Open thou mine eyes...

...that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.


Let go of that right thumb, and pull in the right index finger.



Monday, November 7, 2016


Deal bountifully with thy servant that I may live and keep thy word.

Verse "hih", of "h" dtg. It sounds like the "hi" in "hit" without the "t".

Little finger and thumb in on the right hand. Left hand can do whatever it wants... for now.



Friday, October 21, 2016

I will delight myself in thy statutes...

...I will not forget thy word.

Verse "gi-eeh" (just like the name "Guy" in French).

Right hand: little finger alone pulled in (and use the palm of your hand to hold it down - I certainly need to!)

Guess what! I love you AND miss you, AND pray God will let me find favour with YOU! (I trust "ye" know who "you" are!)


Tuesday, October 18, 2016

I will meditate in thy precepts...

...and have respect unto thy ways.

Verse "eff", or "f" dtg

All digits in on the right hand, with only the "pinky" or "little finger" sticking up.

P.S. I love you!


Friday, October 14, 2016

I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies... much as in all riches.

Verse "e"



Tuesday, October 11, 2016

With my lips...

...have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

Pull in the right thumb over top of the already down right middle finger and ring fingers.

"dee", or "d" in dtg
= "thirteen" or "13" in decimal, or Base Ten



Friday, October 7, 2016

Blessed art thou O LORD, or Jehovah -

...teach me thy statutes.

Keep the right ring finger in, let the right thumb and index fingers go, and pull in the middle finger. That would make verse:

twelve, or "12" in decimal, or

"see". or "c" in duotrigesimal, or Base Thirty Two.

My brother liked to use an expression, which comes to mind right now: "c... 'sen-IOR""! :)



Wednesday, October 5, 2016

Thy word have I hid in mine heart...

...that I might not sin against thee.

Pull in your right thumb on top of your already down index finger to get verse:

"eleven", or "11" in decimal or,

"bee", or "b" in duotrigesimal, or Base Thirty Two


Tuesday, October 4, 2016

With my whole heart have I sought thee...

...O, let me not wander from thy commandments.

Okay: now we let that right thumb go, PULL DOWN THE MIDDLE FINGER OVER TOP OF OUR THUMB MUSCLE SO IT ISN'T STICKING UP, and pull in the index finger so that, along with the ring finger, it is "tucked in" UNDERNEATH the thumb muscle.

Eight plus two equals verse ten.

In decimal, that would be "10", and in duotrigesimal that would be (think visiting the dentist, open your mouth wide, and say...) "ah...", or "a dtg". The dtg stands for duotrigesimal, or Base Thirty Two.

I love you!


Thursday, September 29, 2016

Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way?...

...By taking heed thereto according to thy word.

Keep the right ring finger in, and pull in the right thumb over-top of it. That makes eight plus one, or verse nine.

I love you (plural), OK?


Tuesday, September 27, 2016


It sounds like "bait"...



Monday, September 26, 2016

I will keep thy statutes...

O! Forsake me not utterly!

Let all those currently down digits go, because it is time for a binary "roll over!" Hooray!

See, with verse seven, we had the right thumb, index finger, and middle finger down. That corresponds to binary: "111".

In fact, let us count to seven in binary:


Now, that binary "111" is just like a decimal "999". In fact, the result of adding "one" to both binary "111" and decimal "999" looks the same in each case: "1000" and "1000". What is different is the value. In the former case, this many dots:

.... ....

In the latter case? THIS MANY!

..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... .....
..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... ..... .....

And, by the way, as I have said many a time, I know, "-38,148,008,924,359". (If you are curious about the meaning of this number, feel free to let me know).


Saturday, September 24, 2016

I will praise thee with uprightness of heart...

...when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.

Right thumb, index finger, and middle finger in. Verse 7



Wednesday, September 21, 2016


...shall I not be ashamed when I have respect unto all thy commandments.

Let the right thumb go, keep the right middle finger down, and pull in the right index finger. That is four plus two, which equals six.



Tuesday, September 6, 2016


...that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!

Pull the right thumb in, and over the still down right middle finger, and we have four plus one, which equals five.



Monday, August 29, 2016

Thou hast commanded us... keep thy precepts diligently.

Let that right thumb and index finger go, and pull in your right middle finger (and use the palm of your hand to help hold it down, if you would like).

Verse four!



Saturday, August 27, 2016

They also do no iniquity...

...they walk in his ways.

Pull in that right thumb. Verse 3.

And do ye know what? That's right! "I love you!"


Friday, August 26, 2016


...are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.

Let that right thumb go, and pull in that right index finger.

Verse 2, or "two".


