Scripture Saturday

Hear my voice, O God, as I complain.
~Psalm 64:1

I love this translation of this psalm verse!  "Here my voice, O God, as I complain"!!  God can, at the same time, be the Almighty in the heavens, and, someone we go to occasionally to "complain."

Interesting. The Hebrew word being translated is שִׂיחַ siyach, trans;ated as: meditation, complaint, musing, plaint.

Some Psalm 64:1 translations:

Hear, O God, my voice, in my meditation, From the fear of an enemy Thou keepest my life,

Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

Hear me, O God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy.

Thanks for that info!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
