Episode 67: Psalms 73-89

Jordan and Luci tell you which Psalms to pick if you’re wishing harm on your enemies.

Check out this episode

  • Imprecatory psalms: the meanest of the psalms
  • In remarks made at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in June 2016, Senator David Perdue asked for prayers for President Obama, specifically using Psalm 109:8.
  • Songs!
  • Psalm 81 Sing joyfully, music composed by William Byrd
  • Psalm 87 Glorious things of thee are spoken, music composed by Joseph Haydn
  • Junk:
  • The tune by Joseph Haydn is indeed the same used for the German national anthem [“Das Deutschlandlied”] to this day. Since the end of the Second World War, only the third verse is used, which does not mention Deutschland über alles. Yet the connection and association remains.
  • The “Bridal Chorus”, commonly known as “Here Comes the Bride” or the “Wedding March” is from the opera Lohengrin by German composer Richard Wagner, who was an anti-semite. His works were appropriated by the Nazis.
  • A Taxonomy of Creeps by the Rev Catherine Healy
