“On the basis of the unconditional Abrahamic covenant, David had a perfect right, as the representative of the nation, to pray that God would effect what He had promised—cursing on those who cursed or attacked Israel. David’s enemies were a great threat to the well-being of Israel!

“ An imprecatory psalm, then, is one in which the imprecation is a major element or leading feature of the psalm.” (Page 36)
