The threads which are scattered all over this board about the demise of Osama got me thinking about one of my favorite Psalms and this particular passage: Psalm 139 (KJV) 19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men. 20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain. 21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee? 22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies. 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: 24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. The way I understand this passage, is that God's enemies our also our enemies, David was referring to the blood thirsty men of his day, men like Hitler, Osama, Hussein, etc. that we have seen in the past 100 years. But he also ends the Psalm by saying that he realizes he too falls short before a Holy God, and he needs the Lord's forgiveness. Hate is a pretty strong word, it doesn't fit in well with our "touchy feely" society, what are your thoughts on this passage?
