Let my people go . . .

"Let my people go"--everyone knows those words that God told Moses to say to Pharaoh.
In Hebrew, "Shalach ami veya'avduni."
Hey, look, there is a second part in that sentence:
"Let my people go, that they may serve me."
.
From a Greek Psalter, 9th century, Yetsiat Mitsraim
.
ABC Wednesday is celebrating the letter L today.

I found a link to the term Psalter. How very interesting. I saw a show at the Getty where a great many of these borrowed psalters were on display. They were some of the earliest paintings after the death of Christ and from a palestinian school. At least thats what I remember.
