Recurrent motifs in the Psalms

The process of versifying the Psalms not only opens the eye to the importance of small detail and recurrent motifs; it also underlines the general line of thought present in the Book of Psalms. One of these main themes encountered is the interactive relationship between God and man as illustrated inter alia by the images of the hand, the eye and the motif of God and man as being “partners”; of man as being the property of God and as co-inhabiting a mutual dwelling. The end result of the versifying process is thus a deliberate attempt to encorporate both the general and the particular of the original text in a meticulous and Biblically responsible way.
