The Psalms - Poetry on Fire

Full Product Description

The Psalms Poetry on Fire is is a fresh dynamic equivalent translation that brings life and energy to the Psalms for the modern Bible reader.  There is simply nothing that touches my heart like the Psalms. Thousands of years ago my deepest feelings were put to music --  this is what we all delightfully discover when reading the Psalms as poetry on fire!

Psalm 5:3 says, ≥At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart. Every emotion of our hearts is reflected in the Psalms with words that express our deepest and strongest feelings. Sighing is turned to singing and trouble into triumph. The Psalms provide comfort and joy, leading us to the place where worship flows. When discouraged or downcast, we can take new strength from reading them. They charge our batteries and fill our sails. Their thunder stirs us, and sweet melodies move us into the sacred emotions of a heart on fire. Dark rain clouds of grief turn to bright rainbows of hope as we meditate on Davids soul subduing songs. The Psalms are clearly poetic. They are praises placed inside poetry that spill out of a fiery passionate heart. The Psalms free us to become emotional, passionate, sincere worshippers. These 150 poetic masterpieces give us an expression of faith and worship. They become a mirror to the heart of Gods people in our quest to experience His presence.

Poetry on Fire - Sample Text


Sample passages:

From Psalm 23
1 The Lord is my Fierce Protector and my Pastor.
I always have more than enough.
2 He offers a resting place for me
In his luxurious love.
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace,
The quiet brook of bliss.
3 That's where he restores and revives my life.
He opens before me pathways to God's pleasure,
And leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness,
So that I can bring honor to his Name.
4 Lord, even when your path takes me through
The valley of deepest darkness
Fear will never conquer me, for you already have!

From Psalm 63
1 O God of my life,
I'm lovesick for you in this weary wilderness.
I thirst with the deepest longings to love you more,
With cravings in my heart that can't be described.
Such yearning grips my soul for you, my God!
2 I'm energized every time I enter
Your heavenly sanctuary to seek more of your power
And drink in more of your glory.

The Translation

A dynamic-equivalent translation of the Holy Scriptures from the ancient Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic into modern English.

The Passion Translation Bible is a new, heart-level translation that expresses God's fiery heart of love to this generation using Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts, merging the emotion and life-changing truth of God's Word.

God longs to have His Word expressed in every language in a way that unlocks the passion of His heart. The goal of this work is to trigger inside every reader an overwhelming response to the truth of the Bible, unfolding the deep mysteries of the Scriptures in the love language of God, the language of the heart.

The Bible Text

As for us, we have all of these great witnesses who encircle us like clouds, each affirming faith's reality. So we must let go of every wound that has pierced us and the sin we so easily fall into. Then we will be able to run life's marathon race with passion and determination, for the path has been already marked out before us.

We look away from the natural realm and we fasten our gaze onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith's perfection. His example is this: Because his heart was filled with the joy of knowing that you would be his, he endured the agony of the cross and conquered its humiliation, and now sits exalted at the right hand of the throne of God!

Hebrews 12: 1 - 2
