Not all that strange - it's been around for 1600 years or so!  But, 
sadly Ps 151 doesn't get a look in.  Ps 1 and Ps 150 are identical in 
the protestant and Catholic canons - it's just some of the ones in 
between that are one number out.

I take great hope from all of this!  If the church was so divided just 
four hundred years after Jesus walked this earth that it couldn't agree 
on its bible, why should things be any different today?  It's a good job 
God has a great sense of humour.  Maybe we should learn to have that 
same sense of humour!!!

Sorry to get all religious - I'm sure this is not the place for it.

God bless,
