DUBLIN, Ireland (July 25) - Irish archaeologists Tuesday heralded the discovery of an ancient book of psalms by a construction worker who spotted something while driving the shovel of his backhoe into a bog.
The approximately 20-page book has been dated to the years 800-1000. Trinity College manuscripts expert Bernard Meehan said it was the first discovery of an Irish early medieval document in two centuries.
"This is really a miracle find," said Pat Wallace, director of the National Museum of Ireland, which has the book stored in refrigeration and facing years of painstaking analysis before being put on public display.
"There's two sets of odds that make this discovery really way out. First of all, it's unlikely that something this fragile could survive buried in a bog at all, and then for it to be unearthed and spotted before it was destroyed is incalculably more amazing."
He said an engineer was digging up bogland last week to create commercial potting soil somewhere in Ireland's midlands when, "just beyond the bucket of his bulldozer, he spotted something." Wallace would not specify where the book was found because a team of archaeologists is still exploring the site.
"The owner of the bog has had dealings with us in past and is very much in favor of archaeological discovery and reporting it," Wallace said.
Crucially, he said, the bog owner covered up the book with damp soil. Had it been left exposed overnight, he said, "it could have dried out and just vanished, blown away."
The book was found open to a page describing, in Latin script, Psalm 83, in which God hears complaints of other nations' attempts to wipe out the name of Israel.
Wallace said several experts spent Tuesday analyzing only that page -- the number of letters on each line, lines on each page, size of page -- and the book's binding and cover, which he described as "leather velum, very thick wallet in appearance."
It could take months of study, he said, just to identify the safest way to pry open the pages without damaging or destroying them. He ruled out the use of X-rays to investigate without moving the pages.
Ireland already has several other holy books from the early medieval period, including the ornately illustrated Book of Kells, which has been on display at Trinity College in Dublin since the 19th century.

THE WORDS OF THE PSALM WHICH WAS FOUND:
(from the Amplified
Bible ~ highlighted for teaching below it)
1KEEP NOT silence, O God; hold not Your peace or be still, O God.
2For, behold, Your enemies are in tumult, and those who hate You have raised their heads.
3They lay crafty schemes against Your people and consult together against Your hidden and precious ones.
4They have said, Come, and let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be in remembrance no more.
5For they have consulted together with one accord and one heart; against You they make a covenant--
6The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites,
7Gebal and Ammon and Amalek, the Philistines, with the inhabitants of Tyre.
8Assyria also has joined with them; they have helped the children of Lot [the Ammonites and the Moabites] and have been an arm to them. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!
9Do to them as [You did to] the Midianites, as to Sisera and Jabin at the brook of Kishon,(B)
10Who perished at Endor, who became like manure for the earth.
11Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, yes, all their princes as Zebah and Zalmunna,(C)
12Who say, Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of God.
13O my God, make them like whirling dust, like stubble or chaff before the wind!
14As fire consumes the forest, and as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15So pursue and afflict them with Your tempest and terrify them with Your tornado or hurricane.
16Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek, inquire for, and insistently require Your name, O Lord.
17Let them be put to shame and dismayed forever; yes, let them be put to shame and perish,
18That they may know that You, Whose name alone is the Lord, are the Most High over all the earth.
Below is an in-depth teaching which hopefully will give insight regarding the Spiritual mystery behind finding this well preserved artifact at this time in history (**please keep in mind ... .prophetically speaking natural Israel often mirrors Spiritual Israel - The symbolic Body Of Christ and Bride of Christ.)
The text below explains the finding of
the Artifacts/Psalms' significance to our present generations, from a Spiritual
perspective... it touches on Covenants between God and Men and why it may be
from a Biblical point of view, the Holy wars in the Middle East are kept alive
among those who believe their Creator has made a Covenant with us, first through
Eve, then Abraham and his descendants from both a natural and spiritual
perspective; individual Covenant Promises made throughout Prophetic History,
until our Heavenly Father made His 'New Covenant' with/for each of us through
Jesus Christ ... A Spiritual Covenant ... Good News for those who seek, hear and
choose to embrace it.
FOR THOSE UNAWARE It may be of
interest/help for you to know who is who genealogy/covenant wise (If the
understanding I have been given is correct), the Ishmaelites (Hagrites are
Ishmaels descendants) are the descendents of Abram of Mesopotamia, (before
he was called Abraham through a covenant God initiated with him and Sarah his
wife in Genesis 17), through the Egyptian Hagar's son Ishmael... (Genesis
15-25:17, Chapter 16 contains a prophecy regarding Ishmael before his birth.)
Isaac was born of Abraham and Sarah after a looooooong awaited prophecy was
finally fulfilled... through impatience, Sarai and Abram tried to make it happen
in their effort to help God according to their own understanding and thus
Ishmael was conceived through the actions of their limited perspective ...
