Shakespeare translated Psalm 46

Sarcasm alert…

Did you know that Shakespeare was involved in the translation of the King James Version of the Bible? It’s true! He even made sure that proper attribution would be made by inserting his name in code in the 46th Psalm. The 46th word from the beginning is shake and the 46th word from the end is spear.

Just thought I’d share that with you. It was in today’s Our Daily Bread devotional.

    That seems very far-fetched.

    Indeed. :)

    Okay, apparently my sense of humor and sarcasm are not well understood on the blogosphere. Let me state it plainly: I do NOT believe that Shakespeare had anything to do with the translation of the Bible. I assumed everyone would draw that conclusion from the link provided, which states, “no serious evidence supports this theory.”

    I missed the sarcasm alert.. some of us are way too dull these days :(

  5. casey says:

    The sarcasm alert was added after the fact. This isn’t the first time I have disguised my sarcasm too well. Sorry for the confusion. I’ll try to be more careful in the future.

    I love your sarcasm Casey – I think it’s hilarious that you have added an ‘alert’ feature – LOL!

  7. casey says:

    That way I can have the best of both worlds. :)

  8. Kansas Bob says:

    I wonder what other kinds of alerts we could all put on our blogs? How about ‘Cliche Alert’ or ‘Absurd Alert’ or … guess I am out of alerts.

  9. Mulled Vine says:

    I agree – its superb that you had to add an alert! LOL

    Hmm, this could be the start of something big! Just remember, this is where it all started!

    Oh too funny!! You know, I do the same thing. I’m sarcastic so often that my children often ask me if something I said was sarcasm. Unfortunately, it’s usually when I’m thanking them for somthing. :) I thank them all the time, but whatever. :) I like that you have to use an alert too. Blessings to you!
