David is concerned with the glory and honor of God, more than his personal safety. This reveals David’s heart and passion for God. David’s prayer against his enemies is NOT in contradiction to Yeshua’s command to love our enemy. The issue is God’s reputation. We are to pray and love those who hate us unto their salvation, and trust God to bring justice.
Do not slay them, lest my people forget; scatter them by Your power, and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride, and for the cursing and lying which they speak.
Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be; and let them know that God rules in Jacob to the ends of the earth. Selah
