A Little Old Testament Fun

... from Twitter.

I've got a couple of posts rolling around in my head, but I don't have time to do them justice, so I'll leave you with this little bit of silliness.

When I was an undergrad, in my Biblical Hebrew class I used to have the bad habit of translating it first into normal and literal English, and then into very colloquial English. It's been decades, but I remember throwing in a lot of, "Yo!" and "Hey!" and the occasional "Dude." My very old, very prior professor actually found it amusing. And if I missed on providing a reasonably accurate colloquial translation, he'd prod me into one.

I love it! One of our sons suggested a Bill and Ted version. The 11th commandment would be "Party on, dudes!"

Our pa, who's up yonder,
holy be your name,
your homestead come,

That's all I got.
