After a few, horrible, disgusting chapters in 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles, we move back to the book of Psalms.
“Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered.” – Psalm 32:1
David had his sins taken away by God. As a result, women were raped and a child suffered for seven days before being murdered by God. Blessed is a very misleading word in this verse.
“Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit.” – Psalm 32:2
Again, great for David. Horrible for those God kills to clear David of his sins.
“For day and night your hand was heavy on me, my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.” – Psalm 32:4
A WHOLE day? That baby suffered for SEVEN days. Fuck you David.
“Therefore let all the faithful pray to you while you may be found, surely the rising of the mighty waters will not reach them.” – Psalm 32:6
Recently a hurricane hit Houston, TX with massive rainfall resulting in unprecedented flooding. People died. There were certainly faithful people praying to God to save them. God sat by and did nothing. Either he’s an asshole god who gets his jollies off of human suffering, or he doesn’t exist.
“Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him.” – Psalm 32:10
Many people put all of their trust in the Lord and receive none of that ‘unfailing love’. Again, either this god is an asshole, or he doesn’t exist.
That concludes Psalm 32. God is supposedly great. If only we place our faith in him we’ll be saved. Unfortunately this is proved wrong every day when very faithful people place their faith in God but suffer nonetheless.
Coming Soon: Psalm – Chapter 51: For the director of music. A psalm of David. When the prophet Nathan came to him after David had committed adultery with Bathsheba.
