Psalm 109 has been a subject I’ve been thinking about lately. I may write a blog post about it one of these days.
In the meantime, I’ve been focusing on putting together a couple books, so I’m sorry for posting only sporadically these past few weeks. Please bear with me and pray with me as I continue in this writing journey for The Kingdom.
Those who know this psalm will have no doubt why it is not used in the three-year Lectionary. Those unfamiliar with it will understand upon reading it why it is included as one of my Forbidden Bible Verses.
The great 19th century English preacher Charles Spurgeon wrote:
… it cannot be conceived that this Psalm contains what one author has ventured to call “a pitiless hate, a refined and insatiable malignity.” To such a suggestion we cannot give place, no, not for an hour. But what else can we make of such strong language? Truly this is one of the hard places of Scripture, a passage which the soul trembles to read; yet as it is a Psalm unto God, and given by inspiration, it is not ours to sit in judgment upon it, but to bow our ear to what God the Lord would speak to us therein.
