To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, the servant of the Lord, who addressed the words of this song to the Lord on the day when the Lord rescued him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. He said: (Psalms 18:1-2)
With no enemies left what can life be? For David, love celebration.
I love you, O Lord, my strength.
There is no mention here of either sword or slingshot. God is powering him.
See how he thinks of God!
The Lord is
- my rock
- my fortress
- my deliverer
- my God,
- my rock, in whom I take refuge,
- my shield
- my salvation’s horn
- my stronghold.
