An Indictment from One Answer to That Question from That Psalm

June 15, 2016

How long, O Lord? asks Psalm 13:1 in the New International Version.

Long enough, God, declares The Message Version.

How long wilt Thou forget me, O Lord? For ever?  wonders the 21st Century King James Version.

How much longer, Lord? Will it be forever? How long will you hide? demands the Contemporary English Version.

…And the reply comes back, Let me ask you the same question.

Silence.

How many more times are you gonna hit your snooze button?

  1. OUCH! My reaction to my first thought in reading this — “Don’t I have to hear it to hit snooze?” Could that be happening?
