Psalms Part 72 of 150
1 God, give the king your justice;
your righteousness to the royal son.
2 He will judge your people with righteousness,
and your poor with justice.
This speaks volumes. The poor have to be listed separately from ‘his people’.
3 The mountains shall bring prosperity to the people.
Mountains ‘do’ nothing.
The hills bring the fruit of righteousness.
Hills ‘do’ nothing.
4 He will judge the poor of the people.
You already said that.
He will save the children of the needy,
and will break the oppressor in pieces.
Hasn’t always happened.
5 They shall fear you while the sun endures;
Why is fear such a necessary part of Christianity?
and as long as the moon, throughout all generations.
6 He will come down like rain on the mown grass,
as showers that water the earth.
7 In his days, the righteous shall flourish,
and abundance of peace, until the moon is no more.
You died before the moon, so you haven’t kept your word. Not surprising. This is the bible after all.
8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea,
from the River to the ends of the earth.
You didn’t even know how big the earth was then. You still thought it was flat. Fricking moron.
9 Those who dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him.
His enemies shall lick the dust.
Why not talk of compassion and peace with your enemies. Make them enemies no more?
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the islands will bring tribute.
The kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
11 Yes, all kings shall fall down before him.
All nations shall serve him.
You don’t even know about all the nations.
12 For he will deliver the needy when he cries;
the poor, who has no helper.
13 He will have pity on the poor and needy.
He will save the souls of the needy.
14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence.
Their blood will be precious in his sight.
If that were possible, then it could have and should have happened a lot earlier. In fact, there should be no needy people. So why does he want needy people?
15 They shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba.
Men shall pray for him continually.
They shall bless him all day long.
That would make it hard to work and look after your family. But why would Gawd care. As long as he gets loved, he doesn’t care about humanity.
16 Abundance of grain shall be throughout the land.
Its fruit sways like Lebanon.
Let it flourish, thriving like the grass of the field.
He could make that happen at any time. He could have made it that way from the very beginning, so ask your Gawd why he allows so much suffering? Why does he create poor, needy, malnourished children?
17 His name endures forever.
His name continues as long as the sun.
Men shall be blessed by him.
All nations will call him blessed.
Nope. Hasn’t and won’t happen.
18 Praise be to Yahweh God, the God of Israel,
who alone does marvelous deeds.
19 Blessed be his glorious name forever!
Let the whole earth be filled with his glory!
Amen and amen.
20 This ends the prayers by David, the son of Jesse.
Well that’s good, but this one wasn’t David’s. It was Solomon’s. Or is the first line the lie?
