I will list some not so functionally-equivalent renderings . I'll just give the chapter from which the wordings are found . I will only be giving phrases ,( most of the time ) not entire verses .This can be like a game to determine what verse it can in a most tortuous fashion be found . Chapter 6 : Treat me nice for a change ; I'm so starved for affection . Chapter 8 : I look up at your macro-skies , dark and enormous , your handmade sky-jewelry , Moon and stars mounted in their settings . Then I look at my micro-self and woder , Why do you bother with us ? Why take a second look our way ? Chapter 10 : Time to get up Yahweh -- get moving . Chapter 11 : Once we're standing tall , we can look him straight in the eye . Chap. 17 : My words don't run loose . Chap. 18 : When I got my act together . Chap. 19 : The decisions of Yahweh are accurate down to the nth degree . 21 : You purge the earth of their progeny 22: punctuate it with Hallelujahs Various renderings from Chapter 25 You won't embarrass me , will you ? Don't embarrass any of us Who went out on a limb for you Mark the milestones of your mercy and love , Yahweh Forget that I sowed wild oats Yaheh , give your people a break From this run of bad luck . Selections from Chapter 29 Bravo , Yahweh , Bravo ! Gods and all angels shout , "Encore !" Yahweh's thunder tympanic, Yahweh's thunder symphonic .
