Psalms – Chapter 21: For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Our last look into Psalms was one big WTF moment.  A literal WTF moment as I used WTF four times!  So what’s the over/under on the number of WTFs I use in this chapter!  🙂

“You have granted him his heart’s desire and have not withheld the request of his lips.” – Psalms 21:2

God needs a mortal man to grant his heart’s desire?  Not much of a god if that’s the case.

“You came to greet him with rich blessings and placed a crown of pure gold on his head.” – Psalms 21:3

How do you place a gold crown on a head that never makes an appearance?

“The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath, and his fire will consume them.” – Psalms 21:9

But remember, God loves you!

“You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind.” – Psalms 21:10

Yes, because nothing is more moral than killing those who are innocent.

Okay, so not as many WTFs in this chapter.  In fact, I didn’t use any, unless you count the four I used at the beginning when I was describing the WTF moments of Psalms 19.  Do those count?  Yeah, why not.  I’m sure I could have used some WTFs in this chapter too.  J

Psalms – Chapter 16: A miktam of David.

Well, that was two chapters in a row in which David called non-believers fools and evildoers.  If by fool you mean a critical thinker, than fine, I’m a fool.  Will there be more attacks on non-believers in Psalms 16?  Let’s find out.

“I say to the Lord, ‘You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.’” – Psalms 16:2

I can think of a few.  Happiness.  Less murder.  Less raping.  Critical thinking.  No hardening of hearts.  Just to name a few.

“Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.” – Psalms 16:5

Really?  Because the Israelites have never been secure in the Bible.

“The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.” – Psalms 16:6

David, you are a king, so of course you find it pleasant.  You have everything you could want.  Your slaves on the other hand…

“…because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay.” – Psalms 16:10

All people die and all corpses decay, David.  Even in biblical times one should know this.

Another short chapter in Psalms in which David praises God.  I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of this woe is me talk from David who is richer, as king, than everyone, yet complains life isn’t good enough.  Sigh.

Coming Soon:  Psalms – Chapter 19:  For the director of music. A psalm of David.

Psalms – Chapter 14: For the director of music. Of David.

So Psalms 10 told us that those who do not believe are evil.  Simply not believing makes you evil according to the Bible.  Not a surprise given the Bible was written by men in order to control the masses.  Now it’s time to move into Psalms 14.

“The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.” – Psalms 14:1

More attacks on non-believers.  Sorry David, but the fool is one who doesn’t question.  The fool is one who accepts everything without critical thinking.  You, David, are the fool.

“You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the Lord is their refuge.” – Psalms 14:6

Um yeah…keep telling yourself that.

And that’s it for this chapter.  More attacks on the unbelievers, or shall I say, the critical thinkers.

Coming Soon:  Psalms – Chapter 16:  A miktam of David.

Psalms – Chapter 10: Untitled

In the last chapter of Psalms David tried to tell us God is just and judges with equity.  LOL!  Will he tell the truth in this chapter?  Doubtful.

“Why, Lord, do you stand far off?  Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble?” – Psalms 10:1

Because he doesn’t exist.

“In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.” – Psalms 10:4

Hmmm…I guess that means I’m wicked.  I have no room for a make believe god in my life.

“He lies in wait near the villages; from ambush he murders the innocent.” – Psalms 10:8

Sigh…the lie that you can’t be good without God.  Because somehow you can only be good if you believe in a god who murders innocents, children, and babies, and rapes women.  Yeah.

“Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless.” – Psalms 10:12

Too late.  God forgot the helpless long ago.  Look around.

“The Lord is King for ever and ever; the nations will perish from his land.” – Psalms 10:16

If true, he also brought evil into this world.  David’s entire plea only exists because God created evil.

“You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed, so that mere earthly mortals will never again strike terror.” – Psalms 10:17-18

God may listen, but he doesn’t do anything to help.  Look around the world.  If there’s a god, he’s not doing anything to help.  Oh yeah, I forgot.  God works in mysterious ways.  Barf.

That concludes Psalms 10.  David basically links not believing in God to immoral and evil behavior.  Sorry, but according to the Bible, God is the one who brought evil to this world.  Not man.  Morality is not made by a book written by men trying to control the masses.

Coming Soon:  Psalms – Chapter 14:  For the director of music. Of David.

