The Psalms -- Some Topical Classifications

The Psalms are not only useful for singing praises to God, they are also useful for teaching and confirming that Jesus is the Christ or Messiah. Note the use Jesus made of them in Luke 24:44-47; cf. Psalm 22, and Peter’s use of them in his first gospel sermon (Acts 2:25-28; cf. Psalm 16:8,10-11).

It has been said that in the Psalms one finds expressed the eager yearning and longing for God’s “presence”. It certainly contains prayers and songs of joyous trust and praise! Indeed, every emotion known to man is expressed in beautiful and inspired terms (e.g., joy, anger, praise, repentance, trust, even doubt).

Are you filled with some emotion for which you cannot find the words to express it? It is likely you will find it expressed in the book of Psalms. With these thoughts in mind, let us briefly look at some topical classifications in the book of Psalms:
