Psalm 23 : The North American Plains Indian Version. Psalm 23 in David Kirkpatricks blog, Travels in Transmedia. From their first encounters with Christian missionaries, the North American Plains Indians used universal sign language to communicate Psalm 23 among tribes who spoke different oral languages.
In 1894, Isabel Crawford, a Baptist missionary to the Kiowa Indians in Oklahoma, translated the Sign Version into literal English. Here is the Psalm 23 translation. The Great Father above is a shepherd Chief. Sometimes my heart is very weak and falls down but. He lifts me up again and draws me into a good road.
Sometime, it may be very soon, it may be a long, long time. He will draw me into a valley. It is dark there, but Ill be afraid not, for it is in between those mountains that the Shepherd Christ will meet me and the hunger that I have in my heart all through this life will be satisfied. He gives me a staff to lean upon.He spreads a table before me with all kinds of foods. He puts His hand upon my head and all the tired is gone.
My cup He fills till it runs over. What I tell is true. These roads that are away ahead will stay with me through this life and after; and afterwards I will go to live in the great house and sit down with the Shepherd Chief forever.
