24's President Logan was quoting a 'Psalm of David'

Gregory Itzin in AP photoYup. That's right.

The psalm that the assassination- and nerve gas-plotting former president was reciting aloud last night when he was alone in his bathroom, Psalm 40, is called "a Psalm of David," according to Bartleby.com.

Coincidence? Is it mere chance that former President Charles Logan -- who conspired to have David Palmer killed -- was quoting from a psalm that includes the name David, just before he left for the Russian consulate to supposedly gather intel about the whereabouts of three suitcase nukes? At the same time David's brother's assassination plot was being carried out?

Yes, the psalm, overall is about seeking redemption and deliverance from evil. In the HarperCollins Bible I have at home it's called, "Thanksgiving for Deliverance and Prayer for Help." However while reading the entire psalm, this excerpt leapt out at me:

"Let them be ashamed and confounded together that seek after my soul to destroy it; let them be driven backward and put to shame that wish me evil."

After reciting a different part of the psalm out loud while looking at himself in the mirror, Logan said, "One step at a time Charles. One step at a time."

Perhaps it's a clue from the 24 creators that all is not what it seems wit Logan's motivations? Or maybe it's just a red herring.
