David sure does have some strong prayers for his enemies.
Psalm 55:15 Let death stalk my enemies; let the grave swallow them alive
Psalm 58:6 Break off their fangs, O God! Smash the jaws of these lions, O Lord!
Psalm 58:8 May they be like snails that dissolve into slime, like a stillborn child who will never see the sun.
It doesn’t have the ring of “love your enemies”. Do you think David is right in these prayers or has something changed in the area of how we are to treat our enemies?
