Ancient Book of Psalms Found in Ireland

From Breaking Christian News.com

Irish archaeologists, on Tuesday, confirmed an incredible find by a construction worker who was digging up a bog near Ireland's midlands, last week, when "just beyond the bucket of the bulldozer, he spotted something".

Pat Wallace, director of the Nation Museum of Ireland, remarked, "This is really a miracle find. There's two sets of odds that make this discovery really way out. First of all, it's unlike that something this fragile could survive buried in a bog at all, and then for it to be unearthed and spotted before it was destroyed, is incalculably more amazing".

According to AOL News, The 20-page book of Psalms, dated back to the years 800-1000, and was found open to Psalm 83, in which God hears complaints of other nations' attempts to wipe out the name of Israel.

The discovery becomes even more miraculous with the fact that Jerusalem's Chief rabbinate, Monday, called for worldwide prayer on behalf of Israel, to begin on Tuesday; one of the text given to pray was Psalm 83.

Just a coincidence? Maybe...or maybe not. I believe that we will find even more fascinating discoveries like these in the near future.

Ron, I've known you your whole life, yet learned more about you in the last 15 minutes than ever before. I had no idea that you were a man with so many serious thoughts about our world. Keep up the good work. Hard, but worth it!

Hey Debbie,
Well...everybody has an opinion. I just decided to write my opinions down on a computer screen.
You bet it's hard work, especially when you can't spell or type!;)

Thanks for the comment!

I had heard about that find...comparing it to the Dead Sea Scrolls in significance.

As soon as I learned about the discovery, I thought about the DSS.
Psalms 83 fits "perfectly" with what is taking place right now!
