  • Dwight on Psalms 119
    What does ALEPH and GIMEL in Psalm 119 mean? Thank you

    These are all Hebrew alphabet. Alaph, Beth, Gimal etc.,. Each and every line of a set of verses under an Alphabet starts from the corresponding alphabet. It clearly shows that David is well known to write songs (handling his language as a professional)
  • Philip - in Reply on Psalms 119
    I believe that Psalm 119 is so long (176 verses) that it is divided by the Jewish alphabet A = Aleph, B = Beth etc... to divide it into smaller more readable portions. I have only read this today as part of my morning prayers, I hope this helps.
