12 If anyone will not repent, he will sharpen his sword; he has strung his bow and made it ready. 13 He has readied his deadly weapons; he tips his arrows with fire.
The psalmist feels like his enemies have assumed that God is all talk and no action. But he sees God as a warrior ready for battle— a sniper in position for a kill shot.
Lord, restore to us an awareness of your readiness to punish wrongdoing.
