171: Context!

Psalm 36-39
I will put a muzzle on my mouth as long as the wicked are in my presence. - Psalm 39:1 [All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing - Edmund Burke]

All Psalms written by David today.

Psalm 36: God's love is wonderful. Got it David, you really don't need to repeat it every few lines. David prays again that his enemies will die at the hands of God.

Psalm 37: Do good and God won't kill you (maybe). Of course, who knows what good is. God doesn't set a very good example.

Psalm 38: David pleads to God to not hurt him in his anger, or discipline him. Apparently God has shot David with arrows, afflicted him with skin diseases, and made his bones brittle. It's getting a little ridiculous that David switches back and fourth almost every chapter from God being wonderful to God almost killing him.

Psalm 39: David brags about how he is going to remain silent when the wicked are around. Maybe you should be saying "you are being wicked, God is going to kill you". But that might result in David's enemies not being killed, and we wouldn't want that.

*News*
I found an interesting video today as opposed to news. I'll find interesting news when I've had more than 4 hours of sleep.
