Memorize the Psalms
Psalm 100 Stanza 2
(Click here for rest of the Memorize the Psalms series.)
Hello again! If we work hard, we can finish stanza two in one day.
Here is line one:
Know that he the Lord is God
We need pictures for three words.
Know: Since “know” sounds like “no”, we can use our pictogram for “no”.
That: Here is my hat with a “t” on the front of it.
God: How could we ever draw a picture of God? Since this is impossible, I will use a triangle which can remind us of the Trinity.
There are also three words to learn in line two:
He made us, we belong to him.
us/we: We can use the same picture for us and we. We is the subject of the sentence and us is the direct object but both words mean the same people. So here I am with a friend.
Belong: I could draw a very long bee. But that might bee scary. My father likes to end his letters like this: “So _________ long” . I will steal a page from his letter and draw:
Now for our last line:
We are his people, the sheep of his flock.
We need to learn six words.
are: We’ll use the letter R. I really like this letter!
his: How about a snake hissing? I hope that’s not too scary.
people: Do stick figures count as people? Certainly you will be able to count my stick figures.
sheep: Here is a problem. We have already used my puff-cloud sheep to represent “you” (ewe). Can we use it again for sheep? Well I think that we can because in our language we have words which look alike but mean different things (such as mean). The puff-cloud sheep looks like only one thing but it is really both “sheep” and “you”.
of: Even though this word is not off, I hope you won’t think I’m too far off if I depict a light switch that is off.
Finally “flock”: And here we end with several happy contented ewes. I hope you are feeling happy and content. You are halfway through Psalm 100.
Here is the second stanza of Psalm 100:
Good-bye till next week!
