The Psalms: God's Mix Tape Part 2 ... Side B?

Ok, I mentioned in my last blog that the Psalm express emotions even "hit-him-again" anger. Before you string me up for thinking that the Bible could NEVER portray images other than fluffy clouds and little bunnies giggling in the grass I offer Psalm 3:7

7 Arise, O LORD!
Deliver me, O my God!
Strike all my enemies on the jaw;
break the teeth of the wicked.

Nothing is more fun that for a guy to watch a movie where the enemy gets his "just desserts." People like to see the enemy take a fall and cheer on the hero. For those who think God doesn't have that side to him doesn't know how hardcore he really can be and should read that one part where he strikes down everyone with the words of his mouth... and yes, that's in the New Testament.
