Chapter Summary

There are common and infrequent words for the Temple in the Psalms. This chapter focuses on the latter with special attention to their use in the Psalms as well as attempting to decipher the reason behind the psalmists choice of these unusual terms. It briefly presents the common terms for Gods House, according to the psalmists. It then concentrates on two infrequent designations of the Temple by studying the contexts in which these words occur in the Psalms. Unless there is need for recourse to a diachronic approach, the texts of the Psalms are considered as they are presented to us today, with some reflection on the literary devices employed. The use of two infrequent appellations of Gods house in the Psalms is studied closely. Finally the chapter explains how the names given to the Temple in a particular Psalm are chosen according to the major theme of the Psalm.
