SELAH – A month of rest and reflection in the Psalms Devotional

Psa. 72:20 The prayers of David, the son of Jesse, are ended.

From the 1st of August until the 31st of August we will pause the Psalms Devotional. It will allow us to have a some time of reflection and rest in the Psalms Devotional series.

This  was the final verse of yesterday’s reflection. In the Hebrew Psalter, this is the ending of one of the five “books” within the larger book of Psalms. All of August it is our hope that we will have a ‘Selah’ moment. Selah,  which occurs 71 times in 39 psalms (also in Hab 3:3, 9, 13) remains unexplained. The Greek, where it occurs 92 times, translates it as diapsalma, which means an instrumental interlude.

Often in this modern day and age of noise we feel uncomfortable with silence.

Let us allow God to speak to us during this period of instrumental interlude.
