Tonight in Escondido California we played 3 of the 5 parts of Psalm 68 for the first time live. It’s such an intense Psalm and I was struggling to think how to set it up so that people weren’t perplexed by the content. At the last minute I had the idea of reading from Revelation 19 as the guys played an intro and that just set it up beautifully. Such strong messianic themes in that Psalm. The reading didn’t make it less intense but it framed it well I think. We also pulled out some older Psalms that we haven’t done for a while since they fitted the theme that was developing on the spot as we went! We were so stoked to see so many come out on a Tuesday night too.
Big drive north to Bakersfield tomorrow for our next concert. We’ll give Psalm 68 another spin there I think. MJ.
We’ve got a number of events coming up whilst we are here in CA and looking forward to the rest of the tour.
about the psalms
The Psalms were originally song lyrics intended to be performed to the accompaniment of musical instruments. The Greek word yalmos indicates the playing of stringed instrument and the Hebrew word mizmor refers to a song accompanied on a stringed instrument. Essentially they are the prayers, reflections and praise declarations of God’s people, and yet they no less authoritative and inspired than the rest of scripture.
