Upwards of 2,000,000 people marched in protest on the mall in Washington DC. They were protesting Obama's health care and general fiscal irresponsibility.
1Sing to Yahvah a new song; sing to Yahvah, all the land.
2Sing to Yahvah, bless his name; show forth his salvation from day to day.
3Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.
4For Yahvah is great and greatly to be praised; he is to be revered above all gods.
5For all the gods of the nations are idols; but Yahvah made the skies.
6Honor and majesty are before him; strength and beauty are in his sanctuary.
7Give to Yahvah, relatives of the people, give to Yahvah glory and honor.
8Give to Yahvah the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts.
9Worship Yahvah in the house of holiness; tremble before him, all the land.
10Say among the Gentiles, that Yahvah reigns; the world will also be established, that it will not be moved; he will judge the people righteously.
11Let the skies rejoice, and let the land be glad; let the sea roar and its fullness.
12Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it; then, all the trees of the forest will rejoice
13before Yahvah; for he comes, for he comes to judge the land; he will judge the world with righteousness, and the people with his truth.
Washington DC police were surprised with the large turnout of people protesting Barack Obama's irresponsible use of funds and his cram-down on health care.
Most main stream media reported protesters in the thousands or 10s of thousand. The Daily Mail estimated upwards of 2,000,000 though they were not located in the mall proper, but along Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House nearly to the Capital.
President Obama was strategically out of town, visiting a venue in Minnesota to give a speech in support of his health plan.
The general tone of this Psalm is about an assembly called on God's behalf. Generally speaking the protesters were right-wing, calling for fiscal responsibility and an end to the graft. Nearly everything Obama has stood for was protested in one way or another.
The theoretical time for this Psalm is at about 1:00 AM in Washington DC, about the time the earliest protesters were arriving on the mall. There were so many unexpected people that the formal speeches began a reported 1.5 hours early, pushing towards the theoretical time. Because the theoretical time was a night, the fulfillment in the morning is a match.
Verse 3 says to declare is glory among the heathen, and in this Psalm the crowds were generally protesting against the heathen practices of the Obama administration and of the Democratically controlled congress. What better way to demonstrate this to all the people than with a demonstration before the people in the nation's back yard.
Verse 5 discusses how the gods of the nation(s) are idols, and by this Obama is implicated as the current idol of the nation. It continues and says that God made the skies, which is where Obama was this day, on a presidential 747 ride to Minnesota.
Verse 6 continues the thought and says that honor and majesty are before him. Of note Obama is missing from these crowds and likely not honored nor considered majestic by the standards of this Psalm. This verse also says that strength and beauty are in his sanctuary, and the numbers along represent his strength, and are apparently considered beautiful to him.
Verse 7 calls for the people to give God honor and glory, which this march on Washington did by calling for righteousness in government.
Verse 8 calls this an assembly in his courts, indicating that this form of protest is to him a form of worship. Verse 9 continues the thought and says the land will tremble. The implication is that this will cause changes in the government.
Verse 10 discusses God's ongoing reign and his judgement. The crowds in these marches are calling for the same thing God would call for if he were standing there in the flesh.
Verse 11 contains a reference to the "seas" which is a biblical metaphor for many, many people, a close match to the events this day.
Verse 12 calls for rejoicing in the land, and amongst the trees, a match to the venue for this demonstration.
Verse 13 says that God himself will judge, and presumably will grant the protesters their desires.
