Enemies Everywhere: The Psalmist's Struggle for Survival
It is because of his faith in Yhwh. It is because of his torah centred life. He takes delight in the Law and meditates on it day and night (Psalm 1). It is because his vision of life is totally centred in God. God is everything to the Psalmist. And for those who do not know this God, they invariably belong to the other side, the side of evil labeled as sinners and sinners. They persecute the Psalmist because he is righteous and that the Psalmist's cause is just. The Psalmist's enemies are God's enemies and because of that God as the righteous judge will punish the evildoers and those who hate and persecute the righteous. After my presentation some 4 or 5 people came up and spoke with me. Even at night one Malaysian scholar over dinner thanked me for the paper. Praise be to God. I told my students back home even the Professors need Jesus Christ and God's truth.
