The chapter of discussion today is Psalms 120. That’s a lot of chapters! Chapter 120, however, is not the last chapter of Psalms. Psalms is a HUGE book in the Bible and it’s going to take a while to get through. Fortunately the chronological order of Psalms breaks it up and intermixes it with other books of the Bible. Thus I don’t have to go through all chapters of Psalmsbefore moving on. Phew!
“I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me.” – Psalms 120:1
That may be, but just ask Job, answering you doesn’t mean your life will be better.
“Too long have I lived among those who hate peace.” – Psalms 120:6
So David hates God? God hates peace as we’ve seen over and over. The turmoil and strife in the Bible is the direct result of God interfering by hardening hearts.
“I am for peace; but when I speak, they are for war.” – Psalms 120:7
David confirms, he hates God. David is for peace, God is not.
A very short, seven verse chapter, but in Psalms 120 I think David just confirmed he’s an Atheist! 🙂
Coming Soon: Psalms – Chapter 140: For the director of music. A psalm of David.
