Summary: David passes on the promise of God's protection to the reader, praying for victory and celebration of God's people. He also proclaims God's hand on their leader the king as the people trust in God rather than military might.
Response: My first reading felt very celebratory, but that ignores some parts and words that really give it an air of desperation. Lord, if I don't get Your help, I'm done for. Help me to hear Your word and follow Your plans.
