If it's still raining you might try 'entreat' ;)
You mean the King James Version is wrong?
Now you all know that them church billboard folks like that King James English just the way the Lord wrote it down.
Exactly. How can you expect God to speak in fancy modern American English? If Moses could understand "intreat" then we should make the effort too.
You americans can't even speak proper english Like wot I Kan.
Exactly. If the language of the King James Bible was good enough for Moses and Elijah it should be good enough for Jim Bakker and Ted Haggard.
...but is it still raining?
It was raining yesterday morning Andrew. This morning it's something between a heavy mist and a light drizzle, with the forecast calling for showers tonight and thunderstorms tomorrow. You guys haven't been intreating the Lord hard enough.
just thought you might like to know that we have glorious sunshine here in the UK.
Hey, guess what? It's raining right now in Albuquerque too.
Intreat the Lord harder all you Americans. He's giving the Brits all our sunshine.
here is a little ditti for you while you ponder the Divine justice...The rain it raineth every dayUpon the just and unjust fellowBut more upon the just because The unjust hath the Just's umbrella!
