I propose that post-mortal consciousness does not enter the consciousness of this verse--the author does not intend to give a discourse on the state of the soul in the afterlife. The context of Psalm 146 is a praise of the Lord and a contrast between His everlasting power and the temporary power of earthly rulers. The Best Laid Plans... As noted in other ...

We have the advantage of having all the N.T. scriptures to hand, whereas the people in Jesus' day 'only' had the Hebrew scriptures, and that was why Jesus quoted that part in the Psalms, to stop the religious leaders stoning him to death for blasphemy. You ask, "What am I missing?" but the real question should be, "What were those religious ...
