David Has a Lot of Enemies
Either David had a lot of enemies or he sure fixated on the ones that he had. As we have already seen, David writes a lot about God’s deliverance from his enemies. In that day I’m sure a king had a lot of enemies and so I guess this is to be expected but I admit to suffering a little “enemy fatigue” as I read Psalm 70. In this psalm David asks God to deliver him and to help him. He asks God to intervene on his behalf against those who seek his life and who seek to harm him. There’s nothing new here; just a repetition and reminder that God is the One who fights our battles and He is the One we should turn to for help.
