I cannot give you the full flavour of the diagramming and data based tool I am using - but here is a thumbnail of Psalm 22. The image is ordinary and somewhat colorless compared to many of the others - not that the psalm is unimportant. Seeing the structure is one key to understanding. How will we see structure on such a small surface for a large poem?

I just discovered that I had already translated Psalms 117 and 118 - and here comes 115 too which has more to its repetition than first meets the eye. They roll off the machine and I am scarcely aware of them - and I still can't speak this language! But piano, piano - like Bach's 6th suite in the background, I will remember - the endless has an end in me.
