2. Dr. Richard Griffith: King David &
The Minstrel Boy
There is a very stirring rendition of the Irish war song "The Minstrel Boy" from
an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation available on youtube (.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJudJ9S579A).
It is a poignant scene in which Admiral Maxwell realizes his career is over for
attacking the Cardassians in violation of a peace treaty, and he asks his friend
Miles O'Brien about that song they always used to sing together. They then sing
the opening verses together. It is cool to see the song brought back to life
for a new generation.
As I listened to the song again I realized the song has an unmistakeable Davidic
influence. King David is the true minstrel boy. He is the true warrior/bard who
straps on his father's sword, and goes to war with his harp slung on his back
praising God and faithful to the end.
Dr. Richard Griffith
"The song's first verse was sung by the
character Miles O'Brien (Colm
in the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode "The Wounded" (air date January
28, 1991). Its tune is heard on several occasions during Star Trek: Deep Space
Nine (usually in reference to Miles O'Brien). It plays in the final episode
"What You Leave Behind" when O'Brien is looking at his empty quarters and
recalls his life aboard Deep Space 9."
"The Minstrel Boy" is an Irish patriotic
song written by Thomas Moore (1779-1852) who set it to the melody of The
an old Irish air. It is widely believed that Moore composed the song in
remembrance of a number of his friends, whom he met while studying at Trinity
College, Dublin and who had participated in (and were killed during) the 1798
rebellion of the United Irishmen. However, the song gained widespread popularity
and became a favourite
of many Irishmen who fought during the United States Civil War and gained even
more popularity after World War I. The song is notably associated with
that historically had a heavy representation of Irish-Americans, in particular
the police and fire departments of New York, Boston and Chicago and those of
various other major US metropolitan areas, even after those
have ceased to have a substantial over-representation of personnel of Irish
ancestry. The melody is frequently played at funerals of members and/or officers
of such organisations
who have died or been killed in service, typically on bagpipes. Unsurprisingly,
given its lyrics, it is also associated with the Irish Army and with
traditionally Irish regiments and/or Irish Brigades found in other armies. (A
song with similar status is the more recent "Danny Boy".) The text of the
original song follows:
The minstrel boy to the war is gone,
In the ranks of death you'll find him;
His father's sword he hath girded on,
And his wild harp slung behind him;
"Land of Song!" cried the warrior bard,
all the world betrays thee,
One sword, at least, thy right shall guard,
One faithful harp shall praise thee!"
The Minstrel fell! But the foeman's chain
Could not bring that proud soul under;
The harp he lov'd
ne'er spoke again,
For he tore its chords asunder;
And said "No chains shall sully thee,
Thou soul of love and brav'ry!
Thy songs were made for the pure and free
They shall never sound in slavery!
During the American Civil War, a third verse was added
The minstrel boy will return one day,
When we hear the news, we will cheer it.
The minstrel boy will return we pray,
Torn in body, perhaps, but not in spirit.
Then may he play his harp in peace,
In a world such as Heaven intended,
For every quarrel of Man must cease,
And every battle shall be ended.

Re: Psalms 110
I just love these translated psalms and the fact you seek to find and use
original Hebrew word translations.

RE: Brit-Am Now no. 1164 - Conspiracy Argument
I agree with you that there is no classical 'conspiracy', such as
Freemasons, Illuminati, international bankers etc. trying to secretly take
over the world. I believe such activity is too easily discovered or
betrayed long before it gains any real power. There are too many
countervailing forces, all equally shrewd and driven, that naturally arise.
To worry about such obscure and impossible things is simply a waste of
The monotheistic religions could probably be said, to widely varying
degrees, to desire to see all people converted to their belief, but these
are not conspiracies in the usual sense. They're not going about it in
secret and they believe ultimate power rests in the deity rather than
However I think many people sense that there is a coordinated effort
(conspiracy is the wrong word) to undermine the physical and spiritual
cohesion of greater Israel and the destabilize the economic order that
greater Israel provides.
I don't think it's a simply a coincidence that those in the US and Europe
who desire to destroy the State of Israel are also in nearly all cases
favorably disposed toward: unrestricted immigration, homosexual rights,
abortion rights, prohibiting private gun ownership, prohibiting private
education, prohibiting parental discipline of children, prohibiting nuclear
power, prohibiting the death penalty, cutting US defense spending, and
promoting higher taxation and universal health care.
All of these issues work to undermine the freedom, moral strength and
economic vitality of Anglo-Saxon states, who are Israel's primary friends in
the world, to the extent that Israel has any friends at all.
I do think there are spiritual powers in high places that we fight against
and that we see their activity in the world. I believe that this is the
I would not go so far as to call it "a coordinated
but rather a de facto consensus amongst elements that reject Biblical values.
In some ways this may be even worse than a concerted "conspiracy" directed
by organized parties.
On the other hand it shows what the counter-reaction should be,
Increase Bible appreciation in all spheres.
Bible Believers should fight back.
On the Internet,
Do not engage in open confrontations but rather every time you come across
some part strengthening Bible Belief pass it on to others.
You may do this on the Brit-Am List or anywhere else.
You can also do this and help Brit-Am at the same time e.g. if you come across an
a Bible Commentary or a note that pleased you and you think others may also be
it, forward it to friends, or forums where there is a chance it may be accepted.
sounds very similiar
to places in Scotland
I am a mum living in Scotland and thought I would send you a quick note.
I have been reading your article recently . In church they teach are taught
that we are the House of Israel but I never really have known why and have
always presumed they have meant spiritually. However I have now read a few
articles on the Web concerning the potential genetic links to the Jewish
people. Praise be to God
Anyway the reason I am writing is because I noticed that you were referring to
Tarshish and for some reason I have felt this refers to Scotland I don't really
The point I wanted to make is that we have small islands of the coast of
Scotland called Mishnish and Fishnish. Both are pronounce with the ' i ' as the
' i ' is Fig. I had been pronouncing Tarshish as Tarsheesh. However if you
pronounce it like the other islands then they sound very similar.
I don't know if this helps or if this email will get to you but I wish you
wisdom in your research.
May God Bless
DID YOU KNOW THAT:
According to the Bible Ten out of the Twelve Tribes of Israel split away(1-Kings
12:19), formed their own kingdom of "Israel" (1-Kings 12:20) and were exiled by
the Assyrians (2-Kings 17:18) . They forget their identity (Hosea 1:9 7:8 Isaiah
49:21) and became the Lost Ten Tribes. In the future they will re-unite with the
Jews of "Judah" (Ezekiel 37, Isaiah 11:13 Jeremiah 3:18) but until then they
have a role of their own to fulfill. They were destined to be situated at the
continental extremities of the earth such as North America, the British Isles,
Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa
(Deuteronomy 33:13 Isaiah 24:16 26:15 41:8-9 49:6), to be the richest (Genesis
27:28 49:25 Deuteronomy 33:13-16 Hosea 2:8), and most powerful nations on earth
(Numbers 24:8-7 Micah 5:7-9) and to control major international strategic bases
(Genesis 22:16-17 24:60).
They were also destined to be in the "Land of
(Isaiah 49:12) meaning Australia.
All of these points together with numerous others show that descendants of the
Lost Ten Tribes can only be found amongst Western Nations especially the
English-speaking ones. The correctness of our interpretation of the relevant
verses is confirmed by traditional Jewish sources and by the findings of
up-to-date historical and scientific research. Your destiny may depend upon this
