“Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.” (Psalms 119:157) (KJV)

Many are my persecutors and mine enemies:

[su_pullquote align=”left”] The disciple cannot be loved where his Master is hated. The seed of the serpent must oppose the seed of the woman.[/su_pullquote]

Those who actually assail me, or who secretly abhor me, are many. He sets this over against the many tender mercies of God. It seems a strange thing that a truly godly man, as David was, should have many enemies; but it is inevitable. The disciple cannot be loved where his Master is hated. The seed of the serpent must oppose the seed of the woman: it is their nature.

Yet do I not decline from thy testimonies:

He did not deviate from the truth of God, but proceeded in the straightway, however many adversaries might endeavour to block up his path. Some men have been led astray by one enemy, but here is a saint who held on his way in the teeth of many persecutors. There is enough in the testimonies of God to recompense us for pushing forward against all the hosts that may combine against us. So long as they cannot drive or draw us into a spiritual decline our foes have done us no great harm, and they have accomplished nothing by their malice. If we do not decline they are defeated. If they cannot make us sin they have missed their mark. Faithfulness to the truth is victory over our enemies.
