Psalm – Chapter 64: For the director of music. A psalm of David.

By now we all know what to expect from a chapter in Psalms, but alas, I must continue through this very repetitive book.

“Hear me, my God, as I voice my complaint; protect my life from the threat of the enemy.” – Psalm 64:1

Would David have these enemies if he didn’t kill and rape?

“They shoot from ambush at the innocent; they shoot suddenly, without fear.” – Psalm 64:4

I’m sorry, but THEY are the innocents you harmed.  They are simply defending themselves from further harm by YOU!

“But God will shoot them with his arrows; they will suddenly be struck down.” – Psalm 64:7

This is probably true.  We’ve seen time and time again God attacking and harming innocents.

“All people will fear; they will proclaim the works of God and ponder what he has done.” – Psalm 64:9

If by ponder you mean the people will question why God demands murder and rape, then yes, the people will ponder.

What did we learn in this chapter?  David really has a stick up his ass regarding people he’s harmed defending themselves.  David definitely lives in a bubble of God’s making.
