War Between the Houses of David and Saul by Gustav Doré
-Helkathhazzurim (Field of Daggers) 2 Samuel 2:8-17
In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
What shall be given unto you? or what shall be done unto you, you false tongue?
Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
Woe is me, that I sojourn in Meshech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
My soul has long dwelt with him that hates peace.
I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
This is why it is said that vengeance belongs to God. Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, says the Lord. We don't have to worry when an enemy does us a bad turn. Justice belongs to God and He makes all just. We just have to leave it in His hands like David sang.
