Chapter One

Psalms

1

How well God must like you- you don't hang out at Sin Saloon, you don't slink along Dead-End Road, you don't go to Smart-Mouth College.

Instead you thrill to God's Word, you chew on Scripture day and night. You're a tree replanted in Eden, bearing fresh fruit every month, Never dropping a leaf, always in blossom.

You're not at all like the wicked, who are mere windblown dust- Without defense in court, unfit company for innocent people.

God charts the road you take. The road they take is Skid Row.

2

Why the big noise, nations? Why the mean plots, peoples? Earth-leaders push for position, Demagogues and delegates meet for summit talks, The God-deniers, the Messiah-defiers: "Let's get free of God!

Cast loose from Messiah!" Heaven-throned God breaks out laughing. At first he's amused at their presumption; Then he gets good and angry. Furiously, he shuts them up: "Don't you know there's a King in Zion? A coronation banquet Is spread for him on the holy summit."

Let me tell you what God said next. He said, "You're my son, And today is your birthday. What do you want? Name it: Nations as a present? continents as a prize? You can command them all to dance for you, Or throw them out with tomorrow'strash."

So, rebel-kings, use your heads; Upstart-judges, learn your lesson: Worship God in adoring embrace, Celebrate in trembling awe. Kiss Messiah! Your very lives are in danger, you know; His anger is about to explode, But if you make a run for God-you won't regret it!

3

A David psalm, when he escaped for his life from Absalom, his son.

God! Look! Enemies past counting! Enemies sprouting like mushrooms, Mobs of them all around me, roaring their mockery: "Hah! No help for him from God!"

But you, God, shield me on all sides; You ground my feet, you lift my head high; With all my might I shout up to God, His answers thunder from the holy mountain.

I stretch myself out. I sleep. Then I'm up again-rested, tall and steady, Fearless before the enemy mobs Coming at me from all sides.

Up, God! My God, help me! Slap their faces, First this cheek, then the other, Your fist hard in their teeth!

Real help comes from God. Your blessing clothes your people!

4

A David psalm

When I call, give me answers. God, take my side! Once, in a tight place, you gave me room; Now I'm in trouble again: grace me! hear me!

You rabble-how long do I put up with your scorn? How long will you lust after lies? How long will you live crazed by illusion?

Look at this: look Who got picked by God! He listens the split second I call to him.

Complain if you must, but don't lash out. Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking. Build your case before God and wait for his verdict.

Why is everyone hungry for more? "More, more," they say. "More, more." I have God's more-than-enough, More joy in one ordinary day

Than they get in all their shopping sprees. At day's end I'm ready for sound sleep, For you, God, have put my life back together.

5

A David psalm

Listen, God! Please, pay attention! Can you make sense of these ramblings, my groans and cries? King-God, I need your help. Every morning you'll hear me at it again. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on your altar and watch for fire to descend.

You don't socialize with Wicked, or invite Evil over as your houseguest. Hot-Air-Boaster collapses in front of you; you shake your head over Mischief-Maker. God destroys Lie-Speaker; Blood-Thirsty and Truth-Bender disgust you.

And here I am, your invited guest- it's incredible! I enter your house; here I am, prostrate in your inner sanctum, Waiting for directions to get me safely through enemy lines.

Every word they speak is a land mine; their lungs breathe out poison gas. Their throats are gaping graves, their tongues slick as mud slides. Pile on the guilt, God! Let their so-called wisdom wreck them. Kick them out! They've had their chance.

But you'll welcome us with open arms when we run for cover to you. Let the party last all night! Stand guard over our celebration. You are famous, God, for welcoming God-seekers, for decking us out in delight.

    The Message Bible is an excellent resource for this age

    I believe The Message bible is an extrodinary tool for the lifelong convert to the new follower of our Lord Jesus. Our modern American English language contains multiple idioms and terminologies related to our current timeline and culture, as well as euphemisms that would not be understood if translated word for word, phrase for phrase to another time period and culture. There would need to be an equivelent phrase for that culture. The same is true for the first century. The first century language used in the New Testament, as well as the Old Testament Hebrew enact the use of idioms which are rich, with exponentional added meaning behind each word in comparison to our modern language English. The language barrier coupled with idioms and cultural understanding can make the Word have less than intended meaning for the reader. The Message, I have found is an excellent translation, capturing the deep meaning behind the rich literature of the bible. I use NKJV/KVJ most of the time, but I find that when I read The Message, I read it as if it were a novel, flowing and comprehensive. A gripping read, that is more fluent in understanding than of other iterations. I recommend this translation, but with strong caution to have NIV/NKJV/KJV handy for clarification.

