I'm A Guest At Blest!

This week I am the guest blogger at Elizabeth Mahlou's blog, Blest Atheist. Click the link to read my post, Thank God For Good Bible Translations. This was a post I wrote several months ago in response to an article I read by the late Fr. Richard Neuhaus in First Things magazine. It is thanks to him that my Bible of choice is the Douay~Rheims version.
This topic of Bible translations has come up on several blogs I follow, so I thought it a good time to re-post this post here.
Thank you to Elizabeth for having me as a guest on her wonderful blog this week. Enjoy my post and your visit to Blest Atheist.
Please keep Elizabeth's travels in your prayers.

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
