It has been a while since yours truly has composed another webpage, being that he has been busy campaigning for Donald Trump, campaigning against Hillary Clinton, carting the wife and mother-in-law around to medical clinics, recuperating from the complications of my car being rear-ended by a guy with a jewel in his left earlobe who was paying more attention to the computer tablet alongside him than traffic ahead of him, plus gazing and masturbating at porn of various types (because of sexually-deprived-biological-clock-based, warm-weather-immodesty-of-women-around-me-imposing-non-asked-for sexual-harassment, duress) -- besides doing a whole lot of other things, of course, such as eating out with the not-living-with-her, quasi-affectionate, lovingly-faithful-and-kind-and-generous wife but who is not exactly a non-injured nympho.
But "it's about time" that I write something, to keep in shape using my maybe-not-that-meager God-given literary talent (among other abilities) for which I will be held accountable as to utilization when I meet Him in the future.
The title for this piece is based upon a certain portion of RSV Old-Testament Scripture which reads as follows:
Song of Solomon 7:1 How graceful are your feet in sandals, O queenly maiden! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand.
2 Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies.
3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.
4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, overlooking Damascus.
5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
6 How fair and pleasant you are, O loved one, delectable maiden!
7 You are stately as a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.
8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its branches. Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,
9 and your kisses like the best wine that goes down smoothly, gliding over lips and teeth.
10 I am my beloved's, and his desire is for me.
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the fields, and lodge in the villages;
12 let us go out early to the vineyards, and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.
13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and over our doors are all choice fruits, new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
Now, I must perhaps apologize to all you KJV devotees out there in cyberspace for what quite probably could and should be considered only-SOMEWHAT overly-explicit wording of the RSV as to the passage quoted above (not simply the airplane-flight term: "gliding" in verse RSV's Song verse 9).
However, one particular verse contains a MUCH-needed DOCTRINE-vital correction against the KJV reading, and not a "mere insignificant nitpicky trifle," which is the RSV's and NASB's inclusion of the Hebrew-Text-based words: "flowing locks" (i.e. mopheaded long hair hanging loose below mouth-level) in verse 5 above.
What IS too graphic is the RSV reading in verse 1 above, where the Hebrew Text clearly indicates the proper term to use is: "footsteps" instead of: "feet" (and incidentally an alternative word in verse 1 to use instead of: "queenly" might be: "royal").
Be that as it is, what is described in verses 1 through 5 in Song of Solomon chapter 7 (printed above) sounds very much like the alluded-to-in-that-passage gender-at-birth FEMALE-human woman (NOT "man" - and sorry, all your despicably perverted and disgusting transgendered/transsexual/transvestite types) is attired in the equivalent of mere panties and bra (maybe not the bra in verse 3?) or the top and bottom parts of a bikini...
...typical clothing worn in both-adult-genders-present general public view at most public beaches by sunbathing or modeling live and in-person plus televised lewd-and-lurid female exhibitionists here in America (and recall what I previously wrote about me viewing tons of internet porn over the past several weeks, months, and years in understandably-though-not-legitimate logically-responsive retaliatory and deprivationally-retributional reaction against such vile and filthy garbage-and-guttermind-equivalent female sex objects and their supportive male patsies).
It is CRUCIAL to keep in mind that the author of that Song of Solomon snippet of Holy Writ was NOT describing some anonymous-or-name-known whore, slut, floozy, prostitute, masseuse, escort, or even mistress in that Song of Solomon passage -- but instead HIS OWN BRIDE in PRIVATE SECLUSION AWAY from PUBLIC view, and FOR HIS EYES ONLY.
The immediate or closely-surrounding context substantiates that, and also the wider context within that Old-Testament book:
Song of Solomon 2:14 [RSV] O my dove, in the clefts of the rock, in the covert of the cliff, let me see your face, let me hear your voice, for your voice is sweet, and your face is comely.
Translated (including paraphrase) into "modern" English:
"My gentle dove-like spouse, when we're secluded out of public-view sight and privately together whether in cave or Motel 6 or similar, let me see ONLY YOUR face and hear ONLY YOUR voice, being that both are sweet and attractive, respectively -- instead of the feminist-sexist porno faces of chauvinistic TV anchoresses and newscasteresses or even that of Hillary Clinton."
Speaking of being overly-explicit CONCERNING (and not "regarding") Bible translation wording, consider the following truly-disparate renditions of MKJV compared with the RSV, ESV, NASB, and similar other modern "translations:"
Isaiah 47:1 Come down, and sit on the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground. There is no throne for you, O daughter of the Chaldeans. For you shall no more be called tender and delicate.
2 Take the millstones and grind meal. Push back your veil, draw up your skirt, uncover your leg, pass over the rivers.
3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, your shame shall be seen; I will take vengeance and I will not meet you as a man.
4 Our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts is His name, the Holy One of Israel.
Isaiah 47:1 Come down and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans! For you shall no more be called tender and delicate.
2 Take the millstones and grind meal, put off your veil, strip off your robe, uncover your legs, pass through the rivers.
3 Your nakedness shall be uncovered, and your shame shall be seen. I will take vengeance, and I will spare no man.
4 Our Redeemer--the LORD of hosts is his name--is the Holy One of Israel.
Jeremiah 2:21 Yet I planted you a noble vine, wholly a true seed. How then have you turned into the degenerate shoots of an alien vine to Me?
