Psalms is a book in the Old Testament, which is negotiated as a collection of sacred songs to
be sung. Bible scholars approach it as poetic composition because of its tone and form. They
consider the Book of Psalms as a hymn that disseminates the joyous celebration of the
psalmist. The Book of Psalms is treated as an anthology of individual songs, which are
composed by the psalmist, David. But this fact has been rejected by many Bible scholars. Still,
it is considered a debatable area in the study of the Bible. The content of the books talks about
the love of God and the relationship between the psalmist and God. Also, the Psalms comfort
the heavy-laden heart and soul. The poetic language and technique employed in the Book of
Psalms are what keeps it different from the other books of the Bible. The narrative technique
and formused in the compositions sound significant enough to be explored. The present
research aims at researching the narrative technique used in Psalm 91. The author of the
Psalm 91chapter is unknown but the poetic form and narrative technique have spurred to
carry out the present research.
