I picked this Psalm because one of my favorite worship chorus in my high school years was based on this Psalm. But as I looked at this Psalm there is so much there.
This prayer is such great way to start one's day, though parts of it seem to be in conflict with what Jesus taught. For example verse
9 My enemies cannot speak a truthful word. Their deepest desire is to destroy others. Their talk is foul, like the stench from an open grave. Their tongues are filled with flattery.t10 O God, declare them guilty.
Let them be caught in their own traps. Drive them away because of their many sins,for they have rebelled against you.
Yet Jesus taught in Matthew 5 43“You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy. 44 But I say, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 In
that way, you will be acting as true children of your Father in heaven.
For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and he sends
rain on the just and the unjust alike.