22 For though you wash yourself with potash, and multiply soap for yourself, yet your iniquity is marked before Me, says the Lord GOD.
23 How can you say, I am not defiled; I have not gone after the Baals? See your way in the valley, know what you have done! You are a swift camel crossing its ways;
24 a wild ass used to the wilderness; in the desire of her passion she snuffs at the wind; in her time who can turn her away? All those who seek her will not tire themselves; in her month they will find her.
25 Withhold your foot from being bare, and your throat from thirst. But you said, There is no hope; no; for I have loved strangers, and after them I will go.
Jeremiah 2:21 Yet I planted you a choice vine, wholly of pure seed. How then have you turned degenerate and become a wild vine?
22 Though you wash yourself with lye and use much soap, the stain of your guilt is still before me, says the Lord GOD.
23 How can you say, 'I am not defiled, I have not gone after the Baals'? Look at your way in the valley; know what you have done--a restive young camel interlacing her tracks,
24 a wild ass used to the wilderness, in her heat sniffing the wind! Who can restrain her lust? None who seek her need weary themselves; in her month they will find her.
25 Keep your feet from going unshod and your throat from thirst. But you said, 'It is hopeless, for I have loved strangers, and after them I will go.'
Before I compare and comment on the two "slightly"-different (actually: discrepant against each other, in certain places) selections of Scripture, let me repeat and re-emphasize that such so-called/alleged/purported "slight" differences in wording are "insignificant trival trifles" ONLY to pompously-arrogant "mindless" and impatient demonic/satanic apostate heretics who assuredly are headed for Hell and obviously will get there unless they repent before that.
The MKJV phrase in verse 2 of Isaiah 47 reads: "uncover THE LEG" (impersonal singular) whereas the RSV phrase in verse 2 of Isaiah 47 reads: "uncover YOUR LEGS" (personal plural)....and the MKJV phrase in verse 25 of Jeremiah 2 reads: "Withhold YOUR FOOT from being bare" (personal singular, but which entire phrase is somewhat strange because humans are always and automatically born with their feet bare) whereas the RSV phrase in verse 25 of Jeremiah 2 reads: "Keep YOUR FEET (personal plural) from being unshod."
Both are better than certain modern pseudo-translations which state: "Don't run until your shoes wear out" (which absurd extraneous goofy-worded running and shoe-quality euphemism completely misses the Spirit-intended sexual-erotica-potential point).
Admittedly, both the MKJV and RSV essentially convey a SIMILAR concept of exposing either one OR two bare-naked legs (probably relating to needless and senseless visually-sexual abuse of female humans against males who they currently are not married to nor in private with -- particularly faulty NON-TODDLER tween, teen, and older-women...NOT ladies..."ignorantly" or deliberately and rebelliously exposing their bare-naked legs with shortened skirts or shorts or swimwear within BOTH-gender general public view ... and I know that all you sharia-islamic-law muslims will appreciate this condemnation against aforementioned hedonistically-misattired decadent american females)...AND the SIMILAR misbehavior of exposing parts OR all of either ONE or TWO bare-naked feet in sockless sandals, flip-flops, whatever.
IS the RSV too explicit in citing: "legs" instead of MKJV's: "leg" in Isaiah chapter 47, and too explicit in citing: "feet" instead of: "foot" in Jeremiah chapter 2?
Of course, most american-and-european-and-other female humans have two legs instead of one, and have two feet instead of one foot, but the point is: what EXACTLY is acceptable for Scripture wording itself to not be deemed "pornographically" OVER-suggestive?
What do YOU think about that?
Ask a frank, courageous, and honest rabbi who is impeccably-well-versed in Hebrew-semantic-and-linguistic meanings, and/or consult respected Bible Hebrew-wording concordances and commentaries about all this.
One more thing.
The KJV (not MKJV) uses the word: "thy" instead of: "your" in its reading of Jeremiah 2:25. Why, and why did not the MKJV and RSV retain the Elizabethan/Chaucerian-English-reminiscent word: "thy" but instead stated: "your?"
COULD it be that PURPOSELY-intentioned RESPECT for even-sinful-and-wicked humans was indicated by use of the word: "thy" instead of: "your?" DO sinful and wicked women going barefoot in MIXED-gender public view (or even-"innocently" flaunting PARTS of their bare-naked socksless feet, such as ankles and/or toes, in sandals or flip-flops) in mixed-gender general public view DESERVE respect enough to be called a "thy" instead of a "your?"
I, for one, have never been completely "pro-life" because Biblical history itself is FAR from being completely "pro-life" but instead frequently reveals recorded history which is "pro-execution" (or "pro-death") from the book of Genesis on. Thankfully (if it can be called that) the islamic-cult ISIS (contrasted with "all-life-is-sacred" leniency-immentality catholic types) with their beheadings and burnings and throwing homosexuals off the top of buildings relates more closely to that than criminal ACLU/AUSCS/PFAW/SPLC/HRC/FFRF lawyers in the United States who do their damndest to help perverts "get away with it" and allow female-human exhibitionists to roam around half-naked with non-arrested legal impunity (except in Iran, Saudi Arabia, elsewhere).
