The Bible Commemorated

Nobel Prize Day, celebrated annually on December 10, commemorates the death of chemist, scientist, and inventor, Alfred Nobel. The annual prize bearing his name is one of the most prestigious awards in the world. The Cavendish Laboratory, the Department of Physics at Cambridge University, has been the site for many of the discoveries of twenty-nine Nobel laureates over the years, recognized for research in physics and other sciences.

And carved on the wooden doors of the old laboratory, in Latin, and on the doors of the new Cavendish Laboratory, in the English of the Coverdale Bible, is Psalm 111:2: “The works of the LORD are great, sought out of all of them that have pleasure therein” (KJV).
