Ron,

I hope your translation is going well, what an enormous project.

I have a neat question for you:

I was scanning your Psalm translations and commentaries and I came accross Psalm 118. I have always wanted to know what the subtitles mean: ALEPH, BETH, GHIMEL, DALETH, VAU, ZAIN, HETH, and so on. They always remind me of Star Trek like some Vulcan language or something.

Climacus

Also you know what would be really, really, really cool. Maybe someday you could publish a pocketbook edition of your psalms. There is one out know but its outdated and has a whole bunch of annoying pictures in it, plus the words are too small. Just a thought.

They represent the names of each letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The transliterations into English are a bit odd. It is interesting to note that when Jesus spoke to John, in the quote found in the Book of Revelation, he probably did not speak in Greek: I am the Alpha and the Omega. He probably spoke in Hebrew (or maybe Aramaic), so it would be: I am the Aleph and the Tav.

I had been working on that, but I put the project aside, because I did not think there would be much interest.

Thumbs up

Your prayer intentions will be remembered tonight in my rosary, Ron. God bless you for all of the work that you do.

Thanks Joey and Climacus

I'm currently working on translating the New Testament, the Gospel of Luke.

Ron,

Once again thank you for your insight on the Psalms. Now I dont have to think of Star Trek when I pray #118!

And concerning a pocket edition of the psalms, it is a shame there is not much interest. I for myself hope and pray to God for two things when I die. First that I am conscious to the last breath, and two that I am praying the psalms, especially #6 my favorite, with my last breath.

I think the psalms next to the rosary are the greatest private prayers we can offer to God.

If you ever take up this project, I would buy several for myself and others. And I could go to the local Catholic book stores and try to get a order placed for you. Also I live two blocks from the Cathedral, maybe the Bishop would want to buy some for his study groups.

Climacus

I'm working on a printed edition of the Pslams now.
It will be 6 x 9 inches. I'm developing a cover design.
It will be print on demand from lulu.com when its done.
The formatting of the text is all done. It's just mainly the cover
that needs to be finished.

Thanks,


Ron

Default de: Psalms

Thanks Ron,

This is good, good news. I got a big smile on my face. No more having to pull out my big bible in order to recite the psalms. My first order will be 4. One for my apartment, office, car, and backpack (I hope this isnt spiritual gluttony). I went to lulu.com I didnt know that such a thing existed. So to clarify we order from lulu?

Once it is ready, I'll post a message here with a link to the right page at lulu.com to purchase the book.

It may be a few weeks.
