Old Testament

With a deep breath, and a thirst for what’s true,
whether one of faith, not, or agnostic,
let us then take a simple overview
of this ancient Hebrew text so Delphic.

From birth of creation in Genesis
to The Book’s denouement in Malachi,
there must be a catholic consensus
no honest, humble person can deny.

First chaos, then - a voice, people anxious,
a journey or battle or both, followed
by a blessed redemption, forgetfulness,
back to chaos where tale’s ever echoed.

In our mutable present and blurred past,
with reason and faith, where’s a clear contrast?
