Psalms 13

 I just happened to be doing some work on Psalms 13. It is so short, I should put out the music and the structure as a learning example. Actually, I posted this just 3 years ago here. Pretty much up to date.

What I noticed today is how easy it is to see the circular structure in the SimHebrew - and more importantly - to find structures yourself just by highlighting using the browser find feature with no need to switch keyboard or match diacritics.

h pn-iamr aoibi icoltiv.
xrii igilu ci amo't.
v vani bksdç b'tkti igl libi biwuytç.
awirh lihvh,
ci gml ylii.

Of course the music shows off the rhetoric of the repeated request yd-anh, and the request is highlighted (verse d) by the chiastic use of lbb-aib aib-lb.

I am getting busier and busier - selling a house in a distant place on behalf of another soul, and preparing a book on the SimHebrew Bible - to be announced sometime over the next 3-6 months - (at a guess). So I may calm the posting a bit.

The concordance has now surpassed its master in ratings! Dust is rising, the concordance rating is falling (that's good).

You can use the concordance to explore this Psalm. Note that lb and lbb are listed as separate roots. Story here often used in sermons, but maybe it's the lub lub of the two chambers. There is a performance available here.
