Since it's annoying to use video pages to comment on the meter or variants in the Psalm 90 channel, this topic is reserved for discussing them here. NB: the Youtube version of these videos is less complete, but substantially the same.

I don't know when I'll have time to go back and edit or make more videos.

Now commenting can be in one place, no longer hampered by email or restricted to the video watch pages. If you want, you can also cover the 490/1000-year time grants' God's Orchestration of Time theme of Psalm 90, since that doctrine begins in Genesis. But I'm thinking maybe a whole new forum is needed for it. Let me know if you want me to make one. For all this is original research, so needs vetting (ergo the videos and the Word docs, to display the source text and conclusions from it).

For discussion here, please use Roman letters, not special Greek/Hebrew fonts, so everyone can follow what you're saying. Try to transliterate phonetically, or use the standard seminary transcriptions, again so people can follow what you're writing.

I was reparsing Psalm 15, and trying to compare syllable counts to other Hebrew meters, like Psalm 90. As I started counting syllables in Psalm 90, I realized that I couldn't get the same counts you got, nor could I tell where you elided in some spots. I decided to meter it myself. Rather than the 350 syllables you got, I got 364. As for the datelines, I got 84+7. Personally, I really don't like the idea of having to start from 'square 1' again, so I'm really hoping my parsing is wrong, but these issues do have to be sorted out.

HEB 4:12
The word of God is alive and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit, of the joints and marrow, and is a critic of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
