Fools do not understand (Ps 94:8-94:11)


O dullest of the people!


When will you be wise?

He who planted the ear,

Does he not hear?

He who formed the eye,

Does he not see?

He who disciplines the nations,

Does he not chastise?

He who teaches men knowledge,

Does he not chastise?

Yahweh knows our thoughts.

Our thoughts are but an empty breath.”

The psalmist believes that the fools do not understand. He reminded them that they will have to have wisdom. Since God planted the ear and eye, he can certainly see and hear. As God has disciplined and thought all the nations, he can certainly chastise people. Yahweh knows everything since our thoughts are like an empty breath.
