Verse of the Day

Sometimes I just love the paraphrasing in the Message.  It’s so refreshing and full of excitement. I mean look at the Bible Gateway Verse of the Day today.  I had my settings in my browser set to a Spanish version when I hit the site this morning. (long story why I was reading the Spanish Bible). The verse of the day looked like this:

La exposición de Tus palabras imparte luz; Da entendimiento a los sencillos.

Salmos 119:130 NBLH

But in the Message!  WOW!

Every word you give me is a miracle word— how could I help but obey? Break open your words, let the light shine out, let ordinary people see the meaning. Mouth open and panting, I wanted your commands more than anything. Turn my way, look kindly on me, as you always do to those who personally love you. Steady my steps with your Word of promise so nothing malign gets the better of me. Rescue me from the grip of bad men and women so I can live life your way. Smile on me, your servant; teach me the right way to live. I cry rivers of tears because nobody’s living by your book!

Psalm 119:130 MSG

Let us always be ready to learn the  right way to live.
