There is something wrong, I'm sure, with that memorial inscription on this lady's headstone.  Should it not read..."I bear you on eagles' wings".....not ".....bare you....."?

Exactly my thoughts, too, however Exodus 19.4 says shows "bare" (but the alternative "bore" is much better in my opinion).
I think it's down to the King James Bible using "bare" which may have been correct in the 1600's but superceded nowadays....