Thursday, August 25, 2016


Alright! Back to the beginning! Do what you want with your left hand (unless you are left handed), and let us focus on the right hand. First, all digits (finger and thumb)... OUT! That's "zero". Thumb in. That's "one".

"Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the LORD, or Jehovah."

By the way, for the word, "Undefiled", it could also be translated "perfect" or "sincere" - so let us stop saying nobody if perfect and BE perfect (especially us men). And, women? Virtuous! That is my two cents, anyway. And, of course, "I love you!"


P.S. One last thing...

Thursday, August 18, 2016

I have gone astray like a lost sheep... thy servant, for I do not forget thy commandments.

Verse Fiftuh Gee (and remember that that is snobbish French guy "Guy")

All digits up on my left hand, and only my little finger in on my right hand (and I use the palm of my hand to help hold it down, because I have to!)

In decimal, that would be a hundred and sixty, corresponding to the duotrigesimal (or base Thirty Two) "Fiftuh"; and sixteen, corresponding to the "Gee" on my right hand.

A hundred and sixty plus sixteen is a hundred and seventy six!

I just took a trip down memory lane and realized I had (and, I know, still have, some proofreading to do! ;(.... :).)



Thursday, August 11, 2016

Let my soul... - revised! And it shall praise thee, and let thy judgments help me.

Verse (decimal) one hundred and seventy five, or duotrigesimal fiftuh eff

Same as for fiftuh eeh, but pull in your thumb on the right hand.



Saturday, August 6, 2016

I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD,...

... or Jehovah, and thy law is my delight.

Verse 5e dtg

All digits up on the left hand (for me, seeing I am right handed), and the ring, middle, and index fingers in on my right hand, like this:

So, in decimal, or base ten, that would be five times thirty two = a hundred and sixty on the left hand (each digit up is worth thirty two); plus fourteen on the right hand (eight plus four, plus two, as can be seen from the stroke notation in the drawing), which equals a hundred and seventy four. 174 decimal.



Friday, August 5, 2016

Let thine hand help me,...

for I have chosen thy precepts.

Verse fiftuh dee



Wednesday, August 3, 2016

My tongue shall speak of thy word...

...for all thy commandments are righteousness.

Verse 5c dtg



Friday, July 22, 2016

My lips shall utter praise...

When thou hast taught me my statutes.

Verse fiftuh bee

Same as fiftuh ah, but now bring in the thumb (and I recommend keeping that middle finger down, again, OVER TOP on the thumb muscle).

I love you!

Wednesday, July 20, 2016

Let my supplication come before thee... revised!

...Deliver me according to thy word.

Verse fiftuh ah

By the way, "quicken" means "revive", or even "bring me back again from the dead".

All five up on the left hand, and the ring and index finger down on the right. Even here, though, I already employ resting my middle finger OVER TOP of my thumb muscle, while my ring and index fingers are tucked in underneath my thumb muscle. That way, it doesn't look like a certain unfortunate gesture!



P.S. Sorry! :)

Saturday, July 16, 2016


Pronounced "tah...hv"

Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD, or Jehovah; give me understanding according to thy word.

(again, I added the "or Jehovah", because "LORD" means "Jehovah")

Verse fiftuh nine

Left hand, all digits up
Right hand, the ring finger in, and the thumb in, helping hold down the ring finger...

...I love you!...


Wednesday, July 13, 2016

I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies...

...for all my ways are before thee.

Verse fiftuh eight



Wednesday, July 6, 2016

My soul hath kept thy testimonies...

...and I love them exceedingly.

Verse 57 dtg (fiftuh seven) = 167 decimal (a hundred and sixty seven)

Five digits up on the left hand, and the thumb and index and middle fingers down on the right hand.



Tuesday, July 5, 2016

LORD, or Jehovah, I have hoped for thy salvation...

and done thy commandments.

Verse Fiftuh six

(the "or Jehovah") part is not in the actual text of the King James (also known as "Authorized") version, but I just HAD to put it.

Of course, in decimal, that would fiftuh six.

I... love... you...


Saturday, July 2, 2016

Great peace have they which love thy law...

...and nothing shall offend them.

Verse fiftuh five

Five digits up on the left hand, and the middle finger and thumb in on the right hand (and the right thumb is helping hold down the middle finger).

Love you, and even, if God will, see you soon! :)


Wednesday, June 29, 2016

Seven times a day do I praise thee...

...because of thy righteous judgements.

Verse fiftuh four

Left hand: all digits up
Right hand: only the middle finger in



Monday, June 27, 2016

I hate and abhor lying,...

...but thy law do I love.