    Oh ye of little faith....

    I'm not an expert, just a Mom whose been saved for 8+ years and would have no problem with my young children reading this translation. That's just the point here...this is a translation just like all the rest that we're going to find today. We also have to remember that the original Bible was highly edited, there are Gospels (of Peter and Thomas firmly rejected) letters (of Barnabas) and Acts (of Andrew and John also firmly rejected) for example that have not been accepted. The earlier translations we have do an ok job, but really don't explain what verses mean and leave a lot up to each individual's interpretation and if you don't have someone who has been highly educated that you trust to take you through the Bible, that can be pretty intimidating and a bit scary. Many Pastors today (from what I've been told) have stopped indepth teaching of the Bible, I'm not certain if they offer Bible studies or not, but those who used to learn what the Bible means in Church services are no longer receicving that education on Sunday. Also, don't forget about the young believers, and I'm not just talking about age although that is a huge point as well. Many new believers in Christ will get bogged down in language and it doesn't have to be that hard, The Message Bible is a wonderful learning tool for new believers and young readers. I would rather my children read The Message than watch T.V.. Rick Warren (and my Pastor as well) use this translation as well as several others simply because certain translations say it better than another. It's Ok for you to have a favorite translation of the Bible, that doesn't mean it will be everyone else's. Also, if someone were truly worried about reading The Message without having an older translation, they have this revolutionary thing called a Paralllel Bible - It has The Message on one side and the NIV translation on the other...problem solved. I would highly recommend having more than one translation to refer to anyway, the differences are often interesting. It's all about the language...if you were one of the people who wrote a condemning review on this Bible or are thinking of doing so, ask yourself this question...would Jesus get that uptight about his message of love and how to live a good life for His glory being translated into words a child could identify with? If you still are considering writing a bad review please read Matthew 18:1-9 in any translation that pleases you :-D And remember what dear old Mom likes to say, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. God Bless, and keep talking to our Lord...He will respond if you only take the time to hear Him!

    Not the Bible, but a good start

    My husband was having a difficult time reading the bible. I recommended 'The Message Bible' to him b/c he can get the idea of what God was saying. This book is NOT intended to replace the Bible, it is a beginning point for those who need it. I'm happy to say my husband loves this easy to understand translation and I do not anticipate problems with him moving to the real Bible later. This is an excellent starter bible. Some people need milk before meat, why is that so hard for people to understand. God Bless all who are reading anything about the love, life, and words of Jesus Christ are Savior.

    It's all about Jesus!

    If this bible leads any person to a personal relationship with Jesus.....then I don't understand why people who call themselves Christians can insist that it is a misleading translation. There is not a single translation into the English language that is going to be 100% perfect....the only perfection you can find is by learning the language and reading it in the original text (to the reviewer who is using quotes from revelation to back up the claims I hope you realize that you would have to use the same claim for every english translation because none of them are perfect.....also re-wording for comprehension is not adding or taking away). This translation is a great starting point for anyone who is searching or wants to strengthen their relationship with Jesus. God created us to worship every minute of every day, and every day we divide ourselves over things like a translation that could lead one of us to a new life in Christ. How sorry I feel for those of us who choose to divide the Church of Christ rather then to unite and stand firm in the absolute truth. If you are searching.....then I hope with all my heart that which ever translation you choose, you find God....because he's waiting for you. God Bless You!

    This shouldn't be called a bible

    This bible is a mistranslation luring christians into new age thinking and preparing them for a world religion. It mistranslates the lords prayer. It even uses new age terminology. Don't read this bible, if you own it throw it out. I urge you to please take me seriously. I'm only 15 and realize the deception in this book. If you compare the verses in this bible to other translations you will see it too. The only message this bible is teaching is the new age message.

