The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid. - Jane Austen

Spanish Lords Prayer

Posted on

I got a Spanish/English Bible last year for Christmas, which has Spanish down one side of the page and English down the other. I thought it would help me improve my Spanish. Not so much, but I do like this.

Padre nuestro que estás en los cielos
Santificado sea tu nombre
Vénganos tu reino
Hágase tu voluntad, así en la tierra como en el cielo
El pan nuestro de cada día, dánoslo hoy
Y perdónanos nuestros ofensas así como nosotros perdónamos a los que nos ofenden
Y no nos dejes caer en tentación
Mas líbranos del mal
Porque tuyo es el reino, el poder y la gloria,
Por los siglos de los siglos
Amen

Modern Day Lords Prayer

Posted on

God in heaven, you’re our Dad.
We respect everything you stand for,
We want others to.
Please bring heaven on earth.
People living life your way, like the angels do.
Please bring us what we need to keep us going each day.
Please acquit us, as we cancel our grievances and throw them all away.
Please pull us back from the edge of evil,
If we’re falling or being thrown,
Cos you’re all that matters,
You’re able to do it and you’re to take the credit.
You’re on your own.
It’s your throne.
Absolutely!
Taken from The Word on The Street by Rob Lacey
This is an amazingly written interpretation of the bible, written in modern language, and reads a lot like a novel. A brilliant read, and all the more amazing by the fact that it was written while Rob Lacey was battling cancer. Sadly he lost the battle after he wrote the follow-up book – The Liberator.
