In this second video of just a few days ago, the President of the Republic of Guinea Alpha Condé, a Muslim. What is curious about Condé, is the gift he presents to the Pope, an image of the pagan god of fertility, Nmba.
A canticle for David himself, when the house wasbuilt after the captivity. Sing ye to the Lord anew canticle: sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing ye to the Lord and bless his name: shewforth his salvation from day to day.
3 Declare his glory among the Gentiles: hiswonders among all people.
4 For the Lord is great, and exceedingly to bepraised: he is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils:but the Lord made the heavens.
6 Praise and beauty are before him: holinessand majesty in his sanctuary.
7 Bring ye to the Lord, O ye kindreds of theGentiles, bring ye to the Lord glory and honour:
8 Bring to the Lord glory unto his name.Bring up sacrifices, and come into his courts:
9 Adore ye the Lord in his holy court. Let allthe earth be moved at his presence.
10 Say ye among the Gentiles, the Lord hathreigned. For he hath corrected the world, whichshall not be moved: he will judge the people withjustice.
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earthbe glad, let the sea be moved, and the fullnessthereof:
12 The fields and all things that are in themshall be joyful. Then shall all the trees of thewoods rejoice
13 before the face of the Lord, because hecometh: because he cometh to judge the earth.He shall judge the world with justice, and the
people with his truth.