Verse fiftuh three - of course, that is, in Base Thirty Two. In Decimal, that would be a hundred and sixty three.

All digits up on the left hand, and now I bring in my right thumb and use it to help hold down my already down index finger.

I love you!


Monday, June 20, 2016

I rejoice at thy word... one that findeth great spoil.

Verse fiftuh two

Left hand: all digits up
Right hand: only the index finger in



Wednesday, June 15, 2016


You know - that sensitive area on the front of your lower leg? :)

"Princes have persecuted me without a cause, but my heart standeth in awe of thy word."

Verse fiftuh one

Same as last time, but you (or, at least, I) pull in the thumb on the right hand.

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

Thy word is true from the beginning... - revised

...and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.

All digits out on both hands! On the left hand, that means "fiftuh", or 50dtg; and on the right? Zero!



P.S. And, of course, fiftuh plus zero equals fiftuh.

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Now, right thumb in!... - revised

...Consider how I love thy precepts - quicken me, O LORD, according to thy loving-kindness.

(And, again, "LORD" meaneth "Jehovah")

Verse fourtuh zed

I love yo...u! And I always wil...l!


Tuesday, May 17, 2016

I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved...

...because they kept not thy word.

Right hand: "thumb up!"


Sunday, May 15, 2016

Many are my persecutors and mine enemies...

...yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.

Verse 4x dtg

Left hand: four fingers up

Right hand: it looks like I am pointing with my index finger, because it is the only digit up. All the other digits (thumb and fingers) are in



Friday, May 13, 2016

Great are thy tender mercies,...

...oh LORD, or Jehovah, quicken me according to thy judgements.

4w dtg



Thursday, May 12, 2016

for they seek not thy statutes.

Verse fourtuh "vih"

Same as fourtuh "vih", but with the thumb in.


Tuesday, May 10, 2016

Plead my cause and deliver me...

quicken me according to thy word.

Verse fourtuh "tih"

Again! Love!

Left hand: four fingers up

Right hand: index, ring, and little fingers down,and curled in. Thumb up, and middle finger NOT up (left we be giving phallic gestures), but rather down OVER TOP of the palm muscle (this way, it is still "out" and distinct from the other digits, but, again, also not up).



Friday, May 6, 2016


Consider mine affliction and deliver me, for I do not forget thy law.

Verse fourtuh "us"



Monday, April 25, 2016

Concerning thy testimonies,...

I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever.

Verse 4r dtg "fourtuh rah" = decimal 128+24 = decimal one hundred and fifty two

Four fingers up on left hand, and ring and little finger in on the right hand (and using my right palm to hold down those two fingers).

Love you! :)


Sunday, April 24, 2016

Thou art near, O LORD, or Jehovah,...

...and all thy commandments are truth.

verse fourtuh quah



Friday, April 15, 2016

They draw nigh that follow after...

mischief - they are far from thy law.

Verse 4p dtg

I love you...


Friday, April 8, 2016

Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: - revised

O LORD, or Jehovah, quicken me according to thy judgement.

Psalm CXIX.4n dtg = 128+21decimal =149 decimal

Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Mine eyes prevent the night watches...

...that I might meditate in thy word.

Verse fourtuh em


Wednesday, March 23, 2016

I prevented... revised

the dawning of the morning and cried. I hoped in thy word.

Verse fourtuh kih is what I am coming up with.



Thursday, March 17, 2016

I cried unto thee,... REVISED!

...Save me - and I shall keep thy testimonies.

Verse 4j dtg, or "fourtuh jih" = 146 decimal, or "a hundred and fourty six"

With my right thumb back up, I REALLY have to use my right palm to help hold down my little AND index fingers. Still, four fingers up on my left hand.



People! I am so sorry! I just proofread this, and it was so embarrassing! Oh, well! At least I know proofreading is NOT a vain exercise!

Sunday, March 13, 2016

KOPH - revised

I cried with my whole heart: hear me, O LORD - I will keep thy statutes.

Again, "LORD", means "Jehovah"

fourtuh-hih, or 4h dtg = 145 decimal, or "a hundred and fourty five"

Four fingers up on the left hand, and now on the right I can bring in my thumb to help hold down my little finger.

Daniel - or "God is my judge"

Friday, March 4, 2016

The righteousness of thy testimonies... - revised yet again ... AND again!

is everlasting - give me understanding and I shall...

...(both hands - the left one with four fingers up for "fourtuh" (and thumb in so you remember not to confuse it with "fiftuh"); and the right one with only the little finger IN for "giy" (which is a little bit tricky, especially when you are new to binary finger counting. I, however, have gotten into the habit of of using a rolling motion against the palm of my hand, so that the palm is holding down the little finger)... UP!)...


