Tanakhmancy

tanakh.jpgIs it a bit of a prophecy? The cryptic answer to a question from an oracle? Or something else? Is it received in a fantasy land or a future setting? You decide and use it as a 10-15 minute writing prompt.

These excerpts represent the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and are drawn from The Tanach:
  • Psalms 9: 13 (9:14) Be gracious unto me, O LORD, behold mine affliction at the hands of them that hate me; Thou that liftest me up from the gates of death;
  • Psalms 9: 14 (9:15) That I may tell of all Thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion, that I may rejoice in Thy salvation.
  • Psalms 9: 15 (9:16) The nations are sunk down in the pit that they made; in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.
  • Psalms 9: 16 (9:17) The LORD hath made Himself known, He hath executed judgment, the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah
  • Psalms 9: 17 (9:18) The wicked shall return to the nether-world, even all the nations that forget God.
These are from Facade where you can randomly draw passages from the Bible, the Koran (Islam), the Rig Veda (Hinduism) and the Tanakh (Judaism).
