Cosmic coincidence! I have only a cursory knowledge of the Bible, so did not know that this quote is from Psalm 23, nor how it continues. That is until five minutes ago, when I reach page 212 of “The Venetian Files”, a recent novel about the financial crisis and the history of banking coauthored by a friend of mine, and there it is! Admittedly in the translation “..., and I lack nothing”, but I got the point. Almost spooky.very good!
but where does that leave "I shall not want." ?
It went up in the post-Viking era?𝕳𝖊𝖗𝖗𝖊𝖓 𝖊𝖗 𝖒𝖎𝖓 𝖍𝖞𝖗𝖉𝖊
This was prominently displayed on the wall of the tiny two room cabin where I spent several family vacations as a child. It's a common biblical quote translated into Norwegian: "the Lord is my shepherd", but anybody I know would slightly misread the first letter in the last word as a "b" rather than an "h" (not being native readers of the Gothic font). In which case it turns into the much more reasonable "the Lord is my burden".
