Day 19, Wednesday 23rd March
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…

17. I can count all my bones—
they stare and gloat over me;
אֲסַפֵּר כָּל־עַצְמוֹתָי הֵמָּה יַבִּיטוּ יִרְאוּ־בִֽי׃
17 Puedo contar todos mis huesos;
con satisfacción perversa
la gente se detiene a mirarme.
Now, those are striking lines!
Yes, especially if you believe that Jesus was reciting them while on the cross.
