solomon_and_pharaohs_daughter_largePRAISE THE Lord! That’s the theme of the Psalms in today’s Old Testament study. We examine a half dozen psalms of praise and find divine council language, making it clear that the psalmists knew that other gods existed, but only one God, Yahweh, created all the rest.

We also return to the reign of Solomon in the historical books, discussing his marriage to the daughter of pharaoh and his business ventures with Hiram, king of Tyre.
