King David: Blues Singer

Ever notice how many of the Psalms were written when the author was in anguish over life's terrific problems? The old addage, "you can't sing the blues unless you've lived the blues" applies here. Since the Psalms were all set to music, that would make King David (and maybe Asaph as backup vocals) a blues singer.

  1. The funkypresbyterian is preaching a series on depression and using these Psalms. Considering that the Psalms was Israel's hymn book, I love that that YHWH wants us to sing about these things corporately.
