Yahweh defeats my enemies (Ps 3:7-3:7)

“Arise, Yahweh!

Deliver me!

O my God!

You strike all my enemies on the cheek.

You break the teeth of the wicked.”

David wanted Yahweh to wake up and deliver him. He wanted Yahweh to strike all his enemies on the cheek. He wanted him to break the teeth of all the wicked. Once again there was no pause or break. David wanted Yahweh to intervene on his behalf in this internal Israelite family struggle with his son. The wicked and the enemies were not other countries, but his own family and countrymen.
