After a couple chapters in 1 Kings we move back to Psalms for a few chapters.
“Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.” – Psalm 37:1-2
Um…this is not a very good analogy. Grass comes back every year. It will even stay partially green in the winter.
“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.” – Psalm 37:7
Yes, keep waiting while you suffer. And when you die from that suffering, keep waiting.
“Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil.” – Psalm 37:8
ROFL! This verse tells us to be exactly the opposite of God!
“But the meek will inherit the land and enjoy peace and prosperity.” – Psalm 37:11
Except they don’t. Inequality between the rich and the poor grows every year.
“The blameless spend their days under the Lord’s care, and their inheritance will endure forever.” – Psalm 37:18
According to multiple other verses in the Bible, there are no blameless. Everyone lives in sin. Does this verse then mean no one is under the Lord’s care? Hmmm.
“I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread.” – Psalm 37:25
Um…children suffer all the time in the Bible. They are too often unjustifiably punished for the crimes of others.
“The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.” – Psalm 37:40
Time and time again we see the Lord is the most wicked of them all in the Bible. He saves no one.
Another chapter in Psalms and another list of items easily refuted by reading the Bible in its entirety.