Chapter 17 contains a prophecy regarding Isaac, the promised son... through whom
Jesus descended.... through the lineage of King David. The coming of Jesus as
the Messiah King is initially spoken of ... foreshadowed in Genesis 3:15 to
Eve.... promising redemption from the deceptions of evil for humanity. Genesis
22:18 prophecies ... speaks of the blessings for all nations which will later
come through Jesus as the promised Messiah in the fullness of time) The
Ishmaelites are today's Arabs ... some are of the Muslim faith.
Edom and Amalek refers to those of the descendants of Jacob's twin brother Esau (Genesis 36). Jacob, the second born son of Isaac and Rebecca a Syrian became Israel, (Genesis 32:28) through a covenant God initiated with Jacob as a descendant of Father Abraham ... and eventually Jesus. The offering of the life of Isaac was a foreshadow of the life of Jesus being offered for humanity in the fullness of time. The Israelites are today's Jews who are still waiting for their Messiah. (Genesis 25:19) Their eyes were blinded to Jesus as their Messiah and the new covenant for a season, for the sake of the Gentiles ... those outside of the covenant of God (Romans 11). Esau Jacobs twin married into the Ishmaelite clan (Genesis 28:9). Esau sold his spiritual birthright as the firstborn for food... to Jacob (Immediate relief seemed to be more important than his spiritual inheritance). This was a part of the fulfillment of a prophecy given to Rebecca their mother (Genesis 25:20-34), when they were struggling with one another within their mother's womb.
Moab and Ammon are sons of Lot... Abram's nephew, who received his chosen portion of land, after Abram asked him to separate himself from his tribe due to strife among the herdsman. Lot left Canaan and took his family to outskirts of Sodom and Gomorrah on the plain of Jordan. (Genesis 12-19 ). After this (Genesis 13) God initiated another covenant with Abram promising him great land. Abram moved to the land of Hebron... which is why the Jews are also called Hebrews. http://www.palestinehistory.com/hebron.htm
God began to call Abram, Abraham in Genesis 17, assuring him he has become the father of many nations. It seems to be the Jews... Muslims, and Christians each see themselves as a part of the Covenant of Abraham. Each sees Palestine as a Holy Land and part of their inheritance as children of God. Many Christians have been given the understanding they are a part of a New Covenant God initiated with all of humanity which is a spiritual covenant... making all who accept this covenant to be a spiritual descendant of Abraham ... Father God, through the life/death/resurrection of Jesus Christ... the promised Savior. They are awaiting the fulfillment of the promise the Hebrew people's eyes will be opened to Jesus, Yesuah as their Messiah. (Romans 11:25-)
For those who as yet have not looked up the Scripture which speaks of the prophecy over the life of Ishmael and his kindred here it is for your consideration: Genesis 16:9-12 "... and the Angel of the Lord said unto her, (Hagar) "Return to your mistress (Sari) and submit yourself to her hands. I will multiply your seed exceedingly that it shall not be numbered for multitude... behold you are with child and shall bear a son and shall call his name Ishmael; because the Lord has heard your affliction. He will be a wild man; his hand will be against every man, and every man's hand against him and he shall dwell in the presence of all his kindred." Remember... the descendants of Ishmael are the Arabs... some of whom are today's Muslims. (A Evangelist sister in the family of God in Israel has assured us that there are many Muslims and Jews being converted to Christianity daily... she knows this through first hand experience. She says the war in the Middle East is a catalyst in bringing this about.)
**natural Israel often mirrors Spiritual Israel ... it is like all of the world is a stage and as a whole we are acting out spiritual truths as we are matured as a Species... as we come to recognize we are of both a Spiritual and of a Bodily form. We have a Soul influenced by both, who is daily being given choices. We come into wholeness as we walk with the Holy Spirit reigning over the body and soul, bringing about healing and inner transformations, it seems to be.
Spiritual Israel are those who are of the New Covenant of Christ. They are often referred to as Believers born of Gods' Holy Spirit or symbolically The Body and Bride Of Christ ... The Bride who prepares herself for her Bridegroom. Those created to be spiritually maturing representatives of the resurrected Spirit of Christ according to Father's preordained Prophetic Plan established at the Foundations of the world, which unfolds in God's timing and according to His purposes; enabling us to come into the Knowledge of God and His Kingdom Truths experientially. Such ones are Light Bearers... Jesus asks such a one to let His light shine through them... each is given a different measure/faction of this light, depending upon Father's purpose, it grows as we spend more time in HIS light through a living relationship the Spirit of the Lord. Bless You Father for Your Promise Your light is renewed every morning and shines brighter as each new day dawns. Bless You we have nothing to fear and much to gain...Thank You for bringing us into Your fullness are we are conformed into the Image and Likeness of Your Son.
