Medieval Christian book discovered in an Irish Bog

A medieval Christian book has been discovered in an Irish bog. The book is a copy of the Book of Psalms and is 1,200 years old. The book is a wonderful historic find and can give a greater appreciation of the monasteries in Ireland.

In a kind of weird and scary bit a trivia the book was open to Psalm 83 which describes a multinational effort to destroy Israel; sound familiar? (Note: National "freaking religiously dumb" Geographic tries to dismiss the Psalm 83 "fear" with saying how the King James Bible has the habit of moving things around. Sorry, but Psalm 83 and the Israel passage are the same in Christian faiths that use Bibles translated or made before the King James Version. Freaking Philistines!)
