Psalm 124 -- Speaking of Enemies

Patricia K. Tull
A. B. Rhodes Professor of Old Testament

September 25, 2009
Psalm 124

Psalm 124 tells us something wonderful about God’s tender care in a violent world. Being Christians should mean we can face our sins more honestly than we otherwise might. But has professing Christianity freed us from the inclination to act and speak in anger and hatred? No matter how overwhelming hatred may be, God’s love is greater still. Listen to the sermon.
