Still a bit cryptic, lolif it actually says we are supposed to walk around Zion I guess any clue to where that is might be helpful.
Still a bit cryptic, lol
Go on -- no worries -- we won't let you start a flame war because we are about interfaith more than world politics, but so far you are in a safe place to say what you want to say ...
People are listening and interested
I'm following you over here from @Ross S Marshall thread 'EUHEMRISM- Mythology as Symbolically Glossed History'I would like to take the bible literally. I do not know if that's actually safe here.
to that end its helpful if the words of the bible are correct to the author.
re Zoroaster... well there is his avatar... so I used yimkard because I would have no problem calling Zion that to avoid any war.
I dunno. this sure looks like someone has a centipede by the tail [if you like your egyptian] and the fella leading the animals is not unique to this [if you like your Akkadian]. I do not think a Romanian was ever privy to such imagery.
see the coffer and the 4 canoes pulled up outside? that is recent archaeology. no way they knew.

Why? Scripture itself points out that the literal is insufficient.I would like to take the bible literally.
The psalm is like an abstract painting, one can give any meaning to it.
But those who do not accept the above scripture as authority of ownership obviously disagree. From there on it's political? I'm not getting involved, believe me, lol"Walk about Zion and go around her;
Count her towers;
Consider her ramparts;
Go through her palaces,
That you may tell it to the next generation."
probably the authors were going for simple and direct.
a little less diversity in our understanding of GOD.

Ok. Still very cryptic, lol ..."For, lo, the kings assembled themselves,
They passed by together.
They saw it, then they were amazed;
They were terrified, they fled in alarm.
Panic seized them there,
Anguish, as of a woman in childbirth.
With the east wind
You break the ships of Tarshish."
politicians better watch themselves apparently...
Maybe there is even a Malthusianism in another spot.
again... on a little less diversity
51 O ye messengers! Eat of the good things, and do right. Lo! I am Aware of what ye do.
52 And lo! this your religion is one religion and I am your Lord, so keep your duty unto Me.
53 But they have broken their religion among them into sects, each group rejoicing in its tenets.
54 So leave them in their error till a time appointed.
