40




It's my theme this week...one of my favorite psalms, and OH YEAH...one of the best concert-enders EVER! (Another nerd revelation for you...I've experienced it in person 11 times.)

Kit,

You are my hero.

(By the way, it's Psalm 39 in the Douay-Rheims Bible. Bit of trivia for ya.)

Very interesting! I did not know that - Mom still has the Douay-Rheims Bible at home...I plan to snatch it eventually. :) I've got the Jerusalem Bible here (the one Mother Angelica uses with the little needlepoint cover - bought it in Hanceville a few years ago) and indeed it is #40."Yahweh" is used in place of "Lord" - another excellent and more recent U2 song.

Kit,
In the DR, Psalms 9 and 10 are one Psalm, so the numbering is different after that.

Oh, how GREAT is the song "Yahweh!"
Like Bono said in concert, "If you can't do what they want, do it quick" and then he launches into that most underappreciated song.

I had had that CD for a looong time before I realized "All Because of You" was about YAHWEH!
I LOVE THAT SONG.

And you know about the "Uno, Dos, Tres, Catorce" meaning, right?

WoOOOOOOO great album fellas!
