Humour in the Psalms

Tim at 5 Minute Bible has posted a reading of Psalm 94 under the subject Humour in the Bible. I am honoured that he included part of an email summary I sent him. I regret that I couldn't take part in the aural presentation, but time did not allow it this week.

In his reading, listen for the gaps and change of voice. How does one answer the question about the wicked that he ends with? I think the poet realizes that the problem is not a simple one that the "divisions within me" (verse 19) implicate the elect with the wicked.

Now back to seeing the psalms though it's lovely to hear them read in Tim's inimitable voice after the trumpet sounds.
