Psalm – Chapter 80: For the director of music. To the tune of “The Lilies of the Covenant.” Of Asaph. A psalm.

Today we continue with Psalm 80.

“Hear us, Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock.” – Psalm 80:1

Bad analogy. Good shepherds do not abandon their flock.

“How long, Lord God Almighty, will your anger smolder against the prayers of your people?” – Psalm 80:4

A god who is angry all the time does not love you. This god is an abuser.

“Restore us, Lord God Almighty; make your face shine on us, that we may be saved.” – Psalm 80:19

God leads by fear. Not love. The people are scared of him and begged him to save them. There is no love in this god.

Another chapter in Psalms in which the people are begging to be saved, to be loved. This angry, jealous god does not love them.

Coming Soon: Psalm – Chapter 135: Untitled

One thought on “Psalm – Chapter 80: For the director of music. To the tune of “The Lilies of the Covenant.” Of Asaph. A psalm.

  1. This is another example of what would the god I believe in say in a given scenario the make up the interactions as though it was fact. It’s truly remarkable that any religious text has the weight of truth or something relevant to impart for improving the human condition.