(Verse "a hundred and fourty four" in decimal)

Remember, way back when, when we were at verse (decimal) fourty eight? (Let me share it again:

"My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments which I have loved, and I will meditate in thy statutes")

...and how I said I put my hands up for that verse? In duotrigesimal, or base thirty two, that was "giy-tuhn", or 1g dtg? When ye read that verse, I am sure ye can easily see why I put my hands up for it. In the case of our current verse, however?

Not everyone can take "living" for granted. I sure cannot! Life is a real struggle for me at times. For example: getting married. I have no idea why God seems to have ordained that I would be in my current situation, but I sure am in it; and how I am EVER going to get out of it in one piece? I do know - it is by faith; but, people? IT IS A LIONS' DEN! AND THEN SOME! Of course, regardless of how it seems, it WILL end and I WILL get married! Hallelujah! That is one of the reasons (even main reasons) why, when I get to this verse? I put my hands up and declare, again: "...LIVE!"



Friday, February 26, 2016

Trouble and anguish have taken hold upon me...

...yet thy commandments are my delights.




P.S. Same as the last verse - just pull your left thumb in.

Sunday, February 21, 2016

Thy righteousness is an everlasting righteousness,... (revised)

Thy word is very pure... - revised

...therefore thy servant loveth it.

Verse fourtuh "c", or "see" = a hundred and fourty

Tuesday, February 2, 2016

My zeal hath consumed me...

...because mine enemies have forgotten thy words.

Verse 4b dtg = "fourtuh bee" = 128+11 = 139 decimal = "a hundred and thirty nine"



Monday, February 1, 2016

Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded...

...are righteous, and very faithful.

Verse fourtuh ah = 4a dtg = 128+10 = 138 decimal = "a hundred and thirty eight"



Friday, January 29, 2016

TSADDI - revised again!


Righteous are thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.

(LORD, means "Jehovah")

Verse fourtuh nine, which equals a hundred and thirty seven

I'm sorry people! I really am! I am so mortified! If ye do not know, why? Good! But if ye do, I - again - apologize! I am sure glad I proofread this! :)

Thursday, January 28, 2016

Rivers of waters run down mine eyes...

...because they keep not thy law.

Verse fourtuh eight, which equals one hundred and thirty six.

Four fingers up on the left hand, and only the ring finger in on the right hand. Use your right palm to help hold down your right ring finger.

I love you, OK?


Wednesday, January 27, 2016

Make thy face to shine upon thy servant,...

and teach me thy statutes.

Verse 47 dtg, or "fourtuh seven"= 135 decimal, or "a hundred and thirty five"



Monday, January 25, 2016

Deliver me from the oppression of man... - revised will I keep thy precepts.

Verse fourtuh six, which equals one hundred and thirty four.

Four fingers up on the right hand, and the index and middle fingers in on the left hand.



Friday, January 22, 2016

Order my steps in thy word...

...and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.

Verse fourtuh five.



Thursday, January 21, 2016

Look thou upon me, and be merciful unto me... thou usest to do unto those that love thy name.

44 dtg "fourtuh four" = 128+4 = 132 decimal, or "one hundred and thirty two"

Four fingers up on the left hand, and only the middle finger in on the right hand.



Thursday, January 14, 2016

I opened my mouth...

...and panted - for I longed for thy commandments. ;)

Verse 43 dtg "four-tuh three"= 32*4 + 3 = 128+3 = 131 decimal "one hundred and thirty one"

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

The entrance of thy words giveth light... revised! giveth understanding unto the simple.

verse: fourtuh-two


Tuesday, January 12, 2016


Pronounced: "Peh"

Thy testimonies are wonderful - therefore doth my soul keep them.

41 dtg "fourtuh-one" = 32*4 + 1 = 128 + 1 = 129 "one hundred and twenty nine" decimal

Four fingers up on the left hand, and only the thumb in on the right hand.

I love you, OK? And I always will! :) < 3

Sunday, January 10, 2016

Therefore I esteem all thy precepts concerning all things to be right...

...and I hate every false way.

"Four-tuh" - say it the same way you would say "fourty", except, of course, go "uh" at the end, instead of "ee".

Four fingers up on the left hand, and all digits up on the right.

By the way, by way of review: this is a mix: conventional finger counting on the left hand, and binary finger counting on the right. Originally, I used binary finger counting on both hands - but then I realized that:

a) I did not need to and

b) using conventional finger counting on my left hand minimized finger fatigue

40 dtg (again: "four-tuh") = decimal 128, or "one hundred and twenty eight"
