The Horn of the Wild Ox


the horn of the wild ox
Posted by Hello

I was reading Psalm 92 in my malayalam (my mother tongue) BIBLE today and I came across this wonderful verse Psalm 92:10"You have exalted my horn [a] like that of a wild ox;fine oils have been poured upon me."

Look at that animal in the pic thats an Indian wild ox called as gaur...
and look at those horns they really are symbols of strength...here King David talks about how much God blesses the righteous before the evil ones..and thats great encouragement...this man David was truely a man after God's own heart...an enviable certificate indeed!!!

I had a doubt as the KJV showed the animal as "Unicorn"...
but all other version put it as "wild ox" even the malayalam Bible put it as
"kaattu potthu" which means wild ox ..... the malayalam Bible was translated in the early centuries from the original texts.

I always feel sad for the people of our land ....we heard the Word even before Europeans did ....we heard the good news earlier but still millions of our dear brothers havent heard it yet....

I am deviating from wht I wanted to write...so people dont worry when evil people around you prosper....do keep holding to him.....God has a better plan for you ..he will never let you down...and like the strong wild ox u'll be unbeatable..
Amen!!

Read the whole Psalm here Psalm 92

Wow, that's interesting to see the picture to give imagery to the Psalm. A very good psalm indeed!

yea I agree with you eucharisto, seeing an actual picture of a wild ox's horn helps the meaning of the text really come through.

Yes, I can understand what you mean about the KJV is sometimes different. I see that alot when I compare it to the Greek of Hebrew Bible. Nice word, you should go to my moms blog. I bet you would like her teachings. Its Bayol.BlogSpot.Com

Hey Thomas, I just got done reading a book about those who were martyred and/or persecuted for their faith. It made me wonder how it is like for you in India. Do those of other(false) religions persecute you if you are open about your faith? God bless!

I have been praying this psalms on a daily basis, for the past six months, or so.(a spin-off from psalms 91) I really wanted to see the picture of the horns of a wild ox. I imagined it to be a very strong animal. I love your illustration, and above all, your comments on this psalms. It was encouraging and highly inspirational. Needed to hear it.

God bless you richly for your encouragement and confirmation of what the Lord is saying to me in this scripture
