After visiting the TCEA convention and expo, I am stoked to share one of the main topics floating around among all the geeky teachers and trainers. Chat.openai.com is currently free. It is an AI you can talk to and is capable of many things. Teachers can ask Chat to put together lesson plans AND differentiate them for dyslexia, autism, ADHD, and so on. You could ask it to write a song or a poem, or even explain things to you in a simple manner. Now, the problem with this AI os that sometimes it makes things up to fill spaces, so anything you ask it to write needs to be double checked. With that being said, I asked it to write a blog post based on Psalm 91 and include historical facts. It did so, but it didn’t include and references. I asked it to go back and add biblical references, then it did. Below you will find a blog post written by an AI based on Psalm 91. What do you think?
Psalm 91 in Christian Culture
Psalm 91 is one of the 150 psalms in the Book of Psalms (found in the Bible in the Old Testament, specifically in the Hebrew Bible), and is a hymn of trust and confidence in God. It is often referred to as the “Psalm of Protection.”
The psalm is believed to have been written by King David (who is mentioned in the Bible in 1 Samuel 16), a historical figure who lived in the 10th century BCE and is remembered for his role as both a musician and a warrior. David is credited with many of the psalms in the Book of Psalms, and his life and struggles are often reflected in the lyrics of his songs.
In Psalm 91, the psalmist declares his trust in God, stating in verses 2-3: “I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’” The psalm continues with a series of promises from God, including protection from deadly diseases (verse 3), deliverance from danger (verses 5-6), and the assurance of God’s constant presence (verse 15). In verses 14-16, God is described as the “Most High” who will “rescue [the psalmist] from the snare of the fowler” and “protect [the psalmist] from deadly pestilence.”
Throughout history, Psalm 91 has been a source of comfort and strength for many individuals and communities. During times of war and persecution, it was a reminder of God’s protection and care. In medieval times, it was seen as a protection against the bubonic plague, and many people would recite the psalm as a way of warding off illness.
Today, Psalm 91 continues to be a popular passage in both Jewish and Christian traditions. It is often read or recited as a prayer for protection and comfort, and is seen as a reminder of God’s constant love and care for those who trust in him. This is reflected in verse 14: “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.”
In conclusion, Psalm 91 is a powerful testimony to the strength and comfort that can be found in God. Through its words of trust and confidence, it has been a source of hope and inspiration for generations, and continues to offer comfort and protection to all who turn to it in times of need.
