Yesterday, the news reports that medieval copy of the partial Psalms was found in an Irish bog.
Lets read that and learn something….. Psalm 83.
But wait – that’s not right. Psalm 83 is not what they are talking about….. Hmmm.
Oh, this explains it.
Protestants. Now why would they be running around 500 years before Luther, re-numbering this little book of Latin Psalms and adding all that flowery language? I mean the copyist who wrote it was obviously Catholic, as there was no other Christian choice available at the time. But the MSM references a Protestant source. Confuses me. Maybe Seamus the scribe was a good Catholic, but a dyslexic and changed the numbers? Maybe the MSM made it all up?
Just goes to show you – don’t believe everything you find on the web – like Protestant Bible references to an obviously Catholic work.
Here’s what they really found – Psalm 82 (latin included)
The interesting thing to me in all this is a deeper question – Why are the numberings different in the two Bibles. (Bonus Points is you can spell Proto-Canonical).
It’s still pretty inspiring to think of Israel’s history, however, be it Psalm 82 or 83. I’m sure that they’ll do just fine in their current trials.
