Psalms 111-115: The home stretch

Psalm 111

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom (v. 10) I like my deities a little more upbeat, thanks.

Psalm 112

Some details about what good fearing god does you: you'll have children who will become mighty upon earth (v. 2), you'll be rich, gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. (v. 4). You'll use good judgement, you'll be remembered forever, you'll never have to fear, your um, horn, will be blessed, your enemies will be destroyed. It's like having a fairy godmother!

Psalm 113

God elevates the poor to royal stations and makes infertile women fecund.

Psalm 114

A reminder to nature that it should also fear god.

Psalm 115

My god is better than your god! Why? Because my god is in the sky and your god is just some stinky idol made out of precious metal! Yours may have sensory organs, but he has no senses, just like you! Na-na-na boo-boo!
