Abstract

Psalms: types, function, character and the versification of Psalm 131

The publishing of Liedboek van die kerk (2001) has emphasised the importance of the Psalms for the liturgy and the hymnology. This article considers the following aspects: the bridge function of the psalms; the significance and function of the psalms as an open hymnbook and as an anthology; and the literary types found in the psalms. The structure and form of Psalm 131 are analysed in greater detail. This analysis leads in conclusion to a literary evaluation of its versification by T.T. Cloete.
