“Protector from the Swords”

April 25, 2018

 

Psalm 59: 7, 12: “Behold, they belch forth with their mouth; swords are in their lips … On account of the sin of their mouths and the words of their lips, let them even be caught in their pride.”  This psalm could have just as well been written by Paul as well as David.  As seen yesterday and throughout the book of Acts, he was hounded from city to city by those with swords on their lips, yet he nonetheless knew that the Lord was his stronghold, and a refuge in the day of his distress (v. 16).  And in the end, who prevailed – St. Paul and his efforts to propagate the Gospel, or his enemies and their drive to quench it?
