Bible in 90 Days - Day 39

Today I read Psalms 1 through 24. As I was reading through these Psalms, I was looking for verses that I know are praise songs. I found a few. With Psalm 8:9, some translations show "majestic" instead of "excellent."

O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
Psalm 8:9

Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah

Psalm 24:10.

For this last Psalm, I'm not sure if verses 1 and 2 are contemporary songs. Verse 3 is a well known praise song, but I loved verses 1 and 2 and had to include them in my list.

I will love thee, O LORD, my strength.

The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised:
so shall I be saved from mine enemies

Psalm 18:1-3.

The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock;
and let the God of my salvation be exalted

Psalm 18:46.

I'm behind in my B90Days reading but I'm looking forward to Psalms for just that reason.
