**Dear Brothers and Sisters in the SACRED HEART!
I’ve been thinking about using the Douay Rheims for meditation. Here’s why:
I love the “archaic” language. I know that the “Thees” and “Thous” to some are puffy and irritating. To me, Scripture becomes more grand with it. I love visualizing the scene and Our LORD pronouncing the Gospel with force and love, the “thees” and “thous” help me to do that all the more, and it sounds more reverent.
I know some wll argue that this is not a good study Bible. However that would make me wonder why. I know almost everyone will claim the archaic language. However, thats a nice bonus, because now in addition to actually studying it, I now have to look up the words and have thus added an extra word to my vocabulary
It sounds more poetic and grand, sorta like answer #1
What does everyone else on this forum think about the venerable DRB? **
