Here is a parchment leaf from an ancient Greek codex, about the 5th century AD, with verses from Psalm 3:4-8. When I consider the antiquity of God’s Word, preserved through the ages, not one jot or tittle having been lost, it gives me such a sense of security and hope.
To the LORD I cry aloud,
and he answers me from his holy hill.
I lie down and sleep;
I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.
I will not fear the tens of thousands
drawn up against me on every side.
Arise, O LORD!
Deliver me, O my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.
From the LORD comes deliverance.
May your blessing be on your people.
