Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 31 - Morning

"Contend, Lord, with those who contend with me;
fight against those who fight against me.
Take up shield and armor;
arise and come to my aid.
Brandish spear and javelin
against those who pursue me.

Say to me,
'I am your salvation.' "

- Psalms 35:1-3

The Lord is the Champion in the Courtroom and on the Battle Field    

Psalm 35 is a royal psalm of the king who is seeking the Lord’s assistance both legally and militarily concerning international treaty violations. It appears a foreign power aligned with David through an international treaty is using false accusations to incite legal proceedings in hope of developing a military conflict with Israel.

Military language is used in verses 35:1-3, but reference to the inflammatory legal challenges by false witnesses creating false legal charges are found in 35:11:

“Ruthless witnesses come forward;
they question me on things I know nothing about.”

Even the Hebrew word in 35:1 for “contesters” (or, “those who contend”) is yerivim which is from the Hebrew word riv meaning “a legal disputation.”

“Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me;
fight against those who fight against me!”

David is asking for the Lord’s help in this international legal battle that has the potential of escalating into a war.

Besides being an expert in the courtroom, the Lord is also the champion on the battle field. He is described in 35:3 as:

  1. The one who steadies the shield carried by the soldier
  2. The one who steadies the buckler which is the large body shield carried by the armor bearer for the soldier.
  3. The one who unsheathes the spear for an offensive attack from a distance
  4. The one who unsheathes the sword for an offensive attack up close in hand-to-hand combat.
The phrase “I am your victory,” could be the oracle from the Lord that was received by the officiating priest. Thus, the king would have received confirmation of victory concerning the international treaty talks or assurance of victory in the case the peace negotiations failed and Israel was drawn into war. In the case of war the oracle "I am your victory" from the lips of the priest could have become the battle cry shouted by the soldiers in battle formation: “The Lord is our victory!”

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Yad (Hb) – Hand (Eng) – yad is the Hebrew word that means “hand,” “side,” “alongside.” Yad is used as “border” in 2 Chr.21:6, a “bank” of a river in Daniel 10:4, and “manhood” (or, the male sex organ) in Isaiah 57:8; 57:10; 6:2 and 7:20. The main use of Yad is to refer to the hand which is part of the human body. Yad is used to refer to power in 1 Samuel 23:7 and taking an oath in Genesis 14:22 and Proverbs 11:21. 


Critic of Intelligent Design: 
“I have my faith too but the difference is I don’t
subject you to it.”

Response: False. We are constantly subjected to atheistic and naturalistic explanations of our origins even though these explanations require a great deal of faith. Moreover, you impose your faith on others in a condescending and arrogant manner suggesting you are unaware of the assumptions on which your faith is based.
