Catholic Answers Senior Apologist Jimmy Akin explains why some Bibles omit portions of Daniel and Esther.
Jimmy Akin was born in Texas and grew up nominally Protestant. At age 20 he experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, Jimmy started an intensive study of the Bible, but the more he immersed himself in Scripture, the more he found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he was compelled in conscience to enter the Catholic Church, which he did in 1992. His conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in the book Surprised By Truth.
Akin is a Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a member on the Catholic Answers Speakers Bureau, a weekly guest on the global radio program, Catholic Answers LIVE, a contributing editor for Catholic Answers Magazine, and the author of numerous publications, including the books Mass Confusion, The Salvation Controversy, The Fathers Know Best, and Mass Revision.
This beautiful hymn is a well known piece of Georgian Chant. This particular mode is from the Sunday after ash Wednesday. The image is Daniel in the Lions Den by Peter Paul Rubens. The Latin lyrics and English translation follow:
Jacta cogitatum tuum in Domino, et ipse te enutriet. Dum clamarum ad Dominum, exaudivit vocem meam ab his, qui appropinquant mihi.
Cast thy care upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee. While the claim to the Lord, He heard my voice, from them that draw near to me.
