Thoughts and Reflections on Scripture

This Psalm is very interesting to me simply because in most English translations, the second half is so hard to understand.

In coming up with the lyrics, I read many English translations before I finally found one that seemed to make a little sense. Maybe it's just me being dense, and you'll say you have never had a problem making sense of the words.

I finally settled on a translation that isn't terribly popular: Today's Living Bible. Since nearly every song in my collection uses the New Revised Standard Version, I felt a bit guilty for going this way, but I would rather a song that made sense.

It's actually quite beautiful, isn't it? It seems fitting too, in a day-and-age when Jerusalem and the nation of Israel are so often slandered by the media and those outside the Christian or Jewish religion.

God bless you!
