by | Oct 29, 2021

Adapted from A Mizmor of David (Psalm 8)


To the Preeminent Musician

To be performed on the Gittiyth (a harp of Gath)

For Sukkot


YAHUAH Adoneynu


O, YAHUAH, Adoneynu,

How excellent Your name in all the earth!

Who has set Your Splendor

Above the heavens,

Above the visible arch of sky

Where the celestial bodies revolve,

With waters beneath and above

The space cleared by Ruah!



From the mouth of infants

And nursing mothers,

You have brought forth

Your praise.

You have laid the foundation

Of strength

And of boldness,

For the purpose of

Those who travail,

Because of the adversary,

The foe who causes





That You might rest

From Your labors—


That You might bring to an end

Your haters

And be avenged upon the vengeful.


I look intently

Upon the face

Of the lofty sky.

I observe

Your achievement,

Those things You have made,

Your labors,

The place

Where You dipped

The fingers of your feet.

I see the moon,

And the blazing star,

Your progeny,

Which You established

And arranged to be steadfast.

What is mankind—

Mortal, weak and frail—

That You remember him,

The sons of A’dam

That You watch over them?


You have caused him

To lack,

To be in need,

To decrease

And be smaller,



Than the mighty rulers,

The divine judges,

And the mighty ones,

Yet with abundance,



You encircled him.


You have given him

Dominion over Your achievement,

He reigns over the labors

Of Your hands.

You appointed him for this,

You lay these at his feet,

Like the sweetness

Of a woman in subjection

Beneath him.

You give increase

Of family,



All these and more,

The wild beast—


And the fields,

The sparrow

Of the arched sky,

The fish,

That great traveler,

Across the westward sea.



How excellent is Your name

In all the earth!

The Psalm Project represents my desire for a deeper understanding of the Word of YAHUAH. It is not a mechanical translation, a one-word-for-word exchange from Hebrew to English. We have those. This is is a lyrical adaptation of the many possibilities hidden in the Hebrew, arranged with consideration for the poetic and musical intent of the original writer. I pray you are as enriched in the reading as I was in the transcribing.

Miss Rivqah is born!

AND no, she wasn’t born standing up. That would be totally amazing if true. Rivqah is nearly 4 months old now, her birthdate being on July 7, and as you can see, she loves standing with assistance. Sarah and I are in our 40’s, have been married for over 20 years, and never thought we could have any more children. Rivqah decided to surprise us when we least expected it, and here she is, tada! all smiles. Yahuah is truly amazing. Expect plenty more of her in upcoming announcements. I may throw her in when you least suspect it. You can read her birth story here.

Miss Rivqah.

Rebecca L. Gould: A growing family at TUC!

IN my last newsletter I made mention of Rebecca L. Gould without ever giving a photo reveal. Well, here she is. The lovely Rebecca. Rebecca came to TUC during the summer of 2021 after following the breadcrumb trail from Rob Skiba and Nephelim research and soon thereafter began following the Torah. She has been an enormous help to the TUC ministry ever since that time, editing books for publication as well as running the podcast and administrating the TUC community, among other  tasks. ‘The Earth Not a Globe Review: Volume I’ and ‘The Legends of the Jews: Volumes I-IV’ would not have happened without her. 

New Article Archives

A GREAT deal many of my readers have been asking for a single page where my articles can be accessed and I don’t blame them. The sheer volume has become dizzying. Just know that the list provided here is far from complete, though I do say it’s a good start. It’s not that I’m holding anything back. I have been attempting to convert my catalogue of work into pdf files over the last so many months and that is no small easy task. The greater bulk is published all throughout my website. You’ll have to fish for them until I get around to it.
