This week GPC is beginning a new series on Psalm 119 for Ordinary Time titled, The Disciple’s Alphabet. The title draws from the fact that Psalm 119 is an acrostic poem. That is, the psalm is written in twenty-two, eight verse sections in which each section’s lines begin with the same letter of the Hebrew alphabet Beginning with aleph the psalm continues in sequence to the alphabet’s end, tav.
I thought it wouldn’t be a bad endeavor to acquaint ourselves with the Hebrew alphabet, and so we will be working to learn it. As we all know the English alphabet by the song we first learned, Michael Kuehn has recorded the Hebrew alphabet as I learned it in Dr. Pratt’s Introduction to Hebrew class at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando. You may listen to song via the player below and download the lead sheet below. Enjoy!
