The wicked have waited for me to destroy me,... (Revised again!)

...but I will consider thy testimonies.

1z dtg

(Pull thumb in)

Sunday, August 30, 2015

I am thine, save me...

...for I have sought thy precepts.

2y dtg

Left hand: two fingers up

Right hand: Almost a fist! All fingers in, but the thumb out.

Decimal: 64+30=94 ("ninety four")

I will never forget thy precepts...

...for with them, thou hast quickened me.

2x dtg

Unless thy law had been my delights,... - REVISED!

I should then have perished in mine affliction.

2w dtg


P.S. Sorry! I was just proofreading - and am I ever glad I was!

2w dtg = (64 + 28) decimal = 92 decimal

Now we REALLY need to pull that middle finger down!...

...Because in goes the thumb for twentuh-vih:

"They continue according to thine ordinances, for all are thy servants." 2v dtg

Same as 2t dtg - just pull in your right thumb.

2t dtg was decimal ninety (90 dec), so guess what twentuh-vih is!...

Thy faithfulness is unto all generations... - revised

...thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.

Decimal: ninety

Duotrigesimal: twentuh-tih

Once again, we have to adapt in order to avoid giving any inappropriate gestures.

Left hand: two fingers up

Right hand: Little, ring, and index fingers down.

This leaves the thumb and middle finger. The thumb being up is not a problem, but the middle finger being up has come to mean something very inappropriate. Therefore, whereas the little, ring, and index fingers are "curled up" against the palm of my hand, the middle finger is brought DOWN to REST OVERTOP of my thumb muscle. That way, it is neither curled in with my other three fingers, nor sticking up, and giving an inappropriate gesture.

The math? Decimal: 64(left hand with two fingers up, worth 32 each)+16(little finger in)+8(ring finger)+2(index finger)=80+10=90= 2t dtg.

LAMED... be continued...

For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.

(As I have said before, "LORD" means "Jehovah").

Verse decimal eighty nine, or "89".

Two fingers up on my left hand (I like the index and middle); and the little and ring fingers and thumb down on my right hand (in fact, I USE my right thumb to help HOLD DOWN my ring finger.

Base thirty two, or duotrigesimal: 2s dtg "twentuh-us".

Quicken me after thy lovingkindness... - Revised shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.

2r dtg "twentuh-rah".

64+24=88 decimal ("eighty-eight")

Left hand: two fingers up (any two would do, but I like my index and middle). They give me two times thirty-two - hence the decimal sixty four above.

Right hand: two fingers down - but any two would NOT do. Little and ring fingers give me decimal sixteen and eight, respectively. Hence the decimal twenty four above.



P.S. Another "sorry". :)

They had almost consumed me upon earth... - revised

...but I forsook not thy precepts.

Verse "twentuh-quah" 2q dtg

64+23=87 decimal ("eighty-seven")

Same as "twentuh-pih" - just pull your right thumb in (or left, if you're left handed).

(Pssst... I love you!)


P.S. Yet again: I apologize! :)

Left hand: two fingers up
