Og


There he was again tonight at Evening Prayer - Og the King of Basan (or Bashan).  Memories of giggling during the psalms in Evensong in my mis-spent youth. Apparently he's mentioned  22 times in the Bible.

Did you ever wonder who he was?  Have a look here or, for an entertaining read, here (including the picture above, and the story of how what was thought to be King Og's skeleton was in fact that of an elephant).

Let's hear it for Og...
