The haters (Ps 69:4-69:5)

“More in number

Than the hairs of my head

Are those who hate me without cause.

Mighty are those who would destroy me.

My enemies accuse me falsely.

What did I not steal?

Must I now restore them?

O God!

You know my folly!

The wrongs I have done

Are not hidden from you.”

The numerous haters of David did so without cause. Apparently David believed that it was okay to hate with a good cause. These haters were more than the hairs on David’s head. His enemies wanted to destroy him. They made false accusations against him. There is something about stealing stuff that he needed to restore. He must have done something because he confesses his folly. God knows the various wrongs that he has done since they are not hidden from him.
