Please read Psalm 61, 62, 64, 65, 66, and 67 this morning. Have you considered reading these in a translation that is unfamiliar to you? For me, it gives me a new perspective at times. For this year, I’m using the Message – what translation do you like to read?
I’ve never read the Psalms in the Message translation before – this is a new one to me. I love how I’m hearing them in a new way! Listen to this:
“You’ve always given me breathing room,
a place to get away from it all,
A lifetime pass to your safe-house,
an open invitation as your guest.
You’ve always taken me seriously, God,
made me welcome among those who know and love you” (Psalm 61:3-5 MSG)
Do you ever “change it up” and read a new translation? Don’t let the Word become common!
