Concerning Psalm 110


Psalm 110 appears every Sunday Evening in the Divine Office. But only today did I notice that it includes verses 1-5, and 7. Why not verse 6?:confused:

So I looked up verse 6β€¦β€œHe will judge the nations, heaping up corpses, smashing heads on the wide plain.” :mad:

Hmmm, a long way from being conciliatory? Just a shade too violent? :rolleyes:

O well, this is the Divine Office, after all, and I will omit verse 6 like all good Dodos. :smiley:
