“The Lord is my Strength & my Shield My heart trusts in him” ~ Psalm 28:7 from the powder horns above.

“The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoyceth, and with my song will I praise him.” Psalm 28:7 You can find this 1715 Psalm toward the back of our full size 1733 New Testament. www.18thcenturybibles.org/1733-new-testament

“He is my shield and fortitude, my buckler in distress. My heart rejoyceth greatly, and my song shall him confess”. You can find this 1720 Psalm toward the back of our pocket size 1733 New Testament. www.18thcenturybibles.org/1733-new-testament

The 1715 Psalms reads: “The Lord is my strength and my shield, my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoyceth, and with my song will I praise him.” You can find this Psalm in our 1715 Old Testament. www.18thcenturybibles.org/1733-bible

In our 1734 Book of Common Prayer, Psalm 28:7 reads entirely differently. “The Lord is my strength, and my shield, my heart hath trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart danceth for joy, and in my song will I praise him.” www.18thcenturybibles.org/book-of-common-prayer

Our original 1734 Book of Common Prayer came with another book of Psalms in the back that we are in the process of scanning and cleaning up. Psalm 28:7 in this original 1735 Sternhold & Hopkins Psalms reads, “He is my shield and fortitude, my buckler in distress: My heart rejoiceth greatly, and my song shall him confess”. www.18thcenturybibles.org/book-of-common-prayer

Our replica of the original 1640 Bay Psalm Book reads: “God is my strength, my shield, in him my heart did trust, & helpt I was: Therefore my heart will gladnes shew, and with my song I’le him confesse.” This is from our replica of the “The Whole Booke of Psalmes…”, aka The Bay Psalm Book. www.18thcenturybibles.org/1640-bay-psalm-book
