Psalm – Chapter 38: A psalm of David. A petition.

After a few chapters in 2 Samuel in which we learned of even more reasons God is evil, we move back to the book of Psalms, starting with chapter 5 today.

“For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness; with you, evil people are not welcome.” – Psalm 5:4

God isn’t pleased with wickedness?  Are you sure?  Read Isaiah 45:7.  God is the one who CREATED evil! We learned in a previous chapter of Psalms that God made babies wicked!  Psalms specifically told us those who are wicked are born wicked!  This is a god who loves evil because he IS evil!

“The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, Lord, detest.” – Psalm 5:6

So the Lord detests itself?  No one is more bloodthirsty than the Lord.

“Not a word from their mouth can be trusted; their heart is filled with malice.” – Psalm 5:9

If their hearts are filled with malice, blame God.  God is the one who brought evil into this world.  God is the one who hardens hearts.  Evil exists because of God.

“Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.” – Psalm 5:10

Says David, who has raped and murdered tens to hundreds of thousands of people.

“Surely, Lord, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.” – Psalm 5:12

David should talk to Job on this one.  😊

This concludes Psalm 5.  David describes God in a way that is the exact opposite of who God is and what God has done to this world.  All assuming, of course, a god even exists.  If a god does exist and it is the god of the Bible, then it is a VERY evil god.

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.

Coming Soon:  2 Samuel – Chapter 19:  David Returns to Jerusalem

Psalm – Chapter 62: For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

David’s life is so tough.  God makes him king.  God gives him multiple wives and concubines.  God allows, and in many cases demands, David to rape and murder innocents.  But David continues to beg to God to help him more.  This is basically the theme of the book of Psalms.  That and a bunch of praising to God.  What will we see in this chapter?  Praising of God?  David begging?  Both?  Let’s find out.

“Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.” – Psalm 62:2

Again, is this rock a hardened heart?  😊

“Surely they intend to topple me from my lofty place; they take delight in lies.” – Psalm 62:4

You murder and rape!  Are you fucking kidding me?

“Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.” – Psalm 62:6

Do you know what is more rock-like than God?  An actual rock!!!  Rocks are more real than God too.  😊

“Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.” – Psalm 62:8

Yes, trust in God when he tells you slavery is okay, some women deserve to be raped, and babies should be murdered.

“…and with you, Lord, is unfailing love…” – Psalm 62:11

Unfailing love, but conditions do apply.  That’s how the god of the Bible works.

So what happened in this chapter?  God was praised and David begged.  In other words, no different than every other chapter of the book of Psalms.

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

Psalm – Chapter 61: For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.

Let’s jump right in to Psalm 61.

“From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” – Psalm 61:2

Is the rock in this verse a hardened heart?  Remember that NONE of what is happening in these chapters occurs if God doesn’t harden the hearts of the Egyptians.

“For you, God, have heard my vows; you have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.” – Psalm 61:5

This is correct.  Well, not sure the god of the Bible hears any vows, but he picks and chooses his favorites and David is one of those favorites.

“Increase the days of the king’s life, his years for many generations.” – Psalm 61:6

Yes, increase the life of the king who rapes and murders innocents.  Sigh.

This concludes Psalm 61.  David begs for help.  Apparently God hasn’t given him enough.  God allows David to rape and murder, but that’s just not enough for this ‘king’.

Coming Soon:  Psalm – Chapter 62:  For the director of music. For Jeduthun. A psalm of David.

Psalm – Chapter 58: For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” Of David. A miktam.

The ridiculousness of Psalms continues today with chapter 58.

“Even from birth the wicked go astray; from the womb they are wayward, spreading lies.” – Psalm 58:3

God damn those wicked babies!  Think about what this means.  If we are wicked from birth and God exists, God is the one who caused us to be wicked.  What kind of god is this if he makes babies wicked?  Not a loving god, that’s for sure.

“Even from birth the wicked go astray; from the womb they are wayward, spreading lies. Their venom is like the venom of a snake, like that of a cobra that has stopped its ears, that will not heed the tune of the charmer, however skillful the enchanter may be.” – Psalm 58:3-5

Damn these babies are wicked!

“Break the teeth in their mouths, O God; Lord, tear out the fangs of those lions!” – Psalm 58:6

Most babies are born toothless.

“The righteous will be glad when they are avenged, when they dip their feet in the blood of the wicked.” – Psalm 58:10

I’m not sure righteous is the best adjective to describe those that dip their feed in the blood of the wicked.  Let’s see, what’s a better word for this?  Hmmm…how about…FUCKING WEIRD!!!!  Okay, that’s two words.

This is a very odd chapter that makes the claim, indirectly, that those who are wicked were born wicked and can do nothing to change.  How’s that unfailing love going for you?

Coming Soon:  Psalm – Chapter 61:  For the director of music. With stringed instruments. Of David.

Psalm – Chapter 40: For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

We learned in the last chapter that David is blameless.  LOL!  What bullshit will we learn this chapter?

“Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.” – Psalm 40:3

Again, the theme that fear is required to love God is sick.  If you love someone you don’t require they fear you.

“Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.” – Psalm 40:4

Yes, trust the Lord when he commands you to rape, murder, and slaughter innocents, including babies.

“Many, Lord my God, are the wonders you have done, the things you planned for us.” – Psalm 40:5

Name one wonder God has done.

“Sacrifice and offering you did not desire…” – Psalm 40:6

What?  God demands all sorts of sacrifices!  These rules are laid out in Leviticus!!!

“For troubles without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.” – Psalm 40:12

Last chapter David said he was blameless.  Now his sins have overtaken him?

“But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me.” – Psalm 40:17

I’m sorry…David is the poor and needy one?  WTF?

So Psalm 40 was another load of bullshit.  David is caught contradicting the Bible and outright lies about being blameless, poor, and needy.  In other words, your typical Bible story.

Coming Soon:  Psalm – Chapter 58: For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” Of David. A miktam.

Psalm – Chapter 26: Of David.

The story of Absalom has concluded with his death, so it’s time to switch back to the book of Psalms, beginning with chapter 26.

“Vindicate me, Lord, for I have led a blameless life;” – Psalm 26:1

A blameless life, David?  Are you fucking kidding me?  You’ve murdered innocent people, allowed rape, and most likely raped your concubines and wives.  Blameless?  For fuck’s sake.

“I abhor the assembly of evildoers and refuse to sit with the wicked.” – Psalm 26:5

You may abhor wickedness in others, but you live off the evil in yourself.

“I lead a blameless life; deliver me and be merciful to me.” – Psalm 26:11

ROFL!

Wow!  What a load of bullshit from David!  Is he seriously arguing he leads a blameless life?  I suppose in the eyes of God he does, but in the much more moral eyes of humanity, David is as evil as they come.

Coming Soon:  Psalm – Chapter 40:  For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.
