Psalms: about Psalms 92 and 93

PLAYLIST below

The psalms, in Hebrew mizmorim, are religious songs accompanied by music. The book of Psalms includes 150 which are mainly attributed to King David.

Until about the beginning of the 19th century, the psalms were always transmitted orally. It is only two centuries since we began to transcribe their music.

We propose to hear Psalms 92 and 93, recited for Shabbat in different rites.



Psaume 92 :
מִזְמוֹר שִׁיר, לְיוֹם הַשַּׁבָּת
Mizmor Chir Leyom Hashabbat

Psaume 93 :
יְהוָה מָלָךְ, גֵּאוּת לָבֵשׁ
Adonaï malakh guéout lavèsh.
