Yes, here I will itemize some examples from the Psalter in which The Message moves over somewhat to the left of the ledger ( in this sense the word "left" means more formally-equivalent ).Now don't get the impression that the following will match-up with the NASBU ! However these examples do match-up with the NLTse. 12:6 : God's words are pure words, Pure silver words refined seven times In the fires of his word-kiln 16:1 : Keep me safe, O God, I've run for dear life to you. 17:12 : Lions ready to rip me apart, young lions poised to pounce. 22:10 : When I left the womb you cradled me; since the moment of birth you've been my God. 22:14b : My heart is a blob of melted wax in my gut. 23:2a : You have bedded me down in lush meadows 32:9 : Don't be onery like a horse or mule that needs bit and bridle to stay on track. 34:4b : he freed me from all my anxious fears. 35:25a : Don't let them say to themselves, "Ha-ha,we've got what we wanted." 36:4a : Every time he goes to bed , he fathers another evil plot. 44:11a : You delivered us as sheep to the butcher 44:12 : You sold your people at a discount -- you made nothing on the sale.
