Today marks the 16th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack in the U.S. A perfect day to discuss a chapter in the book of Psalms, right? Maybe not, but I’m going to anyway. 😊
“May those who want to take my life be put to shame and confusion, may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.” – Psalm 70:2
If someone is trying to kill you, why ask for them to be put to shame and confusion. Why not ask for them to be arresting and punished appropriately?
“But as for me, I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God.” – Psalm 70:5
We were told in the last chapter that God always helps those who are needy. But other than stating this, where is the evidence? Where in the Bible has God helped the needy? The Israelites? Maybe, but only if you forget it was God who delivered the Israelites their suffering by hardening the hearts of the Egyptians.
Psalm 70 is a short chapter in which we are told the evil will be shamed and the needy will be helped. Once again, however, no evidence is provided.
Coming Soon: 2 Samuel – Chapter 11: David and Bathsheba
