Psalms – Chapter 9: For the director of music. To the tune of “The Death of the Son.” A psalm of David.

Last week, in our last look into Psalms, we learned children and infants were praising God, although they likely had no idea of the killing of children and infants at God’s hands.  Let’s jump into Psalms 9 and see what it has in store for us.

“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” – Psalms 9:1

Will that telling include the story of the children and infants God has killed?  Will it include the women he has raped?  Will it include the hardening of hearts at his hands?  I didn’t think so.

“You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.” – Psalms 9:5

First, there is no evidence these nations were wicked, aside from God hardening their hearts.  Second, if there is evil, if there are wicked people, the Bible makes it very clear God created this evil (see Isaiah 45:7).

“He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity.” – Psalms 9:8

ROFL!!!  How can David say this with a straight face?  Sure, God judges with equity for all those who love him unconditionally and follow his ludicrous rules to a ‘T’!  Think for yourself and that equity goes away.

“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” – Psalms 9:10

Yeah, right.  Tell that to Job who lost his family over God’s bet with Satan.

“The Lord is known by his acts of justice…” – Psalms 9:16

ROFL!!!  Another one of those verses that is so ridiculous to anyone who has read the Bible.  Acts of justice?  ROFL!!!

“But God will never forget the needy…” – Psalms 9:18

I can accept this as truth.  Unfortunately God doesn’t do anything for the needy.  He just sees them and does nothing.

“Strike them with terror, Lord; let the nations know they are only mortal.” – Psalms 9:20

Because every good leader rules with fear.

That concludes Psalms 9.  There is so much wrong in this chapter it’s hard to keep a straight face while reading it.  God is just?  God judges with equality?  God loves?  God remembers the needy and helps them?  God is righteous?  Wow!  None of that is true and the Bible states so very clearly many times!!!  It just takes someone to sit down and actually read the Bible.
