Because I had often read the Psalms in the King James Version, that language was the basis of my meditation. But, because of the personal nature of my reflection, the language was no longer third person, but second person: I was addressing myself to the Spirit directly.In addition to this grammatical change, I tended to be inclusive as well: “Blessed is the one” rather than “Blessed is the man.” I also used alternative words for the various divine titles.

Thus, “guide” instead of “Lord” for YHWH. Since the Hebrew is a personal name rather than a title, as in the KJV, the word “guide” is at least as accurate as “Lord.”Out of this experience of Elizabethan language and inclusive wording while meditating on the Psalms, grew this brief experimental book. It reflects my thoughts of several years ago, which are still very similar to most of my practice today.There are 27 units of Text, Text Notes, and Reflection.

These units cover the first ten Psalms of the Hebrew Bible. The Text section quotes a few verses from the King James Inclusive Version (K-JIV). The Text Notes have a few comments related to translation issues. Finally, there is a brief reflection on the text in a very personal way.I publish this book with the hope that you will find something useful to meditate upon during your own times of celebration.
