I lost my Bible on a greyhound bus. Finally replaced.
Getting into the books that included Job and Psalms.
I’m most surprised at how much reference there is to humans being the ‘highest’ creature. Incredibly interesting research has surfaced recently on other animals’ level of conscience. The most notable event was the signing of the declaration of consciousness by incredibly well respected researchers (attended by Stephen Hawking). They declaring that many animals have what they’re defining as forms of consciousness very similar to our own.
In any case, I do enjoy the benevolent sentiment of Psalms more-so than the books that come before it.
