One Answer from That Psalm to That Question

June 14, 2016

How long, O Lord? asks Psalm 13:1 in the New International Version.

Long enough, God, declares The Message Version.

How long wilt Thou forget me, O Lord? For ever?  wonders the 21st Century King James Version.

How much longer, Lord? Will it be forever? How long will you hide? demands the Contemporary English Version.

…And the reply comes back, Let me ask you the same question.

  2. Ouch, indeed! I still quickly picked my Bible up. Did I miss this verse? Or, was that God’s answer in that second verse? “How long will You hide Your face from me?”
