Psalm 7: 11-13: “God is a just judge, and God is angry with the wicked every day.  If he does not turn back, He will sharpen His sword; he bends the bow and makes it ready.  He also prepares for Himself instruments of death; He makes His arrows into fiery shafts.”  God is angry – the indignation of God is directed at the enemies of His people.  Sharpen His sword – the imagery is of a great warrior preparing for battle.  The Warrior is the Lord and the battle is against the wicked.
