Pesukei d'zimra literally means verses of song (or praise). These are selected Scriptural passages that have been incorporated into the morning liturgy. The verses of praise occupy the first section of the morning prayers, followed by the blessings preceding the Shema prayer, and then the Amidah or Shmoneh Esrei (18 benedictions).
