    Great encouragement and challenge! Bless God!!
  • I love this psalm as well so comforting, and Joan if you open your Bible you will see it is a book of psalms and even in my early 1900 Bible it is the same and every psalm is a chapter, they are separated one from the other, hope this helps you to understand, they were to be considered a cluster of 5 books God Bless
