Hi,

Please help me. I'm looking for alias names (subtitles) of 150 psalms.

I want to learn Psalms by heart. If a psalm number can call the outline (the unique image), my small brain could also call the outline.

Do you have the list? [This is a family friendly topic (F.F.T.). The list can also help kids.]

Hello, CSCO,

I'm not sure that I understand your question, but it is an interesting topic. As for the Psalm numbering, it is different depending on which text you are using, for instance KJV vs LXX.

I'm not aware of any standardized list of subtitles. Psalms are often referred to by part or all of their first lines. Again, this will be different depending upon the translation used.

Best wishes on this project!
Peace be with you,
Sister

Hi, Monaxi-san.

Thanks for your suggestion. Well, the Greek Bible has Psalm 151 and psalm numbers in Dr. Luther's writings are odd. Well. well, I see.

In short, I wanted to assciate a psalm number with a reminder. For example, Psalm 1 with EVERGREEN. But I want to use the first lines as subtitiles. Because I am a lazy man...

Hi there. I read this post and Thought, "I'm sure the Psalms already have titles, don't they?" I was surprised to find they don't. In my Bible they do have little subtititles that say something like, "For the director of music. To the tune of 'Do not destroy.' A Psalm of Asaph, a song." (Ps 76). I think that might be a little longwinded for a catchy title though!

As an aside, I've noticed a lot of the Psalms are meant to be sung to a tune. Does anyone know what those tunes sounded like? I'm curious for that now.

There are many duplicate subtititles.

As an aside, Luku 1:46-55 is called Magnificat because the hymn begins with 'Magnificat anima mea dominum.' in the Vulgate. I suppose Latin Bible has the index (keywords for my scheme) because medival churches were never empty. However my Bible is not Vulgate but CEV.

No. The information came from the preface of Magnigicat (by Martin Luther) by Japanese translators.

I suppose this is the Psalm 152 melody somehow:

I laughed at him several times but he makes me weep many times always.

Chick, you are my Dulcinea!

The 'titles' of the psalms are a source of great confusion, contention, and one might even say controversy.

What I might suggest to you is to find a psalter you like and write down any titles you find there. From this list, you could memorize the psalms using the list's titles as a means of prompting your memory to some extent.

This is the text of one psalter that provides quite a lot for prayer and study: https://quod.lib.umich.edu/e/eebo/A27790.0001.001/1:7?rgn=div1;view=toc

As an example, what we generally see as the first psalm is clearly for morning prayer. (Not that it can be contained to that purpose, but it is a good starting point for the day.) Other liturgical uses are suggested by the 'titles' you'll find in this text.
Drop and roll!
