Irish archaeologists, on Tuesday, confirmed an incredible find by a construction worker who was digging up a bog near Ireland's midlands, last week, when "just beyond the bucket of his bulldozer, he spotted something."
Pat Wallace, director of the National Museum of Ireland,remarked, "This is really a miracle find. There's two sets of odds that make this discovery really way out. First of all, it's unlikely that something this fragile could survive buried in a bog at all, and then for it to be unearthed and spotted before it was destroyed, is incalculably more amazing."
According to AOL News, The 20-page book of Psalms, dated back to the years 800-1000, and was found open to Psalm 83, in which God hears complaints of other nations' attempts to wipe out the name of Israel.
The discovery becomes even more miraculous with the fact that Jerusalem's Chief Rabbinate, Monday, called for worldwide prayer on behalf of Israel, to begin on Tuesday; one of the texts given to pray was Psalm 83.