Psalms – Chapter 9: For the director of music. To the tune of “The Death of the Son.” A psalm of David.

Last week, in our last look into Psalms, we learned children and infants were praising God, although they likely had no idea of the killing of children and infants at God’s hands.  Let’s jump into Psalms 9 and see what it has in store for us.

“I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.” – Psalms 9:1

Will that telling include the story of the children and infants God has killed?  Will it include the women he has raped?  Will it include the hardening of hearts at his hands?  I didn’t think so.

“You have rebuked the nations and destroyed the wicked; you have blotted out their name for ever and ever.” – Psalms 9:5

First, there is no evidence these nations were wicked, aside from God hardening their hearts.  Second, if there is evil, if there are wicked people, the Bible makes it very clear God created this evil (see Isaiah 45:7).

“He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity.” – Psalms 9:8

ROFL!!!  How can David say this with a straight face?  Sure, God judges with equity for all those who love him unconditionally and follow his ludicrous rules to a ‘T’!  Think for yourself and that equity goes away.

“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.” – Psalms 9:10

Yeah, right.  Tell that to Job who lost his family over God’s bet with Satan.

“The Lord is known by his acts of justice…” – Psalms 9:16

ROFL!!!  Another one of those verses that is so ridiculous to anyone who has read the Bible.  Acts of justice?  ROFL!!!

“But God will never forget the needy…” – Psalms 9:18

I can accept this as truth.  Unfortunately God doesn’t do anything for the needy.  He just sees them and does nothing.

“Strike them with terror, Lord; let the nations know they are only mortal.” – Psalms 9:20

Because every good leader rules with fear.

That concludes Psalms 9.  There is so much wrong in this chapter it’s hard to keep a straight face while reading it.  God is just?  God judges with equality?  God loves?  God remembers the needy and helps them?  God is righteous?  Wow!  None of that is true and the Bible states so very clearly many times!!!  It just takes someone to sit down and actually read the Bible.

Coming Soon:  Psalms – Chapter 10:  Untitled

Psalms – Chapter 8: For the director of music. According to gittith. A psalm of David.

Can David be as whiny as he was in Psalms 6?  Let’s find out.

“Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” – Psalms 8:1

Um…speak for yourself David!

“Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.” – Psalms 8:2

Are you kidding me?  Praise from children and infants?  Hardly!  God has brutally murdered children and infants!  They aren’t praising him.  Besides, children and infants only know of a god because their parents indoctrinate them just as they were indoctrinated by their parents.

“You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor.” – Psalms 8:5

Humans are just a little lower than angels?  If God hardens the hearts of humans and brutally has them murdered, what does that mean for the angels?  Murdered, but not brutally since they are just a little bit higher than humans?

“Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!” – Psalms 8:9

Again, speak for yourself David.

To me, the most astonishing part of this chapter is the part in which David says children and infants praise God.  WOW!  I don’t doubt children and infants praise him, but these are the ones indoctrinated and unaware of who God has brutally murdered and hasn’t.  If these children and infants knew the true nature of God, they’d never be praising him.

Coming Soon:  Psalms – Chapter 9:  For the director of music. To the tune of “The Death of the Son.” A psalm of David.

Psalms – Chapter 6: For the director of music. With stringed instruments. According to sheminith. A psalm of David.

After a few chapters in 2 Samuel in which we see David officially become king of the Israelites, we now move back to Psalms for a few chapters, starting with Psalms 6.

“Have mercy on me, Lord, for I am faint; heal me, Lord, for my bones are in agony.” – Psalms 6:2

David is literally a king with riches upon riches.  He has multiple wives and concubines.  Yet he is faint and his bones are in agony?  Quit whining and hire a freaking doctor!

“Turn, Lord, and deliver me; save me because of your unfailing love.” – Psalms 6:4

The same unfailing love that murders children and babies and rapes women.

“All my enemies will be overwhelmed with shame and anguish; they will turn back and suddenly be put to shame.” – Psalms 6:10

And by “put to shame” David really means they’ll be brutally murdered.

Psalms 6 is not all that different from all other chapters in Psalms, except David is super whiny in this chapter.  Crying is fine and the world would be a better place if people accepted they have emotions and understand crying is okay.  David, however, takes it way too far.  This guy is rich.  He’s a king.  He has everything he needs, yet he cries to God for more.  Not all Christians are like this, but many are.
