Despite the absence of any clear strophic division, this acrostic is a remarkable poem. The poet employs numerous poetic techniques, notably the repetition of words. Psalm 145 could be described as a hymn. The poetic techniques serve to convey the contents of the psalm. It is a persuasive text in which the poet sets out to persuade his readers or hearers that Yahweh should be praised for his greatness, sovereignty and love.
