Who spread out the earth upon the waters,For his mercy endures forever;

Who made the great lights,
For his mercy endures forever;

The sun to rule over the day,
For his mercy endures forever;

The moon and the stars to rule over the night,
For his mercy endures forever.

We have a similar narration in the Quran, Sura 55, where almost every other line is: Which of your Lord’s marvels can you deny? Verses 17-21:

Lord of the two easts and the two wests.
Which of your Lord’s marvels can you deny?

He separates the two seas where they meet.
Which of your Lord’s marvels can you deny?

A barrier is placed between them, to prevent them from transgressing.
Which of your Lord’s marvels can you deny?

There is also one interesting Psalm that seems to be coded. Psalm 119 has 22 sections of eight verses each. Each section is headed by a letter of the Hebrew alphabet and each verse within that section begins with that letter.

I wish there were room to quote more Psalms. They are quite beautiful. I encourage everyone to take the opportunity to study God’s revelations. Here are the first and the last of the Psalms.

Psalm 1: True Happiness

Happy the man who follows not the counsel of the wicked

Nor walks in the way of sinners, nor sits in the company of the insolent,

But delights in the law of the Lord and meditates on his law day and night.

He is like a tree planted near running water,

That yields its fruit in due season and whose leaves never fade.

[Whatever he does, prospers.]

Not so the wicked, not so; they are like chaff which the wind drives away.

Therefore in judgment the wicked shall not stand, nor shall sinners, in the assembly of the just.

For the Lord watches over the way of the just, but the way of the wicked vanishes.


Psalm 150: Final Doxology with Full Orchestra


Praise the Lord in his sanctuary,
Praise him in the firmament of his strength.

Praise him for his mighty deeds,
Praise him for his sovereign majesty.

Praise him with the blast of the trumpet,
Praise him with lyre and harp,

Praise him with timbrel and dance,
Praise him with strings and pipe.

Praise him with sounding cymbals,
Praise him with clanging cymbals.

Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!

[Note: Psalm 23 was quoted from the King James Version, all other Psalms were taken from The New American Bible]
