I recently came upon a delightful challenge to biblical meditation specially tailored for us #wordnerds. The challenge is to rewrite Psalm 23 alliteratively, that is, using a single letter for as many words as possible. I’m currently working on Q, and I’ll add it at the bottom when I’m finished. But in the meantime, here’s my meditation using the letter S. I hope it blesses you. Find L and G at the link above.
Psalm 23 in the Letter S
The Sovereign is my shepherd,
I am sufficiently supplied.
He settles me in a supple country side,
He escorts me beside silent streams,
He strengthens my soul.
He steers me straight on suitable streets
For the sake of his historic significance.
Suppose I stumble through shadowed situations,
Still I am not scared of Satan,
For you surround me;
Your stick and your staff soothe me.
You set a sumptuous spread before me
In sight of my disparagers.
You smear my skull with slick oil;
My glass spills with surplus.
Surely your sanctification and security will support me
Through the sunset of my life span,
Thus I will stand in the shelter of the All-Sufficient One ceaselessly.
