This week we’ll read both the shortest Psalm (Psalm 117, at 2 verses) and the longest Psalm (Psalm 119, at 176 verses!). We’ll also read one of the hardest Psalms to understand (Psalm 137).
In this episode we’ll talk about who wrote the Psalms, then we’ll look at the beautiful way Psalm 119 is arranged, and what it’s about. Plus, we’ll note what’s happening in one especially horrible verse in Psalm 137.
Finally, we’ll wrap up with an appreciation of one of the beautiful Psalms (Songs) of Ascents.
The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:
- What it’s about
- How to deal with challenging passages
- How the original readers saw it
- How it applies today
- And much more
After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.

Big churches aren’t better than small churches. But small churches aren’t better than big churches, either.
Most of the New Testament books were written to groups of people, not individuals. So it’s important to read them that way.
A corrupt culture, a divided church, and love as the focus of the spiritual gifts. Paul’s letter to Corinth has never been more relevant – or needed.
