The author of this psalm allegedly is David. If so, then it's

According to the psalmist, snails melt. But they don't, of course, they simply leave a slimy trail as they move
They [the heathen] make a noise like a dog .... Behold, they belch out with their mouths." These are good

God rides on the heavens of heavens, he sends out his mighty voice, his strength is in the clouds,
and he is terrible in his holy places. 68:33-35
"I made sackcloth also my garment; and I became a proverb to them." 69:11
"He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea."
See Numbers 11:20-32, where God sends quails to feed the Israelites until it literally came out their
"And he [God] smote his enemies in the hinder parts." (He kicked their ass.) 78:66
"I have said, Ye are gods." Jesus quotes this verse in John 10:34 to get out of a tough spot. (He was
claiming to be God for which the Jews accused him of blasphemy.) 82:6
"I will make mention of Rahab"
Rahab is a sea-demon or dragon from ancient Jewish folklore. 87:4

(1 Samuel 15:2-3)? 103:8

Proud people have hearts that are "fat as grease." 119:69-70

by night." So believers don't have to bother with sunscreen. God will protect them from
sunburn, and moonburn too. 121:5-6
"Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee."
Jews, Christians, and Muslims all love Jerusalem, and fight each other for the holy city, exclusively given to them by God. None of them prosper.
