Psalm – Chapter 39: For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

The last chapter of the book of Psalms we read, Chapter 36, attacked those who do not fear the Lord.  An apology this chapter?  LOL!

“I will put a muzzle on my mouth while in the presence of the wicked.” – Psalm 39:1

If only this were true there’d be fewer religious people knocking on my door wanting to discuss Jesus.

“So I remained utterly silent, not even saying anything good.” – Psalm 39:2

If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.  If, to follow God, you must fight against equal rights, then yes, sit down and shut up.

The remaining verses are a plea to God to rid the world of the wicked so the author can somehow live in peace.  Peace is dead in a world of God.  God brought evil to this world.  God brought death and destruction.  It’s not the so-called wicked you rail against that did this.  God did this.

Coming Soon:  2 Samuel – Chapter 8:  David’s Victories
