Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 69:29-36. In the past two lessons, David was very sad and cried out to God to deliver him. Now, he is at a point of praising God. David says, “I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.” Have you noticed when you are going through a tough time, if you start to praise God it will lift your spirits?
David says that praising God will please the LORD more than if he had sacrificed an ox. Those who witness him praising God will be made glad also. When you praise God in spite of the storms in your life it is a witness to others. Not only will it encourage you, but it will encourage others as well. Make a choice to praise God no matter what the circumstances of life bring.
David proclaims, “Let everything in the heavens and earth praise God.” David declares that God will save Zion and will build it up again so His people can inherit it. David reminds us of the promises of God to His people.
Daily Bible Reading:
29 But I am poor and sorrowful: let thy salvation, O God, set me up on high.
30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
31 This also shall please the LORD better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
33 For the LORD heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.
35 For God will save Zion, and will build the cities of Judah: that they may dwell there, and have it in possession.
36 The seed also of his servants shall inherit it: and they that love his name shall dwell therein.
Things to think about:
- Have you noticed how praising God lifts your spirit?
- How often do you spend time praising God?
- What are some things for which we can praise God?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this Scripture in Psalm 69. We see that even though David was in a time of much sorrow, he chose to praise You. Help us to follow his example and praise You in spite of our circumstances. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

About the book:
The Book of Psalms:Part 3 Chapters 61-90 by Deborah H. Bateman is 28th book in the Daily Bible Reading Series. The book of Psalms contains 150 chapters. Deborah divided The Book of Psalms into five books to make it easier to read and study. Each book contains approximately thirty chapters from the book of Psalms.
Psalm 119 will not be included in The Book of Psalms since Deborah has already published a book about it called: Psalm 119: Thy Word is a Lamp unto My Feet.
The book of Psalms is one of Deborah’s favorite books of the Bible. It is a great book to read if you’re ever feeling down or need to renew your relationship with Christ. King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars. Some of the Psalms were written by Asaph and some say they were written for the sons of Korah and even Moses and Solomon were writers of the Psalms. The Psalms consists of poetry that was primarily meant to be used as songs of praise to the Lord.
The Book of Psalms: Part 3 Chapters 61-90 contains fifty Daily Bible Reading Lessons. Each lesson contains a brief commentary by the author, the Daily Bible Reading Scriptures, a few questions for contemplation or discussion, and a prayer of the day. It is a great Bible study for individuals or group studies.
