2 Samuel 1:19 ff
David's elegy on the death of Saul and Jonathan. I could use some feedback if anyone who plays harp would like to try this. I have made the accompaniment simple, and somewhat helpful, I think. Pitch it where it is comfortable for the instruments. I probably...

Isaiah 49:1-7 yet again
What can you do when you can't sing? or don't sing? or wish you didn't have to sing and the text is a musical line. This - very simply: pay attention to the reciting note and tune your reading voice to the tone of the text . For Isaiah 49, this morning's le...

Exodus 24
Loaded words. What is a loaded word? This chapter has two distinct stories. Distinct is loaded, story is loaded. There are some difficult sentences to parse. Moses seems dismissive to the people at the base of the mountain. In some ways, he got what he dese...

Links
A couple of interesting links today in my various aggregators via Pet Enns on authority,  The Bible is a paradoxical (and messy and complex and un-untanglable) convergence of divine and human involvement. via Jim Davila, on gods of the ancient near east  Yh...

Jeremiah 43
Another short chapter that appeared. Jeremiah may be somewhat repetitive because his chapters are high on my to do list. (The automation can translate over 50% of them.) I will show some analysis in another post. So here's a short read for the evening or th...

Jeremiah 44
I have many thoughts on this extended word against the return to Egypt, but I will share them only under duress. What completes? What is the sign? Why this extensive diatribe? What does Egypt represent? Why the extended jealousy? Why such intransigence in t...

2 Samuel 1
Surprise! I chose a chapter that was far down the list. I want to develop a piece for harp and voice that will capture David's dirge over Saul and Jonathan. The language is quite stark, but we have sung such stark language in church for the first lesson a f...

Isaiah 49:1-7
I should have done this ages ago. If anyone is reading the lesson tomorrow and wants to see how it might be sung in English, the music is here with underlay. It's rough. You would need to work with it to perform it. I am reading, but I think I will just rea...

2 Kings 17
It's somewhat easy to see why this chapter bubbled up to the top of my list after I had done the chapters on the reforms under Josiah ( reforms is a gentle word for his severity). My 1962 Jerusalem Bible titles verses 24 ff as 'The Origin of the Samaritans'...

Project status
With 501 chapters to go here is my status on the books I have not yet read. I mis-numbered and therefore mis-named my prior post - put it down to scribal fatigue. If you can't find 23 try 43. BOOK Total Verses Average % chapter complete  Highest % chapter c...
