let Him save him, for He is pleased with him: Those who scorn David will not help him. David was born in sin the iniquity of having a mother who was not of the tribes of Israel and he does not have the support of anyone that believe he is G-d’s anointed King. Even his family who were present when Samuel anointed David according to the words of the L-rd to Samuel. Words only Samuel could hear. They are the haters and naysayers and enemies of David who ignore David and shame him for his being “said to be” anointed by G-d. Most, if not all do not believe G-d spoke to Samuel in his anointment of David and that David is not G-d’s anointed King.
They mockingly say if David is really G-d’s anointed King let G-d save him from his troubles. They do not know that G-d works through men and expects them to save David. G-d does not use a magic wand in creation. He moves through men. More often than not they disappoint Him. If G-d used His power and not men in the natural order of humanity and creation all of His prophets and anointed men would have been heeded and obeyed. That has never been the case.
Creation is for G-d first and man second. Always. It is exactly and perfectly what He wanted it to be. Using His power to make others believe David is His anointed King would never happen. G-d does not change the will of men in His power except with His prophets and anointed and then it is in conjunction with chastisement and punishment. They know the reasons for their suffering.
G-d always lets men show who they are even though He already knows who will “surprise” Him and who will “disappoint” Him. G-d loves a testimony for others to see. He has absolute knowledge of all things and already knows what each man will and will not do.
It is nothing for G-d to change men and the world if He so chooses. The challenge for G-d is to take a man and through him achieve His purpose. And His purpose in all that He does is always multiple. It is the scripture itself that is the sword G-d has His anointed and prophets use against their enemies. G-d’s power and control of creation is through His words written in the Jewish Bible. His prophecy and His commands are written with more purposes than man can conceive. And they are written at His direction with more creativity than can be imagined.
1For the leader; on ayyeleth ha-shahar. A psalm of David.
ayyeleth ha-shahar: The earliest part of the dawn before the light. An instrument played in the Temple.
2My God, my God,
why have You abandoned me;
why so far from delivering me
and from my anguished roaring?
why so far from delivering me and from my anguished roaring: In the stories of David there are many times he would have said the words of this song. When he was fleeing from Saul and his men and hiding in the desert, fighting the Philistines and his exile in Philistine lands with Akish as his master.
I cry by day—You answer not;
by night, and have no respite.
4But You are the Holy One,
the Praise of Israel.
5In You our fathers trusted;
they trusted, and You rescued them.
6To You they cried…
