Psalm 59

Summary: David compares his enemies to a pack of wild dogs and more or less asks God to put them down.

Response: I briefly considered not posting about this one today. Still, I want to work through this, even though I've done it before. Yes, I get that David's life was literally at stake, that he is really faithful to God and that his enemies are really bad guys. But it's hard to reconcile a kill-'em-all mindset with a Jesus I know that, when His enemies threatened to kill Him, literally died and took their sin with Him. Compared to that, David's pleas for his versions of justice or revenge just seem unloving.
