The times they are a changin'

Once upon a time, this verse:
"Rescue me from the mouth of the lions; save me from the horns of the wild oxen" (Psaml 22:21)

was translated like this:
"Save me from the lion's mouth; and my lowliness from the horns of the unicorns." (Justin Martyr, Dialogue with Trypho, 98)
