        but only one god.

          A lovely write Brian. Some places never touch on 'obscurer' Psalms. Except in the dreaded 'Sung Psalm' which only the choir knows the tune to, and they're not telling us what it is. It 'murders the Psalms' - horrid phrase!
          A horrible 'game' of 'Guess the Psalm tune/chant'. Well, we all know No.23. Maybe No.100 too, and some others are well-known too.

            Thanks STEVE ~ We had 23 this morning ! It is part of a TRILOGY ~ 22 ~ The Cross 23 ~ The Crook 24 ~ The Crown JESUS concealed in the OT ! Pleased you liked my take on Psalm 59 ! Yours BRIAN

            Thank you Brian.

            A beautiful write.

            The Lord is my light and my salvation
            Whom shall I fear.
            The Lord is the stronghold of my life.
            Of whom shall I be afraid.
            Psalm 27:1

            Keep writing Brian
