Watching the 9-11 ceremonies, this morning from Ground Zero, I was struck by President Obama's words.

They sounded familiar and seemed as though they had to be from a Psalm.

After a brief search I found out I was right.
His 'speech' was Psalm 46:


1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. (Selah) 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High. 5 God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns. 6 The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts. 7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Selah) 8 Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what desolations he has brought on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. 10 "Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth." 11 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Selah)

I think, with Biden's speech, Obama's words from the Bible and Bush's reading of Lincoln's letter, combined with the moments of silence it was all more than reverent enough so as not to need an appearance of various clergy.

:cool:

So where is the influx of athiests indignant that a president would dare to quote from the Bible? Their silence on this thread is deafening!

I'm waiting for FOX or The Blaze to edit his speech and just show the segment of his speech where he said
"Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth."
