Psalm 28:7 on Powder Horns

These two powder horns have Psalms 28:7 inscribed on them.

“The Lord is my Strength & my Shield My heart trust in him”

Along with the photo of these two powder horns, I have also posted this same Psalm from several different period sources.

Psalm 28:7 from the original 1720 Psalms reads a little differently:  “He is my shield and fortitude, my buckler in distress”.  You can find this 1720 Psalms toward the back of my pocket size 1733 New Testament.  Check out this New Testament at the following link: Click Here

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 Psalms in my 1715 Old Testament and in the back of our full size 1733 New Testaments.

In my replica of our 1734 Book of Common Prayer Psalm 28:7 reads something entirely different, so we can ignore that.  However, Psalm 28:8 reads:  “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.”  Maybe my eyes are crooked.  Check out my replica of our Book of Common Prayer at the following link:  Click Here

My replica of the 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.”  The title page of this book is “The Whole Booke of Psalmes…”, but it is now know as the Bay Psalm Book.  Check out my replica of this Psalm book at the following link:  Click Here

My replica of our John Playford’s 1697 Psalms reads:    “He is my shield and fortitude, my buckler in distress:  My hope, my help, my heart’s relief, my song shall him confess.”  Please take a look at my replica of our original 1697 John Playford Psalms & Hymns book at the following link:  Click Here

I hope that this gives you several more period options to inscribe on your next horn project.  I bet you had no idea that I make replicas of all these Psalm books. ~ James
