Psalm – Chapter 144: Of David.

More Psalms.  Today we look at chapter 144.

“He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me.” – Psalm 144:2

Who subdues people under me?  Or do you mean hardens the hearts of others thereby forcing them to be attacked by you?  Remember, if it wasn’t for God hardening the hearts of the Egyptians, NONE of this ever happens.

“Lord, what are human beings that you care for them, mere mortals that you think of them?” – Psalm 144:3

Well, for starters these mere mortals are more moral than God.

“Part your heavens, Lord, and come down; touch the mountains, so that they smoke.” – Psalm 144:5

Yes, please come down and show yourself.  I’m not being sarcastic when I say this.  If there is a god, then come down and prove yourself.  I’m not against a creator god, but there must be some evidence, and a god who creates could easily provide that evidence.

“From the deadly sword deliver me; rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful.” – Psalm 144:10-11

Verses such as this one are too commonly used today to discriminate and hate anyone who is not like them.  The only evidence in the Bible we have of ‘foreigners’ causing harm are those whose hearts were hardened by God.

“Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace. Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields; our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets.” – Psalm 144:12-14

For fuck’s sake, could the Bible possibly hate on foreigners more?  David is blaming all of his and his people’s will against those outside the borders.  Not that different from say, the current President of the U.S.  Maybe David should take a close inner look and realize that HE is the problem, not foreigners.

This concludes Psalm 144.  A lot of hate and anger directed at those outside the borders of the land David currently occupies.  This further shows the Bible is not a book of love.  It is a book that tries to teach you to hate anyone note like you.  The Bible is a book of hate.

Psalm – Chapter 143: A psalm of David.

In the last chapter of Psalms I discussed, it is made clear God watches EVERYTHING you do, but sits by and does nothing when rape, abuse, and molestation takes place.  Such a wonderful, loving God!  What will we learn in Psalm 143?  Let’s find out.

“Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness, come to my relief.” – Psalm 143:1

We learned in Psalm 139 that God watches and sees everything.  So why is David asking God to listen?  Of course God is listening.  You just said so in a previous chapter!  The bigger question is why God listens and then does nothing. Maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t exist!

“Answer me quickly, Lord; my spirit fails. Do not hide your face from me or I will be like those who go down to the pit.” – Psalm 143:7

Again, the most logical reason for God not answering is God doesn’t exist.  Or he’s an asshole.  You make the choice.  An asshole god or non-existent god?

“Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.” – Psalm 143:10

The Bible provides much evidence that God’s will often includes rape, murder, and slavery.  You want to be taught these things?

“In your unfailing love, silence my enemies; destroy all my foes, for I am your servant.” – Psalm 143:12

God’s unfailing love includes the destruction and silencing of others?  LOL!  The Bible is a book of morals?  That’s ridiculous.

Another chapter in Psalms where we see David describing God as this great and might being that loves everyone equally.  The rest of the Bible, however, shows the true nature of God.  God is evil, hateful, and everything BUT love.

Psalm – Chapter 139: For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

Our trek through Psalms continues today with a deep look at chapter 139.

“You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.” – Psalm 139:2

This is a polite way of David saying God watches him masturbate.  😊

“Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.” – Psalm 139:4

God knows when a child is about to be molested and yet does nothing.

“If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.” – Psalm 139:8

When I shoot my load, you are there.  Um…this god is a bit creepy!

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made,” – Psalm 139:14

Fearfully made?  What the hell?

“If only you, God, would slay the wicked!” – Psalm 139:19

Well, God does slay, but he saves his best slaying for innocent children.  See yesterday’s Crazy Bible Verse Tuesday post for a great example of this.

So what did we learn in this chapter?  God watches us constantly.  Yet he does nothing.  Think of the murders, the rapes, and the child molestation.  God sits and watches and does NOTHING.  This is an evil god.  Plain and simple.

Psalm – Chapter 138: Of David

Today we take a look at Psalm 138.  Let’s jump right in.

“…for your unfailing love and your faithfulness…” – Psalm 138:2

I’m amazed each time God’s unfailing love and faithfulness is mentioned in the Bible.  Seriously?  The Bible itself points to multiple instances of God NOT loving and not being faithful to his word.

