Part 1: Before the Text:
Please read Psalms 14 and 53 and note some of the differences. The second book of the Psalter (Psalms 42-72) is known for its rare use of the special title, ‘LORD’ or Yahweh, ‘I am who I am’ (see Exodus 3). Please read through Psalm 69 and note the frequent use of LORD within this Psalm. It has, by far, the most occurrences of LORD within this second book of the Psalter.

Part 3: After the Text:
How important was it to have a meal (or ‘break bread’) in the following situations?
