Short Dictionary of the Psalms by Jean-Pierre Prevost

Book Description

This practical work takes an in-depth look at 40 words in the Psalms chosen largely because of their frequency, but also because of the diversity of meanings that modern users might assume. It aims to encourage Christians looking at the Psalms to ask how they can contribute to prayer today. Each of the 40 words are examined from two perspectives. The first gives etymological and semantic information on the meaning of the root and the words compounded from it. The second section is devoted almost exclusively to the use of the word or the root in the Psalter, and identifes its characteristic meanings. A series of separate short essays serve as general introductions to the Psalter to help readers with problems that may be encountered when using the Psalms as prayer in today's world. The word study is done on the original Hebrew, but a table at the back of the book allows those who don't know or are unfamiliar with Hebrew to learn the words' and themes' English equivalent. The book should help the faithful enter into the world of the Psalter through the gateway of specific words that constitute the characteristic vocabulary of the Psalms.
