Related to the Lesson-Sermon for July 25. 1976, in the CHRISTIAN SCIENCE QUARTERLY Subject: Truth

Thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name (Ps. 138:2)

This passage has proved difficult for translators. A modern tendency, however, has been to regard "above all" as an independent phrase meaning "before everything" and to understand "word" and "name" as parallel, the former perhaps connoting "promise" and the latter connoting "power." The Revised Standard Version translates, "Thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word."
