Lyrical and Stylistics Study of Psalm 23

Lyrical and Stylistics Study of Psalm 23

J Judith Gracia
The research paper focuses on the lyrical, linguistic and literary style of Psalm 23. The book of Psalms in the Bible is a recognised piece of literature. David has written many Psalms, and seventy-three are ascribed to him. Among these Psalms, Psalm 23 is worldly and widely acknowledged as David’s and the most read and recited one. Though many have not read the Bible, they are familiar with the first verse of the Psalm “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want” (23:1). There is much more to discuss in Psalm 23 than just discussing on the shepherd. The style is distinctly Davidian, and the themes range from earthly to heavenly and filled with detailed expressions from his experiences in metaphoric imagery. The analysis shows that the use of archaic words are still in use, and it is highly praised by how it is arranged in a sentence. The choice of words boosts the energy of a reader in times of need and gives the poetry a sense of belonging by the subjective themes, structure and form. Though Psalms were written about centuries ago, they still have life and comfort people today.
