Psalm 83: God can’t be all powerful if he failed to pick a winning team with these guys.
Psalms Part 83 of 150
A song. A Psalm by Asaph.
1 God, don’t keep silent.
Don’t keep silent,
and don’t be still, God.
He’s the boss and you tell him what to do?
2 For, behold, your enemies are stirred up.
Those who hate you have lifted up their heads.
The statement that they hate God most probably isn’t true. It’s the same these days when the religious keep rabbiting on about atheists hating Gawd. We don’t and can’t hate something that we don’t believe exists. It’s about time you guys showed some kind of intelligence and got that simple fact into your heads.
3 They conspire with cunning against your people.
They plot against your cherished ones.
As you guys did when you attacked them. Fairness can be a real bitch sometimes, can’t it!!!
4 “Come,” they say, “let’s destroy them as a nation,
that the name of Israel may be remembered no more.”
Considering how many nations Israel destroyed on their way, what do you expect?
5 For they have conspired together with one mind.
They form an alliance against you.
That would be good thinking when they have you around.
6 The tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites;
Moab, and the Hagrites;
7 Gebal, Ammon, and Amalek;
Philistia with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assyria also is joined with them.
They have helped the children of Lot.
9 Do to them as you did to Midian,
as to Sisera, as to Jabin, at the river Kishon;
10 who perished at Endor,
who became as dung for the earth.
See!! You guys did that crap to those, so don’t go expecting this lot to sit still and let you do it to them as well.
11 Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb;
yes, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmunna;
12 who said, “Let us take possession of God’s pasture lands.”
They aren’t God’s pasture lands. They belonged to somebody else till you guys came along, murdered the owners and stole the land.
13 My God, make them like tumbleweed;
like chaff before the wind.
It would have been simpler and caused lot less loss of life if he had have just killed you guys off in the beginning. Everyone else could have lived a lot safer lives without you storming across the land laying waste to anything that moved.
14 As the fire that burns the forest,
as the flame that sets the mountains on fire,
15 so pursue them with your tempest,
and terrify them with your storm.
16 Fill their faces with confusion,
that they may seek your name, Yahweh.
17 Let them be disappointed and dismayed forever.
Yes, let them be confounded and perish;
18 that they may know that you alone, whose name is Yahweh,
are the Most High over all the earth.
That is quite a freaking stupid thing to say. You want them to perish, but to know God did it to them? They can’t know it if it hasn’t happened, and by the time it has happened, they would be dead. No wonder people look on the religious as a bunch of halfwits. Take a little time to think about what you are saying before opening your mouths. It would help a lot.
