    To Patty on unicorns - This was the O.T. dispensation. Some things were called by names back then that we call by different names now. And, the O.T. was translated from the Hebrew language. Someone out there may have been able to trace 'unicorns' down, but I haven't heard of it yet.

    If there is no such things as unicorns, why is it mentioned unicorns in verse 24

    The whole Psalms is written a thousand years before the fact of Christ on the cross and what he went through down to even what the priest said. If your sharp and put the beginning of My God why hast thou forsaken Me and in Gospel "it is finished"you'll see that while Christ hung on the cross He taught this Psalm. Unicorn is Ox and dogs are the wicked putting him to the cross. Get a Companion Bible

    Verse 18 shows that these scriptures have a prophetic meaning. Comparing this verse with Mark 15:24, Luke 23:34, and John 19:23, 24 shows that thousands of years later these words were fulfilled in what happening with Jesus' garments.