    Dangerous to Christianity

    Just when you thought the Bible couldn't get dumbed down any further from the NIV along comes The Message. I am deeply troubled by the use of the Message in the church and even in the home. The language is deceptive and stears far clear of the true meanings of the Bible and when people exclusively use this translation there is a vast disconnect between them and other Christians. In order to be united as Christians it is essential that we stay close to what God intended for us to read and not keep coming up with poorer translations to justify our laziness. In fact I think the message is the first book that comes right out and says, 'If you're too stupid to understand the simple NIV check out the Message the first translation able to be read with your eyes closed.' My point is that God intends us as Christians to be intellectuals and dumbing down the Bible more and more only simplifies the concepts and makes lazy Christians more justified in remaining as infants in Christ.

    Not a Bible. A deceptive paraphrase.

    This translation uses a phrase in the Lords prayer 'as above so below.' This is a new age power word. Do a Google search on the phrase and see the 1000's of new age web sites that have this phrase as a motto. When Rick Warren and other pastors use this translation they mislead many new Christians. Thus over 90% of the new Christians are falling away only a year latter. If you need more evidence read MATTHEW 5:1-8-- AKJV then read MATTHEW 5:1-8--TM. It is shocking how much is added and taken away. Keep in mind what is said in the last few chapters of the Bible: Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and [from] the things which are written in this book.

    Excellent readability, good enough translation

    This translation of the Bible is eminently readable. I am surprised by a couple of comments here. First, one of the great treasures of the translation is how nice the cadence is for much of the wisdom literature. It comes closer to capturing the poetic rhythm of many of those books than any other translation that I can think of. The Psalms just pour over you as you read them. Second, this translation has been worked over with Peterson by some top-notch scholars. While I'm sure that there are places where the translation could better capture nuance and detail, there are NO egregious errors in the translation, i.e., where the text has just plain been mistranslated. (Caveat: there are passages in the Bible about which there is general controversy on how to translate them. But such a worry would apply to *all* translations, not just The Message.) It is truly disappointing when so-called experts claim that they have found errors, but never provide any citations or examples, or provide their credentials to suggest why we should believe them over, e.g. Tremper Longman, John Walton, Darrell Bock, Donald Hagner, Moises Silva, and the many other first-rate Bible scholars who served as consultants.

    This bible is a MUST have!!

    I have quite a few bibles in my house, but, this is brilliant. It breaks downs the thus, thee and thou's into 2003 language. Its a must for anyone wanting to study the word of God, but got lost in the many other versions. Be blessed!

    WOW!

    I was at Barnes & Noble a few days ago and spotted this Bible. Although I did not buy it at the time, I glanced through it and liked what I saw. I flipped over to a passage that was hard for me to comprehend, and after reading the passage in 'The Message Bible', I understand the selection clearly! I am planning to buy this product as soon as I possibly can!

    Clarity for Today's Mind

    Having just recently come back to Christianity, I tried reading an OLD family Bible that my Mother sent me. It just didn't help me. So, off to Barnes and Noble and a search in the Bible section, which brought me to The Message Bible. After buying it, I went to have my car fixed, and brought the book with me to the waiting room. While sitting in a GARAGE waiting room, I became enlightened!!! I started taking notes. Starting in the New Testament, with Matthew, I began reading, learning and, most importantly, understanding God's word! I recommend this Bible to any person who wants to perceive God's word as if it were written today. Beautiful, calming and enlightening.

    OUTSTANDING MESSAGE

    Today was the first time I had ever heard anyone read from this Message Bible. When the man of God read from the Message Bible it made the meaning so much clearer to understand in today's language. Now I cannot wait to buy the Message Bible to help me understand God's word so I can live more closely to Him. I plan to go to the Barnes & Noble Book Store in the morning to purchase one. What a masterpiece of divine inspiration!

    A BLESSING TO SHARE

    MY "MESSAGE' is simple. What a joy to use this sweet bible along with my New American Standard. I have always used every translation I can and now this one. Today I found James1:21b and just wept with the picture it painted. I believe Pastor Peterson is an artist with words. If there was a version to paint word pictures, this is it. GOD bless Pastor Peterson.

    Quite a Find!!

