Psalm 7 Bible Study
1. God protects the righteous
David know God protects the righteous and so he has been keeping God’s ways, now that his enemies pursue him, he now pleaded God to keep his promise and protect him. If you keep God’s commandments and serve him, God will protect you from your enemies. In Proverbs 2:8, he keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. In Psalm 97:10, ye that love the LORD, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked. In psalm 66:9, which holdeth our soul in life, and suffereth not our feet to be moved. In 1 Samuel 2:9, he will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail.
