This Chapter in II Samuel is a song of praise from David’s heart when the Lord delivered him from the hand of all his enemies. Now David was Israel’s most famous king, considered to be the ideal ruler and prototype for the promised coming Messiah…he was called “a man after God’s own heart”…but he was also a man with many failings. Probably the worst being his sordid affair with Bathsheba and the wrongful death of her husband Uriah. But despite his shortcomings, David’s heart was steadfastly in the Lord’s hands. And as we read through this passage we can see the Lord’s faithfulness and deliverance on David’s behalf…starting with David praising God as his “savior”, followed by him pouring out his distress and petitioning God for relief…and finally to praising God for his personal rescue. We are all like David in a way…wanting to do the right thing, but still allowing sin to creep in occasionally. But Praise God, even when we are faithless, God is faithful and willing to deliver us from evil.
