Podcast notes

The week ahead (from 16 to 22 June)

Psalms and songs

“The Lord is my shepherd” is Psalm 22(23).

“Telephone not ringing” – Telephone Line by ELO (1976). But compare also Bad Connection by Yazoo (1983) and Memphis, Tennessee by Chuck Berry (1959). There is something about phones.

“Flower on a country walk” – Comme by Françoise Hardy (1966).

“Lord, you watch me and you know me” is Psalm 138(139)

“I will praise you, Lord, you have rescued me” is Psalm 29(30).

“I will sing for ever of your mercies” is Psalm 88(89). Psalm 77(78) does the same sort of job in Advent, Lent and Eastertide.

Why some psalms have two numbers.
