moonwalking birds, alcoholic monkeys, fish with two..uh...Anyway, we started a 56-year series on Isaiah

I love our tribe.
Today's  open source  ( or is it "open sores"?..see this) conversation on the practical spiritual application of some of these "world's weirdest" animals was great:

Here's the whole series of "World's Wierdest"..270 weird animals!
We also started a 56-year series on which everyone contributed.
Spy Scott gave some historical help, as you can see..

Here are  a couple links on the puns and wordplays in Isaiah that were mentioned:

Click this for Isaiah 42 wordplay (on board).


Isaiah 5:7 and Puns in Hebrew

Since I’m presently working on Isaiah for the series it’s only natural that I’d wind up in Chapter 5 with it’s stunningly beautiful pun

לְמִשְׁפָּט֙ וְהִנֵּ֣ה מִשְׂפָּ֔ח לִצְדָקָ֖ה וְהִנֵּ֥ה צְעָקָֽה׃

God looked for justice (mishpat) but only saw oppression (mispach). God looked for righteousness (tzedakah) and instead he heard an outcry of pain (tz’acha).
This pun is virtually impossible to render in English. link
