The Psalm was paraphrased using these three Bible translations: ‘The New International Standard Version of the Holy Bible’, ‘The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures’, and ‘The Hebrew Interlinear Bible’ by the Scripture4All Foundation of the Netherlands. Also valuable was ‘Strong's Exhaustive Concordance’ in ‘The Word Bible Software’ created by Costas Stergiou of Greece.
The alliteration was aided greatly by two rich resources of words: ‘Visuwords’, designed by Paul Dunn of Calgary, Alberta, and ‘The Phonistry’ by Steve Chrisomalis of Detroit, Michigan.
The beautiful font ‘Fifteen 36’ was created by Graham Blakelock of York, England, who was inspired by 16th century Roman book texts.
