Psalms – Chapter 77: For the director of music. For Jeduthun. Of Asaph. A psalm.

I’m not sure I can take more of David praising God and completely ignoring the horrible acts God has caused.  But alas, I must continue!

“I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.” – Psalms 77:1

To be blunt, this is David’s number one problem.

“Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time?” – Psalms 77:8

Something that never existed cannot suddenly vanish or fail.

“I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.” – Psalms 77:11

What deeds?  The deeds of hardening hearts?  The deeds of murdering children?  The miracles of killing everyone on Earth and re-populating the planet through incest?

“Your ways, God, are holy.” – Psalms 77:13

Murder is not holy.  Hardening hearts is not holy.

“The clouds poured down water, the heavens resounded with thunder; your arrows flashed back and forth.” – Psalms 77:17

This is simply a thunderstorm.  Not God.

More of the same in Psalms 77.  David praises God’s miracles, completely ignoring that these ‘miracles’ are often the result of hardening hearts and committing murder.  But hey, what is someone’s brutal murder is someone else’s unfailing love.

Coming Soon:  Psalms – Chapter 78:  A maskil of Asaph.
