms has multiple chapters mainly based on that one theme.
The Psalms (as you may have guessed) are not historical writings. They are meant for an entirely different purpose. If you think about it, it is like the Psalms is written directly to you, which of course I think it is. David wrote a lot of these Psalms and he even put some of his own songs in Psalms and he even filled his Psalms with knowledge and wisdom and he even made them meaningful in many different ways. The Psalms can also help us physically and mentally, as in, it can sooth us, it can teach us to grow as Godly men, it can help lead us in the right direction spiritually, and it can even help us with our walk with God. My favorite Psalms, Psalms 23, goes like this:
