From the Morning Scripture Readings

Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

–Psalm 30: 11, 12 KJV

  1. Sherri says:

    Oh, this speaks to me this morning, for it is raining in Georgia and I have been out barefooted and bare-headed to feel and taste the rain and God’s tender mercy. They say it won’t be enough, the drought won’t end, the fires won’t be put out – but it is rain and it is good and the drooping flowers are raising their heads, the paper-thin leaves look glossy, wet and full. The birds are making soft hopeful sounds in the shrubbery. May God’s name be praised.

  2. Kendall Harmon says:

    This is but one more example of a Bible passage where the King James version is still superior to all the others in my view.

  3. Sherri says:

    For me, there are so many of those, Dr. Harmon.

  4. Stefano says:

    Better than the original? I find that a surprising notion.

  5. Kendall Harmon says:

    I said better than all the other versions, i.e. translations. I much prefer the Hebrew.
