wild city dogs

Psalm 59:14-15 (JDV)

Psalm 59:14 And they return at evening, in uproar like dogs and prowling around the city.
Psalm 59:15 They scavenge for food; they growl if they are not satisfied.

wild city dogs

I used to keep a box of rocks at my doorstep. When I lived in an Asian city, a pack of wild dogs would come barking, growling and causing uproar every night. I kept the rocks handy to discourage them from staying near my house and disturbing my sleep. It didn’t work so well, because I still had to get up to throw the rocks.

Apparently the psalmist knew about this problem, and he told God that his enemies were acting like wild city dogs.

Lord, keep our enemies away. Give us peace.
