Daily Bible Podcast Day 129 – 2 Samuel 17, Psalm 71, Matthew 26

March 9, 2013 in Podcasts


“Do not be far from me, my God;
come quickly, God, to help me.
May my accusers perish in shame;
may those who want to harm me
be covered with scorn and disgrace.

As for me, I will always have hope;
I will praise you more and more.

My mouth will tell of your righteous deeds,
of your saving acts all day long—
though I know not how to relate them all.” ~Psalm 71:12-15

David’s accusers are those trying to remove him from power. They are people who oppose his kingship over Israel.

My only accuser (that I know of) is Satan. He doesn’t oppose me in a political sense, but he does want to see that God’s power doesn’t have an effect in my life.

God, come quickly to save me from my accuser. Help me to resist him and always keep Your praise in my words. Like David, I don’t know how to tell the things you have done, but I will do my best. I hope in you, God, help me.
