Blogging - Old Skool


The Story
David had done nothing wrong.
He was running for his life.
He went to the priest, and asked for something to eat. The priest gave him the holy bread, and Goliath's sword.
One of the king's officials happened to be there. He accused the innocent priest of aiding and abetting the enemy. Saul had the priest killed, plus 85 other priests. David was furious!

The Blog
So David worshipped, and fumed, and prayed.
And wrote down his jumbled thoughts.
Here they are - blogging old skool...

A David Psalm, When Doeg the Edomite Reported to Saul, "David's at Ahimelech's House"

1 -4 Why do you brag of evil, "Big Man"?
God's mercy carries the day.
You scheme catastrophe;
your tongue cuts razor-sharp,
artisan in lies.
You love evil more than good,
you call black white.
You love malicious gossip,
you foul-mouth.
5 God will tear you limb from limb,
sweep you up and throw you out,
Pull you up by the roots
from the land of life.
6 -7 Good people will watch and
worship. They'll laugh in relief:
"Big Man bet on the wrong horse,
trusted in big money,
made his living from catastrophe."
8 And I'm an olive tree,
growing green in God's house.
I trusted in the generous mercy
of God then and now.
9 I thank you always
that you went into action.
And I'll stay right here,
your good name my hope,
in company with your faithful friends. (Psalm 52)
