Default Day 156. Psalm 6-10 - 08-21-2008, 05:30 PM

Psalm 6-10

Psalm 6

1 O LORD, rebuke me not in thine anger, neither chasten me in thy hot displeasure.

Angry God is a dangerous God. Don't drive angry... don't drive angry.

Road rage is nothing compared to God Rage (just ask those people in the tsunami).

6 I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears.

This sounds like it's a psalm of begging.

9 The LORD hath heard my supplication; the LORD will receive my prayer.

The LORD will give me a pony.

10 Let all mine enemies be ashamed and sore vexed: let them return and be ashamed suddenly.

hmmm... if being ashamed is the worst thing this psalmist can think of, then I don't think I'd mind being on his enemies list.

Psalm 7

1 O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:

Remember, most of the psalms were written by David. We don't know exactly when David came up with these, but you can probably guess when they were. David's life timeline can be broken down into several series.

1. Shepherd up to Goliath
2. Goliath up to being run out by Saul
3. Fighting Saul
4. King

With the tone of this one, you'd almost have to think it was written when he was on the run from Saul. So David is probably sitting around the campfire with his band of merry men, singing country and western style psalms, bemoaning the fact that he's hated by the king.

4 If I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me; (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy: )

Sounds like he's talking about Saul there, doesn't it.

8 The LORD shall judge the people: judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, and according to mine integrity that is in me.

That's definitely David, talking about David.

16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

Talking about Saul again.

Psalm 8

1 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.

This one sounds like it's a psalm David would have sung when he was the harpist in Saul's court. David sitting there, strumming his little harp, singing a song about how great God is, and then Saul is all nice and comfy, saying, "David sing me a song" and David's like "ok, here's one I wrote about how great God is". Then when David finished, and everyone clapped, it pissed off Saul, so he throws a spear at David.

4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Is this a dig at the king?

6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:

David again, is full of himself.

9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!

Damn right!

Psalm 9

1 I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Ah, another God is Great psalm.

5 Thou hast rebuked the heathen, thou hast destroyed the wicked, thou hast put out their name for ever and ever.

It's turning into a heathen bashing psalm though.

6 O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end: and thou hast destroyed cities; their memorial is perished with them.

Them Hebe's, they sure do like to call other people things, but if you call a Jew something bad; you are an anti-semite and your name will wind up scribbled on the bathroom wall of the National Holocaust Museum.

13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:

Ah, the final thing that the Jews have... they are hated, but they have God on their side (or did) nothing is better than the satisfaction of knowing that your enemies are going to hell.

15 The heathen are sunk down in the pit that they made: in the net which they hid is their own foot taken.

Let's just say "Muslim" instead of heathen.

16 The LORD is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. Higgaion. Selah.

There's another Selah. Cymbal Crash. But what's a Higgaion?

Higgaion is like an singing pause, instrument solo. So David's probably singing to Saul, he finishes the line "of his own hands" and then busts into a kick-ass harp solo! (followed by a cymbal crash)

17 The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever.


This one is a deathmetal psalm!

The wicked shall be turned to hell *chunka-chunka-chunka*
and ALL (sung like David Lee Roth) the nations that forget God. *chunka-chunka-chunka*
For the needy shall not always be forgotten *chunk-chunk-chunk*
the expecation of the poor... i said the expectation of the poor... that's right the expectation of the poor ... shall not perish for ever *ba-dow-dow-dow------dow-dunk*

20 Put them in fear, O LORD: that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah.

Awwwright!

Psalm 10

1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble?

I'd bet this one is when David is being chased by Saul. It has the, "woe is me" feel to it, already.

3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth.

So, in David's life, when was he in trouble? He led a very charmed life, except for the time being chased by Saul.

4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.


That's David's opinion. But then, it's easy to say that your enemy hates God. (I know all my enemies do).

7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity.

Maybe this one was written after beating Goliath. It sounds almost like he's describing Goliath. If so, David probably sang this in the king's courtyard, then later when they were on the run, one of his guys was like... hey sing the one about Goliath... and then after a little too much wine, one of the guys was like... "you know, that sounds a lot like Saul". And they were like... "yeahhhhh".

12 Arise, O LORD; O God, lift up thine hand: forget not the humble.

Look at me, I'm humble.

16 The LORD is King for ever and ever: the heathen are perished out of his land.

Heathen... muslim.

18 To judge the fatherless and the oppressed, that the man of the earth may no more oppress.


By the way, guys: rhyming "Homer" with "homer"? [kisses fingers]

So what have we learned today?

1. David sure did know how to whine. Oh yeah, he's a JEW!

2. God punishes heathens.

3. God is good, at least when He's paying attention.

Yep, Psalm 7 is about Saul. The title of it is "Shiggaion of David, which he sang unto the LORD, concerning the words of Cush the Benjamite." A shiggaion is a Hebrew "rambling poem", and Cush the Benjamite was one of Saul's courtiers, who accused David of trying to usurp the throne.

But Psalm 7 isn't just about Saul. There's a lesson in here for all unrepentant sinners:

Ps 7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.

Despite what the purveyors of the so-called "self-esteem" gospel, God doesn't accept us for who we are. God is angry with the wicked every day. All unrepentant sinners are wicked. (Rom 3:23)

Ps 7:12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready.
Ps 7:13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death; he ordaineth his arrows against the persecutors.

God is lying in wait, ready to smite unrepentant sinners at any time.

Ps 7:15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.
Ps 7:16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate.

The wicked often end up orchestrating their own doom, such as when Saul fell on his own sword or when Haman was hung on the gallows he built for Mordecai.

Psalm 10 almost sounds like David is questioning God's judgment. David has noticed that wicked people seem to be able to act with impunity. He sees people who believe they can get away with their evil doings because God doesn't care, and he doesn't see God proving them wrong. David says to God...

Ps 10:14 Thou hast seen it; for thou beholdest mischief and spite, to requite it with thy hand: the poor committeth himself unto thee; thou art the helper of the fatherless.
Ps 10:15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: seek out his wickedness till thou find none.

I know you see them, so why don't you do something about it?

I said that it "almost" sounds like David is questioning God's judgment, because in verse 17, he affirms his faith that the Lord will eventually get around to giving the heathens their due, whenever He is good and ready.

Ps 10:17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:

So yeah, God, whenever you get around to causing your ear to hear the plight of people in need, it would be great if you could help. No rush or anything.

Upon request I will cite scripture for all these facts in God's Holy Word.
