Selah: Studying God's Songbook
Selah. Stop. Listen. Pause. Reflect. In Hebrew, the systematic meaning of this word is unknown, yet it has been widely speculated. One thing translators and commentators do seem to agree on is that the word intimates the importance of the passage preceding it. This word is used predominately in the book of Psalm. Personally, I believe there is no greater place in Scripture to slow down, hear from God and reflect on Him than God's songbook!
Inviting you to drink deeply from His Word, this self pacing study offers twelve lessons on Happiness and Righteousness; Songs for waking and sleeping; Considering God's Name, His Enemies, His Creation; Declaring His Glory; God's Goodness; Waiting on God; Godliness and much more. Each lesson begins with scripture to read, an introduction to the study, related topical questions with additional scripture references and concludes with the Selah, Pause, and Think on These Things points. Space is provided for short answers although I suspect keeping a journal nearby would be beneficial to your personal quiet time reflections. As someone who spent several months learning from the book of Psalms alongside Charles Spurgeon's Treasury of David, I can assure you that a journey into Psalms can be quite satisfying. KJV is recommended although other versions may work if you have access to an online KJV for any translation differences. 105 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne
