psalm 8 remixed

A targum of Psalm 8:

  1. Yahweh our Master!
    Your Name is priceless throughout the universe!
    Your glory is unsearchable and inscrutable
    and utterly beyond our capability to measure.
  2. Even the smallest and inexperienced ones; yes – babies
    they praise you – just as you wanted
    all this is like ignorant and inane babbling to those who hate you,
    yet this incoherent baby-noise completely silences sinners and evil-doers.
  3. When I ponder the chaotic-order of the cosmos,
    the mechanics of your workshop,
    whether multiple distant galaxies or single stars,
    knowing you plan and place them all,
  4. I wonder why you bother thinking of mere humans,
    or why you concern yourself with homosapiens?
  5. But – no other thing you’ve created comes as close to your divine greatness,
    potential and power, reason and rhyme; you gave it – we have it.
  6. Everything that you’ve created, we are now responsible for;
    under God and over creation:
  7. …over the lions and llamas,
    and every land-dwelling animal,
  8. …over every single thing that flies in the air,
    and every thing in fresh-water or salt-water,
    indeed – every kind of ocean-floor crawling and swimming thing.
  9. Yahweh our Master!
    Your Name is priceless throughout the universe!

The Romans 1:1-17 targum wasn’t enough…

…I had to post this one as well…

Again, I advise reading these two simple verses in an easy-to-read translation before reading the targum…

In case it’s not obvious, Walsh is anything but a typical ‘republican-style’ Christian…

If this doesn’t stir your heart, check your pulse… Continue reading “brian walsh: targum of Romans 12:1-2”

brian walsh: targum of Romans 1:1-17

Read Romans 1:1-17 (in a good, easy to read translation like NIV or CEV), and then check out Brian J. Walsh’s ‘targum’ (an interpretive ‘modernisation’ of a given passage) of it… (Copied from here)

I just love this stuff…
