Begin study:


David continues with his plea in prayer to God. If I have done evil, provoked in some way, conducted myself or led into conduct by some action or inaction of mine, and caused another person to come into harms way.

And yet, David continues, on the contrary, quite the opposite has occurred.

On the contrary, I have delivered, protected, looked after the best interest, of one who is my enemy, but should not be my enemy. And the enemy of mine is my enemy through no reason or action of mine, but through their own actions.

Saul, is the most likely candidate object, of this psalm, since it was he who pursued David out of arrogance and jealousy. David had done nothing, but was chosen by God. Whereas Saul was not chosen by God, but chosen by his popularity with the people.

And yet popularity with humanity is not a basis nor qualification for ones place in this world.

Saul was popular and was elected king. David spent his time with the sheep and his scriptures.

Saul had worldly qualities. David had divine qualities.

David chose God. Saul chose the approbation of people. God chose David. God rejected Saul. Saul rejected God first.

There are but two opinions in this life, that of God and that of the world. The world bases its opinions on imagination, on lies, on false concepts. The opinions of the world are in error, because it lacks detailed truth. The world lacks detailed truth because it ignores truth, rejects truth, and does not make an effort to learn it.

And therefore the world, the philosophies of the world will oppose anyone who pursues truth, will manifest accusations against believers, although the accusations are wrong. And even if the accusations were true, the world has no right to assault or attack anyone for any reason. Judgment belongs to God.

This excludes legitimate accusations by means of legal due process, complete with truthful testimony, evidence, etc. Legal due process is a component of the divine establishments designed by God.

Therefore you can side with God, through your daily studies and learn truth and correct discernment about life, or you can side with the world, and become an accuser, a complainer, an excuse artist for everything that you fail at.

For it is God who controls history, not you. And it is God who possesses control over your life, regardless of your circumstances, while you have no right or place, to accuse or complain or blame anyone else, for any reason.



End of study





Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
