Psalms 106-110: 1 drink when it says mercy, 2 when it says destroy

Psalm 106

A continued summation of Exodus and Numbers. And if you were drinking along to this chapter, you'd have to take 5 shots (3 mercies, 1 destroy).

Psalm 107

Yet more lamenting the events of Exodus, in this case the wandering around in the desert for 40 years. Only 1 mercy in this one.

Psalm 108

This is a repeat of Psalm... something I cannot be bothered to look up, in which god delineates which nations are in favour and which ones aren't. It's exactly the same list as last time. 1 mercy.

Psalm 109

David's back, venting his spleen on his enemies: he wants them to be ruled by Satan, overthrown, his children turned into beggars, extorted by the mafia, his workers to strike, for his name to be forgotten and for all his curses to bounce of me and stick to you. Oddly, there are 3 mercies in this verse.

Psalm 110

When god decides to start speaking to us again, he'll kill so many heathens their bodies will pile up all over the place and he'll wound their leaders in the heads. It just tugs at my heartstrings.
