    Meditation on Psalm 59:1-17

    You are my refuge in times of trouble!

    Psalm 59 is an unusual prayer for help, asking God to scatter the wicked and defeat their designs. The wicked are described as blood thirsty, liars, arrogant who use twisted words [fake news], malignant propaganda and curses to bring down the vulnerable, lovers of God’s instructions. The wicked do not care for God’s
    commandments or for a world of justice, peace and co-existence between nations. Psalmist in his anguish prays to ‘show no mercy’ to the wicked [this is apparently
    contrary to the teaching of Jesus who said: love your enemies]! Perhaps, psalmist meant that if the wicked do not change their ways, they are good to be doomed. Psalmist adds, ‘do not kill’ the wicked; he is not asking for capital punishment for those who are violent, but scatter them; let them wander about and come to their senses that God alone is supreme above all creation!
