Categorizing the Psalms

Posted by Matt Postiff November 21, 2014 on Matt Postiff's Blog under GeneralĀ 

All the Psalms share the genre of Hebrew poetry. Among the 150 Psalms, there are groups or categories that share the same form and subject matter. These could be called "sub-genres," but I have elected to call them "categories." In this article, I provide a categorization of all the Psalms using a simple lettering system.

To see the entire document, please download this PDF. I provide it in the hopes that it will be helpful.

I feel that it could still use a lot of work. If anyone wants to take on the project of doing some spot checking the document, or even exhaustively checking it, be my guest. Let me know what you find!
