TL;DR: The middle section of the Hebrew Psalter has long been regarded as an inspiring anthology of ancient religious poetry as discussed by the authors, and a careful reading of Psalms 51-100 will stimulate a deeper appreciation for this religious poetry while augmenting the value of personal Bible study.
Abstract: The middle section of the Hebrew Psalter has long been regarded as an inspiring anthology of ancient religious poetry. Within this part of the Sepher Tehillim or Book of Praises, are 11 of the 12 psalms of Asaph (73-83), one of Solomon's two (72), the sole offerings of Ethan (89) and Moses (90), and four of the songs ascribed to the sons of Korah-not to mention the many assigned to David. Dr. Marvin Tate's distinctive commentary traces all the biographical, historical, literary, and practical concepts of these middle psalms and demonstrates how the purpose of each one unfolds. Psalms 51-100, Volume 20 of the Word Biblical Commentary series, furnishes readers with a wealth of information: a thorough, up-to-date bibliography preceding each psalm the author's fresh translation of the Hebrew text Form/Structure/Setting notes which expand the translation extensive comments on the text explanations of the pertinent observations of the author Dr. Tate has also attempted to present various views of passages in which differences of opinion exist. This work, the middle commentary of Word Biblical Commentary's three-volume study of the Psalter, mirrors the opposing emotions so often evident in life: sorrow-joy, love-hate, and faith-fear. A careful reading of Psalms 51-100 will stimulate a deeper appreciation for this religious poetry while augmenting the value of personal Bible study.

TL;DR: The mention of the coming of YHWH from Sinai in Deut 33:2 can be considered a literary production of the final redaction of the Pentateuch as discussed by the authors.
Abstract: The mention of the coming of YHWH from Sinai in Deut 33:2 can be considered a literary production of the final redaction of the Pentateuch. The editor, in the elaboration of the ending of the Pentateuch, emphasizes what is to be a mainstay for the sons of Jacob: a relationship with God who appeared in Sinai, as well as an awareness of holiness and the possession of the Law. Some statements in texts intertextually related suggest that emphasizing YHWH's relationship with the mountain served to indicate his uniqueness and thus the otherness and distinctiveness of Jacob's sons from other nations. The emphasis on YHWH's relationship with the mountain in the Deuteronomy framework text (33:2–5) reflects the nature and ideas behind the pentateuchal redaction. The more universalized concept of the identity of YHWH and Israel can be seen in some of the statements attributed to the editors of the Hexateuch.

TL;DR: In this paper, a comparative reading of Psalm 77 illuminates the darkness of colonialism and post-colonial failure and suffering by bridging the historical gap between the biblical text and the contemporary African context.
Abstract: Reeling from the collapse of the kingdom and subsequent exile to Assyria and Babylon, the Israelites and people of Judah composed songs and prayers addressed to Yahweh. Disorientation arising from this tragic event gradually gave way to confidence and reorientation because the focus shifted from a situation of hurt to Yahweh's acts in Israel's history. In the Exodus, Yahweh had demonstrated his power by ending Israel's oppression in Egypt. This event is actualized during the exilic and post-exilic period to assure the disillusioned community of Yahweh's unchanging faithfulness. By bridging the historical gap between the biblical text and the contemporary African context, a comparative reading of Psalm 77 illuminates the darkness of colonialism and post-colonial failure and suffering. This reading yields hope to the despondent multitudes regarding Yahweh's concern for them not only in terms of future involvement but also in terms of his intervention and presence in contemporaryappalling contexts.

The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2014 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Timothy Paul Jones The purpose of this project was to develop and implement an effective process to equip parents as the primary disciple-makers of their children in the home through the strategy of Faith Milestones at Cornerstone Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Brighton, Michigan. Chapter 1 provides a summary of the goals and rationale for the project in its ministry context and the research methodology used to measure the project’s goals. Chapter 2 provides theological and biblical support for the project by examining four texts of scripture: Deuteronomy 6:1-9, Psalm 78:1-8, Ephesians 6:1-4, and Ephesians 4:10-16. Chapter 3 furnishes theoretical and sociological support for the project. The milestone strategy is advanced as a method to engage in the family-equipping model to respond to parental disengagement as observed through sociological studies. Chapter 4 summarizes the details of the project. It describes the project as a whole, the planning and promotion of the project, and the implementation of the project. Chapter 5 provides an evaluation of the project. The attainment of the project’s goals is measured according the research methodology proposed in chapter 1.
