Treasure Island

Roy Allen

Today... 'Jehovah, The God who gives breath to all living things'

The God who gives breath to all living things
to His people on earth a shepherd brings.
To walk before them and to lead them through
the vale of death to heavenly pastures new.
Then life eternal He breathes into them
and they become His royal diadem.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Numbers 27: 15-17—15 Moses said to the LORD,16 “May the LORD, the God who gives breath to all living things, appoint someone over this community 17 to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the LORD’s people will not be like sheep without a shepherd.”

Isaiah 62: 3—You will be a crown of splendor in the Lord’s hand, a royal diadem in the hand of your God.

If, in the NIV version, the word LORD is printed in capital letters, then the word in the original Hebrew is either 'Jehovah' (or 'Yahweh' in the currently accepted scholarship) or its shortened version 'Jah'. (as in 'Hallelu Jah') 'Lord' translates Adonai.

All quotations ©NIV

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'Jehovah, The God who gives breath to all living things'

    I do admire your obvious deep faith but I'm not sure it's poetry you write. Still I would defend your right to express whatever floats your boat and if gives you pleasure who am I to cast the first stone. BB : O) (Report) Reply

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
