Thomas Colbert's comment on 2012-09-10 14:52:27:

the hebrew bible reads;Do homage in purity,lest he
(God) be angry.It says nothing about kissing a
Son.This is the ot these are jews.they would have
been confused as to what this psalm would be
saying.the church father jerome was aware of the
original readings and did explain why he had
translated the line differently.Once you put the
word son (in Capital letters) you have a whole
different theology.same goes when the words
Christ or Messiah is used in place of the word
annointed.When people read either of these
capitalized words right away they think Jesus
but this is not what this jewish writer meant
