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.