    I must say that I am thrilled Eugene Peterson finally finished this complete edition. I had, for years, read his The Message - The New Testament Edition. I couldn't wait for this complete edition to be published. And...now that I have it, I'm so pleased. When doing my Bible studies, besides my NRSV, I refer to this and often share it with the other members. I love the poetic sound, and the warmth & friendliness of the read. There's a smoothness that flows with each word and a comfort that's felt with each phrase. Although it should not be a substitute for a "genuine translation", it makes a GREAT additional work that all Christians should own....or at the least, find the opportunity to read it. And for those people who "just can't make themselves sit down and read The Bible", this is a great start for them. The creative writing of Peterson flows from phrase to phrase and account to account in such a free manner, that one almost feels like they are reading a "best seller". Gee, what am I saying?....The Bible...in any form is a best seller....but THIS "The Message" is Quite a Find!! I highly recommend it!!

    Enjoyable, fresh, ah-ha!

    I have just begun reading The Message and I find myself enjoying it immensely. Unlike most translations, it does not have chapter or verse address notation and reads very much like stories and letters, as in the original Biblical texts. The wording is fresh and I have frequently found my self saying "ah ha, that particular statement makes things a little clearer than what I've been reading all these years." I don't believe the author's intent was or reader's expectation of The Message should be to replace a reputable translation. However, used alongside a reputable translation, The Message can shed new light on what we've had access to in the past.

    Read the Message bible very carefully

    I have been enjoying reading the Message Bible, but agree that you MUST read it along with the KJV to compare. I was reading it by itself for awhile, but found an error in the book of Exodus. <p>I noticed it when I later read Deuteronomy 10 where it says: '1. GOD responded. He said, 'Shape two slabs of stone similar to the first ones. Climb the mountain and meet me. Also make yourself a wooden chest. 2. I WILL ENGRAVE the stone slabs with the words that were on the first ones, the ones you smashed. Then you will put them in the Chest.''<p> But earlier when I was reading in Exodus 34 it seems like the writer is saying that God had MOSES write the words on the stone this time when they were really written by the finger of God both times. <p>''Exodus 34 1. GOD spoke to Moses: 'Cut out two tablets of stone just like the originals and engrave on them the words that were on the original tablets you smashed.'<p> It seems to imply that God told Moses that Moses was to engrave the words onto the tablets instead of God. I compared it with KJV, NIV and New Century bibles and they all said that God said 'I will write' the words on again, not for Moses to write them. <p>This is the KJV: 'Genesis 34: 1. And the LORD said unto Moses, Hew thee two tables of stone like unto the first: and I will write upon these tables the words that were in the first tables, which thou brakest.'<p> Before I found this error (or ommission?) I had told some children at church that Moses had to write the words God wanted him to on the second tables, so now I will have to tell them I was wrong. This scared me, because I don`t want to mislead anyone about anything in God`s Word! <p>I will still read the Message, but I will be closely comparing as I go through the whole book this year. And when I finish I will go back to the beginning and compare Genesis etc with KJV, too. <p>I have seen many passages that are very different in the Message Bible compared to other bibles. For example: 'Deuteronomy 16 : 21. 'Don't plant fertility Asherah trees alongside the Altar of GOD, your God, that you build. 22. Don't set up phallic sex pillars--GOD, your God, hates them.' <p>KJV says: don`t plant ANY trees there and only says 'any image which the LORD thy God hateth'<p> SO READ THIS PARAPHRASE CAREFULLY. <p>I don`t know much about new age word usage, but be very careful. Never trust a paraphrase completely as you would the KJV, even a good preacher or bible teacher will warn you to even check out what they tell you with the Bible.<p> God bless you and pray for the Peace of Jerusalem! <p>If you haven`t asked Jesus Christ into your life and heart, do it today : ) <p> Isaiah 55:6 'Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near'

    Teen and Enjoying this Bible

    This is a good translation of the Bible. It puts things in todays terms. This Bible SHOULD NOT be used as your only Bible. It should be read along with an NIV or KJV version. This is more for comprehension than anything. Understandability. So do not throw out your NIV or KJV version of the Bible, use them together.

    Good...no...very good bible

    This is a very good piece of work. I recommend this bible for everyone, even those that read other versions and are happy using them. My only critisism is that the poetic parts of the bible don't really work in this version, in my humble opinion. otherwise, you can't go wrong.
