May the Psalm of the Day be a blessing to you!
Follow along as Keren recites the Psalm of the Day.
Every day, when the Temple of God was standing in Jerusalem, the Levitical choir stood atop the platform located in the Court of the Women, where all public prayer and worship were conducted, and they sang the psalm of praise for that particular day. Every song was orchestrated by King David and had deep significance. The practice has been preserved in Judaism through the centuries and is continued to this day in private prayer and in synagogues.
It is a practice worth pursuing and a special means of helping to commit particular Psalms to memory.
1. Sunday – Psalm 24
2. Monday – Psalm 48
3. Tuesday – Psalm 82
4. Wednesday – Psalm 94
5. Thursday – Psalm 81
6. Friday – Psalm 93
7. On Shabbat – Psalm 92, a song for the future, a perfected world “the day which is complete Shabbat tranquility,” forever.
Yom Rishon – Day 1 – Sunday
A psalm of David.
The earth is the LORD’s and all it contains, the world and all who live in it.
For He founded it on the seas and established it on the streams.
Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in His Holy Place?
He who has clean hands and a pure heart,
who has not taken My Name in vain or sworn deceitfully.
He shall receive a blessing from the LORD, and just reward from the God of his salvation.
This is a generation of those who seek Him,
the descendants of Jacob who seek Your Presence, Selah
Lift up your heads O gates; be lifted, eternal doors, so that the King of glory may enter.
Who is He the King of Glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah!

Thank you for including the lovely sculpture of ‘little ones’. Visual things speak to me very strongly.
It immediately brought to mind Psalm 8: Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings Thou hast ordained strength/praise on account of your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.
Such a blessing!
