Till All His Foes Submit—Part One
After the Ammonite king’s death, David sent servants to offer condolences to the king’s son and successor. His kindness was rejected, however, and his men were sent back in shame and humiliation. Joab, the army commander who was sent to deal with the enemies, exhorted his men to be courageous yet confident in God’s sovereign care. Alistair Begg shows how this passage points us to King Jesus, who covers our shame and whom we can trust to do what is good and right.
