Catechesis Notes for the Week —Luther on Psalm 94 —“The 94th psalm of prayer that, by my understanding, cries out not against the heathen but against the kings and princes, priests, and prophets.  The psalmist calls them fools among the people, senseless ones who teach and rule the people foolishly and badly.  These are the ones who kill and persecute all the godly prophets and their disciples.  As the psalmist says, they presume upon God.  He has given them the power and has stood by and watched, not paying attention to those whom they slaughtered as condemned heretics and rebels.  Against these authorities, the psalmist prays, desiring help and support.  Although he finds no help, he takes comfort in his confidence that God’s Word and actions are reliable, and God will not allow the corrupt throne to come upon them but will repay them for their lies and murders.  Amen.”— Reading The Psalms With Luther
