Over the past few days, a Biblical verse has reportedly topped the google trends charts. It is also turning up in bumper stickers and tee shirts across the country. It reads:
“Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8”
But what do you see when you look up that Psalm?
“May his days be few; may another take his office.”
But take a look at the whole psalm, especially the lines immediately after this one — lines the original framer of this sticker — and many others after him/her could not have failed to miss:
9 May his children be fatherless
and his wife a widow.
10 May his children be wandering beggars;
may they be driven from their ruined homes.
