  1. You don’t need to temper the psalms. Maybe you need to temper your reading of them. Rather I think, temper certainty of confession with the psalms. (Nonetheless, I do think that targeted removal of certain threats is a lesser evil than many other alternatives. But we seem to have taken the other alternatives to our detriment first.) The gospel is in the psalms for any who care to see. And the Christian certitude that has ruled many generations is a failure – “they do not know my ways”, (Psalm 95 I’m sure you recognize it)

    1. Very true, and my words may be better chosen. some take the psalms as a license to hate, and that is my concern.

      Equally, i would be interested in your opinion of the exegesis of Songs. Brief – and not by my choice
