Day Sixteen


Day 16, Saturday 19th March

Hello,

If you are new to my blog, then for the next few days of Lent things will be a little different.  We are learning Psalm 22, a poem about Easter, to raise money for Tearfund. I am attempting to learn the poem in Hebrew, others are learning it in English, Spanish or Mandarin.

Do sign up to follow my blog if you want to join our mental marathon. I will post an extract of the poem every day. Learn as much as you can…

If you would like to sponsor me, please see my Just Giving page:

Psalm 22


15. my strength is dried up like a potsherd,
and my tongue sticks to my jaws;
you lay me in the dust of death.

יָבֵשׁ כַּחֶרֶשׂ ׀ כֹּחִי וּלְשׁוֹנִי  מֻדְבָּק מַלְקוֹחָי וְֽלַעֲפַר־מָוֶת תִּשְׁפְּתֵֽנִי׃

15我的力量枯竭如焦土,我的舌头发干紧贴上颚。你把我放在死亡的尘土中。

15 Se ha secado mi vigor como una teja;
la lengua se me pega al paladar.
¡Me has hundido en el polvo de la muerte!
