Reading Psalms and other texts comforts and accompanies the soul between death and burial. Learn more
In keeping with the historical practice of protecting the dead, today between death and burial family or community members read Psalms in the presence of the deceased.
To sooth the feelings of confusion of the deceased between death and burial, we read Psalms to ensure they are not left alone and to provide comfort.
Hovering near the body, the soul experiences disorientation and uncertainty between death and burial, so we read comforting words to the soul.
