Chapter Summary

The Tamid Psalms are a product of late Second Temple Judaism and intersect that complex phenomenon in various ways. The different planes of intersection define different contexts in which the Tamid Psalms belong. Study of the Tamid Psalms in relation to these contexts can provide insight not only into the psalms, but also into late Second Temple Judaism. This chapter discusses three such contexts. The combined information on the Tamid Psalms and Tamid ritual offers an opportunity to explore the intersection of performance and historical studies. The account of the Tamid service in the Mishnah concentrates on the activities of the ritual and records little of its verbal accompaniment. The two groups of psalms from the Psalter that are considered are the Psalms of Ascents and the first part of the fourth book of the Psalter.
