Detail page (individual psalms):

The layout of the detail page:

  • The full list of attributes (1) was previewed on mouse-over in the main page. Here the list of tags and themes are always listed in full. A caret (see arrow) indicates the ability to open and close the panel.
  • The display of the Hebrew text is selected by a toggle (2).
  • Parallelism is indicated by the circled letters, the // symbol, and its popup. It is toggled by the Parallelism button (3).
  • Structure in indicated by capital letters, light text, vertical lines, light red underlining, and topical heading. It is toggled by the Structure button (4).
Structure

From “About”:

Structure: Acrostic

  • The letter of the alphabet (1) are shown in the right margin in the line above the text.
  • The first word of the Hebrew text which begins with that letter is underlined in red(2) in both the Hebrew and the English.
Structure: Chiastic

The chiasm:

  • A Prayer
    • B Enemies
      • C Exhortation to service
  • B’ Enemies
  • A’ Prayer
  • The titles for the sections of the chiasm appear faded which highlights as blue on mouse-over (1)
  • Light lines (2) connect the equivalent steps – again faded which highlights as blue on mouse-over.
Structure: Strophic

  • Each strophe is assigned a title (1).
  • A faint vertical line (2) establishes the boundaries of the strophe.

Context Menu and Information Panel

The Information Panel shows the expected data. Notice that the Psalm Explorer shows considerably more information, a situation we haven’t encountered before,

Likewise, the Context Menu has no surprises.

 

Search

The Bible Search option of the Context Menu generates this search argument: {Label Psalm WHERE Attribution ~ "Anonymous" AND Attribution ~ "David (LXX)" AND Genre ~ "Lament" AND Structure ~ "Chiasm" AND Tag ~ "Imprecatory"}

Guides > Bible Reference Guide > Liturgy

In the Liturgy Guide section, the top portion gives the lectionary uses, the bottom portion gives other liturgical used. The former is primarily responsorial psalms where the psalm is used in response to a scripture lesson. The latter is primarily various forms of morning and evening prayer i.e. Liturgy of the Hours or Divine Office.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
