1.  Multiple choice: What psalm contains the lines, "Know that the Lord,  He is  God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture"?  (a) Psalm 25; (b) Psalm 23; or (c) Psalm 100.

2. Fill in the blank: In Psalm 102, the psalmist feels so overwhelmed by the circumstances of life that he compares himself to a pelican in the wilderness, an owl of the desert, and a ------------ alone on a housetop.

3. Multiple choice:  What psalm begins with the words, "Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!"  (a) Psalm 100; (b) Psalm 103; or (c) Psalm 32.
1. (c) Psalm 100 ( Ps. 100:3 ).  The thought of God being our Shepherd and we being His sheep occurs with great frequency in the Old Testament. In the New Testament Jesus called Himself the Good Shepherd (John 10:11 ).

2. Sparrow (Ps. 102:6,7 ). What a vivid picture of loneliness! However, by the end of the psalm the psalmist is expressing the  comfort received from the Lord.

3. (b) Psalm 103 (Ps. 103:1 ).
