Question: Why are there so many laments in Psalms?
The Psalm’s are very important to Bible understanding, because they are given in Groups to give detail to sections of the Bible, which are important to mankind, and God’s Planned outcomes, still yet future!
Briefly, the sections are:
Psms.1–41; THE GENESIS BOOK: concerning man.
Psms. 42–72; THE EXODUS BOOK: concerning Israel as a nation.
Psms. 73–89; THE LEVITICUS BOOK: concerning the Sanctuary.
Psms. 90–106; THE NUMBERS BOOK: concerning Israel and the nations of the Earth.
Psms. 107–150: THE DEUTERONOMY BOOK: concerning God and His Word.
These need prayerful study!
