What do the palms tell you in the bible?

The brief descriptions that introduce the psalms have David listed as author in 73 instances. David's personality and identity are clearly stamped on many of these psalms. While it is clear that David wrote many of the individual psalms, he is definitely not the author of the entire collection. The Book of Psalms is a collection of prayers, poems, and hymns that focus the worshiper's thoughts on God in praise and adoration. Parts of this book were used as a hymnal in the worship services of ancient Israel. We can bring all our feelings to God-no matter how negative or complaining they may be-and we can rest assured that He will hear and understand. The psalmist teaches us that the most profound prayer of all is a cry for help as we find ourselves overwhelmed by the problems of life.http://www.gotquestions.org/Book-of-Psalms.html

You are actually right. I think it's the first time I tell you that. What I find intriguing is that you never argue that Psalms is a prophecy book (and indeed it is not), yes on occasion you argues that some prayers there are prophecies.

OK , here is comes.
God's provision of a Savior for His people is a recurring theme in the Psalms. Prophetic pictures of the Messiah are seen in numerous psalms. Psalm 2:1-12 portrays the Messiah's triumph and kingdom. Psalm 16:8-11 foreshadows His death and resurrection. Psalm 22 shows us the suffering Savior on the cross and presents detailed prophecies of the crucifixion, all of which were fulfilled perfectly. The glories of the Messiah and His bride are on exhibit in Psalm 45:6-7, while Psalms 72:6-17, 89:3-37, 110:1-7 and 132:12-18 present the glory and universality of His reign.
Practical Application: One of the results of being filled with the Spirit or the word of Christ is singing. The psalms are the "songbook" of the early church that reflected the new truth in Christ.

The Psalms in the bible were written to glorify God and also give encouragement in the process. That is why it is made up of hymns and thanksgiving psalms. Read more: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psalms.

The Psalms are David's prayers and songs for the Lord.
