Psalms 57-62

(November 4, 2014)

                There are signs all around at what a wonderful, Christ-like man David was – but, sadly, the signs of his destruction are all around as well.  I was stung by his words to the Lord “be not merciful to any wicked transgressors.”  I don’t know when he said this, but I assume that it was before his sin with Bathsheba.  Either way, his desire for the Lord to smite those he opposed who were transgressors established the standard that he was ultimately destroyed with – he spent his life thereafter seeking mercy for his wicked transgressions (unsuccessfully).
