Poetry To The Ears III: Psalm 119

**Additional Background to Psalm 119, excerpted from  “50 Facts and Links for Psalm 119,” Posted by Sherry on 1/4/2015
@ semicolon Blog
http://www.semicolonblog.com/?p=22735

Eight Hebrew words are used to refer to God’s Word in Psalm 119.

1. The first word is promise or word, dabar in Hebrew; used 24 times: it means God’s spoken, revealed word.
2. The second word is saying, imrah in Hebrew, used 19 times: this is another way to say word, anything God has spoken, commanded or promised.
3. The third word is statutes, chuqqim, used 21 times: these are the rules that God gave to His people early in their history. It can be translated “laws”.
4. The fourth word is judgments, mishpatim, used 23 times: a later word for statutes, can be translated as judgements or rules or rulings.
5. The fifth word is law, torah, used 25 times: this means the first 5 books of the Bible. Later it included other books like Isaiah and Jeremiah. It is translated as “law” or “teaching” or even “revelation”.
6. The sixth word is commands, miswah/miswot, used 22 times: what someone with authority (God) tells you to do, orders.
7. The seventh word is precepts, piqqudim, used 21 times: these give us help when we want to know what to do. This word is sometimes translated as “guidelines” or “instructions” in Psalm 119.
8. The eighth word is testimonies, eduth, used 23 times: these are the things that God tells us to do. Related to the word “witness”, keeping His testimonies means being loyal to the covenant or promise that God has made with us.

Dear Parents…

In response to many inquiries about online materials for educating children in the faith, please see our link to “Catholic Sites on the Web” at the bottom of the ‘About Us” page. It is in downloadable PDF format for your ready use.
Regarding inquiries about a suitable Bible for children, it is important that it have the ‘nihil obstat’ and  ‘imprimatur’* of the Bishop in whose diocese the Bible was published. This is especially important for two reasons: first, the Bible must contain all the canonical books – 46 Old Testament and 27 New Testament books; and, secondly, the comments and footnotes must be in accord with Catholic Church teaching.
You should personally inspect selections to determine that the vocabulary is age-appropriate. Not every publisher takes pains to avoid the inclusion of strictly adult terms.

*for an explanation of these Latin technical words, please refer to
http://catholicstraightanswers.com/what-are-imprimatur-and-nihil-obstat-in-catholic-book/

 
       Bible Story books can be quite attractive to children, and again we urge caution—stories can be told in a captivating way and still miss what the Church had determined should be learned from the account. An imprimatur in these story books is essential as well.

For our purposes in preparing the June issues of The Catholic Tugboat we have consulted and adapted from approved print materials listed at the top of this web page.
