Psalm 37:21

Depending on which version of the Bible you have, there are many versions of this Psalm, each varying slightly.  Below are a few of the versions and you can see how, depending upon the wording, somewhat different interpretations can be had.  In light of all our McKinney excitement, I'm curious...Christianity, debt, bankruptcy...what do y'all think about it all? Any other Biblical quotes to point one way or another to share?

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
The wicked borrows and does not pay back, But the righteous is gracious and gives.

 King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)
The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

 American Standard Version
The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again; But the righteous dealeth graciously, and giveth.

 Douay-Rheims Bible
The sinner shall borrow, and not pay again; but the just sheweth mercy and shall give.

 World English Bible
The wicked borrow, and don't pay back, but the righteous give generously.

Happy Easter!

***Edited to add that I finally re-loaned our Kiva fund and was lucky enough to find 2 groups that just struck me as people we should help and both groups only needed one more loan to get them to their goal amount!  A two-fer of cool is that?  :-)  So, down there to the right, I have the new information up so we can watch their progress!   Also, if anyone wants to help on their own, for a limited time Kiva is allowing existing members to offer an invitation to new members, and it includes $25 to lend!  You can sign up using this link:  Kiva - You're invited to Join Kiva  and just know I get nothing for this, nor does this blog. Kiva is doing it solely to get new lenders to join, so give it a shot and help someone out!***

If no one minds, I think we'll skip church again and go Easter hunting with Roobii.
