What is the Psalter about?


I found it easier to convert this to html using Word 10 rather than Word 2013.  The content of the graph was developed with Word 2013 and Excel. The Sky drive was unusable. Microsoft informed me that my password would be visible. This is not a step to inspire confidence.






I played around again with my semantic domains in the Psalter and finally figured out an easy way to collect them into larger groupings. What is the Psalter about?
  • just over 40% is about covenant,
  • just under 30% on creation and destruction, 
  • just under 20% about geography, grammar and the names of individual and tribes,
  • just over 10% about trouble, appeal and response.
