    Psalm 119 because of the stateliness of its language and its author’s devotion to th entirety of the Word of God (not just the law, as such).

    I’ll vote for 139 – such knowledge is too wonderful for me.

    Since 119 is already taken I’ll go for Ps. 22 because it gives me hope that even when I feel like God isn’t listening he hears my crys for help.

    Pss 105 and 106 (I can pick them both; Zimmerli dubbed them Zwillingpsalmen)!!

    Why? They are beautiful recitations of nearly the same beautiful saving history of YHWH – from two entirely different perspectives. I find them to be captivating.

    And I must mention the utter beauty and artistry of Ps 119. Who can look at that and question and amazing skill and intelligence of the ancient Hebrew mind?