“May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord, when they hear what you have decreed.” – Psalm 138:4

Sometimes God decrees the death of others.  I doubt those kings are going to praise God when he decrees their death.

“Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar.” – Psalm 138:6

God looks so kindly on the lowly that he does nothing to help them.

Psalms 138 doesn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know.  David praises God and claims God is the super duper best god in the world.  Yet the Bible itself tells us God does lie and God does not looking kindly on the lowly.  God is an evil asshole and multiple lines of evidence in the Bible support this.

Psalm – Chapter 10: Of David. A psalm.

By chapter numbers I’m about 75% of the way through the book of Psalms.  We should be done with this book sometime this year.  Light at the end of the tunnel!  😊

“The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind:” – Psalm 110:4

I’d be wary of any promises from God.  Remember, this is the asshole god who supposedly created humans and then killed all but seven in a worldwide flood.  So you tell me if you think he’s going to hold to his promise this time.

“He will drink from a brook along the way, and so he will lift his head high.” – Psalm 110:7

Killing and raping is hard work, so let’s forgive God this moment of weakness when he takes a drink from a babbling brook.  😊

That’s it for this short chapter in Psalms.

Coming Soon:  1 Chronicles – Chapter 23:  The Levites

Psalm – Chapter 109: For the director of music. Of David. A psalm.

Let’s continue our march through the book of Psalms today.

“With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause.” – Psalm 109:3

This is similar to a murderer being upset that the loved ones of the victim are mad.  Oh wait, this is the EXACT SAME THING as a murderer being upset that the loves ones of the victim are mad.  Sigh.

“Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy; let an accuser stand at his right hand.” – Psalm 109:6

Instead of a real solution, let’s commit more evil!

“May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.” – Psalm 109:10

Yes, let’s punish the innocent for the crimes of others.  SMH!

“May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.” – Psalm 109:12

Again, punishing those who committed no crime.

“May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.” – Psalm 109:13

This punishing of the innocent is getting old.  Why are the descendants out to many generations punished for the supposed crime of the ancestor?

“For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.” – Psalm 109:22

Sorry David.  You are neither poor nor needy.  You are one of the richest if not the richest person on the planet and have everything you need.  You are nothing more than a person who whines and complains a lot.

“My knees give way from fasting; my body is thin and gaunt.” – Psalm 109:24

Oh stop complaining!  You are CHOOSING to fast.  You have plenty of food.  If you are feeling unwell from fasting, then fucking eat something!!!

“I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads.” – Psalm 109:25

You’ve had their loved ones murdered.  What the fuck do you expect?

“Help me, Lord my God; save me according to your unfailing love.” – Psalm 109:26

So God will use his unfailing love to murder the innocent so you feel better?  Fuck both you and your fake god.

Ug.  What a disgusting chapter.  David keeps whining non-stop, arguing his ‘have everything life’ is leaving him poor and needy.  He’s a big cry baby.  This chapter also points again to God’s ever growing punishment on the descendants of those who supposedly commit a crime.  Many times no crime is committed, but if we assume one is, why does God and this ‘holy’ book insist on punishing the kids and grandkids?  This is not a just book and this is not a just god.

Coming Soon:  Psalm – Chapter 10:  Of David. A psalm.

Psalm – Chapter 108: A song. A psalm of David.

Believe it or not, there are not that many chapters of Psalms left I’ve yet to cover on this blog.  Still more than I like, but there’s a light at the end of this Psalms tunnel.

“For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.” – Psalm 108:4

You know the drill by this point.  Is God’s love really great if he demands you fear him as a form of love?

“Give us aid against the enemy, for human help is worthless.” – Psalm 108:12

Hmmm….I’d re-write this, based on evidence within the Bible itself, as “Fellow humans, give us aid against the enemy (God), for God’s help is worthless.”  It’s a much better match with the Bible than the actual verse.

This concludes Psalm 108.  Hang in there for a few more chapters.  Well, maybe a bit more than a few.  By my count there are 28 chapters in Psalms to go.  But that is getting close considering there are 150 chapters in Psalms.  Twenty eight is getting close!
