And David calls for their swift destruction: their teeth are broken, vanish, swept away like a snail, and defeated by the Lord Himself in vengeance. It’s interesting to hear some pretty tough words from David about their destruction and death. I think we’ve softened the understanding of the holiness and just nature of God. God is the God of war, the one who breaks the bow and shield, and the God that says, “vengeance is mine” (Deut 32:35, Rom 12:19). Vengeance is a holy thing that belongs to God, and that’s part of God’s perfect justice. David leaves the justice to God.
