“God, the one who has reigned as king from long ago, will hear and humiliate them. (Selah) They refuse to change, and do not fear God.”
David felt despair because of enemy attacks. He did not give up because of God’s certain judgment. Refusal to change and fear God is a sure path to destruction.
Repentance is necessary for salvation, Lk 24.47. One must make the decision to change and then make the change. God’s people are repentant ones and confident of his judgment against those who refuse to change.
