Psalms of the Salter: Some Thoughts on Really Living for the Lord (Psalm 53)

23 Oct

Psalm 53

For the director of music. According to mahalath. A maskil of David.

1 The fool says in his heart,Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 7.12.08 AM
    “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
    there is no one who does good.

God looks down from heaven
    on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
    any who seek God.
Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
    there is no one who does good,
    not even one.

Do all these evildoers know nothing?

They devour my people as though eating bread;
    they never call on God.
But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
    where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
    you put them to shame, for God despised them.

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
    When God restores his people,
    let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

    Larry, this is pure stupidity. If you want to not be called a moron for indulging in such idiotic contumely, then don’t tag your wordpress posts with “atheism.”

    Thank you for your comment, my friend. Do you mind my asking why you are reacting so strongly to my Christian post? The Psalm obviously touches on the issue of atheism, no? Blessings. Larry (By the way, I had to look up “contumely.” My post was certainly not meant as a humiliating insult. I apologize if you took it that way).
