In Old Testament times, to eat and drink at someone’s table created a bond of loyalty. This scene is not simply of a host and a guest, but rather of two friends. The Psalmist David needed a loyal friend. He found this and more at the Lord’s table. Under God’s protection and power, he could feast in safety and security though surrounded by his enemies. One commentary wrote that this could also be interpreted as that of a victory feast, where David celebrated, as his defeated, unarmed enemies looked on. Regardless of the meaning, David’s enemies couldn’t harm him because the Lord was on his side. On this Grace Notes program, Barbara Sandbek will show how we, too, can feast comfortably in the middle of a crisis because of our relationship with Jesus Christ.
This program is already assigned to that list.
